When you wake up in the morning, promise to yourself that you would smile to spread warmth like the rays of sun, you would drench everyone with happiness like the rain, and you will fly away with all the worries in the world like the breeze. Let the nature pave your path and may you always be happy!
Second 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.” God isn’t going to defend your mind for you; it’s your responsibility. With the Word of God in your mouth and in your heart, you can defeat the enemy’s suggestions every time.
Regardless of whether your old issues are completely resolved, once you decide to go in a new direction, you have taken the first step toward change. Make a consistent effort to keep wrong thoughts of your past out of your mind. Learn from your mistakes and press forward. Get rid of “stinking thinking” and fill your mind with the truth of the Word by studying and meditating on the Scriptures daily.
Wrong thoughts don’t have to rule your life. Guard your mind by being careful about what you look at, listen to and talk about with others. God has given you authority over every aspect of your life, including your own mind! Fight bad thoughts with God’s Word.
Every day you will have the opportunity to go back to old ways of thinking. From your interactions with others, to personal decisions, you will have to choose God’s thoughts over your own. You can do it! You’re not alone on your road to change; the Spirit of God and His Word are there to help you. Decide today to turn away from anything that doesn’t line up with His Word.
