Stinkin' Thinkin'

It's not long before the lies start creeping in....those "non-truth" lies that start infiltrating our lives and before we know it we're down a slippery path of destruction. We're not sure how it started or happened except that we are now in a position where we enjoy the pity party and sulk in our negative thinking. In our heart of hearts we know this to be destructive...but we have been deceived into thinking it's ok.

We need a good kick in the rear end by the Holy Spirit to open our eyes to the situation we are in and I am currently finding myself in the "rear end kicking" spot. What lie are we believing in our lives that is tearing us down? The Word of God says to cast down every negative imagination - and bring your thoughts into the obedience of Jesus Christ. 2 Cor. 10:5 KJV. But here's the issues, we have to CHOOSE to believe the truth of what God says about us through His Word. When my children are dealing with others their age and hearing hurtful things, I remind them...are you believing the Truth or the lie? What does God say about you, son? As a daughter of the King of Kings, He's asking me the same thing. What have I chosen to believe? The enemy waits around to pounce on our weaknesses and by choosing to only believe the Truth, we know that he is defeated.

We must change our thinking before we can change our behavior. So, I ask you this...what are you choosing to allow your thoughts to pursue? Are you believe the Truth of God's Word and what HE says about you or are you believing the lies? For the Word says, "Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worth of praise." Philipians 4:8

So, make a decision today to not let your mind and thoughts go to the lies, but CHOOSE to believe the TRUTH about what Christ and His Word says! It will change your life...you will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free!
