It’s not what you think once in a while when you are in church, or have just read a good book, but your predominant mental attitude is what counts. You cannot entertain weak, harmful, negative thoughts ten hours a day and expect to bring about beautiful, strong, and harmonious conditions by ten minutes of strong, positive, creative thought by just listening to a good sermon in church. Emerson simplified it this way, “You become what you think about most all day long.”
Most people are busy thinking, rehearsing and speaking about poverty all day long, and pray for only 5 minutes at night to God to make them become wealth, and wandering why they are praying, fasting and going for over nights but still experiencing poverty and miserable lifestyles; it’s what is predominantly in your mind and heart that’s what counts most to God. You cannot pray I want a car but still thinking of a bicycle.
God has created every person to get rich on this earth and he has also given human a free will to choose a thought that will make him become whatever he chooses to become; and most people are ignorantly choosing misery by thinking things they don’t want, associating with unempowering people, thinking jealous, doubting, fearing, becoming employees, not learning from mistakes, complaining, blaming, envying others etc, and if this is what is predominant in a person’s mind and heart, no matter how much you will pray to God to give you a rich life, that is not going to work; you have to change first your poor attitude of these above if you want your rich thoughts you pray to God to begin to answered. It all begins with you.
The problem is that most Christians don’t know how to pray aka “Lord we don’t want the spirit of the devil to enter this house as we sleep” later that night visited; they pray about things they don’t want to happen to their lives; and that’s what they get most and if that happens they say that’s what God wanted, total ignorance, when in reality it’s their own thoughts. Simplified, were you focus your thoughts, your prayers, that’s what comes to you. I believe you have read the story of Job in the bible.
As a man thinks, so he or she attracts, creates and becomes. Life and death is in the power of the tongue, and what does tongue mean? It means thought. Every time you are thinking, you are communicating to the universe, God; and if you are constantly thinking poor thoughts, that’s what you are saying to God that I want to be poor, poor, poor, and you get what you think about, that’s the universal law. Your thoughts you are thinking now, are your prayers you are sending to the universe that I want this to happen to me.
Remember that you cannot entertain negative, evil, doubtful and envy thoughts for 30 years of your life and expect to change your life to positive, Godly, faithful, and encouraging by just listening to a good sermon in church for 30 minutes in that moment.
Most Christians are busy praying, fasting, and worshiping to God all night and day long to give them miracles to make their lives better while their minds predominantly negative and evil. Many Christians pray to God to change their minds when they are not willing to change themselves. It has to begin with you first, how do you expect God to change your life when you are not ready to change your life? Your thoughts are your real prayers, learn to think constructively. Your thoughts create your experiences and always recall that church is your heart.
