Pure Thoughts

22 Repent of this wickedness and pray to the Lord in the hope that He may forgive you for having such a thought in your heart. ~ Acts 8:22NIV

Ever heard of the saying, it’s the thought that counts? Well, in this case, when the thinker doesn’t act upon his evil thought, and he doesn’t even allow it to escape his lips. The thought that he allows himself to ponder and build a fantasy from is a transgression against God.

Now, when a thought enters your mind in the form of a temptation, cast it down. Don’t let evil thoughts give birth in your mind. Don’t let temptation infiltrate your imagination. All of our actions stem from our thoughts, so we must control them. We must bring them into submission because our thoughts don’t control us; we control our thoughts.

The LORD, our God, won’t hold anyone guiltless that is consumed by their thoughts. Why? Because it’s a matter of the heart. God wants a pure heart and clean hands so that we might not be a slave to the world. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed, for where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is freedom.

Dear heavenly Father, forgive me from my ungodly thoughts and help me to have pure, holy thoughts. Thoughts of love and kindness. Thank You for cleansing me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
