His calling is our mandate. 1 Peter 1:15 says, “But as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct.” Amplified adds, “…and manner of living.” All thoughts come from our intentions, and all actions come from thoughts.
Hebrews 4:12 says that it is God’s word ~ two-edged sword ~ that pierces, discerns, and exposes the thoughts and intentions of our heart. What resides in our heart feeds into our thought processes.
God’s ways are always to be our priorities. If you haven’t read Psalm 119 lately I encourage you to do so. It uses all manner of words to describe God’s word. Verse 1 says, “Blessed are the undefiled in the way, who walk in the law of the Lord!” Thoughts can build us up or tear us down. They can empower us or control us. It depends on what is stored in our hearts.
