Have your thoughts ever fought against the direction you desired in life? How often have you believed what someone else told you, only to find out later that it was not the truth? What you think does matter. When we pray for God to intervene in a situation, we have to believe what God says is true and not fall back into our human evaluation of our condition. God’s thoughts are so much higher than our thoughts and His desire for us is so much better than our human minds can imagine that it can be easy to let others have control of your mind and your thoughts. (Psalm 55:8 For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.) If you are not agreeing with God’s promises with your faith, words, and thoughts, you will not receive God’s plan for your life. You can’t pray, “God help me,” and then only have negative thoughts about your prayers. You have to learn to pray, walk, and think in the promise that God has thoughts for our lives. God’s has a plan is to bless us and not harm us. God has plans to give you hope and a future. If you are thinking differently than this, you are not thinking God’s thoughts for your life. If God is so powerful and His thoughts so much higher than my thoughts, why are my thoughts so important. Proverbs 23:7 says, For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he; Your thoughts matter! You can STOP God’s plan for your life by thinking your own weak fleshly thoughts, and agreeing with Satan and others about your inabilities. You have to have faith and believe God’s thoughts for your life and receive His Word into your heart. Then you can live the good plan He has for you! Pastor Don
