It is important that we be good stewards over our thoughts. Good thoughts or wrong thoughts are able to fill and penetrate our minds.  Our last devotional we looked at taking our thoughts captive. I will tie that devotional to today’s.
If we are undisciplined with guarding our minds, we will soon have thoughts flooding in and roaming about.   One bad thought will birth another, and before we know it our heart is troubled with imaginations of the very worst kind.  We will be filled to the full with anxiety, and our faith will surely waiver. Dwelling on bad things also have the ability to affect our health, and unforgiving thoughts have the ability to turn one’s heart bitter and tear down one’s countenance, and eventually take away all joy.  
Oh that we stay full of Jesus! Let us put every thought and deed to the test of it lining up with the holy Word of our Lord.  Our words that we will dwell on over the next few days are ~being filled.~.  God’s Word is a wonderful gift to us.   We are to cherish it, and make it our ONLY standard and guide to live by.   Lord, remind us to draw on Your Holy Spirit, and desire to be filled with all of You.   May we live and move and have our being in You!
“Fill your thoughts with my words until they penetrate deep into your spirit.  ” Proverbs 4:21   The Passion Translation
