Thinking Like JesusMonday, July 18, 2016
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. That is a POWERFUL statement. That means, you can change who you are! If you don't like where you're at in life right now, then don't stay there! Start thinking (and speaking) differently!
Everyday (*most days) I read out loud a list of declarations over my life.
Some things on the list include:
"I am prosperous, the Lord has paid my debt and supplied all of my needs!" (Phil 4:19)
"I am a blessing everywhere I go and everything I put my hand to will prosper!" (Deut 28:2-14)
"The Lord has huge, awesome plans for my life- blessings are overtaking me today!" (Jeremiah 29:11, Deut 28:2-14)
"The Lord speaks to me, I hear His voice and I follow Him" (John 10:27)
"I am the righteousness of Christ, forgiven, redeemed, and made perfect" (2 Cor 5:21)
"I am healthy and I am in shape, my youth is being renewed everyday" (Is 40:31, 1 John 4;17)
"I have favor with God, I have favor with man, and I have understanding" (Psalms 5:12, Prov 3:4)
I also have things on my list that I want to see happen in my life. I picture myself doing them! I've actually had to update my list several times because I accomplished what I said (and thought)!
Take some time and think about who you want to be. Don't stop there, though. Write it down and declare it over your life.
It's so cool to see yourself change and become the person the Lord has called you to be!
Believe it or not, He really does have HUGE, AWESOME plans for your life!
