Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…
Proverbs 18:21 (KJV) Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
Matthew 9:29 (KJV) Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.
What are you thinking? Do you know that whatever we speak is the product of our beliefs? And what we speak will eventually begin to manifest into our lives? Why? Because we were created in the image and likeness of God (Gen. 1:26). When God created us, we breathed a little portion of Himself into us (Gen 2:7)? What does this mean?
It means that we have the ability to “…call those things which be not as though they were…” (Rom. 4:17). However, because the sin nature within has marred the image and likeness of God in which we were created, those things we speak into existence may not align with the will of God for our lives. This sometimes explains why our lives end up the way they do. It is because our lives and our thoughts are not aligned with God’s thoughts (Is. 55:8,9; Jer. 29:11; 1 Cor. 2:6-16).
Once our lives are realigned with God, our thoughts will be realigned with God. Once our thoughts are aligned with God’s thoughts (His Word), our words will be realigned with His Word. Once our words are aligned with His Word, our activity will be aligned with His creative activity. Once our activity is aligned with His creative activity, our ability to fulfill purpose will be aligned with His purpose (Rom. 8:28).
So, I ask again…what are you thinking?
