Another thing that keeps me from truly focusing on the things that I know I am called by God to do is what I believe. What I believe can be more powerful that what others believe about me. What I believe can be more powerful than what God says about me because I can not change what I don’t believe needs changing. I will not change what I don’t believe needs to be changed.
That is why I must focus on what I believe if I want to be able to change the trajectory of my future. My thoughts must begin to lineup first with what God says about me. When I believe that He says about me, then I need to focus on what His Word says about my future. When I believe that God has a plan and purpose for my future, then I must begin to line up my actions with what I have come to believe.
So where do I start working on changing what I believe? The Bible is filled with many scriptures about who God says that I am. I can start meditating on the Word of God. I can write out those scriptures. I can memorize those truths. I can apply them to my life. I can pray that God will help me to see myself as He sees me.
When I have that down, then I can start looking up scriptures about what God says about my future and do the same thing. It will not change what I believe overnight, but with consistent application, what I believe will begin to line up with what God says about me and about my future so that I can line up my actions with who I really am and what I am called to do.
