Positive minds — minds full of faith and hope — produce positive lives. Negative minds — minds full of fear and doubt — produce negative lives. In Matthew 8:13, Jesus tells us that it will be done for us as we have believed. This doesn’t mean that you and I can get anything we want by just thinking about it. God has perfect plan for each of us, and we can’t control Him with our thoughts and words, but if we want His plan, we should think and speak in agreement with His will and plan for us.
I encourage you to think positively about your life and be thankful for the good things God is doing and going to do. Practice staying positive in every situation that arises; even if you’re going through a difficult situation, stand in faith, believing God will bring good out of it as He has promised in His Word.
Prayer of Thanks
Father, help me to keep my thoughts and my words focused on You. I thank You that You have good things in store for my life. I trust You today.
