Our Thoughts

Psalms 139:2 2 You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. (NIV)

God know our thoughts even before we are aware of what we are thinking.  I don’t know about you but this concerns me.  I have thoughts from time to time that I wouldn’t want anyone to know, especially God.  I am so thankful I have Jesus as my defender.  When God the Father brings up one of my thoughts Jesus will say He died for that thought and I’m forgiven.  I don’t dwell on my bad thoughts.  As soon as I’m aware of them, I push them out and replace them with good ones.  It might be a thought as simple as judging why someone is how they are in a negative way.  I replace it with how much God loves that person.  It’s so comforting to know I’m forgiven for those bad thoughts.  On the other side, God also knows my loving, good thoughts.  But I’m responsible to see that these thoughts are carried out into action.  Just having a good thought is like saying we’ll pray for someone.  They do no good if not carried out in action.  Let’s toss out the bad thoughts immediately, replace them with good thoughts then carry those good thoughts out in action.
