Hey Family! Welcome back!
Today I am just going to give you a word of encouragement that you can change the way that you are thinking! So if you’re interested in hearing more please keep reading:
I came across this quote by Joyce Meyer saying “Usually Satan deceives people to thinking that the source of their misery our trouble is something other than what it really is he wants them to think they’re unhappy due
to what is going on around them there are circumstances but the misery is actually due to what is going on inside them their thoughts” and I thought to myself how true is this statement so I want to encourage you today to not focus on the negative but instead focus on the positive. View the cup is half full not half empty.
We cannot allow ourselves to sit for hours every day thinking about things that are not true we spend so much time thinking on the negative things that could never happen! So let’s read this scripture, I believe that this will help us a lot:
Philippians 4:8 Finally brethren whatever is true whatever is honorable whatever is right whatever is pure whatever is lovely whatever is of good repute if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise dwell on these things so these are the things.
These are the things that we should be thinking on when we’re sitting down meditating we should not be taking on anything else this verse does not include anything NEGATIVE. I encourage you to plead the blood of Jesus over your mind and to read:
2 Corinthians chapter 10 verse number five says we are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
We want to think on the things that Christ wants us to think on and we must be sure that we are guarding our hearts and our minds.
One of my favorite things that normally help me to just cast down every other thing is the first part of that verse it says whatsoever things are true. That means whatsoever things are real if it’s not really happening don’t think on it. We know according to the Word of God that we keep our minds stayed on him he will keep us in perfect peace so you won’t be struggling with worry, fear and doubt because you will be in perfect peace because you are thinking on the things of the Lord.
Mediate on these things!!
