The Power of Your Thoughts: -
By Adenuga Sunday Joseph
What you think can either make you or mar you. Infact, thoughts are "things", they are "forces". You know that forces have the ability to do work; they have the ability to compel things to happen. Thoughts are spiritual because when they become imaginations and are positively directed, they are potent. Thoughts link us directly with spirit realm; we touch the spirit world only through our thought life. See Proverbs 4:23
Keep thy heart will all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
One translation put it the way I like; it says,"…out of it are forces of life".
When you need the force of life to bring any change to any situation; that force of change must commence from your heart. When Jesus said, "from the time of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of God suffereth violence, the violence taketh it by force" Matt.11: 12. He was not talking about the force of arms, or the force of physical strength but He was referring to the forces of your mind. That is why Romans 12:2 says
"And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect, will of God.
You need to renew your mind, why? So that it may be able to give you a new strength: and that greater forces maybe produced from your thoughts. When the forces of your concentrated thoughts (on success) combines with your positive confession, then you can be sure of an inescapable success.
Your thoughts can make life say yes instead of no, it affects your attitude, which is the dominant factor of charisma. The better your thoughts, the more charismatic you become. Though you may not be physically attractive as some others, yet everybody will always want you. You attract success even as you also attract people.
Many people have died as a result of thinking themselves to death. Some have literally thought themselves into failure. The bible says, "As a man thinketh in his heart so is he". If you think you will die, then you will die soon; if you want to succeed but think you cannot, then you will not. If you love good health and you are always thinking sickness, seeing yourself on sick bed, you will soon fall into sickness.
What do you when evil thoughts come? Renew your mind with the word of God; you must intentionally stop the negative thinking. Change it to a positive thinking. See yourself healthy, see yourself in abundance, see yourself as a success, believe what you see about yourself (in your thoughts), and then say it out loud. You shall make it.
