RIGHT THINKING AND DOING

December 14, 2013

Right thinking and doing are paramount in the life of a believer. People can say all kinds of things about you, but what matters are your personal thoughts about yourself. In warfare, if you perceive yourself as victorious and capable of doing what the scriptures instructs, you will be successful. Believers cannot just think; thinking must be coupled with doing. In order to prosper we first must do. The following scriptures confirm these two things:
Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.
Psalms 1:3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Another important concept to internalize is everyone is under attack. No one is exempt. Job 14:1 says, “Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble,” and Matthews 5:45 tells us God makes His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and He sends rain on the just and on the unjust. Sometimes we look at others and have a pity party for ourselves because we think the grass looks better in their yard. However, if we were to do a close examination we would find it is full of weeds just like ours. Know this; everyone living will have their own individual challenges.
The scripture also inform us the outcome of our battles. Psalms 34:19 says “Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.” There is nothing the enemy tries to put on you from which you cannot be delivered and Isaiah 54:17 gives us more vital information. It says “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord.” In other words evil, unfortunate things will form but these things do not have to defeat you, because your godly heritage changes the outcome.
I have found the enemy tries to intimidate me, tries to make me feel scared, and tries to make me think if I engage in warfare I will experience additional problems. However, in II Timothy 1:7 I have learned God has not given me the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. On my own I would fail, but with the help of God I can endure the challenges in life. I can reject and resist the spirit of fear that the enemy attempts to send my way. Instead, I confess I have power, love and right thinking.
Finally, I encourage you if you have not been thinking right and if you have been a lazy believer, from today make a change. YOU CAN IF YOU DO.
