When you think about something, it has a tendency to stay there all day. Therefore, it is important to make sure that what you are thinking about is positive. Most importantly, it should be true.
If the thoughts that you are having are not based in truth, then they should be avoided, and they should be changed. One way to do this is with God’s Word. God’s Word can be used to refute any negative thinking that one might have.
Whenever a negative thought comes, replace it with what God says in His Word. If you don’t know enough of God’s Word, you can start learning it by reading a little each day. Then, when you need it, you can declare it!
Declaring the Word is so important. There is so much power in it, and it can deflect any lies you think about yourself or your situation. Whether the lies are coming from your mind or the outside world, they are coming from the devil.
How do you know? Everything good comes from God. Anything not good or a lie comes from Satan (the devil).
“You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out his desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, refusing to uphold the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, because he is a liar and the father of lies.”John 8:44
“God is no mere human! He doesn’t tell lies or change his mind. God always keeps his promises.”Number 23:19
The devil wants our minds to be cluttered with lies. This way, we are confused and distracted all day long. As a result, we have lost precious time that could have been spent in service to the Lord or His creation.
Hopefully, the next time a lie comes from the devil, you will be ready. Armed with the Word of God, you will be! Only the Word of God can help you to watch and protect your thoughts.
Praying for you,
