FOCAL TEXT: Matthew 9 vs 4►► “But Jesus, knowing what they were thinking, replied, “Why do you have such evil thoughts in your hearts?.”~|ISV|______________________________________
GRACIOUS greetings, Cherished one. It is always better to mount guard over our thought life to enjoy and manifest the life of God as New Creations. A person who has mastered the art of right thinking is not far from living right. This goes beyond positive thinking or positive meditation. This is right thinking based on God’s revealed truths in Christ Jesus and His finished works. Positive thinking has your senses as the basis, but godly thinking feeds on God’s unfailing principles and truths.
Our focal text addresses the evil thoughts of certain scribes who thought Jesus had no power to heal or forgive sin. They called Jesus’ words blasphemy (Matthew 9:3). Someone healed of paralysis didn’t change their thoughts about Jesus. They had no pity for the sick person but Jesus had mercy and healed him yet they never rejoiced. That is evil thinking. Yes, the thought in their heart was bad, unprofitable and wicked. Beloved, war against evil thoughts. Evil thoughts are those that contradict the finished works of Christ and the blessed plans of God for your life. What thoughts do you accept into your heart?
Some think they might not live long. Some think a certain sickness in their family will end their life. Others think they might not enjoy life to the fullest due to their past mistakes. Some think a certain fearful calamity may befall them. Thoughts of sin, failure, defeat, death and pain are evil thoughts engineered by the devil to steal, kill and destroy your life. As a New Creation, you have the power to control the thoughts that come to your heart. Filter them by the word of God and enjoy the abundant life in Christ. Don’t accept evil thoughts. Cast them out in Jesus Mighty Name. The rich grace of our Lord Jesus Christ abounds towards you always.
Blessed Father, Your words have I hidden in my heart to build me up and give me inheritance. I boldly speak Your words by the power of the Holy Spirit. I refuse to allow evil thoughts into my heart. I cast them out by renewing my mind with Your truths in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen!
Pray and denounce every evil thought and activate right thoughts in your heart.
You are not safe until you are saved. Believe in Jesus Christ Now, if you haven’t.
