Everything that happens in our lives starts as a thought. It begins as a fleeting thought, but if we allow ourselves to consider it, the thought grows. The more we meditate on it, the more it takes root in our hearts and then our lives.
Proverbs 23:7 says that as a man thinks in his heart so does he become.
What are you allowing to take up residence in your heart? Are you worrying about your performance at work? Are you spending sleepless nights trying to figure out how to pay off your debt? Maybe you are concerned about your children’s future, and they are still toddlers.
Whatever you think about the most will happen in your life. If you meditate on a negative outcome, that is what you will see happen in reality. If, however, you focus on a positive outcome, that is the reality you will see.
Counter those bad thoughts with God’s promises. Focus on them instead.
Worry will take your sleep, your time and your peace. Focusing on the Word of God will add good things to your life. It will make your future sweeter and will change your life in ways you did not think possible.
