…But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.
— 1 Corinthians 2:16 (AMPC)
One of my favorite things to say is, “Where the mind goes, the man follows,” because the way you think determines the way you live.
If you think you’re going to be defeated, then you’re going to have an attitude that leads to defeat. But if you choose to think about God’s promises, you’re going to have a faith-filled, expectant attitude.
Yesterday, you may have let your mind focus on the negative— what you can’t do, how badly you’ve messed up, all the things that could go wrong—but today you can submit your mind to the Word of God. You can actually choose the thoughts you are going to dwell on.
With the help of the Holy Spirit, you can change your thoughts today. You can choose a better, more positive, more fulfilling life.
Prayer Starter: Thank You, Father, for helping me think positive thoughts. I am grateful that I am not a prisoner to negative thinking and that I can choose happy, and joy-filled thoughts, which will lead to a more fulfilling life, amen.
