Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Thoughts – Hebrews 3-1 – Fix Your Thoughts – Growing As Disciples

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

Fix my thoughts. Now, that is a thought. My thoughts have been all over the map. I have thought high and lofty thoughts. I have thought good and pure and right thoughts. I have thought helpful thoughts. Then I have thought what I shudder to think. I have thought dark and sinful thoughts. I have thought what I would be embarrassed to admit. My mind has been a battleground between opposing thoughts that war against each other. I have been trying to guard my thoughts. I have been resisting thoughts that I know are not pleasing to you. I know that I am in danger. Why is that? Thoughts become words and words become deeds and deeds add up to how a life is lived. In every way I want to live a life that is pleasing in your sight. Without a change in my thinking I know that will not be possible. Do you have any idea what I am going through? Can you help me in anyway? Can I help you in anyway? I can help you in every way. I know exactly what you are going through. I lived a life filled with temptations just like yours. Because I was tempted I am able to help you in all your temptations. How can you help me?

You need to do two things. First you need to take your mind off of evil thoughts. Where you go and what you do can feed evil thoughts. Remove yourself from any person, place, activity or circumstance that will feed evil and sinful thoughts. You are going to put sinful and evil thoughts on a starvation diet. Do you understand exactly what I am saying to you? Yes, you are telling me to completely leave my life of sin. You have heard that before. You are listening to me. Yes, I am. When you left your life of sin you started following me. Yes, I did. That’s good. Did you think leaving your life of sin and deciding to follow me was a one-time decision? I thought it was a one-time decision. You are only partly right in that thought. You did make a once and for all time decision. I am your Savior and Lord. My Holy Spirit lives and dwells inside of you. Every day and through every moment of each day you will have the opportunity to reaffirm your decision by walking away from sin to keep on following me. You will be taking your heart and mind off of evil and sinful thoughts. Then, you will fix your heart and mind and thoughts on me. I will be the focus of your attention. I will help you to think my thoughts and walk in my ways. I will lead you through life. I will help you on your way. I will help you to live a life that is pleasing to me. Do you get all of this? Yes, I do. I will take my thoughts off of sin and fix them on you. That’s right. Will you do that? Yes, I will.

Lord, often my thoughts have wandered from one worry to another. At other times temptations have tried to attack me through my thinking. Help me to fix my thoughts on you. Change my heart and transform my mind as I keep all my thoughts on you. Amen

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Promises – Day 108 – Hebrews 3:1 – Fix Your Thoughts – Growing As Disciples

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

Discipleship Devotional Study Guide – Becoming Like Christ – Day 222- Hebrews 3:1 – Fix Your Thoughts – Growing As Disciples

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 

I know that my thoughts are not your thoughts. I know that my ways are not your ways. Your thoughts and ways are much higher and better than my thoughts and ways. That seems like a little gigantic understatement. Your thoughts and ways are higher and better than mine by something like the entire universe. That is true. I can’t tell you how many times I have discovered that my thoughts and words and actions were completely out of alignment with your will and your ways. Then of course there are the almost unlimited amount of times that I have been completely unaware of how out of sync I have been with you. If I didn’t know better, I would say that I am a hopeless case, that there is no chance for me to be able to know and do your will. But that would be completely incorrect. Why is that? What is it that you know? I know that you want me to know your thoughts and ways. Not only that, you want me to live and walk in your ways. Even better than that, you will make me able to think your thoughts and walk in your ways. You seem quite confident. My confidence is not in myself, that is for sure. My confidence is in you. That is a very good place for you to place your confidence. I can place all my faith and hope and trust in you. Yes, you can.

How will you come to know me? How will you come to know my thoughts and ways? How will you be able to live and walk in my ways? I will draw near to you. I will quiet myself before you. I will focus my heart and mind and life on you. I will fix my thoughts on you. I will live in an intimate relationship with you. I will listen to what you have to say to me. I will allow you to change my thinking and reorder my priorities. I will put your word into practice. I will go where you guide me. I will do what you ask of me. I will follow and obey you. I know that you will give me your thoughts to think, words to speak and actions to take. You will fix my thoughts as I fix my thoughts on you.  Yes, I will, you can be certain of that. Thank you, Lord.

Lord, if there is one thing I need to do, it is to fix my thoughts on you. My heart and mind and life need to be focused on you. I want to know you. I want my life to be in alignment with you. I want to know and do your will. I want to live my life fully for you. Amen
