Stop Overthinking Things

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2 Corinthians 10:5

How many of you out there are guilty of not being able to decide on things or wondering if you should do such and such or say something to this person or that person due to worry or fear. You may conger up thoughts in your mind or think things that are not even happening or real. Worry that someone thinks something they don't and on it goes. If only we could get out minds under control. 

First and foremost give this stuff to God. Don't allow the enemy to make you nutty over junk and think crazy things. Stay occupied and recognize when you start to slip into this frame of mind and capture it right then and there. Bible teacher Joyce Meyer has a best selling book 'Battlefield of The Mind' and people struggle with this and that is why this area of so crucial to get discipline:. 

Mind your own business first and foremost.  Don't worry about things you can not control. Be Christlike in all manner of thinking and acting. A thought should stay a thought and not a comment to someone, so work on getting that area under control as well. Above all, feed your mind daily on scripture. Pray about areas you need work on. Do a study on the mind of Christ. No go be in control with God's help. 

PRAYER: Lord Jesus help me as I seek to kick out wrong thinking and embrace right thinking. In Jesus' name. Amen.
