Just Thinking: Changing Your Thoughts

Romans 12:2 (KJV) 2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Every day on my way home, I pass the construction of some new apartments. Initially, all I saw was cleared land and some signs announcing the arrival of a new complex. I thought it would look like all of the other apartment buildings surrounding it, so I paid it no attention. However, with each passing day, the construction began to take shape and it looked nothing like the buildings around it. They are set further back from the road and there’s a cute little bridge that cars will have to cross in order to access the property. Day by day the apartments look less like a bunch of boards (to me at least) and more like beautiful apartment homes. The architectural design is what makes it stand out and I believe that alone will attract a lot of people seeking to find a new home.

Have you ever considered how powerful the human mind is? We are able to conceive a thought and turn it into reality. Our thoughts, words and actions are all connected and have a major impact. Someone had a vision of those apartments in their mind and it set off a sequence of actions. What was once barren is now taking shape and becoming reality. What’s barren in your life? Do your thoughts set you apart from everyone else? God has a purpose for you and each time you delve into His Word it brings shape to your thinking. God planted His purpose in our lives and what once seemed like just a bunch of thoughts will begin to form a new reality. The same God who created the universe with three words, “Let there be”, is the same God who wants to write His Words in our hearts. Don’t just get up day after day and wing it; you were born with purpose. The Nike brand says Just Do It, but I say Just Think It. Change your thoughts to Godly thoughts, which will change your speech and in turn change the world around you! Let there be vision, purpose and life in your world.
