GOD UNDERSTANDS OUR THOUGHTS (by benaiah juma).
Gen 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
Gen 6:6 And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
God is all powerful and his knowing capacity is unlimited. God is all knowing. He knows each and every thought that runs in our mind in each and every second. God loves and enjoys when we meditate on righteousness and good works but He is deeply offended when we think on evil. Jehovah is a holy God and sin is the antithesis of him. The battle is for your mind. Once the devil has control of your mind, he will cause you to display a reprobate kind of behavior.
The lost do deeds that show they are lost because the devil has captured their mind. Once you feed your mind with the decadence and ungodliness of this world you will behave according to the will of Satan and his angels. The lord Jesus Christ warned us that whoever looks at a woman to lust after her, has already committed adultery with her in his heart. This warning applies to females also. If you are a girl and you look at a man and lust after him, you have committed adultery with him in your heart. This is an instruction by which we will be judged. This means that God knows everything that runs inside our inner beings, no one can deceive him nor can we hide anything from Him.
When you think evil in your heart it counts, the word of God tells us that every thought of foolishness is sin. The devil constantly bombards us with evil thoughts so that they can succeed in dragging us to the ways of the flesh. The word of God advices us to capture every wicked imagination and bring it to the obedience of Christ. When evil thoughts arise in your mind, control your mind and make it to focus on things which please the creator or things that are worthy of respect.
Pro 24:9 The thought of foolishness is sin: and the scorner is an abomination to men.
Your brains were given to you by God, do not use your mind to think about sex, rape, killing, backbiting others, slandering other people, mocking people, stealing or doing things which are contrary to sound doctrine. The word of God advices us to mediate on the word of God. Learn to meditate on God’s word for that is pleasing to the creator of heaven and earth. When you think on the word of God you will receive blessings from God.
Psa 1:1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
Psa 1:2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
Psa 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
The word of God tells us in the book of Genesis that God saw the imagination of man’s heart was continuously evil. This is because he sees through us. No one can deceive God. If you think on evil you will not inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ told us in the book of Mathew out of the heart proceeds evil thoughts and this are the things which defile a man. Evil thoughts defile a person because it is an offence and abomination before God. If you have been meditating on evil, quit that habit, repent and learn to think on things worthy of respect.
Mat 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies:
Mat 15:20 These are the things which defile a man: but to eat with unwashen hands defileth not a man.
God is grieved and deeply offended by evil thoughts, it is one of the 7 things that God hates in the book of proverbs. Watch out on what you feed yourself during the day because they will end up playing a big role on what you think. Do not look at immoral things or else you will develop immoral thoughts. Do not make an idol of looking at girls dressed in miniskirts and leggings or else they will seduce you and you end up thinking about sex.
Learn to resist evil thoughts and when you are good at it you will have less evil thoughts. Feed yourself with the word of God and things which add value to you intellectually and your thinking processes will change, otherwise there is no eternal life if you meditate on evil. Thanks for reading and be blessed in Jesus name.
