Our thoughts become our words and our words become our actions. Do your thoughts counteract the word of God? If you think about something long enough, you will make it happen. This is why the bible tells us to think on things that are pure and lovely. If you think, you are not good enough or you are not strong enough to carry out God’s plan for your life, then you are held captive by your thoughts and more than likely will never try or give up quickly.
Most people feel like they can’t control their thoughts. Well, that is a lie from the enemy. We control our thoughts by counteracting it with the truth. The inability to control your thoughts is because you do not spend time in the word. The job of the Holy Spirit is to guide us into all truths, if there is no word in you, then the Holy Spirit has no truth to bring up in times of need.
We must know the word for ourselves. You shall have what you think. If you have nothing it is because you think nothing of yourself.
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. - Proverbs 23:7a
