The practical way to change your life is to change your thoughts. Align your thoughts with God's thought, Change your words. Mathew8:8-9
"8 The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that You should come under my roof. But only speak a word, and my servant will be healed. 9 For I also am a man under authority, having soldiers under me. And I say to this one, Go, and he goes; and to another, Come, and he comes; and to my servant, Do this, and he does"
Talk like God, Speak positive words to move spiritual reality to the physical!
2 Corinthians 3:18 "But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord."
What you see is what you become!
What you see in the word of God is what you will become in the world. The word of God is described as a mirror in which we behold the glory of God and are changed into His image from one level of glory to the other.
Proverbs 23:7 "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he. 'Eat and drink!' he says to you, But his heart is not with you."
One of the reasons why Christians live frustrated lives is because they expect God to transform their lives without them making any input. They see God as a Magician! They expect the picture on the outside to change without first changing the picture on the inside ( mind). Change the picture picture from your inside! It doesn't matter where you started or where you are, what is in you is more important than anything else in the world.
