Beware What You Think – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 18 December 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: These are the things which defile a man…Matthew 15:19-20
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you don’t want to act it, then don’t think it.
In life, actions are fuelled by thought. Our anchor scripture confirms that it is thought that fuels action. And action in turn determines manifestation. The Scripture says, For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts… and these evil thoughts flow into murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, etc. So, thought is powerful. To think it now is to act it later. To think it now is to act it with time. To think it now is to manifest it with time. The point is, if you don’t want to act it, then don’t think it.
People commit suicide after they have thought about it for a while; they must have calculated all the options. They allowed depressive thoughts for a while: ‘Why am I alive? What is life all about? Is God even aware that I exist?’ And then they keep on thinking such depressive thoughts until the devil whispers to them, ‘Just take your life.’
So, thought fuels action. Action proceeds to manifestation and manifestation determines outcome. Action also determines reaction. For instance, a person’s thought can move him to act in a criminal way, and then he gets the reaction of it, which is ending in jail.
Beloved, beware of what you allow into your heart. Beware of what you think about. If the outcome of a thought is not what you desire, don’t entertain it. If you don’t want to manifest it with time, then don’t think it at all.
Remember this: If you don’t want to act it, then don’t think it.
1. Ask for the Holy Ghost to take over your mind.
2. Stay away from associations, sounds and sights that can suggest defiling, harmful and destructive thoughts.
3. Immediately eject unhealthy thoughts from your mind.
