The Importance of Treasuring God's Word


By Elizabeth George

The foundation for a healthy thought-life is God's Word.  God has chosen to communicate with us through the Bible.  Therefore, His Word is to take priority over everything else we might choose as the basis of our thoughts, actions, and feelings.

The power God extends to us through His Word--and through thinking on His Word--can lift us out of the depths of defeat, discouragement, despair, doubt, dread, and depression and enable us to deal with the challenges that come our way.

With our thoughts based on the Word and Person of God, we find strength, hope, joy, faith, and peace of heart, soul, and mind.


Every time you hold your thoughts up against God's standards of what is true and what is real...and then choose to "think on these things," you are loving God with all your mind. With His help, His Word, and His Spirit, you can triumph over negative emotions, damaging thoughts, and destructive attitudes.


Another crucial step toward loving God with all our mind is determining to place the Bible's truths above everything we think or feel. ...God uses His truth to break the cycle of destructive thinking that leads to discouragement, despair, doubt, and depression.
