Check Your Thoughts: Positive Thoughts Lead To Positive Results

“20. And, so, a woman, who was afflicted with an issue of blood for 12 years came up behind Jesus, and touched the hem of his garment: 21. And she said to herself, If I may but touch his robe, I shall be healed.”
(Matthew 9: 20-21)

That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today

When the woman with the issue of blood touched the hem of Jesus’ garment and was made whole, it was not a random attempt, it was what she said within herself. Within herself, she spoke of her result before making an attempt; before hitting her target, she already believed it would be successful. Before she made her attempt, her mindset was positive.

Friend, glean some wisdom: have a positive mindset. Fill your mind with healthy, positive thoughts that will move your forward. Fill your mind with faith and belief that your efforts will bring expected results; believe that your results will be positive; believe that as you aim at your target, you will succeed.

There was a multitude to contend with, but that woman was thinking of her results. Don’t waste your time thinking about roadblocks on your way; don’t spend your time analyzing your challenges; don’t focus on who hates you or who doesn’t want you to succeed. Don’t focus on the negatives.

Focus on your results

Think of when your dreams would have become reality; think of when your prayers would have been answered by God; think of when your greatness would have become reality. Don’t think thoughts that discourage and disempower you.

Philippians 4 vs. 8 says: “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.”

Declare With Me: I choose to fill my mind with productive and profitable thoughts, in Jesus’ name!
