“Fill your thoughts with my words
Until they penetrate deep into your spirit.
Then as you unwrap my words
They will impart to you true life
And radiant health
Into the very core of your being.” ~ Proverbs 4:21-22
God’s Word is extraordinarily powerful! We are encouraged in the Scripture above to fill our minds with His words. And when we do, we’re promised life—true life, and radiant health in our very core. I know from my own experience this works.
Some years ago, I was in a lot of pain, and couldn’t sleep at night because of it. Not being able to sleep at night is no fun! The devil would mess with my mind during those long, sleepless nights, and I became too exhausted and weak to fight back. I knew God cared, but I didn’t know what to do.
Finally, I decided to record promises from the Bible, and then at night I’d listen to them over and over. That way, instead of worrying about what might happen to me, I was filling my mind with God’s promises. Gradually, everything changed. Focusing on the power of truths from His Word changed my thoughts and my outlook on life. It was amazing!
I encourage you to find Scriptures that are meaningful to you, and promises you can claim. Write them out, even memorize them, bring them to mind often, and talk to God about them. Reflect on them during the day, until they, “… penetrate deep into your spirit.” Let the power of God’s Word renew your mind and your outlook on life!
