Small Truths, Big Impact
An idea can graduate into a great grand thing and take you places you have never been before or could even dream! It can also take you to the deepest depths of shame and regret if used incorrectly! Every thought or decision is a crossroad to success or failure, but all this starts in your mind! How you choose to think has a great deal about the outcome of your situation. If your attitude is poor, expect poor results. If you come at things in your life with negativity, then expect negativity! Your mindset is what will drive the results in every aspect of your life. There is a profound rule that God has put in place, what you put into your mind is what is going to come out in some way, shape, or form. What you are putting in will come out through your actions, how you treat people, how you handle hardships, how you think your way through life. But, most important, what you put into your mind will affect your relationship with God!
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!”
Matthew 6:22-23 (ESV)
This is why the Bible teaches us to have our eyes (minds) fixed on God! (Hebrews 12:2) Also, that we are to be "Forever Learners". Have you ever heard "knowledge is power", well it's true! If there is a battle that means, there is an enemy. An enemy who is studying your weakness and exploring ways to exploit you and ultimately hurt you (Luke 22:31). Moreover, this will help us better understand God’s perfect Will in our lives!
1.) Fill your mind with God and His Word
2.) Take ownership of your mind.
3.) Remember this ~GIGO~ Garbage In/Garbage Out.
4.) Never stop learning.
5.) Defense is the best "Offence"
6.) Understand What God’s Will is for you.
If we strive to strengthen ourselves and submit ourselves to God, we can then come closer to the person He has made us to be. We will never be perfect, but we can try and become more for ourselves, for our families, for all those around you. Ultimately, we should want to do these things to strengthen our relationship with God!
