Their eye bulges from fatness; The imaginations of their heart run riot. Psalm 73:7
Has your life become nothing but drama? Do you allow your thoughts to run away on you? Meaning, when you hear something, you do the ‘what if’s’? Which then rolls down the mountain, picking up speed and debris, throwing things off that cause damage to yourself and others?
If your imagination runs wild, it’s time to reign it in. Proverbs 23:7a says that as a man thinks, so is he. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to be the mess my mind conjures up. I don’t want my crazy imagination to dictate my outcomes. If I am what I think, I need to work at changing my thinking.
The things I think on become the foundation for my future. Some of us need to tear down our houses and build again, but this time, build on a solid Rock and a sure foundation. I’ve been working on this for awhile now. I’ve been asking myself questions like, “Where did that thought come from? Is it based on truth or lies?”
Here’s my challenge for you today; Check the origins of your thoughts. Where are they coming from? Truth is found in the Word of God, it is a sure foundation. If what I think does not line up with His Word, I need to get rid of it and speak the truth until my mind changes what it’s believing. Don’t allow things you hear, no matter how good it sounds, become truth until you take it before the Lord and talk with Him about it. He will always lead you into all truth. Just become everyone is saying it, doesn’t make it right.
“On Christ the Solid Rock I stand, all other ground is sinking sand. All other ground is sinking sand.”
Remember, no one controls your thoughts but you. If you think it, you become it. Stop the madness and think on things that are pure, honorable, praise worthy and good reports. Every mind can be reprogrammed! Ask God to give you insight into His Word and His will for you and begin thinking on these things.
