Higher Ground

16 06 2011

And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.  Philippians 4:8

I recently heard someone refer to our collective personal thoughts on a daily basis as our “thought life”. It is an interesting term to describe what and how we think about things. For most of us, we spend a great amount of time pondering about feelings, situations, emotions, problem solving or simply achieving understanding. This passage describes the importance of maintaining our focus on things that meet a high standard of truth, honor and excellence. Committing our focus and our “thought life” on this higher ground creates a foundation for us to clearly see God in our lives. Higher thoughts translate into higher conversations with others, better decisions and a more blessed journey with the Lord. I am thankful to God for the opportunity and His Word that guides us to move to Higher Ground.
