“Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.”
John 14:27 (MNJV)

“Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2 (NKJV)
“Be careful what you think, because your thoughts run your life.” Proverbs 4:23 (NCV)
Every word that comes out of our mouth comes from a thought - whether consciously or unconsciously.
At every point Right Living begins with Right Thinking.
Each of us has a unique perception of the world we live in. This is because we have created it - by our past thoughts.
“For as he thinks within himself, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7 (TPT)
When we think right thoughts, we do right things, and we have right feelings. But when we think wrong thoughts, we do wrong things and have wrong or unpleasant feelings.
That amounts to 116 minutes a day of some sort of unwanted, unwelcome, unhelpful thoughts stealing our joy and neutralizing our effectiveness.
When a train of thoughts shows up, don’t just get on! Slow down before you board it to make sure it’s heading in the right direction.
Bad things happen when you put a negative where there is supposed to be a positive.
“Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Philippians 4:8 (NLT)
Our life goes in the direction of our most dominant thoughts.
“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2 (NKJV)
“Set your thinking on the things that are above, not the things that belong on the earth.” Colossians 3:2 (NTE)
Remember the word of God is our true north. Our minds are like a compass and our thoughts are like a magnet.
“We tear down every proud idea that raises itself against the knowledge of God. We also capture every thought and make it give up and obey.” 2 Corinthians 10:5 (ERV)
Never look where you don’t want to go.
Don’t think about where you don’t want to go.
You can’t stop thinking about something by trying to stop thinking about it.
Negative thoughts can’t lead to a positive life.
You can change the way you feel, by changing the way you think.
You can change your life by changing your thinking.

“Tomorrow, march out against them.” 2 Chronicles 20:16 (NLT)
“But you will not even need to fight. Take your positions; then stand still and watch the Lord’s victory. He is with you.” 2 Chronicles 20:17 (NLT)
