Winning the War In Your Mind Pt. 3 “It’s Time to Reframe”

July 11, 2021

Our lives are always moving in the direction of our strongest thoughts.

Philippians 1:12-14 NIV

Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

Romans 8:28 The Passion Translation

28 So we are convinced that every detail of our lives is continually woven together for good, for we are his lovers who have been called to fulfill his designed purpose.

You can’t control what happens to you. But you can choose how you frame it.

What challenging circumstance in your life are you going through? What is your current perspective about it? Do you need to reframe your circumstances? Look for the good in and around you. Begin to fix your thoughts on how God is working all of these things challenging circumstances for good.
