Thought for Today - THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS - Part 1


 

Pastor Linda's "Thought for Today" 
THE POWER OF YOUR WORDS - Part 1

How powerful are your word? To understand we must see where and how WORDS are used by God.

Genesis 1:1  NKJV - In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

How did He create everything?

HE SPOKE IT INTO EXISTANCE!

Genesis 1:3 Then God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light.

Colossians 1:16 NKJV -
For by Him (Jesus) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.

John 1:1-3 NKJV -
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

Your WORDS are CREATING YOUR WORLD!

Proverbs 18:21 NKJV -
21 Death and life [are] in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.

You are eating the FRUIT of YOUR WORDS!
There is POWER in your words!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - DO YOU WANT TO PROVE THE PERFECT WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE?


Thought for Today:

Want to PROVE God's perfect will for your life?

Rom 12:1-2 NKJV

1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, [which is] your reasonable service.

2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what [is] that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

How to renew your mind:
#1  Ask Jesus to be Your Lord
#2. Ask Jesus to fill you with His Spirit.
#3. Ask the Holy Spirit to teach you.
#4  Read the Word of God - the Bible.

A good place to start is in the Gospel of John. Then, read Ephesians. (Blueletterbible.org or download the app. Easy to use for Bible reading or listening.)

#5 Find Scripture promises for things you need help with.

E.G. Renewing the mind, healing, etc. Use Blue Letter
Bible www.Blueletterbible.org and type in a word such
as heal* with * to find all Scriptures that are on that topic.


#6 Read, memorize, listen and speak out loud those Scriptures night
and day - until you see the victory!


I overcame depression, fear, worry, and a host of other things by renewing my mind and speaking God's Word out loud!

Thought for Today - What Should I Think About to OVERCOME life's problems?


Thought for Today - What Should I Think About to OVERCOME life's problems?

If you want to be an OVERCOMER - and be able to deal
with life successfully - with a good outcome -
you have to control your thought life!

God's Word tells us exactly what to THINK ABOUT -
if it doesn't line up with these guidelines -
then get rid of the thought - cast it down like
2 Corinthians 10:4-5 tells us and to bring every
thought CAPTIVE to the obedience of Christ.

Here's what to THINK:

Philippians 4:8 NKJV

Finally, brethren,
whatever things are true,
whatever things [are] noble,
whatever things [are] just,
whatever things [are] pure,
whatever things [are] lovely,
whatever things [are] of good report,
if [there is] any virtue and
if [there is] anything praiseworthy--
meditate on these things.

Your thoughts need to line up with all the above -
that's IF you want to be an overcomer in life! 

I overcame depression many years ago, and it was
through this Scripture and 2 Cor. 10:4-5 that I
used daily to think on to get the victory!

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - DO YOU WANT TO HAVE PEACE OF MIND?



Thought for Today - Want Peace of Mind? Got to Get Rid of Those Bad Thoughts!

To live a life freedom from fear and torment - you have to control your thought life! If you want PEACE - you've got to get the PRINCE of PEACE into your life and THINK THOUGHTS about HIM and HIS WORD! You'll have POWER to live a life free from fear and it's torment!

2Co 10:4-5 NKJV
4 For the weapons of our warfare [are] not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,

5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - WANT TO HAVE GOOD SUCCESS?


Thought for Today - Want to Have Good Success?
Get to know the Lord - Meditate on His Word day and night.

Joshua 1:8 NKJV
"This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Why does God say that we can "make our way prosperous and have good success" if we meditate on the Word of God day and night?
 
#1 Reason:

Because as we think about the Lord and His Word - We get to know Him more and His Spirit teaches us how to observe to do it. When we do what He says we will make the right choices.

Right choices = success in life!

Here's another example of delighting in the Lord and His Word:

Psa 112:1-3 NKJV
Praise the LORD! Blessed [is] the man [who] fears the LORD, [Who] delights greatly in His commandments.

His descendants will be mighty on earth; The generation of the upright will be blessed.

