Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess. Hebrews 3:1 (NIV)
Fix My Thoughts
Will you allow me to do that for you? Will I allow you to do what for me? Will you allow me to fix your thoughts? Are you happy with all your thoughts? Are you content with what you are allowing your mind to think? Do you have thoughts that you would rather have pushed out of your heart and mind and life? Do you have thoughts that are discouraging and depressing? Do you have thoughts that are unhealthy and unhelpful? Do you have thoughts that are debilitating and defeating? I understand the point you are making. I know what you are saying to me. I am sure of what you are trying to show me. What point am I making? What am I saying to you? What am I trying to show you? My mind is filled with thoughts that are inconsistent with your call on my life. My mind is filled with thoughts that are not good and right and pleasing to you. You would like to fix my thoughts. Yes, I would. Yes, your mind is filled with thoughts that are unhelpful and unhealthy. I agree. That’s good.
How will you fix my thoughts? What work will you do in my heart and mind and life? How will you make me able to think and speak and act like you? That is a very insightful question. That question contains your answer. I’m not seeing it. Fix your thoughts on me and I will fix the thoughts of your mind. Keep your heart and mind and life focused on me and you will have my thoughts to think, words to speak and actions to take. If your thoughts are fixed on me, thoughts of the world cannot and will not remain in you. Fixing your thoughts on me will push worldly and sinful and evil thoughts out of your heart and mind and life. Fixing your thoughts on me will make you more and more like me every day as you love, follow and serve me. Fixing your thoughts on me will keep discouraging and depressing and debilitating and defeating thoughts out of your heart and mind and life. Fixing your thoughts on me will help you to live out your calling. You will know where I am leading you. You will know what I am asking of you. You will live the life I have called you to live. Will you fix your thoughts on me? Yes Lord, I will. That will be very good.
Lord, I will tell you what. My thoughts need fixing. I need to take my mind off the world and all its evil. I need to have undesirable thoughts pushed out of my heart and mind and life. So, I will fix all my thoughts on you. Transform all the thoughts of my mind. Amen
