Think on these things....Philippians 4:8
I love these words. I have been doing a study on this verse and I can relate to that. The Bible speaks to us through its words. It convicts us and it corrects and guides us. God's Word is magnificent to say the least. I can relate this verse to my own situation. I have had struggles with thinking on things that are true, just, honest, pure, love, lovely, and are of good report. I just believe that with having obsessive thoughts, it can be an automatic struggle. I am of the belief that God has the answer to everything and so does His Word. Having obsessive thoughts are and can be annoying to say the least. I believe that God's Word is a panacea to my mind as well as the rest of my being. I realize that this verse is about thinking on the things of God, at least that is how I interpret it. God's Word is truth. It replicates His true nature and it gives the good news. He can give us peace, forgiveness, and salvation. The thoughts I realize are not based on anything in my life so I realize that best I can do is to not dwell on them. The best thing I can do is to dwell on what is true. We are to live holy and so we should also think and meditate on holiness as well.
