God Thinking I - In The Beginning 8

"I’m going to expose the reason why things aren’t better in your life.
why things are so hard
why there is so much apathy today
why it is so hard to get from point A to point B
why you have such a hard time getting what you are after

Are you ready.
It’s all about the way you think.

We are going to start God thinking by carefully redefining the way we believe.  In order to be successful and to serve God the way He wants you to, you cannot continue wrong thinking:
  • wrong thinking about God
  • wrong thinking about yourself
  • wrong thinking caused by misinterpretation of God’s truth
  • misappropriation of your time and energy
  • and just plain stubbornness and disobedience
Take a look with me at Proverbs 23:7a., Proverbs 23:7a, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he:...”

This verse has often been used to describe a mind-set, like: If you think you can succeed you can, if you think you are great you can be great, if you think you are no good, you are no good.  In other words, what you think yourself to be, you are.  This is the philosophy of the positive thinking gurus, but not the Word of God.

This verse speaks clearly about the way a man thinks and really has nothing to do with what he thinks himself to be.

This verse would better be understood this way. 
The total sum of man’s thoughts:
both good and evil
right and wrong
thoughtful and discouraging
ugly and beautiful
sinful and righteous - is who he is.

Just the same, who you can be - is determined by how you think now, combined with a new way of thinking, called God thinking. 

It’s all about the way you think."
