Thoughts are important because we start to believe from our thoughts, and from our beliefs, we act in either faith or fear and doubt.
This is why God encourages us to check up on our thinking and to “not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of our mind. Then we will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2)
God wants us to be free from fear and doubt and full of faith and power, living an extraordinary life. However, to be transformed in our thoughts means we can’t copy this world’s behaviour and customs any longer. Instead, we allow God to transform us into a new person by receiving His love and forgiveness. Then we choose to listen to Him every day, read His words, believe what He says, and act upon it.
“For as you know him better, he will give you, through his great power, everything you need for living a truly good life: he even shares his own glory and his own goodness with us!” (2 Peter 1:3 NLT)
Today keep a check on your thoughts and catch any wayward ones that try to lead you off on a track of fear, loss, failure, and away from what God says is best for you. Those thoughts are not God’s thoughts towards you, and if you take time to read and think upon His words in the bible and the good things He has done, you will soon discover that thinking about what He says and who He is will transform your thoughts and life.
Today think right, believe right, and you’ll find yourself acting right and living the life you dreamed of. (Ephesians 3:20)
Prayer: Lord, please help me be more aware of the hundreds of random thoughts that pass through my mind so that I can catch the ones that aren’t healthy and throw them away and ponder upon the good ones and choose to act on those. I’m choosing today to think upon your Word, believe what you say, and act accordingly. In Jesus name Amen.
