“Applying wisdom to your life each day will help you keep distractions and foolishness away.”
Not only does God want people to have clean hearts and clean hands, God also wants people to have clean thoughts. Whenever a person decides to do something; whether it be right or wrong, it will always begin with a thought. Once a seed is planted in a person’s mind, it will cause their thoughts to take root. Once the thought is formed, it eventually grows in the person’s heart which then produces the things that lead to a person doing the things they will or will not do. God knows the reasons behind everything a person does; whether the motive is right or wrong because God always knows a person’s thoughts. Even if a person lies to themself or others, they cannot lie to God because God knows everything, and will judge all things a person thinks, says and does.
Proverb 20:27 says “The Lord looks deep inside people and searches through their thoughts.” (NCV)
Proverb 21:2 says “You may think that everything you do is right, but remember that the Lord judges your motives.” (GNT)
Be blessed, be encouraged and have a great day.
