The Power of Thinking Right

Scripture tells us that as we think, so are we (Proverbs 23:7 TLB). This is a very powerful truth because it means that our thinking controls who we are and who we become. 

In Romans 12:2, Jesus commands us to be transformed by renewing our minds. He goes on to explain what will happen once we renew our minds. We will experience the good and acceptable and perfect will of God for our lives. 

These are amazing truths! God is telling us that if we want to experience His perfect will for our lives, we need to change our thinking from the world’s way of thinking to His way of thinking. 

Well, how does God think? To know how God thinks, we must study His Word because in His Word He tells us how He thinks and how He acts. Once we know, we simply imitate Him. 

If your life is not bearing the fruit you want, check your thoughts. Remember: You are governed by your thoughts. So be sure your thoughts agree with God’s thoughts.

  1. Yes, Mary Ann, this is SO important. A positive attitude is healthy, as well as pleasing to God. Of course, His thoughts are higher than our thoughts, but there is plenty in the Bible for us to show us what is pleasing to Him.

    Thinking positive also helps me wait after sending in a proposal or query letter. The writing world is a s-l-o-w world and we need to keep our hopes up and keep working while we wait.

    • Pam, you are so right about ours being a “slow” business. But every once in a while, there is a “suddenly”. I pray a “suddenly” upon you, for you have indeed been faithful.

  2. Hi MaryAnn –

    I was reading the last chapter of Isaiah this morning. God was not a happy camper (no disrespect intended).

    His people were doing all the religious stuff, but their lives didn’t line up with His Word. He compared their so-called acts of worship with things He considered an abomination.

    He really got His point across. If we want to know what He thinks, His Word will give it to us right between the eyes.

    Blessings,
    Susan
