Some Bible Verses About our Thoughts

a collection of #Bible verses about our thoughts #scripture Big hugs to you guys for making Wednesday our biggest day yet for this little blog! That post was born out of a text conversation with Kim while she shopped at Old Navy. I was telling her about my crush on the pants and exactly how I’d wear them when she said “blog about it!” So glad you guys enjoyed it!

 

I know there are tools and books that index Bible verses by topic, but I just love having them shared with me in a great sermon. It’s like a game of connect the dots. The pastor of my church recently preached a message on Philippians 4:8-9 and renewing our minds, and I thought I’d share many of the verses here that he used during his message.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you. – Philippians 4:8-9

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. – Romans 12:2

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. – Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)

We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. – 2 Corinthians 10:5

To watch or listen to the original message from Pastor Mike Minter at Reston Bible Church go here (the video is at the bottom under the discussion questions).

Do you guys think this is fun, too? Or is it just me?

  1. This fits right in with what Kim’s been talking about in regard to getting close to God in order to follow His leading. It seems like one aspect of drawing near to God is keeping our minds, our thoughts, the meditations of our hearts focused on God–so that we get to know the character of God more fully and can more readily discern His leading. Not to mention the fact that keeping our mind on God helps to keep our mind off the things that distract us or keep us from following God (fear, anxiety, desires for things apart from God, etc.). Thanks for sharing these verses, Steph!
