“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”
Proverbs 23:7 (KJV)
You can shape your entire life by the thoughts you think; anything that you aspire to be can happen based on your thought life. Proverbs 23:7 says that you become what you think about, your thought life is that powerful. It is one of God’s spiritual laws that governs life on earth as the above proverb proves. You have the ability to program your mind to call things into existence and when you take action it will come to fruition. If you think of confident thoughts, you exude confidence. If you feel courageous, you will act with courage. If you have thoughts of fear, you will appear timid. What you put in your mind’s eye comes into existence by the thoughts you think and the words you speak. Knowing God’s faith filled scriptures and using those scriptures effectively in your daily walk will make profound changes. This is the essence of using your faith to bring things to pass. It is critical to do this if you are to create the life you have imagined, so think on powerful, faith filled thoughts at all times; it is that important.
Another powerful scripture that confirms the power of thought life is, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit”, Proverbs 18:21. What is inside of your heart will come out of your mouth – through the tongue. By thinking and speaking faith filled words, you are speaking about what is in your heart – out of your Spirit.
If you don’t have enough faith in your heart to speak the things you want, you can build up your faith by thinking of and speaking the things desired into existence. The continual act of speaking what you want will allow that thought to sink deep inside of your Spirit and propel you to action. This is what God did to Abraham. God spoke faith into Abraham by “calling those things which do not exist as though they did”, Romans 4:17. God promised to make Abraham a father to many nations. He was childless and past the age of vitality at that time. But, scripture says Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness. Abraham had no doubt, did not waver on God’s promise through unbelief but was fully convinced what He had promised would be done, Romans 4:20-21. His faith propelled him into his destiny. It was based on a word, a thought and a promise. God provides faith filled words along with biblical promises but it is up to you to think on such things and to take action.
Your thought life is your faith life; your faith and thoughts go together. Faith can be developed by quoting faith filled scriptures and by declaring/calling those things which are not as though they were. When you do that, you are acting as God acted as His spoken word brought the world into existence. Be imitators of the Lord and call things into existence. Picture continually what you want to happen in your mind’s eye and it will happen through belief and action.
