What Do You Think About Yourself?

According to the Bible, one day Christ asked His disciples who people thought He was, and after listening to their answers, He asked them who they themselves thought He was. And Peter answered that, He was the Son of God. I thought Christ was trying to teach His disciples and us that, whatever thought of Him affects the way we think of ourselves and see ourselves.

The thoughts you hold of yourself are powerful tools that shape who you become in life. So I ask you, what do you think about yourself? Do you think well of yourself when you think about your life? Or you are among the many others, who, when considering their lives, see themselves as weak, sick, poor; who think that their lives do not amount to very much and never will; who only see the small and negative side of themselves?

The bible says, “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.” So think good of yourself. I know some of us may consider thinking good of ourselves as an egocentric, self righteous thing, but I don’t think so. I think there is no modesty in thinking low of yourself, especially, considering the fact that we are all created in the image and likeness of God. We were created and certified GOOD by God, and given the mandate to have dominion over all things.

Think good of yourself. Because, “If you would make the most of yourself, never picture yourself as anything different from what you would actually be, the man or woman you long to become.” To paraphrase Apostle Paul in Philippians 4:8, …whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things, when thinking of yourself.

Never let what others may see or say about you bother you, because, “the estimate you have of yourself, the image of yourself which you carry in your mind, will mean infinitely more to you than what other people think of you.” So folks, if you want to live your greatest life, you must start thinking good of yourself!

  1. There is no one in life who is above me, as much as there is no one in life who is below me. Our thoughts create the world around us, they hold so much energy and power that I consider thought as the original sin, for without thought nothing would exist. Thoughts that come with love,come from God, thoughts that come with negativity come from our reactive mind, which is the only real Devil any of us will know.x

    1. Dear Morrow, thanks for sharing your thoughts here. You’re right its tough learning to think differently especially with all the negativity around. But it isn’t impossible to learn to think differently. Remember if you have Christ, you have the mind of Christ in you already. Most times, what works for me, is always saying this little prayer from Psalm 51:10, “Create in me a clean heart O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” it works! God bless you too.
