SCRIPTURE: Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:23.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When thought changes, action changes, and when action changes, outcome changes.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that life flows out of thought. Life’s issues flow out of thought.
This means, thought quality affects life quality. Anywhere you see a quality man, he is a product of quality thought. The deeper your thought, the brighter your life. Anywhere you see a solid life, it is a product of solid thought.
Now, one of the greatest tragedies of life is the tragedy of thoughtlessness. And thoughtlessness gives birth to aimlessness which ultimately results in uselessness. That means when a person is useless, he is thoughtless; and when a person is thoughtless, he is useless.
It is very important to know that thought is the raw material for results. It is thought that sponsors results in life. The reason why we see different results is because we think differently.
Thoughtlessness equals resultlessness. Why is it that some pass examinations while others fail? It is the quality of their thought.
Your thought is what sponsors your action, and action determines outcome. Everything we do is a function of how we think. Before you stand up from your seat, you must think about it. Before you start fasting and praying, you must think about it. Before you give an offering, you must think about it. Thought is what sponsors action and action is what sponsors outcome. Action determines outcome.
So, if you do not like your action, change your thinking. When thought changes, action changes; and when action changes, outcome changes.
REMEMBER THIS: When thought changes, action changes; and when action changes, outcome changes.
1. Refuse to allow negative thoughts to infiltrate your mind.
2. Always occupy your mind with positive and Scriptural thoughts.
PRAYER: Lord, I reject every negative thought. I receive the grace to always fill my life with positive and Scriptural thoughts, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: People who are given to too much talking are given to too little thinking. Too much talk equals too little thought. A man who talks too much thinks very little. When talk is abundant, thought is shallow. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: 1 Samuel 24-27.
REFLECTION: Kenneth Hagin says, “You may not be able to stop a bird from landing on your head, but you definitely can prevent it from making its nest in your hair”. Similarly, you may not be able to stop a wrong thought from coming into your mind but you can definitely stop it from staying.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: The Power to disciple, discipline and direct your thoughts profitably be released for you now in Jesus’ Name.
