Like attracts like.
Whatever the conscious mind thinks and believes.
the subconscious identically creates.
~ Brian Adams (from ‘How To Succeed’)
The atmosphere is the air or climate in a place.When i talk about changing your atmosphere i am talking about changing the air around you.
We all carry a certain air around us and the air we carry around us moves with us where ever we go with a certain aroma,and this aroma attracts either good or bad.
We must realise that our atmosphere determines what comes to us,there are some people who have a very strange atmosphere around them,that where ever they are or go they attract only something bad.
I used to know someone that actually always attracts bad,where ever he is ,something bad actually happens and everyone knew him that where ever he was something will always go wrong,especially a fight and there are some of us who actually face situations and they have concluded that bad luck follows them,that something bad always happens to them,I would like to show you a way how you can actually change your atmosphere and begin to practically attract good instead of evil.
The bible which is Gods word,shows us how we can do that,let us look at few ways how you can change your atmosphere:
- CHANGE YOUR PERCEPTION ABOUT YOURSELF.
This is so important for us if we will actually have success in changing our atmosphere.
The way we think about ourselves smells around us like a perfume,the Bible in Proverbs 23:7 says “For as a man thinketh in his heart,so his he” the main word here is thinketh or thinks,that word is shaar which means to calculate,to reckon,to estimate.
The question now is,what is the estimation of yourself,how do you think of yourself?
You are exactly the way you think,you cannot separate a man from his mindset.That’s why the bible says “out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” Luke 6:45,in other words,your mouth will only release what is in your heart.
The way we think about ourselves,will affect the direction of our lives,you cannot go further than your mindset.If you are going to change your atmosphere you must change the way you think.
Sometimes we allow ourselves to accept peoples estimation of us,other peoples estimation maybe a result of a one time event or performance,but you are not exactly what people say but what you believe,when you start accepting and believing peoples conclusion of you,you start becoming what they say you are.
Start changing what you keep your thoughts on and what you believe about yourself,think right,focus on what will build your life and not what will pull you down.
The book of Philipians 4:8 shows us things to focus our minds on,lets see “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things”
If there be any virtue and if there be any praise,think on these things,so the standard for your thoughts should be,is there any virtue,is there any praise? if you find non don’t waste your mind on them,fix on your mind on those things,that edify you,that lifts you up,I say think forward.
The mistake we make is when we wait on others to commend us and make us feel happy,I know from experience,that something people are not good at is to always commend and encourage you,you need to have the right mindset about you because no one will make you feel better,encourage yourself and have the right idea about who you really are.so think positive about yourself,change how you think.
- THINK ON THE WORD
Finally you are not what people say you are,you are what God says you are,that’s why the best book to read so as to get the right idea about you is the bible,the bible shows you the thoughts of God towards you,he said and I love this scripture “my thoughts for you are good and not evil,to give you a hope and a future” Jeremiah 29:11,that’s how he thinks about you,he loves you,so when others say something bad,tell them I am who God says I am,I am the blood bought child of God,if you were not important and special and priceless,God would not have sent his son,his only begotten son to die for you,you are special,a royal priesthood,a holy nation,you were chosen before the foundation of the world to show forth Gods glory,you are special.
Change how you think,stop playing pity party,people don’t want to stay around those who are always sad,you won’t attract help staying sad,start changing your perception of yourself,right now,you are blessed and not cursed,you are the apple of Gods eyes,Gods special baby,start meditating on those things and you will see how your atmosphere will begin to change.
Don’t give the devil a foothold,something to hold unto,some people feel bad about themselves that they commit suicide,don’t let the devil use your thoughts to bring depression on yourself,you now live on drugs to help you be happy,that you become addicted to it and soon it kills you,the word of God is medicine for your soul,it has power to change your thoughts and your life forever,the bible says “ For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” the word has the ability to work in your mind and deal with the depression and pain in your heart.
The word is alive and active,the word of God is full of enough life to energize and revitalize you,the word here is the spoken word of God,when you receive the spoken word into your spirit,it causes you to come alive,to be refreshed,strengthened and stronger,it takes always the inactivity in you causes you to become alive,that’s the word of God.
Start thinking on the word,pick up a scripture daily and meditate on it and see how your life will change,as you feed your spirit with the word,feed your spirit with songs that uplift you and edify you,not those that will make you think evil,you can change your atmosphere and start to attract only positivity and good,you attract what you respect,start thinking right and see the power that your thoughts will produce.
Receive the word of God that is able to save your souls,Gods word has the power to save your souls,I dare you to start seeing yourself as the word of God sees you,blessed,fulfilled,a success,wealthy and not poor,a giver and not a borrower,a blessing and not a curse,you are totally who God says you are,change your atmosphere.
Joshua 1:8 says “ This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success”
The book of the law “the word of God” as you meditate on it day and night,you will be careful to do what it says,you shall be prosperous and have good success.
