A reason for everything
Every effect or result in your life has a specific cause. Nothing happens by accident. Your life today is the result of all your previous thinking and it could not be different.
The Bible says that what we plant, we will harvest (Galatians 6:7); but the Bible is not an agricultural textbook! We could link this verse to our mind and personal development and understand that whatever we are reaping today, in any area of our lives, is the result of what we have sown.
If you want to harvest a different crop in the future, you have to sow different thoughts in the present. Your outer world will always be a reflection of what you are thinking in the moment.
Fortunately, we have completely control over what we think. Our mind is like an extraordinary computer, which we can programme to accomplish amazing things. By feeding a steady stream of clean, clear, positive thoughts, wishes, and goals into our minds, we can actually pre-programme or re-programme ourselves to feel and act with confidence and self-control, especially under stress or times of difficulty.
Thoughts are causes, and conditions are effects. This is why we become what we think about most of the time, and this is also why we should “seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God” (Colossians 3:1).
What do you think about most of the time? Positive, happy people think about what they want and how to get it most of the time. Unhappy, negative people think about what they don’t want and who is to blame most of the time.
TASK: From now on you will think about what you want and programme your mind so that you are functioning at your very best and feeling terrific about yourself—most of the time.
