Disciple Disciplines 3 – Thoughts of Encouragement

Disciple Disciplines 3 – Thoughts of Encouragement
WATERS: The Word Abides in our Thoughts of Encouragement, Readiness and Submission. Disciplines are something we walk in daily, to find our destiny 
1.THOUGHT life is controlled and given to God
1.1.Focust on the positive:
1.1.1.Phil 4:8 Whatever things are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; any virtue, any praise, think on these things.
1.2.The Thought life is spiritual warfare: Cor 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: 4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) 5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 
2.ENCOURAGE the brothers every time you see them
2.1.The world tears down, we build up!
2.1.1.Eph 4:29 Speak edification…so that it will give grace to those who hear.
3.FINAL THOUGHT: Edifying others takes genuine thought. Pray that you will understand how to praise others!
