As much as you can do with your words, sometimes your thoughts are able to provoke the same degree of response.
So when Paul says in Ephesians 3:20 that ‘God is able to do exceedingly abundantly,’ he offers two situations in which this is true
1. above all we can ask
2. above all we can think
Your thoughts are actually very loud prayers. Yes- to God they are as loud as your words.
Joseph never spoke a word, rather as he pondered on the things in his mind, there was an angelic visitation.
Matthew 1:20 But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
And lest we confuse two things: Joseph pondered on those matters, he was worrying about them.
In Proverbs 23:7 we read ‘as a man thinks in his heart, so is he’. That is why beyond speaking yourself into situations, you can also very easily think yourself into them: into depression, fear, worry, even diseases. Therefore, create a filter for your thoughts because knowing that they could do the same thing as your words, would you still think them?
