When was the last time you just sat down and thought about the goodness and faithfulness of God? So often, we intend to start our days in the right direction, but then distractions come and the cares of this world creep into our thoughts. Before we know it, we are so focused on our "to do" lists and trying to stay ahead of the game that our thoughts get completely off course!
One thing you have to always be aware of is the fact that what you dwell on will set the direction and quality of your life. If you are constantly dwelling on the "what if's" in life, it opens the door to worry and anxiety. It creates a heaviness in your mind and heart. But, when you dwell on His goodness and faithfulness, it opens the door to His supernatural peace and grace. It lifts your spirit and lightens your load.
Today, I want to remind you to stop and think about what you are thinking about. Don't just let your mind wander off in any old direction. Be intentional about dwelling on the Father. Never forget that He is with you and He is for you. Never forget that He is good and His love never fails. Never forget His promise to prosper you and not to harm you.
As you set your thoughts and affections on Him, you set your day in the right direction. You'll feel the cares of this world begin to disappear. You'll see solutions you never even thought of before. You'll experience His peace and joy and be empowered to embrace the blessing and victory He has in store for you!
"Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." (Colossians 3:2, NIV).
