Transformational Thoughts

It seems we over look the connection between our thoughts and transformation. This would be the ultimate self help wouldn’t it?

Our thoughts shape who we are and who we are becoming. In fact our thoughts are so powerful that they effect our generations to come. Our character, anxiety and fears impact our kids even before they are born. The science of epigenetic proves this and the Bible clearly states this too.

Exodus 34:7 “maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion and sin. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children and their children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.”

One of the most important things I have learned through the hardest time in my life is that we need to captivate every thought. If our thoughts are being fueled by our emotions they are as reliable as the sand blowing in the wind. Never should we make a permanent decision based on a temporary feeling or thought.

It’s so easy to let the world get a strong grip on us. It’s so easy to let the enemy sit on our shoulder and whisper “your not good enough” “you should be more like them” “your not really loved” and so on. The only way you will ever be able to captivate your thoughts enough to see transformation in your life is to put into practice Psalm 46:10 “Be still and know that I am God”. That requires stillness, something most people today have no time for. We are over worked and over run with activities and it comes with the price of never really having true peace, contentment and joy.

Think about all that could change in your life if you started believing God’s truth that we are made in the image of Christ. Imagine all that could change if we prayed as much as we worried.

In 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 the Apostle Paul tells us to destroy strong holds. Worry, fear, insecurity and guilt can all be strong holds or mental blocks in our mind. We need to destroy them because what we allow in our minds will control our lives. Everyday we have a choice of who we will believe… The truth that God says we are loved, chosen and forgiven or Satan – the father of lies.

It has taken me a lot of time to learn to captivate my thoughts but I am much more aware now about what I am thinking of. As soon as I feel upset, afraid, sad or jealous I can recognize it is a negative thought and I realign myself with the promises and truths of God. I refocus and think about what I am thankful for and the blessings I have been given both big and small. This is possible because I find my identity in Christ and he tells me I am MORE than enough! When we fully consume ourselves with Jesus there is no time left to focus on our own problems. The only thing worry and fear does is stop God from being able to work good in our lives. Scripture tells us he wants to do good for us and through us.

Psalm 37:3-4 “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land and befriend faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

When we rid ourselves of negative thoughts and fill our minds with the way of the Lord we will see transformation and joy will be overflowing!
