Your mind is constantly thinking. Most of the time, it is not thinking about what to eat for dinner, or where you will go on vacation. the thoughts in our mind almost always are focused on evaluations. We evaluate what we said, what THEY said, what we are wearing when we look in the mirror, what THEY are wearing and wondering if they even LOOKED in the mirror. Our minds want to control our situations and our environment.
And…by and large, our thoughts are inaccurate and judgmental of ourselves and others.
Sometimes we remember (think of past things) and think on the things someone said about us. I had a teacher once tell me I was stupid. I believed her, and for the next 20 years of my life, I had to fight against those words. The old saying goes, “You have to think about what you are thinking about!” because thoughts can set you on a course throughout your day that are not at all in line with reality.
Here is the truth. You are not your thoughts. You are not the things you are thinking. The mind is one of the most fertile fields for growing our lives. If thoughts of negativity are dwelt upon, it is like watering a weed. It grows and spawns other weeds and before you know it, your mind is filled with weeds! But, when we stop living according to the dictates of our negative minds, and begin confessing what God says we are, remarkable things begin to happen.
Today, go out believing what God says about you. You are wonderfully and awesomely made. You are the head and not the tail. If God be for you, who can be against you? God makes all things work together for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purposes.
When we believe right things, we find the course of our days going in a right direction. Speak what God says about you out loud. Truth dispels darkness, and puts corrective lenses on a mind that wants to think negatively.
