I’ve had it.
I’m completely fed up.
For far too long, the enemy has been trying to keep us distracted. The stories of doom, crisis, debt, and failure are just another one of his tactics. He sets up schemes and scenarios to generate fear and worry and doubt all in an effort to keep us distracted—to play us like fiddles—so we take our eyes off of the truth, and we never get to the destiny God has for us.
I’m not putting up with it anymore, and neither should you.
Because I know God wants more for you, and I know He is the God of answers.
But too many people are feeding themselves on the dark, ugly lies of the world instead of on truth and what God wants for them.
What have you been feeding on?
Take a minute to really think about what you’ve been thinking about. (No, that’s not a typo.)
Think about what you’ve been thinking about. Does it line up with the Word of God? Are you thinking right thoughts? Are you replacing negative thoughts? Are you choosing what you’re thinking about, or are you just coasting along with, coping with, or enduring whatever thoughts pop into your head?
Coasting means to move easily without using power; to act or make progress without making much effort.
Coasting can be great. Sometimes you want to just coast along.
On a bicycle or in a sailboat.
But not IN LIFE.
I compare life to flying; I’m a pilot; I can’t help it.
When a pilot is taking off down the runway in a prop plane, the propeller is turning with a lot of torque, or force. The more power you add to that propeller, the more the torque will pull the plane to the left. That pull is called “The P-Factor.”
Now, if the pilot is expecting just to coast, he’s going to get in trouble pretty quickly, because The P-Factor will cause the plane to veer off to the left. In order to avoid that, the pilot has to counter The P-Factor by pressing the right rudder pedal. When I fly prop planes, I know now not to be surprised by The P-Factor. I know I just have to adjust.
It’s the same in life.
But a lot of people don’t want to adjust. They don’t want to add any torque, or energy, or power to their lives. They just want to coast. Their “planes” aren’t getting off the ground. Nothing is changing in their lives. They’re comfortable with just enduring the same circumstances and the same situations.
But there are others who make the adjustment, and those are the stories of real change you hear about. Those are the stories of the people who switched gears, who added energy, who turned off the TV, who took the time, who really invested themselves, and who persevered instead of endured.
In those stories of real change, you’ll almost always find the same scenarios—those people made the decision to change their thoughts.
It really is that simple.
So what about you? Are you ready for real change in your life?
