Proverbs 23:7 says that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he."
As your thinking goes, so goes your entire being.
I used to think I was worthless, of no value, inadequate, inferior and full of shame. I was so ashamed of myself that I felt I would have to struggle all my life. I did not think I would do well at sports, in attracting the opposite sex, in business or in any other way. All my thinking was negative.
Then, at the age of 35, married with 3 children and a good job, I discovered, by God's grace and mercy, I was valuable. So valuable, in fact, that His Son died in my place.
My whole life changed. I began to think positively. I saw myself as a child of God, made in His image, royalty, worthy, valuable and with a purpose and destiny.
I had accepted satan's negative lies and agreed with him too long. Now I began to see myself as God sees me.
Did it happen overnight? NO! But I began a process that is still happening today. Through the power of the Holy Spirit I am able to grow and my life's purpose is to help you grow as well.
Take every thought captive. If it is negative, it is a lie of satan and you have the authority to refuse. If it is positive, I believe, it comes from God. After all, Jesus only had positive character qualities in Him. Since I am made in His image I only have positive character qualities.
Blessings for a Godly thought life!
