YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK:
YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK; therefore continually purge your thoughts because you become what you think; you must get rid of pride, arrogance, jealousy, depression, low self-esteem and any other traits that tend to pull your thinking away from the “center” in which God has placed you from the beginning. Renew, allow room for the Holy Spirit, be obedient and receptive, “for he gives his angels charge over you to keep you in all your ways” (Psalm 91:11; NKJV).
YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK, your mind is fertile soil where seeds of thought are planted, nurtured and mature over time. If you want to produce good seeds, plant positive thoughts; otherwise, negative seeds planted will eventually drown out the good. “You are the temple of the Living God; as God has said: ‘I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they shall be my people’ ” (2 Corinthians 6: 16); therefore, you are assured that through faith; the grace of God will anchor you in his designated place and time.
What you must do is open up your heart and mind, change what you allow, let go of fear and doubt, allow the Holy Spirit to have full rein of every part of your being. When you accept Jesus as your Savior he renew and rebuild who you are; you begin to think, act and behave differently because he is your hope, the one you learn to become dependent on. YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK and that all changes when you renew and rebuild on the foundation already designed and is available at any moment in time.
YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK, and by being obedient and receptive to what God has to offer you will soon find the point of release, negative thought must go, replaced by positive; once the cycle is in rotation your life becomes like a river that flows freely. For Jesus said, “…He who believes in me, as the scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water” (John 7:37). You are encouraged because you know that what are being perfected in you are grace, hope and peace, that is, if you don’t quit.
You must never allow Satan to have control of your thoughts because what he produces is death, destruction and shattered lives. He comes to take away (curse) instead of giving (bless) and when he find an entrance your thoughts must be centered on Jesus, because he is the one that will give you strength and power to continue to move froth.
Think on the goodness of the Lord, your provider, your keeper, your friend to lean on, because he empowers and lift you to the point where YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK and that is perfected.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health just as your soul prospers (3 John 1:2).
