“Indeed, the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides the soul from spirit, joints from marrow; it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4: 12)
Stop for a moment and do something for me. Think about, what you think about, all daylong.
Is the dominant focus of your mind defeatist thinking, feeling separate from the truth of God’s presence, seeing others as “less-than,” gossip, dishing others behind their back, any of those things that fail to acknowledge the spiritual presence and being of others?
Think about what you think about all day and stop at the end of the day and look around at what has been created in your life. Is it more stress, thoughts spinning around inside of you of distrust, fear and maybe even physical discomfort? Or do you get to the end of your day and find that you are surrounded by the presence of God and that your life is unfolding beautifully – toward a greater expression of Spirit’s, Jesus as the Christ, God’s – call it what you will – glory and goodness, filling you with renewed hope and possibility?
We have each been given everything we need for life and godliness by a God who loves us unconditionally, but we must be mindful of that, affirm that, and live from that place of truth. When we live from that place we are living in a very affirmative atmosphere, one that will draw to us still more of the same. Nothing in our humanness becomes a limitation because we live and breathe in the midst of God/Spirit. In that atmosphere and presence we always will get through whatever life may throw our way. Think about what you think about all day long.
Too often we make it way too difficult. Affirming we are surrounded by God’s beautiful presence, our trust and faith then becomes a powerful inner knowing that allows us to relax and melt into the Holy presence.
What you think about all day long is what you will experience. So, what are you thinking about? It might be time to make some changes.
Affirmation: “With God’s guidance and blessing I think on only those things I wish to experience.”
