Think on These Things!
Think on These Things!By
Your most dominant thoughts will determine what you will acquire most out of life. Too often, we go around allowing negative thinking to cloud our mind. For many, the glass is half empty when it should be half full.
But if you make a decision to change the way you think, you will surely see a change in life. In fact, I would go as far as to say that the way we think is tied to our faith. In other words, If you think that you’ll never rise to a new level in life, then that’s the level you’ll achieve. If you think that you’ll never be made whole, then you’re limiting God’s healing power on your life. If you think you don’t have the talents, abilities or the skills then you will never fulfill what Philippians 4:13 says about you- that you can do all things through Christ which strengthens you.
Proverbs 23:7 says, “So as a man thinketh, so is he.” If you think about things that are mediocre, or things that are not admirable, or things that aren’t worthy of praise, then you’re setting a low ceiling for your level of faith.
But I dare you to do what the Apostle Paul declares in Philippians 4:8, “whatever is true, noble, right, pure, whatever is lovely, admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things.” This is a guideline of how we should think.
Notice the scripture doesn’t say whatever is deceiving, lacking virtue, detestable, evil, whatever is full of doubt, whatever is depressing, or whatever is worth bashing, think on those things. No, it declares that anything that you know to be true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and praiseworthy are the things you should think about.
Think about things in which you are thankful. Think about things that give you joy. Meditate on the truth of what God says about you. Delight yourself in the ways of God the creator. Think on these things and watch as a change takes place as you charge forth on your journey of life!
