PROVERBS 4:23 (GNT)
‘Be careful how you think; your life is
shaped by your thoughts’.
7 “Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the law my
servant Moses gave you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left,
that you may be successful wherever you go. 8 Keep this Book of the
Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you
may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be
prosperous and successful.
8 Before the spies lay down for the night, she went up on the roof
9 and said to them, “I know that the LORD has given you this land

how the LORD dried up the water of the Red Sea for you when
you came out of Egypt, and what you did to Sihon and Og, the two
kings of the Amorites east of the Jordan, whom you completely
destroyed. 11 When we heard of it, our hearts melted in fear and
everyone’s courage failed because of you, for the LORD your
God is God in heaven above and on the earth below.
1. Don’t allow bad thoughts to linger in your mind.
2. Allow only good thoughts to stay in your mind.
‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is
noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is
lovely, whatever is admirable - if anything is excellent or
praiseworthy-think about such things.
