Private Whispers

Before you think that your thoughts will stay yours, and no one will know what you think about, remember this verse. Thoughts have a funny way of making their way out into the open. Thoughts manifest into behaviors. Behaviors give the lie to your words, especially if you are playing the hypocrite. The only way to prevent this is to act with integrity. Your life accords itself with your thoughts. Whatever a man thinks, so he is.

But I’m only human. I can’t always say what I think. But this too we are prepared for. Take every thought captive to the throne of Christ. Every thought must be measured according to how well it accords with our life in Christ. This too comes with practice.

I want to encourage you so that your walk and your talk both reflect a growing and mature faith in Christ Jesus. God bless you today!
