Good, Acceptable, and Perfect” is part 5 in the series, “You Can Change Your Life in 40 Days.”
Our thoughts are the bricks by which our beliefs are built. Our beliefs are the foundation on which our whole life stands.
Change your thoughts, and you change your life.
If I had but one prayer to be answered tonight, I would pray that all of my family and friends would know the truth above and walk in it fully as God leads them. I pray that they would truly know that He has good planned for their lives. In fact He is incredibly able to take all of our mistakes, shortcomings, faults, even our sins and use them for our good.
After all, when the world was without form and void, He created it and gave it life.
If you look at the life of Joseph, everything that happened to him turned out for his good. Even the pride and bragging which put him in a pit was the catalyst that took him to Egypt to later become the savior of his family.
In order to change our life from what it is now to what it can be, God asks us one thing: To renew our mind.
Be ye 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
He came that we might have life and have it more abundantly. John 10:10
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. James 1:17 NASB
There is no question that God wants good for us.
There is no question that we have a part to play in what we receive in our lives. When we renew our mind to His good and acceptable and perfect will, our life changes. We put ourselves in position for all of the forces of heaven to bring these good things into our lives. Our beliefs makes the difference in what we receive. It is a law as reliable as the law of gravity. It works for everyone all of the time.
I want to see what God will do with all of the people I know as we renew our minds and let Him turn everything for our good. Can you picture the very best things happening to you and your family today?
The world needs more good, and the world needs to see God changing lives.
We have a part to play. Let’s do it. Let’s think the thoughts that will build the beliefs we want to have so that God can fulfill His perfect will in our lives.
Let’s not stand in His way!
Choose thoughts that will build the life you know He wants for you.
Everything I put my hand to prospers.
I walk in divine health. I pray for others, and they are healed.
God gives me great ideas.
I am closer to God than I have ever been.
The life of God is flowing through me.
I am a blessing to others.
It’s going to be a good day.
As we continue our negativity fast and our positivity feast, be aware of negative thoughts that come to you. Acknowledge that they are negative and let them go on their way. When positive thoughts come, embrace them. Repeat them. Build your belief that good things happen to you.
Have a great day!
