You Are What You Think
Have you ever noticed that you become what you think most about? You hatch a plan in your mind. You spend time building it in your thoughts. You weigh it out. If you give time and energy to the plan – whether good or bad – eventually you will take action.
Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Your sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer.
─ Psalm 19:14 NKJV
The psalmist in our verse today prayed for the words he spoke and the thoughts he meditated on to please the Lord because he knew that we become what we think about most.
Think the thoughts God has about you.
Throughout Scripture, our verse today is reinforced:
What you think about eventually comes out of your mouth (Matthew 12:34).
A presumptuous sin is deliberately planned in the mind before it is acted on (Psalm 19:13).
A man or woman is who they think they are (Proverbs 23:7).
That’s why it’s so important to meditate on who God says you are. As you agree with Scripture in your thoughts, you will become the person God desires you to be. And you’ll speak words that align with His Word.
