TOPIC: WHATSOEVER THINGS ARE TRUE
“Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth.” – (John 17:17)
READ: Philippians 4:8 (KJV)
Your mind is the seat of your soul. Whatever you think or meditate on with your mind gets into your heart and eventually determines the kind of person that you become. That is why Proverbs 23:7 says: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he… The quality of your life is determined by what you allow to get into your heart through your mind. This is why the Bible says in Proverbs 4:23: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
This is why it is important that you only think on the things advised in our Bible reading today. Anything that is correct in every form may be considered to be true. For example, if you see a caterpillar and you call it a butterfly, that is the truth. The fact that you don’t see its wings does not mean that it does not have any. The fact that it is crawling today does not mean that it cannot fly. It may look like a worm now, but it is far more than that.
Likewise, you may look like you are poor now, but that is not the truth about you. The truth about you is that God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory (Philippians 4:19). It may look like you are sick now, but think on the truth in God’s word which says you have already been healed by Jesus’ stripes (1 Peter 2:24).
From our memory verse for today, we see that the word of God is the truth and John 1:14 says that Jesus is the Word. This therefore means that we must always meditate on the word of God. Anything outside the word of God is a lie and you must not allow it dwell in your mind. The Truth says that you will be the head and not the tail (Deuteronomy 28:13), so never believe that you are a failure.
The Truth says God is with you always (Matthew 28:20), so never believe that you are going through anything alone. The Truth says that no weapon fashioned against you shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17), so never believe that anyone can harm you. Read your Holy Bible regularly so that you can know the truth, then meditate on that truth that you know.
ACTION POINT: Think only on the word of God, not on the circumstances and situations around you.
