God Thoughts

According to God's word, letting God's Spirit control our minds leads to life and peace; letting the flesh dominate our minds leads to turmoil and death (Romans 8:5-6). Our lives will go in the direction of our strongest thoughts. Our inner dialogue affects the overall condition of our lives, empowering or hindering God's purpose in us. 

Here's how to renew your mind: 1) Confront your most common negative thoughts (defeat, failure, critical spirit, judgments, hatred, loneliness, rejection, abandonment, fear, doubt, etc.). 2) Capture them by commanding these sinful thoughts to stop immediately, disabling their ability to invade your mind, your will, and emotions. 3) Confess God Thoughts based on God's word (see list below) to demolish the strongholds of destructive thinking. Begin to develop the discipline of replacing negative thoughts with Spirit led, Christ centered, God Thoughts. Generate your own custom list of God Thoughts and begin to declare these truths aloud before you start your day, so you can be transformed into a new person by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2).
