Psalm 19:14 Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
I want my meditation of my heart to be pleasing to God. I must admit, however, that I often have a very wrong thought life. To paraphrase a friend on Facebook; I sometimes like to wallow in guilt and shame. I like to think of myself as a failure. I like to see where I don’t do a good job. I sometimes seem to like the masochist feeling of self inflicted pain. I doubt myself. I play mind games.
The real problem is that as my friend said I am insulting the finished work of the cross where my sins were taken care of. I am not under condemnation. I am supposed to glory in the forgiveness that I have in the Lord Jesus.
I must believe and remember that He has taken care of my sin and failure. I must learn to control my thoughts and place them on the Lord Jesus and what He has done!
Do you have problems in your thought life like I do? Do these thoughts hinder you from being and doing what God wants you to do? Do they make you wake up feeling like a loser.
We are more than conquerers. We are victorious through Jesus and should live out our faith in Him!
