Positive thinking is not wishful thinking or daydreaming – it is a way of thinking that activates a way of acting, which eventually determines the reality of a man.
From our opening text, the word ‘thinketh’ in Hebrew means to calculate, reckon or estimate. In other words, the opening text can be read thus: as a man calculates or estimates in his mind, so is he.
So, when we entertain positive thoughts, we are conditioning ourselves to work out and experience positive things. The purpose of positive thinking, therefore, is to create the necessary energy and motivation to carry on and to keep doing what is required for success. Such is the power of our thoughts.
This is why the Bible teaches us to focus our thoughts on things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, and worthy of praise (Phil. 4:8). That way, we can condition our minds to work out and experience those things.
Therefore, make up your mind to choose and dwell only on positive thoughts, no matter how gloomy your situation may seem. Meditate on the promises of God, and refuse to retain thoughts of defeat or inferiority. This is a vital key for transforming your life.
