Mans Thoughts Vs Gods Replies

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he – Proverbs 23:7

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. – Romans 12:2

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ1 Corinthians 10:5

I used to be a very cynical, negative person.  A few years back, I attended 2 bible studies at a church called Mans Thoughts Vs God’s Replies and Never Again.  The courses outlined mans basic thoughts, and what God had to say about them.  As time went by, I began replacing my old, carnal thoughts with Gods thoughts.  This in turn helped me become a more positive person.  I have added over 200 more thoughts and scriptures to this list. What I am going to post here is just the basic scriptures that the class taught.  I also found this to be an excellent way to memorize scripture. The scriptures somehow became more alive to me and they were easy to remember and share with others because I found out that most people had the exact same thoughts I had!

So here they are.  Mans Thoughts Vs Gods Replies.  Let me know if these have helped you in any way. I will post the NEVER AGAIN list tomorrow.

Mans Thoughts Vs. Gods Replies

I can’t do it, it’s impossible!

GOD SAYS: To the believer, all things are possible – Luke 18:27

I give up, I am exhausted!

GOD SAYS: Wait on me, I will renew your strength – Isaiah 40:31

Nobody loves me or ever will!

GOD SAYS: My love for you will last forever – John 31:3

I will never be able to move on!

GOD SAYS: My grace is sufficient for you – II Corinthians 12:9

Help! I don’t know what to do!

GOD SAYS: Trust me, I will direct you – Proverbs 3:5-6

I can’t do this!

GOD SAYS: You can do all things through me – Philippians 4:13

It’s just not worth it!

GOD SAYS: It will be, just keep going – Galatians 6:9

I will never forgive myself!

GOD SAYS: Yes, you can. I have – Ephesians 4:32

I am so scared!

GOD SAYS: I did not give you a spirit of fear… –II Timothy 1:7

I will always be broke!

GOD SAYS: I will supply all of your needs…-Philippians 4:19

I know I can’t handle this!

GOD SAYS: Give your burden to me, I will carry it – Psalm 55:22

If only I had a clue!

GOD SAYS: I will give you wisdom – I Corinthians 1:30

I am all alone!

GOD SAYS: I will never leave you or forsake you – Hebrews 13:5

Those are the scriptures for the basic course.  I am sure you can find many more as I did.  I think I will end this post with a poem by James Allen taken from his book “As A Man Thinketh

As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Today I will think like a dynamic servant of God, because I am what I think.

I am not always what I think I am; I am what I think.

I am not what I eat; I am what I think.

Clothes do not make the man; thinking makes the man.

Therefore I will keep my thought process active and open to the voice of God.

God did not call me to a life of failure, but to a life of success.

This being so, I cannot fail as long as I do His will, allowing Him to work in and through me, motivating my every thought.

Because my God is a big God, I will think with confidence, knowing that my
thoughts can never be bigger than my God.

Today I will think as the apostle Paul thought when he said: “I can do all
things through Christ which strengthen me.” (Phil. 4:13)
