First of all, I realize that beginning a blog post with the phrase God Sees You can seem rather ominous but please continue reading and you’ll see that I mean it in the most loving way possible. Anyone who reads the Bible is bound to have at least one story that just throws them for a loop. For some, it’s the story of Cain and Able (Genesis 4).

In the book Battlefield of the Mind, Joyce Myers talks about how important it is, in your Christian walk to really take preeminence over your thoughts. Something that’s really important because as Proverbs 23:7 (KJV) puts it for as a man thinketh…so is he… and Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) succinctly states, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything flows from it”.
In short, these passages stress the importance of being mindful of your thoughts because your thoughts run your life. When satan tricked Eve he did it through her thoughts, … More 9 | Promises of God | You can Use Scripture to Overcome Negative Thoughts
