Thinking Great Thoughts

by Chris D'Amico

God has amazing things ahead for the Body of Christ as we pursue Him and all that pertains to kingdom business. I believe He is preparing great encounters with Him and wonderful opportunities to go to the next level.

Philippians 4:8 declares, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, THINK ON THESE THINGS.Ф The Johnson’s translation declares, “…these should dominate your thinking.” The Streets translation declares. “…ThatТs where your head belongs.

As we contemplate great thoughts from the Word of God, we set our mind in the direction of great possibilities. When those possibilities are set in motion, great things can be accomplished for the Lord. William James once said. “The greatest discovery of my generation is that man can alter his life simply by altering his attitude of mind.” Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Great men are they who see that the spiritual is stronger than any material force, that thoughts rule the world.” Norman Vincent Peale once said, “Change your thoughts and you change your world.

Proverbs 23:7 declares, “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he…Ф If our thoughts determine who we are and where we are going, then we must be determine to think great thoughts from the word of God. NFL quarterback Ron Jaworski once said, “Positive thinking is the key to success in business, education, pro football, anything that you can mention. I go out there thinking that I am going to complete every pass.” We must determine to fix our minds only on the great possibilities of achievement in 2008. Samuel Johnson once said, УWe must clear our mind of Сcan’t.ТФ 

We are so thankful to God for you and we are believing God for His highest in 2008. I want to encourage you to keep your mind renewed, refreshed and saturated in the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is our Guide into all truth, which leads to blessing. Your steps are ordered of God and you are highly favored of the Lord. Think bigger, talk bigger and reach for the harvest field of souls around you and impact your world. Your best days are right in front of you!
