May all my thoughts be pleasing to him.
Psalms 104:34 (NLT)
Just because we think something doesn’t mean it is good and pleasing to God. Lustful, hateful, immoral thoughts are obviously wrong and need to be rebuked and replaced by the right kind of thinking. However there are many seemingly “borderline” thoughts that we think that end up slipping right under the radar. We do not stop to consider whether or not these thoughts please God. They seem so normal, so right and so natural. However, many of our fearful and doubtful thoughts stand as affront to faith in God. He is not pleased. Jealous, bitter, and angry thoughts often dwell in our mind and we never stop to consider God’s opinion on them. Negative self-beliefs stand against the truth of God’s love for us and the pride He has in us as His beloved creation. The Apostle Paul took our thoughts seriously and wrote, “We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ.” Today, listen to what you are thinking and repent of any thoughts that do not please God and replace them with those that do.
Dear Lord, help me with my thinking. Holy Spirit help me catch my thoughts and examine them. Point out to me where I need correction. Father, I want to please you in everything I think and do. Help me I pray.
