Thought Life

"Whatever a man (or woman) puts into his mind and thinks about determines what he will feel.  We can't control our emotions.  We can only control our thoughts. . . Therefore, it is absolutely critical that we think thoughts that are truth rather than thoughts that are error."  Bob George

"What I think determines how I feel, which then impacts how I behave."  Jerusha Clark

"Like a virus, our thoughts have the ability to drain our energy and cripple our usefulness.  Our thoughts can, however, also be a source of strength when we dwell on the powerful truths of Scripture."  Elizabeth George

So many women live defeated lives because of  their thought life.  They live in fear of the future, guilt from the past, insecurities of who they are, and often projecting themselves to places God never means for them to go.  Proverbs 23:7 says, "For as he thinks within himself, so he is."   Our thoughts are so important as we seek to walk with the Lord and fulfill His purposes in our lives. It is key to living a victorious life in Christ!

John 8:32 says, "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."  Our actions are a direct result of our thoughts.  So many of the problems women face are a direct result of their thought life.  Instead of allowing God's truth to rule their minds, they allow their emotions, their circumstances, what others say, or what our culture presents as their truth.  Since the beginning of time, Satan has caused us to doubt what God says and placed lies within our thoughts.

If we don't intentionally allow God's word to transform us, we will live defeated lives.  Genuine transformation occurs only as we let Truth sink down into the very core of who we are, changing our thoughts and our behaviors.  This month the women will be challenged to "think about what they're thinking about", to recognize the lies that Satan has deceived them with, and realize that they can experience the freedom Christ came to give us as they "take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ"  (1 Corinthians 10:5).
