WINNING THE WAR IN YOUR MIND- DEFEAT YOUR NEGATIVE THOUGHTS

Pastor Sam  4-25-21

  • The life you have is often a reflection of the thoughts you think. 

For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.   2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NIV

  • cognitive bias: mistake in reasoning based on personal experiences or preferences

  • reframing: creating a different way of looking at a situation or relationship by changing its meaning

  • You can’t control what happens to you.

  • But you can control how you frame it.

Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me really sucks. As a result of the hell I’ve been through, I’m quitting LifeGroup and never going back to church.  Philippians 1:12-13 Whiners Ver. 

 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel. 13As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ. Philippians 1:12-13 NIV

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. Philippians 1:14 NIV

REFRAMING YOUR STORY AND RELATIONSHIPS

1. Thank God for what didn’t happen.

2. Practice pre-framing. 

3. Look for God’s goodness.
