When it comes to God and His Word, thinking the worst about ourselves seems to be the norm. When God thinks of us, He only thinks the best thoughts towards us: thoughts of hope and to prosper us. All that He requires of us is obedience, sacrifice and a willing attitude. Whether we give it to Him or not, God is still thinking good thought about us. God’s not your enemy, He’s your friend. We shouldn’t think more highly of ourselves than we ought, but we shouldn’t think less of ourselves, either. Our thoughts determine our actions and influence our decisions. If we think the right way, we tend to make better decisions. When we don’t, we settle for less and make excuses. Wrong thinking produces thought that sound like, “This is all I deserve; I can’t do any better.” We limit ourselves and our future when we think this way. My encouragement is to shoot for the stars. If you land on the moon, you would’ve still done well. Be willing to make the hard choices and do what it takes to receive God’s best. Have a great week!!
