"As a man thinks in his heart, so is he." Proverbs 23:7
The root system of your life and mine is our thoughts. The average person thinks at least 13,000 thoughts a day. Though we can't help every thought that crosses our minds, one's destiny is not directed by a single thought, it is directed by repeated thoughts. You can transform your life by choosing to think in line with God's Word. His Words are His thoughts. ][pp
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect” (Romans 12:2).
How do you transform your thinking and thereby transform your life?
1. Daily read and meditate on God's Word. The book of Psalms is a good starting place for reading and meditation.
2. Resist negative, defeated thoughts and live free. Instead find a passage of truth in God's Word to meditate. Jesus said, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32)
3. Speak God's Word over your life. You don't overcome negative thoughts with positive thoughts. You overcome negative thoughts by speaking God's Word. This is the key to transformation.
Words change your thinking,
which changes your emotions,
which changes your choices,
which changes your habits,
which changes your character,
which changes your destiny.
