Beloved, I know even better than you the contents of your thoughts. Your mind is a spiritual battlefield. That's why I urge you to stay alert! When you spend time listening to Me, you need to begin with prayer for protection. The evil one is the father of lies: his deceptions can worm their way into your mind if you let down your guard. When you ask for protection, always pray in My Name, because I defeated the devil utterly on the cross!
I'm pleased that you desire to think My thoughts. Having prayed for protection, you should also ask the Holy Spirit to help you listen well. He is the Director of this listening adventure. Remain alert while you listen, ready to reject anything inconsistent with biblical truth.
As My thoughts gradually form in your mind, you may find it helpful to write them down. Thank Me for that you have received and continue to see the help of My Spirit. Don't become overly focused on writing. The process - listening to Me under the direction of My Spirit is more precious than the product: What you write. As you spend time focusing on Me, you will grow not only closer to Me but also more like Me.
