What You Think Upon Grows Day

Posted on: May 31, 2009

Today is What You Think Upon Grows Day according to the wacky holidays e-mail I receive. This is also something the Lord has been speaking to me for a long time.

If we meditate on our problems, how horrible our life is, and just general negative stuff we will not be happy. And we will not be effective witnesses for Christ. If we meditate on Him, His promises and His goodness, we will have a much more positive outlook on life. God is a creative being and He has given us His nature. Our thoughts and words are very powerful, much more powerful than we give them credit.

Proverbs 23:7a “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Philippians 4:8,9 “Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy–meditate on these things.”

Things I’ve done to help my thought life:

Make a list of things I want to see come about in my life and family and church and confess them

Make a list of Scriptures that speak to my situation and meditate on them…I plan to hang them around our house as well

Subscribe to Gregory Dickow Ministries “Fasting from Wrong Thinking” e-mails and make myself read them daily.

How do you change your thinking patterns?
