For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, says the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts (Psalms 55:8-9).
Think On These Things
By Pat Phelps

This mind is its own place,” says Milton, “and in itself can make heaven of hell or hell of heaven.” The man in jail thought himself there. He was mentally a thief, or a thug, are a murder first. The lawyer is made by thinking law. The artist is made by thinking art. The same is true of the musician, the scientist, the physician, or the teacher. Of course, there other things that help the process along, but no specialist is made without thinking his specialty. So the Christian is made by thinking in terms of Christ. “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” Whatsoever things are true—think on these things. Why? Because that is the only way to be true! Whatsoever things are honest—think on these things. Why? Because this leads to honest actions! Whatsoever things are just, or pure, lovely or of good report, think on these things. Why! By so thinking, they become a part of our character.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he,” says the inspired writer. The things we are thinking today are determining what we will be tomorrow. An old adage admonished, “Sow a thought, reap an act, sow an act, repeat a habit; sow a habit, reap a character; sow a character, reap a destiny.” It is evident that our thoughts are determining our immediate and ultimate destiny. The pure, the upright, the noble, the courageous and the Christ-like are not that way by chance. They are like they are because they think as God would have them think.
