What We Think, We Become
What we think, we become is an old saying indeed, but truer words were never written. Today’s Bible verse, Proverbs 23:7, speaks this truth loud and clear for us. However, many of us may not realize the importance of truly taking this instruction seriously. In today’s article and morning prayer we discuss the importance of aligning our thoughts with those of Jesus. Thereby setting us upon a firm foundation to walk along the narrow path that leads to eternal life.
How We Become What We Think
Our thoughts are the starting point of a progression that ultimately determines our destiny. Below are the plateaus that each of us go to on our way to realizing our destiny. Our ultimate destiny is the product of who we are, and it all starts with our thoughts.
- Your thoughts become your words

- Your character defines your destiny
As you can clearly see, starting with good thoughts is the key to becoming who God desires us to be. So, to align our thoughts with Jesus, we need help. This is where relying upon Holy Spirit comes in.
Letting Holy Spirit Guide What We Think
Allowing Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts will always direct us to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Holy spirit led thoughts will lead us to thoughts that Jesus would have us think, ultimately leading us to becoming a better person overall. Allow your thoughts to seek the one who is always there. When we can do this, we can become who God intends us to be. Today’s prayer asks the Father to help us think thoughts that are Holy Spirit led. so that what we think, we become.
