What You Think is What You Are // Positively Speaking // Mark Wilson

What you think is what you are.

Proverbs 4:23 (New Century Translation) states, “Be careful what you think because your thoughts run your life.”

Proverbs 23:7 says,”as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

What you think is what you are.

Life’s greatest battlefield, then, is the human mind. That’s where the greatest victories are won, and the greatest losses are incurred.

Every good deed began as a seedling in the brain — a good thought.

Every evil deed also was spawned in the imagination.

Before the act, comes the thought.

Therefore, if we think right, we live right. We cannot expect to have trashy minds and clean lives at the same time. It doesn’t work that way.

2 Corinthians reminds us to “take every thought captive.” We mustn’t allow the little terrorists to run around unchecked in our minds. Un-captured thoughts can do a lot of damage.

Our challenge is to cast down evil imaginations and to fill our minds with faith inspiring truth.

“Finally brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)
