Message for September 1, 2013 from Pastor Shirley

“Then God said, “Let there be light, and there was light.”  (Genesis 1:3) The very first words uttered forth came from a thought and then spoken. The whole universe came into existence because of a thought and a spoken word. Genesis 1:26-28 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image.”-so God created man in His own image-God blessed them. We are spiritual beings created in the image of God. We are here because of a thought and a spoken word that took place at the beginning of time.

Proverbs 23:7 “For as a he (man or woman) thinks in his heart so is he.” Whatever you continually harbor in your mind (thought) will eventually come out in your speech (words). Your words are like seeds which will produce fruit. Proverbs 18:21 “ Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof. “

God had life on his mind (thoughts) when He spoke and created human beings.  We as his creation should be continually mindful of what we are thinking and how our spoken words (from those thoughts) are framing our personal lives. We are to fill our hearts and minds with life giving biblical truths from the Bible.

I remember many years ago the Spirit of the Lord had spoken, “Do not allow your mind to become the playground for the devil.” Wow! We read in Romans 8:6to set our minds on the flesh is death but to set our mind on the Spirit is life and peace.” We are instructed in 1 Corinthians 10:4-5 to take every thought captive.

What are you thinking-just listen to how you are talking!
