Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
How You Think
How you think affects every area of your life. If you allow negative thoughts to fill your mind, you become a negative person. If you fill your mind with positive thoughts, you become a positive person. This promise invites you to focus your mind on the good and positive things in life.
Paul encourages us to think about the positive.
A Negative World
Our world is filled with negative messages and media. Every day you are bombarded with negativity. If you aren’t careful, just listening to or watching the news can convince you that the world is falling apart around you. So many people live in fear and worry because they focus their attention on the wrong things.
Set Your Mind
You have a choice on where you set your mind. You can set your mind on the negative or on the good things God brings into your life. You can be anxious or turn everything over to the Lord. You can spend your time worrying or trusting that your Heavenly Father will take care of you.
Now, I’m not just talking about positive thinking. I am talking about focusing on the Lord Jesus. He is the One who is true, honorable, just, pure, and lovely.
Faith or Fear
Your faith will grow as you set your mind on the Lord’s goodness and His promises. You weaken your faith by allowing fear, worry, and negative thinking to fill your mind. Faith and fear cannot exist in your mind at the same time.
God is empowering you today to positively influence your family, your career, and the world around you. Be the positive influence that points people to the goodness of God.
Look at that promise again.
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things. – Philippians 4:8
Make this confession.
Today, I set my mind on the goodness of God.
I refuse to be negative, fearful, or worrisome.
I am a positive influence in the world around me.
The blessings of God are pouring over me today.
In Jesus Name,
Today, choose to focus your thoughts on the good things of God. When negative thoughts enter your mind, refocus them on the goodness of God.
I just want to say thank you to all our ministry partners and those who support The Daily Promise. You are such a blessing to me and this ministry. Thank you for helping me share the promises of God around the world.
