This weekend we continued our series, “Get Real” and I had the privilege of speaking on the power of our thinking.
Deuteronomy 30 19 “Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh, that you would choose life, so that you and your descendants might live! 20 You can make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying him, and committing yourself firmly to him. This[b] is the key to your life. And if you love and obey the Lord, you will live long in the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.”
Romans 12:2 (NLT)2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
Choosing life starts in your thoughts.
2 Corinthians 10:5 We destroy arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to obey Christ,
1 John 4:4 You have already won a victory over those people, because the Spirit who lives in you is greater than the spirit who lives in the world.
Research shows that DNA actually changes shape according to our thoughts. As you think those negative thoughts about the future – the week ahead, what a person might say or do – that toxic thinking will change your brain wiring in a negative direction and throw your mind and body into stress.
