You have a VERY powerful mind!!
Yes, princess, you do!
Your mind not only has an incredible ability to generate and process thoughts, but it’s power reaches into your very soul. In fact, it is part of your soul!
Think about that!
Yes, it’s true that your thoughts become your words. Your words become your actions. Your actions form your habits. And your habits determine your destiny. Yet the ramifications of your thoughts reach even deeper than even that! They reach into your soul, so that if you have “poisonous thinking you will not be able to detect the leading of Gods Spirit” (Priscilla Shirer, in her amazing Bible study ‘The Armor of God’)
That’s why it is SOOOOO important that we take every thought captive! (2 Corinthians 10:5)
And that’s why I’m writing this.
Because I need to rewire my thinking.
And writing this helps me to do that.
Because I need to remember that:
I am chosen.
I am wanted.
I am redeemed.
I am born of God and the evil one cannot touch me. (1 John 5:18)
I may approach God with boldness, freedom, and confidence. (Ephesians 3:12)
I am assured that all things will work together for the good. (Romans 8:28)
I am the sweet fragrance of Christ. (2 Corinthians 2:15)
I am a citizen of heaven. (Philippians 3:20)
I am Christ’s friend. (John 15:15)
I cannot be separated from the love of God. (Romans 8:35)
Note: This is a partial list that Priscilla Shirer put together in her Bible study called ‘The Armor of God.’
That is who I am.
Now I have to start thinking like that’s true.
And then I’ll start living like that’s true!
Knowing the truth about who you are in Christ will surely give you a whole lotta hope! I, for one, certainly wouldn’t mind adding a little bit of hope into my day!
It all starts with changing the way you think.
It all starts now.
Let’s start adding a little bit of hope into our lives!
What do you think, princess? Are you ready?
