THEME: Deliberate and Purposeful Thinking
SCRIPTURE:— Colossians 3:2 (AMPC) “And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.”
I believe we should have a think session every day. If we were to sit down regularly and say to ourselves, “I am going to think about a few things for a few minutes,” and then deliberately think about some of the things the Bible tells us to think about, our lives would improve dramatically. Disciplining ourselves to think properly by having on-purpose think sessions will train us to begin thinking better in our everyday lives.
We think about a variety of things every day, but most of us need to deliberately and purposefully change the content of our thoughts. Instead of thinking, I’m no good; I mess up everything; I never do anything right, we can use our mental energy to think about how much God loves us and how we are in a right relationship with Him through Jesus Christ. As you spend more time enjoying purposeful think sessions, great transformation will take place in your life.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, please help me to think purposefully and deliberately to change what I’m thinking about and how I think about myself and others. I’m ready to see transformation, amen.
