No Thought Is Harmless
by Dr. Caroline Leaf
Thoughts are real - they occupy mental real estate. Every thought has a “heart” - the intention of that thought. God looks at this ‘heart’ (Jeremiah 17:10).
When we are not using our minds (intellect, will and emotions) to listen to what the Holy Spirit lays down in the depths of our spirit, then we will be listening to the lies of the enemy. Whatever we listen to, we will think about and whatever we think about grows into a physical thought with this ‘heart’ being reflected as our attitude.
People pick up on our attitudes - the intent of the thought - not the detail of the thought. The brain is designed with various structures that facilitate this to happen. So...reflecting our ‘hearts’ is how God designed us.
