In my short journey with the Lord I’ve been made aware of a few things. I want to share with you today one of those things. It is this, what ever you think about yourself, you will project. The Bible says it like this:
Psalm 23:7a NKJV| “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.”
There are many ways in which your thoughts of yourself are formed:
First there is the way your mind in wired through genetics/birth.
Your parents and family also have a lot to do with shaping how you think of yourself.
Then throughout your life the world around you is filling you with information of who you are and assist in the formation of your thoughts as well.
Some of these thoughts are not always bad. But in many cases people seem to gravitate towards the negative. For some reason it’s easier to believe you are dumb than smart. This is not a problem for everyone, but I think many deal with this issue. I personally did for most of my life.
These thoughts will just begin to bombard you. Their purpose is to sabotage your future, set you back, make you give up, or get you to not even try to begin with. They paralyze you with fear and uncertainty. They are demonic and God is delivering you today!
Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV| “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You see, those negative thoughts need to be replaced with the thoughts of the Lord.
His thoughts of you are good, peaceful and give you hope. Thoughts coming from other sources will leave you tormented, frustrated and hopeless. They must end today!
Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT| “My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.”
Today, ask the Holy Spirit Himself to flood and purge your mind with the thoughts of the Father. So you can begin to think His thoughts and project the life that He has for you. Your future is bright and full of hope. He has something planned for you far beyond anything you can imagine. Blissful, be encouraged and Rule Your Day!
