Our thought life as Christians is crucial to our growth and sustainment in the will of our Heavenly Father. Our meditation in the morning and at night works to perfect our ability to cast down imaginations that work to exalt itself above the knowledge that we have of God.
Our meditation keeps us from wandering in our flesh and allowing the devil to receive a foothold in our life. It is our meditation that keeps us connected to Jesus. It is the abiding in him that grants us access to God’s power to produce righteousness and operate in spiritual gifts.
When we fail to meditate on the Lord Jesus Christ, we fail. Our flesh is weak and cannot be depended upon to commit righteous acts without deliberate doses of Jesus in the morning and night. It is your thought life that will determine your success in Jesus and whether or not you will be prepared for His coming.
Your meditation is watching. Your directed thoughts are making you ready to receive the power of God. Your directed thoughts makes you a good husband or wife. A good father or mother. A good brother or sister. A good friend. A good boss. A good employer and employee.
God requires us to take responsibility for directing our thoughts on Him.
