Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”
To call these words inspiring is like calling the Alps a bunch of pebbles. These are life-changing kernels of truth that, if accepted into the human heart, has the power to liberate captives and restore broken hearts.
There’s one catch: these words are only activated for those who are in Jesus Christ. Anyone can read the Bible, but it’s promises only work on conditions. Once those conditions are met anything—and I mean anything—is possible.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.Philippians 4:8
The Bible teaches us to be careful about what we think. Our thoughts can become words, our words become actions, and our actions become habits that are difficult to break.
This week, instead of focusing on spiritually draining things like problems, past failures or regrets, choose to focus on the spiritually uplifting things like the power of God’s Word that is transforming your life.
Think God’s thoughts.
