When Jesus said in Luke 21, “Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate what ye shall answer,” He meant that if you meditate extensively on the Word of God then He will give you “a mouth and wisdom” to answer out of what you have been taught. When you face problems or trials in the details of life, you won’t have to meditate on how you should answer.
What is lacking in Christianity today is an understanding of the value of a single thought and the value of every succeeding thought. We can never underestimate the value of a choice that leads to a series of right choices. It is imperative that we learn the value of godly communication that has its origin in godly thoughts and godly choices.
Every godly action has great value because it flows from the springs of right thoughts (Philippians 4:8). Right thoughts, right choices, godly communication, and godly actions stem from our responses to God’s provision for us to think.
