Take no thought
Take no thought, saying…
“Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? or, what shall we drink? or, how shall we be clothed?” (Matthew 6:31)

If Jesus said to take no thought, that would imply that we have the ability to do just that! Thoughts ARE going to come, fear, worry, doubt, defeat, intimidation, the how questions, the why questions, BUT, you DON’T have to take them!

Just because thoughts come doesn't mean that you have to take them. When the enemy shows up and says “here, I have something for you”, tell him “I take no thought!” It’s a continuous battle, but we are in Christ and have ALL the victory, so there is no need to EVER take thought!

When the thought comes, then what? Have you ever looked at someone when they were talking to you but you were thinking about something else? When they were done, you had no idea what they said. Well, you can do that to the devil also. As soon as the thought comes, start thinking The Word. Think about who you are in Christ, think on all of His promises to you. Sing a Godly song. Say “I take no thought!”
How do you know if you have taken a thought? “Take no thought, saying.” You speak it. The spoken word has power. Remember life and death are in the power of our words (Proverbs 18:21). If you are talking about it, you have “taken thought.”
What should you be thinking about? “And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.”

Blessed thoughts,