Wealth and riches [will be] in his house, And his righteousness endures forever.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY - DID YOU KNOW YOUR LIFE IS A RESULT OF YOUR THOUGHT LIFE?



Thought for Today - As A Man Thinketh in His Heart So Is He.

Are you tired of living a defeated life?
How do you see yourself? The Bible says that
As you THINK about YOURSELF - so YOU ARE!

Pro 23:7 KJV For as he thinketh in his heart,
so [is] he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee;
but his heart [is] not with thee.

If you want to have different results (fruit) in your life -
there has to be different thoughts about yourself.

This week I will be focusing on our THOUGHT LIFE!

Thought of the Day - Why Worry when You can REST and TRUST?




Thought of the Day - Why Worry when You can REST and
TRUST in the Lord and in His presence?

He doesn't want us to stress and worry -
the Lord wants us to rest and trust. In quietness
and trust is our salvation - our strength and victory!

Watch the video below for the complete word
the Lord gave me this morning!

[Isa 30:15 NIV] This is what the Sovereign LORD,
the Holy One of Israel, says: "In repentance and
rest is your salvation, in quietness and trust is your
strength.....

Thought of the Day - Why should You Listen to God? What are the Benefits?




Thought for Today:

Part 4 - WISDOM

What are the results of despising God's discipline, guidance
and His Word?

Proverbs 1:

30 Since they would not accept my advice and spurned my rebuke,

31 they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the
fruit of their schemes.

32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the
complacency of fools will destroy them;

What are the advantages to listening to God,
obeying Him when He speaks and desiring His wisdom and knowledge?

Proverbs 1:
23 Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my
thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings.

33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety
and be at ease, without fear of harm.

I would rather have the Lord making His ways known to me and living in safety,
then living in fear. I love resting in and trusting Him because He is my Creator. 
He's my Savior and Lord. His Spirit teaches me. He guides and directs my life.
He'll do that for you too!

Thought for Today - Wisdom - Why should we desire it? By Pastor Linda Cross


Thought for Today:

Why should we desire wisdom?
Why is it crying out in the streets?
What can happen if we don't have it?

Proverbs 1:8-19 NIV - 

8 Listen, my son, to your father's instruction and 
do not forsake your mother's teaching. 

9 They are a garland to grace your head and a 
chain to adorn your neck. 

10 My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them. 

11 If they say, "Come along with us; let's lie in 
wait for innocent blood, let's ambush some harmless soul; 

12 let's swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole,
 like those who go down to the pit; 

13 we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill 
our houses with plunder; 

14 cast lots with us; we will all share the loot"-- 

15 my son, do not go along with them, 
do not set foot on their paths; 

16 for their feet rush into evil, they are 
swift to shed blood. 

17 How useless to spread a net where 
every bird can see it! 

18 These men lie in wait for their own blood; 
they ambush only themselves! 

19 Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; 
it takes away the life of those who get it.

RESTING and TRUSTING - Thought for Today by Pastor Linda


'
I've missed a few days doing the "Thought for Today"
because my phone crashed and had to get a new one.
I create the "Thought for Today" on my phone. Praying
they come out with the new Samsung Notes soon! :)

I also had a CFC Women's Retreat this past weekend which
God did AWESOME things in and through the women.
The Lord is so good and it's so good to have fellowship
with other women of God. Nothing else like it in the world! 















I'm starting a webinar/video/audio conference call for women.
If you'd like to be a part of it. Please let me know.
Email me at linda.cross.mn@gmail.com

Today's thought is about RESTING and TRUSTING the Lord.

First, you have to come to the Lord or return if you've
gone away from Him. Then, learn to rest and trust Him.
He's able to take care of you. In quietness and trust -
that's where you'll find your strength. Notice He said
YOUR strength. In resting and trusting the Lord -
not striving - that's where you'll find your strength.

[Isa 30:15 RSV] 15 For thus said the Lord GOD,
the Holy One of Israel, "In returning and rest you
shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be
your strength."
