know the mind of God

Change Your World

The Golden Nugget: “Change your thoughts and change your world.” —Norman Vincent Peale

Daily Verse: “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” —Romans 12:2

Daily Message: 
The way you think governs the way you live. Some people think it’s the other way around, and this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Their lives govern the way they think. But a life of faith in God is one in which your present and future are greatly impacted by your thinking. You can change your world, or you can let the world control you.

Such is the power of your mind. You have the power to transform your life. You can enrich your mind or impair it. When someone has a cold, you take steps not to get infected, don’t you? That person could make you sick. The same is true with people whose thoughts are negative, mean, or ungodly. They can make you think the same way, and your life will mirror your thinking.

Rather, absorb godly thinking. You can know the mind of God by taking in what God has revealed about himself through thought, word, and deed. Changing your thoughts will rock your world!

Consider This:

  • What does “feed your mind” mean to you?
  • Sometimes life events present themselves to you independent of your thinking. How would changed thinking engage those things?

Take Action:
Read the book of Philippians in the Bible. It is very encouraging.
