… allowing in?
A good man out of the good treasure
of his heart brings forth good things,
and an evil man out of the evil treasure
brings forth evil things.
Matt 12 35
Where does this ‘good treasure’ or
… this evil treasure come from?
Quite simply, from what you allow into your life,
… from what you expose yourself to!
If you are exposing yourself to all the negative in the world,
that seed is going to grow and bring forth a negative harvest,
… a harvest of doubt, fear, helplessness and even death!
On the other hand, If you expose yourself to God’s Word,
that word seed is going to grow and produce a harvest,
… a harvest of hope, faith, success and life!
So… what are you allowing into your life?
Of course we are living in this world,
… and of course negative thoughts and reports come,
but what are you doing about them or with them?
Because what happens to those thoughts
… is up to you, no one else.
In the Bible we read that we should…
cast down arguments and every high thing
that exalts itself against the knowledge of God,
bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
2 Cor 10 5
Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts,
… and so developing an evil treasure in your heart,
find out what God’s Word says about that situation.
Then, act or do what God says to do,
… and you will have a good treasure in your heart,
a treasure that will bring forth GOOD things!
