Better Thoughts

Part 2 - God Knows What's Best For Me

What we believe impacts the decisions we make.

The decisions we make determine the outcomes of our life.

Our frustrations are with the outcomes.

We think to change the outcome, we change the decision. But if changing the decision does not start with changing what you believe, you'll wind up back at the same outcome.

Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think.  

Romans 12:2

Everybody admits they've made some dumb decisions in life. And, at the time, you thought it was the right decision. This just proves the universal truth that "I don't always know what's best for me." But most of us hold on to the belief that "I know what's best for me." So here's the better thought...

I don't always know what's best for me but God always knows what's best for me.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Proverbs 3:5-6

The question is this: On what belief do you base all your decisions?

If you want to live a life where your lifestyle is blessed, where your outcomes are straight, you have to start with this better thought...

God knows what’s best for me better than I know what’s best for me. And I will submit my thinking and my reasoning to His truth for my life and stop just following my own heart.

To hear the song we learned on Sunday that reminds us of this better thought...
