THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
INSTEAD OF STAYING ON THE NEGATIVE CHANNEL, WHY NOT TRY SWITCHING OVER TO THE VICTORY CHANNEL
It’s interesting that our mind, will naturally gravitate toward the negative. A study showed how positive and negative memories are handled by different parts of the brain. A negative memory takes up more space. There’s more to process. Because of this, we will remember the negative more than the positive. For example, a person will remember losing $50 more than they will remember gaining $50.
Knowing this, we have to be PROACTIVE with our thoughts. When the negative memories come back to the movie screen of our mind, many people pull up a chair, get some popcorn and watch them all over again…..and again! No, the point is, that’s not the only channel! There’s another movie playing on a channel that’s filled with your ACCOMPLISHMENTS and SUCCESSES.
Instead of staying on that negative channel, you’ve got to switch over to your VICTORY channel. You’re not going to move forward into the NEW things God has in store, if you’re always replaying the negative things that have happened to you. Instead, learn to change the channel. Meditate on VICTORY and move forward in the victory and BLESSING God has in store for you!
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
