Default Think God Thoughts

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may try to think God's thoughts after Him. I pray that my thoughts may be guided by His thoughts.

From Twenty-Four Hours a Day


Loved this reading but the phrase that followed the title I posted gave me new enlightenment and a new way of looking at things.

"Think God Thoughts after Him!" If I turn my will and my life over to God, after making the decision to look for Him in Step Two, then follow it up with Step Three by finding the quiet and listen in the stillness to pray and listen for His answers, then what comes through is either God Thoughts if I have put my thoughts into His care.

Sometimes my thoughts can get in the way so it is important to quiet them if not eliminate them before I start. Quiet the chatter, and then His Love and Direction can come through.

I have always done that in recovery, but for some reason this put a new perspective on it for me.

This reminds me of the banners, pins, etc, "What would Jesus do?"

He walked the talk and in my first year in recovery, I would take my Bible and only used the Books of the New Testament from Acts to Revelation, Psalms and Proverbs for my daily meditation. I thought the Old Testament was old news.

Later I was to realize, I was limiting God. I not only had a narrow outlook on religion, and an anger against the church, that I had to expand my vision and I went on a spiritual journey that broadened my understanding of my Higher Power.

When I think God thoughts, I have a good day! God is good. Good is God!

He is the Light that directs my path.
