Fight Yourself

Proverbs 4:23
Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.

In our journey towards success, whatever that means to each of us, many times our greatest opponent is ourselves, our thoughts. In trying to elevate we can sometimes find ourselves questioning why we think we are good enough to reach the top and be a boss at whatever our God given niche is. It becomes a fight where we literally have to overcome those thoughts with good thoughts. 

Many times throughout this week I have had to combat thoughts of self denial. I have had to tell myself to keep going because there is in fact a prize at the end of all of the hard work.I just want to encourage us to guard the thoughts we harbor in our hearts. Guard it because as the word says out of those thoughts our lives are shaped. We are prompted to act based on what we think about ourselves. God thinks great things for us, so we indeed should do the same. No, you are not conceited or "big headed" if you think you will accomplish great things. With big thoughts you are simply aligning your mind with the mind of God towards you. 

Even with our wildest dreams and biggest desires we cannot out think Gods plans. Don't believe it? Then believe the word, Ephesians 3:20 "Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly. abundantly more than we could ask or think, according to the power that works in us". Tell yourself today, "I will become my greatest self through Christ". Tell yourself again...and then again until you believe it with all your heart and until when those thoughts come you have the strength to dismiss them because you now believe God more than you believe yourself and the enemy.

Be Blessed beautiful people
