Sometimes our thought patterns accumulated over time produce action and quality of life. On the other hand, sometimes our thinking has produced stagnation or mediocrity. If we believed that everything we were going through is preparation to be used in our future and for our good-we would change our outlook. Think of where each of us might be if we actually planted good thought seeds. Then we would reap what we were choosing to believe and what God says about us. What if you actually believed in yourself and were kind, affirming and loving in your thoughts toward yourself? What if you guarded your thoughts and thought on good, pleasant, prospering things and the talents, gifts God has given you-not the failure, frustration, regret, or self-sabotaging thoughts you might be allowing in? Then you would reap the result of those good thoughts.
Why don’t we believe what we know hypothetically to be true? We need to remember that the works God prepared in advance for us to do crucify our flesh. God uses these difficulties to open us up for change and transformation.
Position yourself in faith so God can open doors of opportunity. The changes and brokenness you have endured have positioned you for a new beginning. What has been torn down and broken has made a way for the Spirit’s enablement. Put the past behind you. God is doing a new thing-do you not perceive it? He is making a way in the desert, streams in the wasteland! It is never too late to achieve God’s purpose and hope in His kingdom!
