Do you know that no one talks to you more than you talk to yourself?
It sounds crazy, but it's true. You talk to yourself about what to wear, where to go and what to do. You talk about your grocery list and your bank account. And then there are the heavier conversations you have about your successes, your failures, your past and your future.
The words we say to ourselves and about ourselves can affect our actions and our beliefs. Our thoughts have consequences. We have to be careful to protect our hearts from what is in our minds if our thoughts do not line up with what God says about us.
"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things." Philippians 4:8
What we say to ourselves is just as important as what we say to others. Filter your thoughts through God's Word. Let it be the most influential voice in your life.
