Wrong thinking

 

Just because we feel something or think something, it doesn’t make it right!   Having “life more abundantly” requires us to live deeper than our emotions.  We walk and live by faith, not by our senses, etc.  We can’t stop the thoughts or feelings, but we can do something with them once they try to enter in to “our zone”.  There will be times we will feel like….or be thinking about… giving up.  Things seem to always happen.  It is what we do about them that bring us victory.  WE need to live deeper.  It is a fact that we have lost our job, but it is truth that God supplies all of our need according to His riches in Glory.  It is truth our mind can be renewed.  It is a fact, we may not know God’s will or be hearing Him right now, but it is truth that His sheep hear His voice.  The Spirit leads us into all truth and understanding.  It is expedient that we stand upon what God says about the situation….not what we think or feel about it.  He says, “Let the weak SAY they are strong!  Let the poor SAY I am rich!”  It seems contrary to our senses and emotions, but God’s thoughts and ways are higher than ours.

 

Proverbs 23:7
For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he…

 

Where the mind goes, the body will follow.

 

Romans 12:1-2
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 

We need to change the way we think!

 

Amos 3:3
Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

 

To walk with God in a deeper way, we need to be in agreement with Him, so our thinking needs to conform to His way of thinking.  We have to know Him and His word to know how He thinks.

 

Ephesians 4:17-24
This I say, therefore, and testify in the Lord, that you should no longer walk as the rest of the Gentiles walk, in the futility of their mind, 18 having their understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God, because of the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart; 19 who, being past feeling, have given themselves over to lewdness, to work all uncleanness with greediness. 20 But you have not so learned Christ, 21 if indeed you have heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Jesus: 22 that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

 

If you believe a lie, it becomes true for you!

                          AND

You are right….no matter what you think……

 

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ...

 

We do not have to accept every thought, emotion or feeling as our own.  We have a real enemy……including ourselves when we think and feel wrongly!  If we ask God, He will give us the strength to overcome our “wrong” thinking and lead us into ALL truth and understanding.  Continue seeking God….you will find Him!  Hopefully this will jumpstart your study and reminds you of the importance of “right” thinking as you continue to learn more.  Be blessed as you go forward in your study.
