Memory Full!

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 nlt)

There have been times when I’ve filled up the memory on my computer. I’ll try to open a document, and a message suddenly pops up, informing me there isn’t enough memory.

Wouldn’t it be great if the next time the devil comes along with an evil thought, a little message would pop up in our minds that said “Memory Full”? Wouldn’t it be fantastic if our minds were full of the Word of God?

We need to think very carefully about what we expose ourselves to, about what kind of information we put into our minds. Imagine if we just thought carefully about what we said before we said it. We’re so quick to complain. We’re so quick to say random things.

The acronym THINK is a good filter to apply to what we say, before we say it. Is it truthful? Is it helpful? Is it inspiring? Is it necessary? Is it kind? Imagine how different things would be if we ran everything through this grid before we actually said it.

I think we all could use a good brainwashing. Usually that’s a negative term. But I think we need our brains cleansed from all the junk we fill them with and instead wash them with the Word of God.

Think about what you say. Present your mind to God. Present your thoughts to Him. Present your words to Him. Present your hands to Him. Present your feet to Him. The Bible says, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the gospel of peace, who bring glad tidings of good things!” (Romans 10:15 nkjv).

When we go out and share the gospel, we’re using our feet, our hands, our minds, and our mouths for the purpose for which God has created them. Let’s start there.
