Good morning dear ones!👋🏻
Isaiah 55:8-9 says,
- “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.”
If you THINK like the world THINKS, you will eventually ACT like the world ACTS! If your THOUGHTS are unrestrained, your actions will be too!
You may ask, “So, Lisa, how do I THINK LIKE GOD THINKS?” By bringing your THOUGHTS into obedience to the Scripture. As a matter of fact, 2 Corinthians 10:5 says,
- 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…
See, your mind or THOUGHTS are the starting point in operating in the Kingdom of God. Proverbs 23:7 says,
- As a man THINKS in his heart, so is he.
If you do not like what is being manifested in your life, consider what you have been thinking about. We are what we THINK!
When we make the decision to consider the Word of God first and foremost, we must understand that it will require focus. It will also require a commitment to keep our attention on God’s promises despite what we see or feel. The enemy will try to distract us and cause our minds to focus more on the problems. However, when we focus more on our problems than we do on the answers (from the Word), fear, doubt, and unbelief will take over our minds. As a result, we will remain where we are. What we need to do is take authority over negative THOUGHTS and cast them down by faith.
It does not matter what the problem is ~ the solution is found in the Word.
When we are steadfast in remaining focused on God’s Word, we will begin to experience supernatural peace that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:6-7).
It is time for us to believe God’s Word, stay focused on it, and see the manifestations of His promises. God wants us to live in an abundance of peace where nothing is missing, lacking, or broken in our lives. However, it all begins with our THINKING. Isn’t it time for a real change in your life? Why not start today?
“Father, we know that our THOUGHTS are not Your THOUGHTS, so that is why You tell us not to be comformed to this world, by THINKING like the world, but to be transformed by the RENEWING OF OUR MINDS to YOURTHOUGHTS. We have an entire BIBLE that teaches us Who You are, who we are IN CHRIST JESUS, and what you have for those who will attend to Your Word. You promise us LIFE AND HEALTH. We make a quality decision to incline our ears to Your sayings, to not let them depart from before our eyes and to keep them in the midst of our hearts. We praise and thank You for YOUR WORD, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Puposing to think like God thinks,
