“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God has come near. Repent and believe the good news!” (Mark 1:15 NIV).
To be receptive to good news, we have to choose to ignore negative news. This requires us to change our thinking techniques to meditate on thoughts that encourage, motivate, plant, and grow God’s energizing thought of wellness prosperities (spirit, soul, and body).
We must deal with our ego-self-thoughts. What is ego-self-thoughts? Thoughts that comes to us within our defeated or contented mind-frame. This thought process tells and remind us that
We cannot accomplish our dreams, desires, or goals.
We should fear stepping out into the unknown.
We are not as good as others.
We are better than the next person.
We need not admit our failures or faults.
We should ignore others input since they are jealous of our accomplishments.
We can do this within our own strength; therefore, we do not need God’s or mankind’s help.
Let us engage in Christlike thinking. How can we do this?
We can submit our thoughts to God’s thoughts.
We can flourish in God’s mercy and grace as we humbly learn from our mistakes.
We can continue to grow in God’s grace, knowing each day bring with it many opportunities to use our Christlike thoughts to glorify God, to enhance our lifestyles, and to serve others.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what [is] that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2 KJV).
