How’s your thought life?
Did you know what you think about greatly influences your feelings and your actions? To feel right and act right, then pay attention to your thought life. When you control your thought life, you’ll not only feel and act like the Christian that God wants you to be, you’ll please your Father.
Thought Life and Truth
In fact, Philippians 4:8 commands us to think on whatever is true.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Our thought life must begin and end with the foundation of truth set forth in Scripture. “Thy Word is Truth” (Psalms 119:160). The principles of Scripture must under gird what we think AND the very motivations for thinking it! Deep in your heart, what motivates you? A desire for security, comfort, pleasure, approval?

Thought Life and Experiences
God promises to be faithful and never forsake us. He promises victory as we obey His Word. He has given us multiple examples in Scripture of people just like us who have worked through all kinds of difficult circumstances in a way that glorified God and brought great peace and joy to the believers.
Consider Peter, David, Tamar, Rahab, and Moses. Each of them had difficulties. What difficult circumstance have you faced this week? What lies were you tempted to believe?
