Then all the Messiah’s communities will know that I am the one who searches minds and hearts, and I will give to each of you according to your deeds. (TLV)
What we do, not think, brings a divine response whether it be judgment or blessing. God pays much closer attention to and reacts to our actions rather than our thoughts. Thinking about stealing a car is not a criminal act requiring prison time. Therefore, remember, that though we may stumble in our thought life, as long as we do the right thing before God or abstain from doing the wrong thing, we are in position to receive His blessing and favor.
