PULSE 23/5/18 – The Power of Your Thoughts

“For as he thinks in his heart, so he is…” 

Proverbs 23:7

This one Scripture alone lets us know how very important it is that we think properly. Thoughts are powerful, and according to the writer of the book of Proverbs, they have creative ability. If our thoughts are gong to affect what we become, then it should certainly be a priority that we think right thoughts.

It is an absolute necessity that we get our thinking in line with God’s word!

You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind.

“Those who live according to the flesh have their minds set on what the flesh desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires.” Romans 8:5

If we think fleshly thoughts, wrong thoughts, negative thoughts, we cannot walk in the Spirit. Renewed, God-like thinking is a vital necessity to a successful Christian life. 

Be serious about tearing down the strongholds Satan has built in your mind. 

“If you grow a healthy tree, you’ll pick healthy fruit. If you grow a diseased tree, you’ll pick worm-eaten fruit. The fruit tells you about the tree.” Matthew 12:33

The Bible says that a tree is known by its fruit.  The same is true in our lives. Thoughts bear fruit. Think good thoughts, and the fruit in your life will be good. Think bad thoughts, and the fruit in your life will be bad. 

“Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live!” Deuteronomy 30:19

The choice is yours! Choose life or death.  We have to purposefully choose right thinking. Thinking that is based on what the Word of God says.
