As You Think So are You

As You Think: So are You

People today are starting to acknowledge a truth that writers of the Bible knew 3000+ years ago. For instance Solomon (Proverbs 23:7) says As he thinketh in his heart, so is he. The United Christian Broadcasters in their Word For Today took this theme up and on Sunday 5th of May 2013 said:

It’s not what others say to you or about you that determines your future; it’s what you say to yourself (i.e. think) when others have finished speaking!

They quote another Bible verse, again from Proverbs, this time 18:21 which says, ‘Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit’. They comment: “You say, ‘I’d love to have a better relationship but I’m afraid that if I make the first move and they don’t respond, I’ll feel rejected.’ Or, ‘I’d like to pursue my education but I’m afraid if I register for classes and can’t do the work, I’ll feel stupid.’

These kinds of words become self-fulfilling prophecies. Until you replace your negative self-talk with faith-talk you’ll always live in fear. Your mind is like the womb of your spirit; it nurtures each seed you sow until the time of delivery. If you don’t want what a seed will ultimately produce, you must stop sowing it, or feeding it. Your first step in breaking fear’s hold over you is in recognising the self-talk that got you into trouble in the first place. This is not easy to do. It takes vigilance, self-awareness, discipline and scriptural reprogramming.

But by changing your thoughts you’ll begin to change your life. Job says, ‘You will…declare a thing, and it will be established for you.’ And the amazing part is, at times you may not feel like you believe the particular Scripture you’re standing on. That’s okay; your inner self accepts what it’s consistently fed and begins to act accordingly. So starting today, serve an eviction notice to every negative thought that’s holding you back and begin feeding your mind with God’s Word.”

As You Think: Who Else Says So

They are saying much the same thing as Janet Legere said on Saturday 4th May 2013 in her weekly talk on how to succeed on the internet. She says that it all starts with how we think. It has been truly said that if you think you can and if you think you cannot you are right, because by thinking you cannot you have already defeated whatever it is you think you want to do. Think you can, take the steps needed to achieve it and it will be yours.

Zig Ziglar what said:

If you can dream it you can achieve it.
You will get all you want in Life if you
Help enough other people achieve what they

As You Think: Be Careful What You Think

But be careful what you think and how you set about achieving what you want. Do not believe those who tell you that things have changed for the better because it is now, for instance, 2013. Not that many years ago we were told that certain organs in our bodies were not needed because they were through backs to our evolutionary past. But further research has proved this is not the case. We are also told that our moral values need to change. If our moral values are based on a belief in “The Survival of the Fittest”, you may think that taking from others or riding roughshod over them is a good way to achieve what you want.

But do those who adhere to this belief not take into consideration that, like gravity, etc, moral laws could be part and parcel of what is and we do not break them, but they break us, and not only us, but those around us, and the more power the person breaking them has the more people are affected. Tnink about it. All the big countries in the West have money problems most of them caused because greedy people in our banks took risks with our money and landed us into debt.

But there is another aspect to this that has to be taken into consideration. It is legitimate to want to make money, there are things we all need and have to have money to buy them, but other things that we would like for both ourselves and our family, and some men and women think they are doing their best for their families by working all the hours they can to give them things that money can buy. But there are things money cannot buy and they realise they have lost what they cannot replace, seeing their children while they are still growing up, having missed their biSrthdays, school prize giving, etc, so they could work.

So think what you want to achieve, make plans to achieve it, but take into consideration what you could loose in achieving it.
