The manner in which we think is so important. sometimes it can be easy to get trapped n those old patterns of thinking even when we know the truth. Satan also knows the times when we are weak. Sometimes when things happen such as expectations not being met, disappointments, hardship, or tragic circumstances, it can be easier to be tempted to believe a lie rather than the truth.
And while the temptation may be great to believe the lie, we MUST remember that believing a lie will put us in bondage but believing the TRUTH that God has said will bring us to freedom--every time. We can't always change what happens in our circumstances, but we CAN choose how we will react and what we are going to believe about God, ourselves, and others in the situation.
The way we think is very important.
Life is not about getting what we want--infact it isn't even about us.
Life is about those of us who TRUST HIM being transformed to be more like Him--and God can use anything and everything to that end--if we choose to allow Him to do so. That may not always be an easy process. We must seek to have our minds renewed in Him--and we must remember that HIS TRUTH will prevail.
Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will."
