2 Corinthians 10:4-5 (AMPC) 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds, 5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),
Don’t let your thinking steal your life. The devil uses our thoughts to keep us from progressing. How much do you think about what you are thinking about? What do you do when you are feeling down? The way we feel is effected by our thinking. Our thinking impacts every decision we make as well as our behavior. It is time to start thinking about the way we think. Just because we feel lousy it doesn’t mean we will have a lousy day.
Changing our thinking takes a bit of time. The first step to changing our thinking is recognizing that our thinking needs to change. Next start to pay attention to how our thinking is impacting our lives – be it in a positive way or a negative way. If your mind is filled with bad thoughts how can you change it? It helps to replace those bad thoughts with good thoughts. Let the good chase the evil out of your mind.
What we believe is our reality. If we constantly think negative thoughts about ourselves then we start to believe those negative things. We will start to see positive changes in our lives when we begin to learn to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts. It is possible that we blame others and things for our negative attitude and never take responsibility for the thoughts. Our thoughts are not anyone’s fault. Our circumstances may not change, but our thoughts can.
God wants us to be happy and full of joy – to the point that it overflows.
John 10:10 (AMPC) 10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it [a]overflows).
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
