Your thoughts matter. According to the Bible, your thoughts are shaping your life! Proverbs 4:23 (GNT) “Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.”
To change your life, you must change your thinking. Paul, the apostle, wrote about this in Romans 12:2 (NLT) “Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.”
Your thoughts can be divided into 4 primary categories:
- Thoughts about God.
- Thoughts about yourself.
- Thoughts about others.
- Thoughts about life circumstances and events.
When you’re thinking in any of these 4 areas is faulty, your life will be malformed and dysfunctional. You can’t function at your best when your foundational thinking is negatively skewed.
Part of growing as a believer in Jesus Christ involves changing our thinking about God, ourselves, others and the world around us. We need to build our thoughts on the truth of God’s Word. When we think the right way, we’ll live the right way!
