Joel Osteen daily devotionals August 6 2022 Transformed :
Ephesians 4:23–24, NIV
…to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.
Your life follows your thoughts. If your thoughts have been running in a negative pattern for year after year, it’s as though they’ve dug a deep riverbed that flows in only one direction. With every pessimistic thought, the riverbed is a bit deeper and the current stronger. Fortunately, we can dig a new river, one going in a positive direction. When you start to dwell on God’s Word and see the best in situations, you are redirecting the flow of that river one thought at a time. As you reject negative thoughts and redirect the flow, as you choose faith instead of fear, expecting good things, that negative stream will dwindle and the positive river will flow with faith-filled thoughts of victory.
Keep in mind that the river of negativity wasn’t formed overnight, nor will it be redirected without some conscious, strenuous effort on your part. God will help you. Start expecting good things. Stay full of faith, full of joy, full of hope. If you transform your thinking, God will transform your life.
Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that it is possible for me to enter into the flow of positive, faith-filled thoughts of victory. Thank You that I can reject negative thoughts and choose faith over fear. I believe that as I dwell on Your Word that my mind will be renewed and my life will be transformed. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
