Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Philippians 4:11 (NLT)
Have you ever met a person who has a victim mentality? They always have to surround themselves with turmoil. They can’t seem to be satisfied until something is wrong and they can go into their victim mode. Worse, some people go around as if they were cursed! How we look at circumstances, what we think about, can make all the difference in the way we live. Pessimism, negativity, fear and doubt can color a bright shiny day into a grey cloudy overcast one. If anyone could be negative, it would be Paul. The church was being persecuted by the Gentiles and many legalistic Christians were spreading false teaching. Meanwhile, Paul himself was writing this letter from prison. Yet as he sat there imprisoned, he wrote about one “final thing.” He told the Philippians brothers and sisters to fix their thoughts on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and worthy of praise. He admonished them to emulate his own life and here is what he promised. He said if we change our thinking, then the God of peace will be with us. Today let the God of all peace minister to your soul. Rebuke negativity and begin to think of those things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and worthy of praise.
Dear God of all peace, forgive me for my fear, doubt and negativity. Help me change my thinking. Help me concentrate on those things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent and worthy of praise. In Jesus’ name.
