He Knows My Thoughts

"When the Pharisee who had invited Him saw this, he said to himself, 'If this man were a prophet...' Jesus answered him..."(Lk. 7:39)----Christ holds us responsible for the things we say to ourselves. He reads our minds. My heart and mind are of greater importance to Him than my words and deeds. Our innermost places need daily purification. Part of the process is recognizing and confessing the judgmental, impure or critical thoughts before they can make their way to our mouths and our actions (Beth Moore-Jesus the One and Only).
Matt. 9:4 "Knowing their thoughts..."
Ps. 139:4 "Before a word is on my tongue, You know it completely, O Lord."
And my daily request to God---"Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord and keep watch over the door of my lips." Ps. 141:3

  1. Thank goodness we are saved by grace....if I had to remember every bad thought I have had I would be exhausted...feeling the strain of "the law"...Praise Him we are free to walk by His Spirit of peace and love and forgiveness. No condemnation in Christ Jesus. Thank you for sharing ~ many blessings!!

  2. I echo what Alice said.... I never really thought about Him knowing my thoughts.....but I guess He does know absolutely everything...

  3. No need to try to hide anything from him. I'm so glad he knows my every thought and deed and loves me anyway.
    Blessings,

  4. I'm thankful for the Holy Spirit who check me before I speak. Some times I haven't been still enough to listen and I fail to let Jesus shine.
