“Whatever we feed grows; whatever we starve dies. In other words, the more we entertain negative, self-defeating, or depressing thoughts, the more abundant those thoughts become, turning into a snow-ball of negativity. But as we meditate on truth found in Scripture, those lies lose their power, and hope and passion for the things of God are given room to grow.”
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” -Philippians 4:8-9
What lies are you holding on to? What self destructive power have those lies been given? How can you begin to focus more on the excellent and praiseworthy, the things He desires, instead of the lies that are hurting you and keeping you from fully being with Him and the peace He has for you?
