Thoughts within. October 22
In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul. Psalm 94:19
I once read there’s not much we can do about the birds that fly over are head, the problems start when we let them build a nest in our hair.
There are a multitude of thoughts within us. Some encouraging and some discouraging. Especially in the times we live in right now. Many people thinking many things of fear and anger. Troublesome thoughts in troublesome times. But for you and I let’s be like the writer of psalm 94. He said when these thoughts swirl around me, then thy comforts delight my soul. You know what he did, he shooed away the birds and replaced them with the comforts of Gods word and Presence. What are some of these comforts: I will never leave you nor forsake you, come boldly to my throne and ask for help, I am the Lord thy God that healeth thee, confess your sin and I will forgive, meditate on me and I will give you peace, you are not appointed to wrath but to obtain salvation thru our Lord Jesus Christ. And so many other comforts just ripe and ready for the taking, found in the garden of his word. Today replace those negative thoughts with the comforts of God and he will bring us peace.
Hear me, O Lord; for thy lovingkindness is good: turn unto me according to the multitude of thy tender mercies. Psalm 69:16
So sure there is a multitude of thoughts, but also there is a multitude of his mercies to dwell upon. Let’s choose his truths and love, to dwell upon. God bless you today!!!
