Have you ever paused to consider what God thinks of your predominant thoughts?
That’s kind of important because the more negative, sour-minded, and unsuccessful a person is, the less attention they pay to what kinds of thoughts they have.
Conversely, the more successful a person is, the more carefully they monitor their thoughts to keep them positive.
Now, let me ask you this… Are you aware that God gets angry at people who have a negative mindset?
You can see that this is true for yourself in Deuteronomy 1:34 which says, “And the LORD heard the VOICE of your words, and was WROTH”.
Hmmm….the VOICE of your words…now, isn’t that interesting…
When we back up a few verses to Deuteronomy 1:27, we can read this, “And ye MURMURED in your tents, and said, Because the LORD hated us, he hath brought us forth out of the land of Egypt, to deliver us into the hand of the Amorites, to destroy us.”
The simple truth is, the people in this story were in a situation that THEY PERCEIVED AND INTERPRETED as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable – and they began to think and talk negative about it.
What about you?
How do you start thinking and talking – both in private and in public – when you come face to face with a situation that you perceive and interpret as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable?
Have you not yet learned that when you face something that you perceive and interpret as difficult, unpleasant, and undesirable, it’s because God has custom-built a personal growth plan for you – one that has important lessons and truths that He wants you to gain so that He can better glorify His name through you and bless and prosper you in the process?
That IS what God’s doing, you know.
Remember, watch what you think and say because the VOICE of your thoughts and words matters to God…He prefers you have the positive ones!
