“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 NLT
Years ago, Joyce Meyer wrote a very good book called “Battlefield of the Mind”. In my own journey with God, it has helped me to gain victory in the way that I think and ultimately, how I understand life. The results of a transformed mind are astounding!
(I recommend this book to those who may be struggling with thought patterns that do more damage than good. If you, or some one you know is ready for change, this book can help you.)
God desires that you live the abundant, power-packed, love saturated, grace covered life in Christ Jesus. Unfortunately, many of us are living way below this reality.
Opportunities are passed on because of how we think about ourselves.
Relationships are sabotaged because of how we think about men/women.
We jeopardize our increase, because of how we think about wealth.
We live anxious, fearful lives because of how we think about our relationship with God.
In many cases, our thoughts cause a war on the inside and we don’t even realize that we fight against our own destinies.
But, no more! We must make room for all that God has promised to us – and guess what? It all starts on the inside. As we change the way we think things will begin to turn around for us externally.
You have the key to your destiny. It’s all on the inside.
This is the most important aspect of reinventing ourselves into who we know we can become. I know that it’s not easy, nothing that is of value comes easily. But, don’t give up.Transformation is a process. But, you are worth it! And, God is with you!
Don’t be afraid to confront your thoughts. And, if you need help, please get it. Read a book, write in a journal, talk to a friend, visit a counsellor, join a support group. Just do it.
There is no time like the present to start to invest in you. You will not be disappointed!
