Be careful what you think!! Most of us do not think about what we are thinking about. We just let our minds idol on anything. if we don’t think about what we are thinking about Satan will inject his thoughts into our minds (idol mind is the devil’s workshop).
Most of the time, we spend time thinking about things not worth thinking about. Think about what you are thinking about! Is it really worth your time thinking about it?
Some of us spend so much time thinking all the wrong things. Some of us are addicted to wrong thinking. We get up in the morning thinking wrong thoughts; we go all day thinking wrong thoughts; we go to bed at night still thinking wrong thoughts. And wonder why we are so miserable.
LEARN HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT THOUGHTS! YOU MUST SAY: “I choose NOT to think that. I choose not to allow that thought to fester in my mind. It is shocking how many believers are pulled down simply because of the thoughts they allow to fester in their minds. You can have victory simply through changing the way you think, and by controlling the thoughts that flow through your mind.
You need to stop sometime and think about what you are thinking about. Watch what you think about during your every waking hour. You have authority over your thoughts. You must choose what you think about. The Bible says, “If it is not true, noble, just, pure, lovely, of a good report, if it is not virturous, or praiseworthy, do not even think about them.
The reason for pure thoughts is to get Satan out of your mind. There is a proverbial saying, “You can’t stop a bird from flying over your head, but you can stop him from making a nest in your hair.” By the same token, you can control your thoughts! You can’t stop them from coming into your mind, but you can stop them from staying there.
We are told to, “Set our minds on things above, not on things of the earth.” In other words, think Godly thoughts. Instead of exercising our minds on negative things and worrying over things we can’t do anything about.
Instead of thinking about the problems in our lives, let us think about the solutions. Get the solution you want in your mind and hold that thought; make it your dominate thought.
Let me ask you something? If you would take inventory of the thoughts you’ve been thinking the past week, what kind of thoughts were they? Were they negative? Were they focused on your problems? Or, were they positive?
How much time have you spent over the past week thinking about the goodness of God? How He is your healer, your deliver, your provider, etc. Or, were they problem focused thoughts?
You need to be careful how you think about people. That person that you are holding an evil or negative thought against is a bondage, it’s a stronghold that Satan has you in and it is blocking your blessing. Not only that, that person is controlling you, your happiness because you are constantly thinking about that person – morning noon and night. I want you to know that, the thoughts and feelings you send out to this person are going through you. And what goes through you returns to you.
You cannot hold negative thoughts against someone and expect God to bless you. That negative thought is more harmful to you than the person. Think about what you are thinking about!! – God bless
