Wishes not actions cannot lead to success. In my previous post “Que sarah, sarah! Ohh Sorry!!!” I showed how success is achieved by acting. But not all actions end in success. I will be sharing a simple and effortless key for achieving success in every area of life. I said effortless because it costs you nothing, material and otherwise. It is called THINKING.
I want to take the first half of Proverbs 23:7 literally. “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he”. A man’s life is the product of his thought. Our thought is like the programming platform for our life; whatever we input there determines what the “output” of life becomes. It is just like they say “garbage in, garbage out”.
Life feeds us what we demand for in our thought, consciously or unconsciously, regardless of our actions. Is it not funny how a student prepares so well for a paper but because of the thought or the “fear” of failure ends up failing the paper. He did not plan to fail but demanded for failure by not thinking he will pass the paper.
Proverbs 4:23 (NCV) Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.The devil, like most people pass the blame on most times is not even at fault, just like in the case of Job. The devil was not the cause of Job’s demise but his inability to control his thought. (Job 3:25) “For the thing I greatly feared has come upon me, and what I dreaded has happened to me”.
What you think runs your life, you cannot have a different result in life from what you think.
In-case you fall in and out of the hospital, you may say “I don’t think sick”, but maybe you’ve seen falling sick as something normal, that you can avoid. Or yours maybe “As long as I’m human, I should fall sick once in a while”. That is it right there; your thought. You may not think it directly but you don’t think otherwise.
The reason you are broke is not because your income is small but you have measured yourself in your thought to the level of your income or the economy of your state, think rich and you will see God bring supplies to you from everywhere.
God cannot act without you agreeing with Him in your mind (thought). God had to get Abraham to think positive; see things from His view, before He could make him a father at a hundred years old. Genesis 15:5-6 5 Then He brought him outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” 6 And he believed God…
If you will start thinking possibilities, you will soon be surrounded by them. Think health, regardless of your present health condition, think rich. Never forget that your life walks in the same path behind your thought.
Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. “For as you think in your heart, so are you” Proverbs 4:23 & Proverbs 23:7
Welcome to a life with no limit as you start thinking same.
