and our treasure is what will keep our thoughts focused on the important things of God that bring about kingdom living. If your life is a mess then your thinking is probably a mess because you've allowed Satan to use your mind as a dumping ground. When our thinking has been transformed we’re not the same person we used to be. We have different companions, ones who'll encourage us, not entangle us. Our hearts desire is to now be in the world, but not of the world. Our speech conveys God’s grace. It preserves & doesn't destroy. Transformed thoughts replace irrational assumptions that we have to be loved and accepted by those who are most important to us and live up to their expectations or that we have to be perfectly competent and successful in achieving before we can be happy with ourselves or that it's easier to avoid certain difficulties and responsibilities rather than face them because we now know the truth of the Word that says "Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Matthew 5:11,12) or "Such confidence as this is ours through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He made us competent as ministers of a new covenant - not of the letter but of the Spirit, for the letter kills but the Spirit gives life." 2 Corinthians 3:4-6) because truthfully too many of us assume that our wellbeing is based on being loved and accepted by people. We predicate our achievements on our ability and competence alone rather than acknowledging God equips us, energizes us, and enables us to be competent for everything He asks us to be, do and think. It’s time to transform your thinking to transform your life.
