Demolish your problems

new_year_2008010769-1113int-newyearYou have everything you need to demolish your problems. It all starts in your mind. God has given you everything you need to demolish every stronghold, every problem if you are a Christian. 2 Corinthians 10:4 “The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

Fear
Anger
Depression
Shame

All negative thoughts and emotions are a subset of these four. They are the thoughts that bring about problems in your life and cause your glands to secrete toxins into your bloodstream.

Galatians 6:7 says we reap what we sow. If we sow thoughts of fear (worry, anxiety, doubt); anger (frustration, short temper); depression (sadness, hopelessness, boredom, apathy); or shame (guilt, feeling worthless) it will bring that into our lives. If we sow victorious thoughts, it will bring victory into our lives. But it may not happen overnight. In fact we have to persevere for a season. It may take a long time.

Shakespeare said that this world is a stage. He often had spirits, angels or demons in his plays. He was familiar with the spirit world. The world we can see is not the real world. The real world is the spirit world, in which our spirit lives.

Shakespeare also understood the power of faith. “Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt.” – William Shakespeare. He knew that if we don’t believe we can do something, we won’t be able to do it.

When you have negative thoughts you can get rid of them like getting dirty air out of a glass. Instead of concentrating on getting the dirty air out, pour clean water into the glass. In other words, fill your mind with thoughts of love, people you love, places you love and even things you love.

One of the most powerful things to do in order to get rid of negative thoughts is to say this to God
I love you
I’m sorry
Please forgive me
Thank you.

Love is the most powerful force in the universe. Romans 5:5 says that God pours out his love on us. It flows to us like water, the living water you can fill your mind with to flush out the bad stuff. Try saying the four short sentences above to God many times. The more you say it, the stronger you become, the more love you have. The more you will be loved.
