Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is-his good, pleasing and perfect will.
You do not have to think about just any thought that happens to come to your mind. You can choose to think things on purpose! I have to admit Satan really attacks me in this area especially when it comes to trust. We have all had hurts in our past and for me Satan likes to throw doubt and frustrating thoughts my way to discourage and frustrate me. And you know what? The only reason he is able to do that is because I allow it! We have a choice and I am choosing to STOP!
No more will I just run with thoughts about situations that don’t even exist until I am all in a tizzy worrying and fretting over things that most of the time don’t even exist.
Ladies we need to take our thoughts captive and choose to think on some of the things the Bible tells us to think about. Whatever is good and pure and holy; think on these things, not whatever might happen or hurt us or maybe whatever the latest gossip is. Choose to take time out of your day to focus on God and what He would choose for you to think on!
What we think is very important to God. It is the hidden man of the heart that is important to God. When we grow in our walk with God to the point where we are willing to take responsibility for our inner life, our thoughts, attitudes and self talk then God can work in our lives where we struggle the most. What are you saying to yourself because what you are saying to your self affects you and your relationships.
Sometimes I have to just tell myself to stop. Refuse to let your mind be a garbage dump for the devil! You cannot allow your mind to just run with thoughts that are destroying your life! Take control of your thoughts today – it is a choice.
