The theme for Pastor Jerry Savelle Daily Devotional for today October 21 2023 is ”RESHAPE YOUR THOUGHTS”.
If you are ever going to experience God’s best then you are going to have to get rid of your mental blocks. You can actually shape a better future for yourself by reshaping your thoughts now.
Jeremiah 29:11 (AMPC) says, “For I know the thoughts and plans I have for you, says the Lord, thoughts and plans for welfare and peace and not for evil, to give you hope in your final outcome.”
Notice how God’s thoughts are connected to your future. Wouldn’t it stand to reason that if you think the same thoughts as He thinks then your future will match His plan?
When God speaks a word into your spirit, He expects you to make it your most dominant thought. Get up thinking about it and go to bed thinking about it. Think about it throughout the day. Never let it out of your mind.
If you’re believing for healing in your body, then the Word says: “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed” (Isaiah 53:5).
Imagine that Word coming to pass in your life. Cast those thoughts down that try to say you’ll never be healed of this sickness or disease. Talk about your healing. Confess your healing. Stand on the promises of God for your healing and never give up.
If you’re believing for restoration in your marriage and family, then confess Joel 2:25: “And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpillar, and the palmerworm...”
Imagine God restoring the years back to you. If you can conceive it in your mind and in your heart, then you’ll eventually have it. Think about God healing your family. Imagine peace and happiness in your home. Talk about it. Believe it. Confess it.
Deuteronomy 6:7, 9 says: “…thou shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. . . . and thou shalt write them…”
What was God saying to them? Simply this: “Let My words be the controlling force in your life – think about them, talk about them, and do them.”
Confession: I will let God’s Word be the controlling force in my life. I will line up my thoughts with His thoughts so my future will match His plan for my life.
