Where did the automobile, the International Space Station, or the airliner I flew on today come from? The answers is a thought. Napolian Hill says in his book Think and grow Rich, “Thoughts are things.” Some would say that is humanistic. I say no, this is scriptural: Proverbs 23:7 King James Version (KJV) “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…”
What we think about we bring about
Have you ever been around someone who seems to attract bad luck? Seems like bad things are attracted to them in every aspect of life. Listening to this kind of person most often reveals in fact their thinking and language is in fact “attracting trouble” into their life. We tend to become what we think about all day long.
If we think about debt, we tend to attract bills and debt. If we think about sickness and poor health, we tend to get what we are speaking into our lives. On the other hand, as Proverbs 23:7 teaches, if we focus on good health, wealth, joy and a successful destination, life is very predictable and tends to give what we expect.
Make your thoughts Things
God made us in His own image. God is the Master Creator. He made us like Him. We are to be Creators of good things for our families and this world. Most people have enough brilliant thoughts in a day to change their and many other lives. I keep a notebook with me to capture my brilliant thoughts. At the end of the day, I take my thoughts and sort them out to see which ones pass the test of time. The good one’s become projects. Some of my thoughts have become businesses that generated hundreds of millions in sales. One became Elijah’s Harbor Christian Retreat. What great gems are waiting in your mind?
Elijah’s Harbor helps our guest expect and receive the best for the future. We believe The Next Five Years are the Best Five Years. We fully expect our guest can have the Best Five years as the Next Five in Health, Relationships, Finances, Business, Church Growth and more. We do not subscribe to the saying “You can’t have your cake and eat it too”. Why would anyone have cake you can’t eat? Of course we can have great things in all our life simultaneously. Health, Relationships, Finances, Leadership, a successful church or business and a successful family do not need to be one or the other.
