Even if you don’t speak everything you think, doesn’t mean it still won’t affect you. Our mind controls everything in our body. What we think will go in our hearts. The Bible says in Luke 6:45 that “out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.” See the connection? What you think goes in your heart. What goes in your heart comes out of your mouth.
If you think you aren’t good enough, you’ll say you aren’t good enough. If you think judgement against someone, you will speak it out. If you think anger, you’ll speak anger. The enemy wants to steal your thought. He will use your thoughts to get in your heart. So instead, start thinking of the joy of the Lord and see joy come into your heart. Think of peace and peace will be in your heart. If you think forgiveness, then forgiveness will be in your heart and out of your mouth.
So today I challenge you. I challenge you to guard your thoughts. The next time they’re negative thoughts, change them. Don’t allow the enemy to take control of your thoughts. Instead, allow Gods word, and Godly thoughts in. Guard your thoughts and see blessings start to unfold in your life.
“A good person produces good out of the good stored up in his heart. An evil person produces evil out of the evil stored up in his heart, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart.”
Luke 6:45 CSB
