Your Thoughts Lead Your Life
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus. --- Philippians 3:13-14

What you say is not the only thing that you have to keep a mindful watch over. Your thoughts must be guarded as well. Just as the tongue can speak blessings or curses, the mind can think freedom or chains. What you think about yourself and others, what you think about your life experiences, your dreams, your ambitions, and what you think about God cannot be left to stand solely in the flesh. Those thoughts must be channeled through your stance in Jesus Christ! No matter what your physical life presents you, it is your faith towards life that confirms the evidence of the things unseen. If your thoughts about yourself and your life contradict what Jesus says about you, stop immediately and jump off that train! Tear up that ticket and ask the Lord for forgiveness. Take up the Word and refuel your mind with scriptural truth every time your thoughts begin to lead you down a dismal path! When you do this,  your thoughts will grow the wings of an eagle and fly you as far as your faith believes!
