Do you know that you live in a world that’s created by your own thoughts? Your thoughts play a huge part in where life takes you. Proverbs 23:7a, For as he thinks within himself, so he is.
Our imagination plays a very large part in making pathways to success or failure. Ever hear the saying, ‘The mind is the devils playground?’ With his help, you can pretty much stir up the worst scenario’s in seconds. If you don’t believe me, watch some of the ‘Tell-a-vision’ shows out there that are corrupting the minds of people, causing them to do unimaginable things. The more you think on something, the greater the possibilities of it happening.
In Genesis 11, we read about a people who got together and decided to build a tower to the sky. Most of us know it as the ‘Tower of Babel’ because it was where God confused the language so they could no longer communicate there thoughts to one another. Look at verse 6 in the Amplified version; And the Lord said, “Behold, they are one [unified] people, and they all have the same language. This is only the beginning of what they will do [in rebellion against Me], and now no evil thing they imagine they can do will be impossible for them.”
If you’re tired of what’s happening in your life, perhaps you need to take a second look at your thought life, because it starts there. Those who think right, live right, those who don’t, won’t. Train your brain to reign! Think about it, you’re a joint heir with Christ. A child of Almighty God. Start by thinking on THAT and see how life changes.
In conclusion, my friends, fill your minds with those things that are good and that deserve praise: things that are true, noble, right, pure, lovely, and honorable. Put into practice what you learned and received from me, both from my words and from my actions. And the God who gives us peace will be with you. Philippians 4:8-9
Father, I will choose my thoughts wisely today, thinking on where I am seated, in heavenly places with Christ Jesus. I will remember that You have great plans for me, my steps are ordered every day. Trusting You for each time I place my foot that it leads me to the successful place You’ve chosen for me. I’m so excited for this day! I surrender my thoughts and exchange them for Yours. I’m excited to know that You’re always working to take me to the place where I can be the best for Your Kingdom. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
