Have you ever noticed that when you think about something you’re troubled with, more thoughts just like it begin to flood your mind?
That’s because your thoughts act like magnets.
It begins with one dominant thought, and as you focus on that thought other thoughts gather themselves to that thought, to where you eventually feel and think it’s getting worse. Over a few minutes the thoughts can overwhelm you till you are totally upset or angry.
The positive side is just as powerful. You dream about something that makes you happy, and the more you think about it the more wonderful and exciting thoughts flood into your mind. This results in you feeling happy and excited.
In both cases the dominant thought attracted other thoughts just like it. This conversation that is taking place inside you is extremely powerful. Those thoughts eventually translate into words and your words will establish or attract that which you have been thinking about, to you.
Jesus says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” Thinking about something on an ongoing and focused manner is called meditation. Your heart is that place deep inside of you where you process your thoughts and emotions. From here arise your feelings of fear or hope. It is in this place that you choose what you think about.
Proverbs 4:23 Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life. (NLT)
Other translations use the words, “for out of it flow the issues of life”. Have you ever had “issues”? I know you do, we all have issues! An “issue” is something that proceeds, or flows, from a source of reverence. It produces the final outcome and establishes a solution to a problem or resolution to a difficulty. The “issues” in your heart are the things you talk to yourself about, positive or negative, and over a process of consideration decisive thoughts are established and your heart then attracts that which you have been meditating on.
This is why so many troubles never seem to come to an end. It is simply because all the heart sees is the problem and then gets to work establishing the problem. The same is true of a dream. If your heart is filled with good thoughts and happy emotions your heart begins to create the reality of the dream for you.
The good news is that you can change your life. You can have blessings, or you can have curses. The choice is yours. God put the power of life and death into the words that proceed from your own heart and you are the only one that determines what goes on inside you. Your thoughts are personal and private, but they speak loud and clear.
Dream big, see good things, be happy, and life (Jesus is the author of life) will bless you abundantly! 😊
