Change

Change
 
The phrase, “I need to make a change” often entails emotional, mental or physical changes. Regardless of what area of change is wanted or needed, change in our lives REQUIRE new thinking.

The battle to change any {known or perceived} defects in our life is always a mental struggle. The battle starts in the mind, and it’s won or lost in the mind. Whatever area of change you need or want to make will not occur until your thoughts and attitude change.

It is vitally important to incorporate daily quiet time, and to intentionally study God’s Word to learn how to renew your mind so that you will be equipped to have the power to change. The theological term for “changed mind” is repentance. To repent literally means to change your mind.

When you decide to make a change, you’re also deciding to learn to think in new ways about any defects you have. I learned over time through prayer and the guidance of The Holy Spirt that my {God given} defects are my strengths being misused. My defects were being misused because my thoughts about my defects were negative and not viewed the way Christ views them. Do you have defects that are being misused? If so, are you willing to change your view of them?

Any “defect” we feel we have can be used to God’s glory, if we change our mindset about the defect. Oftentimes we {I} get upset about something in my life and say to myself, “I need to do something different” But what usually happens? Defect sometimes equals defeat thus no action towards change. Why??? Your mind has yet to embrace the new thinking about change.

Choosing to think differently about change will become easier the more you fill your mind with the Word of God. When you’re looking at your defects, ask yourself how would Jesus think about this? How can God get the glory?

A simple function used by most computer users is CTRL + ALT+ DEL. These are a combination of keys on the computer keyboard pressed at the same time to terminate an application task or to reboot the system. Ahhhh!!!! What if we used CTRL + ALT + DEL to terminate the negative application of how we view our defects and reboot our thinking!

CTRL + ALT + DEL
Control yourself= James 1:19-20--Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; 20 for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.
 
Alter your thinking=Romans 12:2-- Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
 
Delete negativity=Psalms 94:19--When the cares of my heart are many, your consolations cheer my soul.
 
PEARLStoPONDER: Are your defects being misused? If so, CTRL + ALT + DEL.

Philippians 2:5--Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Proverbs 3:5--Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

1 Corinthians 2:16-- For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? but we have the mind of Christ.

Good Morning. This message is confirmation for me. I am so excited about my new (changed) steps in my Christian walk. I chose to focus on the positive things despite what negative things may come at me. Our reaction to things shows our strength and growth. So thank you for such an amazing message. May God continue to bless and use you to encourage us. Chelsie

What a remarkable analogy! I am one to think negatively to me defects, and some days it is just a draining process. Especially when the enemy is in the midst of that negativity. Today I will consciously pay attention to those negative thoughts and redirect. Thank you
