The Power of Your Thoughts – Beloved Women – August 9, 2022
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing, you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” – Romans 12:2 ESV
Your thoughts have great impact on the course of your life and the Bible has much to say on the topic.
If we want peace, Philippians 4:8 tells us to think on what is “true, honorable, just, pure, lovely, commendable, excellent and anything worthy of praise.” (ESV)
If we want to be transformed into the women God is calling us to be, Romans 12:2 tells us this only happens by the renewing of our minds.
If we want to combat the lies from the enemy that contradict the truth of God, 2 Corinthians 10:5 tells us we are to take every thought that we have and make it obedient to Christ.
Your mind is a battlefield and I personally know it’s a difficult fight. The enemy wants to attack your mind, he wants you to think you're crazy, but God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7) Due to God's love for us, we have the power to control our thoughts, and not the other way around.
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask for a mind that glorifies you. I pray for power and strength to keep my mind on things above. In Jesus Christ’s Name, I pray, Amen.
How are your thoughts affecting your life right now?
