A NEW WAY OF LIVING REQUIRES A NEW WAY OF THINKING
By Howard Tuten
-Don’t waste the day in dread, when you could be spending it in expectation.
If we can pray against bad things happening, we can pray for good things to happen.
-You may say today, “Nothing will ever change…” but the truth is, the only thing here to stay is constant change.
“Wait passionately for God, don’t leave the path. He’ll give you a place in the sun while you watch the wicked lose it.” Don’t leave the path God placed you on.
-You may also say, “It’s not my nature to wait…” Well, allow today to be the first day of the rest of your life.
-The Holy Spirit said, “You are destined for greatness, but first you must change the way you think…” It’s time to see things differently. We must be willing to change, before we can change. Once we change, the situations we face will change or God will show us how to deal with them the way they are.
-The Bible says, “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but principalities (principles we’ve been taught), powers, and Spiritual wickedness in high places…” This could deal with deception in our ways of thinking things ought to be that have influenced our belief system.
-Some principles, the way we were programmed to respond to “LIFE”, may be wrong, or just incomplete. We need to re-program our minds according to the principles of God’s Word and things will begin to change.
-We will prosper as our soul (mind, will, and emotions) prospers. We don’t have to worry & we don’t have to live in a constant state of dread. Those are FEAR BASED principles that need to be DELETED from our way of thinking and facing situations.
“Watch your thoughts, for they become your words.
Watch your words, for they become your actions.
Watch your actions, for they become your habits.
Watch your habits, for they become your character.
Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny.”
