Have you ever felt trapped, bound by constraint? Maybe an addiction, a toxic relationship or a contract that went south. You see we all have situations that seemed a great idea at first, but for whatever reason, became horrid.
This blog is to remind you that you have power and that when you exercise your power to right anything wrong in your life, you are completely free from it. Sometimes, things seem overpowering and too mighty for us to master. However, ‘mind over matter’ is definitely something we need to remember as we have the ability to overcome the nastiest of situations. We can literally transcend our concept of limitations when we challenge those limits, push ourselves and progress with authority.
The David and Goliath story is so empowering, Goliath was a bully, a giant bully who used his advantage of height to torment the Israelite army for 40 days. What’s so funny about this story is that David was just a little boy, but, his beliefs in the Most High God and the confidence he had in God, transcended any fear that gripped the grown soldiers around him. David slew that Giant with just a stone. I would also like to add that it was far more than a stone – David had cultivated a confident trust in God that he would be able to conquer anything with God’s help, he always triumphed without fear.
Opportunities for self improvement are daily – I do believe that our minds can propel us -if we use the enormity of our own self belief. Positive confessions and affirmations can be a fortress for our minds, that can keep negative behaviour from forming habits in our lives by the use of spoken positive words. Words are powerful, you see, our minds are always listening and we can expound our abilities by our very own words. If you have a positive mindset by default you will have a positive life.
As a Christian, I have been able to really act upon this concept because the Bible tells us that we have a sound mind and that is a gift from God. Also, the Bible says we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us. That is such a powerful statement, we can do ALL things not some, not a few, but ALL things through Christ that strengthens us…. what a liberating statement. There is absolutely nothing that you can’t overcome and be free from – keep your thoughts happy and positive.
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.
Phillipians 4:8 KJV
