Experts estimate that the number of thoughts that run through our heads a day are between 50,000 to 80,000. That’s incredible!
We do know that our thoughts shape and reinforce our attitudes and mindsets. Our ‘headspace’ impacts our choices, verbal expression and actions. In order for any kind of change to take place, there has to be a mind shift.
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. (Romans 12:2)
We have the authority as believers to take charge of our thoughts, attitudes and mindsets.
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; (2 Corinthians 10:5)
Negative thoughts that are infested with jealousy, hatred, bitterness, pride, low self worth and anything else that is contrary to God’s purpose must be addressed. Learn to sift every such thought through the sieve of Scripture. Process each thought, not with your own wisdom but with God’s. Allow the Holy Spirit to transform your mind, thought by thought. Fight your thoughts with Scripture and walk with God throughout the journey. He promised to be with us every step of the way.
More scripture to encourage you:
and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matt 28:20)
“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.”(Joshua 1:8)
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.” (Phillipians 4:8)
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
