Fresh Hope – 14th August 2017

In Isaiah 55 vs 8&9, it tells me this: “God’s ways are higher than mine and His thoughts are higher than mine.”
Which means there must be a higher way of thinking than how I usually think and a higher way of doing things than how I usually do them.

The longer that I’ve been a Christian, the more I realise that where I am today in my life is actually up to me.
Thinking makes up a large part of your life.

“As a man thinks, so he is.” – Proverbs 23 v 7

“You are what you think” is a popular quote.
God’s thinking is higher and He wants yours to be too.
Start to understand that there is a higher way for you to reach for, believe for, attain to and experience.

You may not feel that you are reaching for higher things, because your life is way down low at the moment and it seems too hard to get anywhere higher. One small thought can make a BIG difference. Start to declare positive things over your life, even if you can’t see it happening right now. Start thinking and saying “It will and can be different.”

God doesn’t control our thinking – we all have free will, so choose to think differently today. And when you do, your life will start to change also.

You may be faced with a sick child, a huge bill you can’t pay, a difficult person in your life, no hope of a job, a problem you can’t seem to solve. Don’t think how you used to, how you always have, but think bigger and differently today.

Change your mind and change your life.
