The Right Kind of Thoughts

“For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”

– Romans 12:3

Yesterday I shared the importance of sowing or planting your dreams, and with the help of God, they will come to fruition. I also noted that inevitably there will be weeds that will try to hinder your dreams. The first type of weeds you can encounter are negative or sinful thoughts. We know and believe that what we think about is who we will become. In the case of someone who is living an amazing life right now, but who has the worst kinds of thoughts, that is far worse than someone who is living in the darkest, most miserable place, but has the right kind of thoughts. A person’s thoughts serve as a compass, as a map and guide for determining the direction their life will take. This is an absolute rule that cannot be broken. 

I believe there is one weed or thought that above all, can ruin your life. This thought is judgment. Unfortunately, we do it all the time. Judgment is the opposite of forgiveness. When we judge others, we sabotage our lives. Here’s what judgment can sound like: “All rich people are…” When you say this, you’re guaranteeing you will never be rich.

Friend, in the event that you are not where you want to be, it is the result of the way you think. It is essential that you upgrade your philosophy, change what you believe, and change what you think. As God assists you in removing judgment from your thoughts, you will be able to stop self-sabotage from occurring and obtain all God has for your life!

Prayer


Father, help me to refrain from judging others.
