(Choose The Right Thoughts For The Right Life)
TO THE BIBLE: Proverbs 23:7
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. “Eat and drink!” he says to you, but his heart is not with you.”
Thoughts are more than mere imaginations; they are mental pictures of the mind with constructive or destructive capabilities. Thoughts, many times, are your own creation—they are the mental constructions of your mind that are based on your imaginations. They have the power to keep you in bondage or liberate you to be the best of you. That’s why until a person’s way of thinking changes, his life and the circumstances of his existence will not change. Even God can’t do anything for that man. Your life goes in the direction of your thinking, for you’re the character of your thoughts. That’s how powerful our thoughts are!
You have the ability to choose what you should think about and reject what you shouldn’t. This might sound like a mystery to some people, because their minds run riot all the time! But the Bible says “…whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things” (Philippians 4:8 NIV). That suggests you can direct your mind to think the right thoughts only! You can control your thoughts.
The Bible says to mount a fort over your heart (Proverbs 4:23); don’t allow just any thought come in. It doesn’t matter what unpleasant situation you find yourself in, you can either decide to remain there or come out of it by imbibing the right thinking! Reject thoughts that tend to demean or depress you; accept the thoughts of success, joy, victory, and prosperity that are based on God’s Word.
Proverbs 4:23; Proverbs 21:5; Philippians 4:8
God’s Word is in my heart and in my mouth, and as I think and meditate on it today, my circumstances align with the will and purpose of God for me! I attract only thoughts that are consistent with my destiny in Christ—thoughts of victory, increase, success, health and strength—in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
