Thinking On God’s Word (The Bible) Is Much More Than Positive Thinking. Build Your Life On Jesus Christ

Finally, brethren,
whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are
just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever
things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise,
think on these things (Philippians 4:8)

The things listed in this scripture are by no means
exhaustive. Paul only wanted us to have the idea of the kind of things God’s
children should think or meditate on. Some people think positively according to
the teachings of intellectual men rather than according to the Bible. That’s
not correct!

You have to understand that nothing else can put you over in
life except God’s Word. Thinking on God’s Word (The Bible) is much more than
positive thinking.  The Bible says,
through knowledge shall the just be put over, that is, delivered into their
inheritance (Proverbs 11:9). I want you to realize this is not talking about
knowledge of science or philosophy; this refers to revelation knowledge, which
the Holy Spirit imparts to you as you study God’s Word. Man can only give you
his philosophy; his wisdom never works.

It’s a shame to find how people respect men who have acquired
a lot of money and become famous, but forget what really matters. True life is
only in the Word of God; you must realize that! Don’t build your life on some
philosopher; build your life on Jesus Christ and His Living Word – The Bible.
God’s Word gives life. Think on it. Let it fill your thoughts morning, noon and
night. Whatever things are pure, just, honest, lovely, of good report, full of
praise and virtue are what you should think on I don’t think there’s anything
in all of creation that can be truer, more just , more honest, lovelier and of
better report than the Word of God. It’s actually an exhortation to think on
His Word. Spend time daily to think on God’s Word. Your words and actions are a
function of your thinking. If you think right, you will talk right and you will
surely live right!

Whenever you find yourself in a challenging situation,
instead of thinking on the problem and magnifying it, simply get hold of God’s
Word and begin to think and meditate on it! As you reflect upon God’s Word, there’ll
be a transformation, a metamorphosis, a transfiguration that will bring about a
solution and a permanent change in your life.


Lord, Your Word is in
my heart and in my mouth, I meditate upon it day and night and thereby make my
way prosperous, in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
