What are you thinking about every day? Have you thought about what you think about lately?
I had to train myself with my thoughts. It’s crazy how easy it is to let your mind wander
to thoughts of defeat and hopelessness.
Just last week I was wrestling with thoughts of inadequacy. Someone said something to me and I
had to catch myself in the moment. I was not about to accept the words that were spoken to me.
I was not about to let that word take root in me.
You need to know the enemy is not taking a back seat when it comes to
your thoughts. He is trying to get you to think a certain way, in a way that is destructive. He is not waiting
for you to think negatively. He is being proactive in affecting the way you think.
So must we take a back seat then when it comes to our thoughts? No!
We need to be vigilant and proactive.
There are so many opportunities to think negatively these days. We need to be vigilant when it comes
to guarding our minds. Let’s look at what the word says,
“For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly,
whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and
gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh
and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].
Let’s take this word to heart. This is our offensive attack against what the enemy is trying to do.
If we are going to protect ourselves against the world’s infiltration we need to be proactive about what we
think about. Like I said before, there is so much opportunity to think negatively about our lives and
everything going on around us. Let’s be deliberate about our thoughts. Have a plan!
ACT ON IT: Right down ten things (using the Philippians 4 model) that you can think about on a daily basis.
What do you think about when you think about your life?
Write down three things you feel YAH has spoken to you about concerning your life.
Bless you friends
Reblogged this on A Thousand Shades of Awesomeness and commented:
As a man thinks in heart, so he is, just the other day, I was having with my teenage son about the concept of thinking.
The power of our thoughts is so underated I feel. It’s great to hear you teaching your son about his thoughts. The more we take control of our thoughts the harder it is for the enemy to infiltrate.
Thank you for sharing!
Thank you more.
