The power of godly thinking

From the March 2023 issue of The Christian Science Journal

“How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand” (Psalms 139:17, 18, New International Version).

Knowing that God, divine Mind, is forever communicating to us and that God’s thoughts are revelatory and unstoppable is truly liberating. Our listening to and expressing of these impartations from infinite Mind shape our lives—including our health, careers, relationships, contributions to the world, self-knowledge, and vision for mankind. Giving heed to God’s thoughts determines how we conduct ourselves, speak, worship, relate, learn, grow, and more.

On the other hand, any thought that brings untoward effects, such as confusion, fear, or hatred, is not from the divine Mind. Jesus, the master Christian, spoke of such thinking as originating from “the devil,” whom he characterized as “a liar, and the father of it” (John 8:44). But we can rejoice in the spiritual fact that ungodly, devilish thoughts have no reality or power, since their origin is not of God, who is the one and only cause. Since God’s thoughts alone are good and real, we need to align our thinking with infinite, intelligent Mind.
