WOTD: Free to think positive thoughts-Joyce Meyer

This scripture shows us how important it is to think healthy, positive thoughts about ourselves. You cannot love life if you’re always thinking negative thoughts. If you struggle with this, I encourage you to make up your mind to work toward changing your way of thinking. I’ve found the best way to become a positive thinker is to ask God for a lot of help, and to ask for it often.

That’s really the hardest part of being set free from negativism: admitting that it’s a problem and asking God for help. But once you do that, you can overcome it because according to the Bible, you’re a new person in Christ (see 2 Corinthians 5:17).

Many people are afraid to hope because they’ve been hurt so much in life. Their philosophy is: “If I don’t expect anything good to happen, I won’t be disappointed if it doesn’t.”

That’s how I used to think. I had encountered so much disappointment and I was afraid to be positive. When I began to study the Word and trust God to restore me, I realized my negative thoughts had to go.

We need to practice positive thoughts in every situation. If you’re going through a difficult time, expect that God will work things out for your good. As a Christian, it’s time for you to fight for your thoughts, because your mind won’t automatically come into agreement with God’s plans.

I encourage you to spend time examining His Word and comparing it to your thought life. Give God time to help you put your thoughts in line with His. He showed me how to be a more positive person, and He’ll show you how to be one too.
Stay Blessed
