Prov 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…
Prov 4:23 GNB Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.
How often have you heard a speaker ask; "Is the glass half full or half empty?"
How you answer this question reveals your attitude to life, towards yourself and towards God. It reflects the level of your own self-esteem. Those with a healthy self-esteem know who they are in Christ and see themselves as such. They see themselves as valuable and worthwhile, whereas those with a low self-esteem put little value on their opinions and ideas and constantly see themselves as not good enough.
A low self-esteem negatively affects every area of your life; your relationships, your job situation, your income level, your business, your ministry or whatever you're involved in.
However, I have good news for you today! It’s never too late to change your life by changing your thinking. You can raise your self-esteem to a positive and healthy level physically, financially, in your marriage and every other area of life; even if you're now an adult and you have had a self-image problem since childhood.
It's a known fact that you will become what you think about. People who meditate, ponder and examine dark and evil things will eventually go and do something stupid, it's hard to get free from those images once they are embedded in your thinking.
You should change the way you think about your life if you are a negative person.
You are today exactly where your thoughts have brought you to and you will be tomorrow where today's thoughts take you.
Start accepting God’s opinion of you as He says in His Word.
