Carl’s Thoughts on Thoughts
The devil can and does sometimes control what we think about and how we see situations. So before we act or get upset we need to ask ourselves where are these thoughts coming from, and who do they reflect.
The devil is the father of lies and the king of deception so we must take every thought captive to obey Christ.
We should check to see if the thoughts we are thinking will glorify and buildup God and His kingdom, or will it add to the deception and hate.
We need to slow down, pray and think before we speak or act.
The devil can polish his lies until it shines bright and beautiful but it is still just a lie and not of Christ.
Peter warns us to be sober-minded; and watchful. For our adversary, the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Any wrong thought or angry word can be used by the devil to gain a foothold in your life. And once he had a foothold his poison will spread like a cancer devouring who you are.
How are we to know which thoughts are from God and which are from the evil one?  Seek the truth where truth is found in the word of God. Pray, meditate and study God’s word. Join in discussion with fellow believers in bible study and devotion.
Put on the full armor of God; and walk in His holy way.

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
