Stop Thinking And Let God


Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
Philippians 4:8

How often do we think we can think our way out of something?  We fret and worry and think about a situation every which way.  We gnaw on it like a dog on a bone.  We get all wound up in our situation that we become unable to do anything.

This is not what the Lord wants our thoughts to be on though.  He wants us to give things over to Him and then think on things that are good.  This is hard sometimes.  Especially when you are stressed over things.  I know for me this is true.

So how can you concentrate on good things?  I have found starting the day with God is a good start!  Pray for good, read His word, and ask Him to help you.  God wants us to think on good for several reasons.

One when we think of the good, we are not focused on the negative that life throws at us.  Two, we don't get depressed as easily.  Three, it is healthy for us to look at the good in life.  Four, we have a better outlook on life.  And five, we become thankful for what we have.

If we stop thinking so much and let God, it allows for the miracles to happen.  We just have to do the ordinary things in life and let God take care of the rest.  So what do you need to stop thinking about, give to God, and then just do the ordinary?
