Think Like You Are Already There

Daily Devotional

To get to the future that you want to see you must redirect your thoughts to thinking like you are already there.

Proverbs 23:7 says “for as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.”  There are two concepts that the scripture teaches. First is that you are a product of your thoughts. Notice that the scripture never said as a man thinketh, so he will become, it says “so is he ”. Right now you are what you think repeatedly, even though the  outward manifestation will not occur at the same time. The best way to understand this is to use an analogy of a baby.  A baby’s existence does not start at the point when he/she starts to show in the mother’s womb, it starts with conception.  Likewise, your future begins when it is conceived  in your mind, not when it becomes visible to others.

The second  principle is that you cannot attract a future that is different from the present.  You can’t keep thinking that you are sick and expect a different future to manifest. Similarly, you cannot think that you have a lack and attract a future of abundance.  As a man thinketh so is he. What you are thinking repeatedly is what you will produce. A failure to understand this principle has been the downfall of so many of us.  We want a particular future but think like what our current circumstance is saying now. If you keep doing that your life will be a continuous replay of the past – going around in circles.

It is time to break the cycle. The only way to do that is to redirect your thoughts to continuously think about the future you want to see. That should drive you to prepare for that future and start doing some of those things that you have planned to be part of the future.

Life Application:  Redirect your mind to continuously think and do the future you want to see. 

Prayer: Lord, help me to be deliberate in thinking positively. I commit my thoughts to you right now in Jesus name, amen.
