Where Do You Want To End Up Today?
“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
– John 8:31-32 (NIV)
The devil is ever so crafty in communicating negative messages. He will do everything in his power to keep us from getting on the right train of thought. He’ll bombard our thoughts because he knows that most people don’t even think about what they are thinking about. He knows they will believe any lie he tells, that they will think any thought that comes to their minds.
So we have to be committed to know, to learn, and to retrain our thinking. We have to work at believing God’s voice spoken through His Word and His prophets, more than all the other voices that have spoken into our lives — including our own.
Ask yourself Where do I want to end up today? and then set your course going in the right direction.
Take God’s thoughts and replace yours with His.
This is the process of renewing your mind — of becoming someone who thinks, and consequently, lives differently than you do now.
Start every morning filling your mind with the Word of God. We need to remind ourselves of what God says about us and every circumstance in life.
When armed with the truth of His Word, we are able to contend with the onslaught of fear, doubt, insecurity, negativity, and lies that the enemy hurls at us daily.
If this sounds like a lot of work, consider it this way:
If you needed kidney dialysis every day to stay alive, you would do it, right?
If you needed a pill every day to keep you alive, you would take it.
I urge you to consider it that important to study the Word. The Word will keep you on track and help you to flourish in life.
We have to think God’s truth and say it daily — because it is only the truth we know that sets us free.
God is serious about getting His Word to us. We just need to be willing to apply it and reprogram our minds and invariably our lives.
In Jesus Name I declare I take my thoughts captive in obedience to the word of God. I pull down all the lies and stronghold of Satan in my thinking. I destroy every work of Satan in my life, family, ministry, community, and nation by the blood of Jesus. I am free, I am delivered from every negative bondages now and forevermore. In Jesus Name. Amen.
