Are your thoughts out of focus?

All of us, to varying degrees and at different times, deal with self-doubt.  Here’s one of the best ways to combat this.

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)

It all boils down to where we are focusing our thoughts.  Meditating through the day on the ‘things that are excellent and worthy of praise’ can be hard for some of us.  But let me encourage you.  It does get easier the more we train our minds to hear the voice our Father in Heaven over everything else.  Not everything we hear from our spouse, kids, or co-workers is going to be excellent and worthy of praise.

But!!!  There’s a HUGE ‘but’ here.

But everything you will hear from Jesus WILL BE.

Our God only desires for us to grow.  He only wants us to be confident in Him.  And He only wants us to hear His voice…not the enemy’s.   Spend time in His Word today….everyday.  Find something good He is saying for you or about you.  Then, meditate (think deeply) on that one thing all through your day.

May you be convinced of His love and thoughts toward you OVER anyone else.
