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.
There are days we wander “why am I thinking like this?” Well I ask you and me, “where does my thoughts wonder to and why?” Are my thoughts on the things of this world or are they on the cares of this life.
In Matthew 6:25-34 it tells “take no thought” for…..
In verse 34 and 35 I believe are the very essence of what we ought to think on beside the verse here in Philippians 4:8.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34 Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
When we have allowed ourselves to be caught up in the cares and worries of the day, sometimes looking at what tomorrow might hold, we destroy the joy the Lord has prepared for today. We miss out on all His wonderful blessings. As the world says, “Stop and smell the roses.” We are instructed to, “Taste and see that the Lord is good.” Why? We learn trust in this place and we will be blessed for our time with Jesus. (Psalms 34:8)
So I ask you and prompt myself to stop looking around at the ‘what if’s’, ‘whys’ and ‘but this or that’…. and see and experience the fullness of the Lord. Set your mind on Him and all His provision and glory.
By His grace, as we seek Him His hope is revealed moment by moment and new each day just as His mercies are.
Praise God and have a most wonderfully blessed day. God bless you.
