Hebrews 4:12-13

12. For the word of God is alive and powerful. It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow. It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires. 13. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed before his eyes, and he is the one to whom we are accountable. NLT

How would you feel if a new technology made people able to input your name in a search engine and then have the ability to hear your thoughts for the past five weeks? Do you know Jesus hears your thoughts better than any such technology could enable?

Many times we ask the HOLY Spirit to fill our hearts but we still occupy it with thoughts that are unholy. When a thought is allowed to linger, it can become a meditation, and unacceptable meditations repel the Holy Spirit.

Ps 19:14 saysLet the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord...”

Nothing is hidden from God. Past, present and future are clear to Him, he cannot be deceived. Our thoughts, just like our actions, go a long way in determining who we are, for as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Our thoughts also have the power to defile us.

When God returns to judge the world, he will judge both our actions and thoughts, therefore, get rid of evil thoughts. See Read Rev 2:23.

Go into today knowing that God sees your actions and know your thoughts, seek to think on only things that are pure, holy and edifying, this is the best way to expel unwholesome thinking (see Phil 4:8).

Prayer: heavenly Father, please refine my heart, help me to please you even in my thoughts, in Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
