Right Thinking

Nothing ever happens by chance. Everything, good or bad, that comes into our lives is a result of the thoughts we have engaged in, or by what God has ordained to get our attention.

I believe we create our own luck, whether it be good or bad. Consciously, or unconsciously, we may have ourselves at some time or another, produced our conditions, desirable, or undesirable, either in our bodily health or other circumstances.

There used to be a bumper sticker that read, "God is my co-pilot." Later, someone created another one that read, "If God is your co-pilot, switch seats." No, it was right the first time. God has put us in the drivers seat. He said, "I set before you life and death, blessing and cursing, therefore, choose life" (Deut 30:19).

It's so easy to blame someone, or something, and make excuses as to why we may be experiencing certain unpleasant situations. But, we must be mature enough to take full responsibility for our lives and quit playing the part of the victim. It is so liberating when you can say, "I got myself into this, and with God's help, I can get out." There is no power in acting like a victim.

Sure, there is an enemy who roams around like a roaring lion. He is the master of disaster, and he prides himself on it. He wants us to feel like a victim and feel completely helpless. We shouldn't give him the credit for any of our problems because he is a defeated foe. God has given us all power and authority over the devil and nothing shall by any means hurt us. (Luke 10:19)

As long as we go on thinking wrongly about ourselves and our lives, the same sort of difficulties will continue to harass us. For every seed must inevitably bring forth after its own kind, and thought is the seed of destiny.

There is no easy way out of trouble, but there is a simple way. Learn to think rightly instead of wrongly, and conditions will begin to improve. Sooner or later, all ill health, poverty, loneliness, and inharmony must disappear.

Life doesn't need to be a battle. It should be a glorious adventure, for Christ died that we may have life, and have it to its full. (John 10:10)
