I’m thoroughly convinced that life’s greatest BATTLES are won or lost in the space BETWEEN our ears?
Our THOUGHTS (right or wrong) become our actions, and our ACTIONS determine our lives.
The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he…”
One translation states, “As a man thinks in his heart, so does he BECOME.”
WHAT are we thinking …and WHO are we becoming?
Each and every day, the enemy will try to offer us negative thoughts that HARASS what God is trying to do in our mind.
I think we should REJECT his offer, and recognize that those pessimistic thoughts are NOT our own.
If we constantly ALLOW depressing thoughts to linger, we can look forward to living a depressing, MISERABLE life.
Instead, we’re able to take CAPTIVE every negative thought to the obedience of Christ.
The mind is the leader of all of our actions, and our actions will dictate the DIRECTION of our lives.
Practice taking control of destructive thoughts, turning toward a POSITIVE mindset and then proceeding in that direction.
“…Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
The Good Fight
I know it’s a daily battle, but I want to encourage you to never give up the FIGHT!
Audibly declare this with me.
“I am BLESSED to be a blessing!”
“People look at me and LIKE me!”
“I think GOOD thoughts, and I will live a GOOD life!”
