THE MOST POSITIVE FORCE IN THE UNIVERSE
The most positive force in the universe is God's love.
The most powerful force in the universe is God's love.
The most important fact in the universe is that God loves and accepts you the way you are, but He loves you too much to let you stay that way.
Your mind is the door through which the power of God's love gets into your life.
When God's love enters your heart and mind, it makes you into a new person. Old things pass away, and all things become new.
God gave you a mind, and He expects you to fill it with good things.
When your mind is full of thoughts consistent with his love, your thoughts are healthy and your mind is exactly the way God means for it to be.
When your heart is full of emotions consistent with his love, your emotions are healthy, and your heart is exactly the way God means for it to be.
WHY POSITIVE THINKING WORKS
Positive thinking is the natural software for your mind.
God designed a positive software package that would permit your mind to function at full capacity and maximum efficiency. He created your mind to work best with a Positive Operating System.
Negative thinking doesn't work well, because your mind was not designed to function with a negative operating system.
Although your mind is an awesome biocomputer, it will not function well using the wrong software.
Severely depressed people run a negative operating system most of the time, and they illustrate how bad things can get when negative thinking takes control.
Positive thinking truly is the right type of thinking.
Positive thinking is more than a good idea. It's the way your mind was designed to work.
INSTALL A POSITIVE OPERATING SYSTEM IN YOUR MIND
When God created your mind, He designed it to run most efficiently using a Positive Operating System.
He made a software package called POS Version 1.0.
POS stands for Positive Operating System.
Version 1.0 means there is only one version. No updates are necessary, and no revisions are required.
POS Version 1.0 is the optimum operating system for your mind.
You use the power of repetition to install a Positive Operating System.
You repeat positive thoughts until they become engrained in your mind.
You overwhelm your mind with positive inputs until positive programs start running there.
If you think enough positive thoughts, your mind gradually shifts over to a Positive Operating System.
Two thousand years ago, the Apostle Paul said, “Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, whatever is excellent, or worthy of praise, think on these things.” This was Paul’s method of installing POS Version 1.0.
What worked for Paul will also work for you.
You can install a Positive Operating System by putting positive things into your mind.
God has given you all the tools you need to have a positive mind.
People complain it's difficult to live as a positive person in a negative world. They talk as if the odds are stacked against them. They should accept their miserable existence and learn to live with a negative mind.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
God gave you the power of repetition to install a Positive Operating System.
If you consistently and persistently repeat positive thoughts, it is absolutely inevitable that your mind will fill up with positive things, and before long, your mind will start repeating those same positive thoughts back to you.
CHECK OUT YOUR INNER DIALOGUE
Listen to your inner dialogue. Is it positive or negative?
If your mind still repeats negative thoughts, the job is not done.
When the inner voice changes from negative to positive, it's time to celebrate, because you now have a Positive Operating System up and running in your mind.
But don't stop using positive repetition when your inner dialogue turns positive. You're just getting started.
There's no limit to how good your life can become if you continue putting positive things into your mind.
God gave you an awesome mind, and He expects you to fill it with good things.
Repeat the following affirmations until your mind repeats them back to you.
God loves and accepts me the way I am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. God's love carries away my burden of guilt. His love not only wipes the slate clean, it throws the slate away.
There is nothing I can do to earn God's love or make him love me more. He already loves me from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, and it doesn't get any better than that. There is no limit to how good my life can become when I open my heart and mind to the power of his love.
I need to change my mind about many things. When I look at my failures, I need to change my mind. When I look at my limitations, I need to change my mind. When I look at the past, I need to change my mind. When I look at the present, I need to change my mind. When I look at the future, I need to change my mind. I can change anything I want in my life by simply changing my mind.
Change happens when I think differently than I have always thought and act differently than I have always acted. I think and act my new life into existence.
Repeat these words until your mind repeats them back to you and discover the miraculous power of positive repetition.
THINKING AS GOD THINKS
In Matthew 16:23 Jesus said, “You are a stumbling block to me. You think as men think, not as God thinks."
Jesus said that when we think like men, we stumble.
How we think and what we think is important.
Wrong thinking trips us up.
We need a new way of thinking; we need to think as God thinks.
When you get in agreement with God, then you are thinking the way God thinks.
You need to understand how God thinks so that you can get in agreement with him.
God is the God of the possible.
Impossible is not found in his vocabulary, and impossibility doesn’t exist in his universe.
Everything is possible when you think the way God thinks.
God is the source of all good things.
All that you are or have comes directly or indirectly from him.
There are no shortages in God’s kingdom of love.
Everything you need to live an abundant life is already present and available for those who think as God thinks.
HOW DOES GOD THINK?
God thinks abundance. Jesus said he had come so you might have life and have it more abundantly. God created the world and everything in it. What you need is no big deal to God. Supplying your needs won’t break his bank or bankrupt his kingdom. God enjoys giving you good things. His plan is to fill your cup with blessings until it runs over, and then fill it some more.
God thinks possibility. All things are possible when you think the way God thinks. God is the God of possibility, and there is no limit to how good your life can become when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks positive. The most positive force in the universe is God’s love. It changes the way you think and feel making you into a positive person.
God thinks positive expectations. When you get into agreement with God, your expectations change. Impossible becomes possible, and scarcity becomes abundance. God has a powerful positive plan for your life. God expects good things to happen when you think the way He thinks.
God thinks forgiveness. God forgives you for the wrong things you have done. He not only wipes the slate clean, He also throws the slate away.
God thinks freedom for the captives. Jesus came to set the prisoners free. The chains of lack and limitation fall off when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks release from oppression. Jesus came to liberate you from all forms of oppression. Economic, spiritual, chemical, and psychological dependencies disappear when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks recovery of what has been lost. The blind receive their sight. What the world destroys and takes away, God recovers and restores.
God thinks favor. He bestows his blessings on all who get in agreement with him. He opens the windows of heaven, and blessings fall all around.
God thinks good news. God has no dark side. He is on our side and is in it with us for the long haul. All of God’s thoughts are good news. When you become silent and listen for God’s voice, you hear his positive message of love.
You can trust God.
If you do your part, God will do his.
When you get in agreement with him, when you think the way He thinks, then God starts working miracles in your life.
God already knows what you need even before you ask.
God wants to give you good things even more than you want to receive them.
But first you must ask, and you must ask expectantly.
You don't get what you want. You get what you expect.
When you ask, you must ask expectantly.
Jesus said, “Ask and you will receive.”
Asking simply recognizes that God is the source of all good things, and He can be trusted to provide.
Outsourcing doesn’t exist in God’s kingdom of love.
All of us need to be reminded that God is our source.
God will give you what you need unless you put handcuffs on him and prevent him from working in your life.
There are no shortages in God’s kingdom.
God is a God of abundance, and when you get in agreement with him, when you trust him to supply your needs, and when you have positive expectations, then the windows of heaven open and blessings fall all around.
Christian Positive Thinking is not just a mental make over. It's a whole new way of thinking and feeing. It's an entirely new way of life.
