“But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the LORD his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper.”
(2 Kings 5:11)

Today’s Morsel: We are addicted to our thoughts. We cannot change anything if we cannot change our thinking. Solomon states that as a man thinketh so is he (Proverbs 23:7). If we can control our thoughts, we can control our actions. I believe this is one of the reasons that God gives us the gift of temperance with the Holy Ghost, to help control us. Mental instability is caused by the way people think. If you fear dying, your thoughts will always be about dying. If you fear loss, your thoughts will always be about loss and losing. If you fear evil, your thoughts will always be about evil. If you think that someone doesn’t like you or they hate you, your thoughts will always lean that way every time you see them, or you think about them. You must control your thoughts because they will control you. And in some cases, they don’t reward you very well.
Sing: Get your mind on Jesus, let’s have church. Get your mind on Jesus, let’s have church.
Put your hands together, both feet on the floor, let the Holy Ghost move you from the pulpit to the door. Somebody help me sing, somebody help me shout, somebody help sing, somebody help me shout. Get your mind on Jesus, let’s have church.
Thought For Today: The mind is a terrible thing to waste.
