We are Our Thoughts

There is a way to think that is powerful.

The Bible says, ‘As a person thinks, so is he or she’.* Therefore, we are our thoughts.

However, science shows that human beings have an average of 15,000 thoughts per day. Passive thoughts that just come and go. These passive thoughts can become so entrenched that they determine our habits and eventually run our lives. This is not God’s idea.

God’s idea is for us to think actively. To dominate and determine the thoughts we have. To think purposefully. **

In the end, thinking must be active, not passive for us. You must decide how you think. Instead of letting your mind wander from one thought to the other, decide to think rich, think healthy and think like a you have a large inheritance because the Bible says you do.

If you catch yourself thinking passively today, stop and think with intent.

We are our thoughts.

*Proverbs 23:7

**Philippians 4:8
