In the eyes of God you are not a failure. He wants all of us to succeed in life. It is very important to guard your thoughts in order to continue to lead a successful life.
We all are eternal beings. We have an eternal spirit, we live in a mortal body, and we have a soul that is made up of mind, will, and emotions. The only doorway for the enemy into your soul is through your mind. Everything starts with a thought. Before you attempt to do anything, you think about it first. Your mind is the doorway to your deeds.
Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” You cannot have a happy life if you have a sad mind. You cannot be what God wants you to be if your mind is continually focusing on your failures. Negative thoughts lead to negative outcomes in every area of our lives. Our mind is what directs us to be the best person we can be. So it is important to guard our thought life. God’s Word says in Isaiah 26:3 ...“You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you: because he trusts in you.” To have perfect peace in your life, your mind must stay focused on God.
When negative thoughts come, we have the power to cast them down. The Bible explains this in 2 Corinthians 10:5, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.”
When you begin to tear down negative thoughts and replace them with God’s thoughts, which are found in His Word, you will see your life turn in a positive direction. Your mind will be renewed and your actions will follow suit, transforming your life!
“And be not conformed to this world: but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” Romans 12:2.
