Our thoughts are important, so important that Satan uses them to insert his lies. He knows are mind is powerful and if he can get us to think lowly of ourselves, believe his lies and think impure things, he has us.
Proverbs 23:7 says ” For as he thinks within himself, so is he.” NKJV
So if you think you won’t get that job, your poor, your worthless that is what you become. What you think ultimately travels to your heart. Just like words are powerful so are your thoughts and you have to fight back with the word of God. God thinks so highly of you that he gave his only begotten son as a living sacrifice for you. Jesus DIED FOR YOU! He SUFFERED FOR YOU so you wouldn’t have to.
Romans 8:6 ” For the mind is set on the flesh is death, but the mind set on the spirit is life and peace.” NKJV
When you think your worthless or other fleshly or undesirable things, have you noticed you that you don’t feel happy or joyful even when you hang out with your friends? That’s because when your mind is set to think on things that are not good or positive or noble it brings death and destruction.
Philippians 4:8 “Finally, Brethren, whatever is true, whatever is Honorable, whatever is righ, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.”
It’s important to meditate on Gods word daily, Pray without ceasing and be careful of what you watch and listen to. Ultimately what you watch and listen to you will dwell on. For an example If your listening to secular music a song about heartbreak and what that man did to you. You will dwell on, how can you be healed if you keep you mind on your heart break. What room do you lave for God to heal your heart? That’s why you should be careful of what you listen to and watch. You will dwell on the things that you give your attention to on a daily basis. when you dwell on God and his word it brings peace and life.
That doesn’t mean you won’t struggle or go through trials but it means God will be there, he will be your strength. Don’t take my word for it read the Bible for yourself, pray, and fast. Ask God to reveal it you.
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” Second Corinthians 12:9
