Free Your Mind
Free Your Mind of... Your Inner Critic.
We all have an inner critic. Listen, negative thoughts towards you in your mind are not from God… they are from the enemy trying to discourage you. We all need a heightened awareness of where these negative thoughts come from. When you zero in on the roots of these thoughts, you will find they are lies. When you identify this, you realize the smart thing to do is resist letting ourself being consumed by these lies.
Free Your Mind of… Judgment.
I’m guilty! I don’t speak judgments but I think them. For example if I see a mom and kids and they are barefoot walking into Walmart, I am sad. Sometimes we have judgmental thoughts about others and we don’t even have all the facts. To be at true peace, we must resist having judgmental thoughts because they are stressful and may not even be true.
Free Your Mind of… Impossibilities.
God so wants to bless us in a myriad of ways. He longs to pour His favor over our lives. Sometimes God just does it…grants us favor and blesses us. Other times God is waiting for us to ask Him for our needs and desires. Ephesians 3:20 tells us that, “God will do exceedingly and abundantly beyond all our minds can comprehend or imagine according to his power within us.”
Free Your Mind of…Negative Thinking
It is a scientific fact that as adults we receive excessive negative thoughts daily. But the stats are astounding! Every one of us has more than 15,000 thoughts per day and 2/3 of those thoughts are negative. Here’s your cure! Listen to this familiar scripture from The Message. Philippians 4:8 tells us, "Meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.
"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love. For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” ~ Galatians 5:13-14
