The desire to take control of the happenings around his territory, has been a very old yearning in the heart of man. The simple reason is that man was created to dominate. According to the Holy Bible in Genesis 1:28, after God had created man, He (God) told him (man) to have dominion over the whole earth. Therefore, every deep and strong secret yearning to be in control has been a natural thing for every human being.
You might also be nursing that desire to dominate in one area or the other right now. You might even be feeling very helpless concerning one situation or circumstance and wants a quick solution to take control and be in dominion. Nevertheless, you must always learn to dig deep beyond what you can see physically. The big stem and the big branches of the great tree is just a replica of the great size of its roots.
Many people wish to take control of the circumstances of their lives but they don’t know how to do so. Many in their confusion as they struggle to take control of their circumstances, have resorted to fighting the wrong people. They exonerate themselves and blame others for all their predicaments. They see other human beings as their enemies. Thus, fighting other human beings becomes the only option for them.
It is absolutely imperative that we all understand this simple truth that a man’s problem is usually rooted in his own thoughts. A lot of people will not accept this truth because they have trained themselves to always blame other people for their own problems. Those who have developed such a faulty mind-set will permanently keep themselves as victims in this life. They will never tap from the strength that lies within if they don’t change.
If you want to take control of your world, you must wake up and take responsibility for the things that happen in your life. You are the Captain of the ship of your life: take control of your ship. As the Captain of the ship of your life, your ability to take control only depends on how much you can control your very own thoughts. If you cannot take control of your very own thoughts; then, you can never take control of the circumstances of your life.
The Holy Bible clearly says, “for as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7). Meaning, you are just a mere picture of your thoughts. Your whole life is just a true reflection of your very own thoughts. The happenings around you is a true reflection of the things you have been thinking about all these years. Now the big question is this: What kind of thoughts have you been keeping recently? Your future depends on those thoughts that you are not taking seriously.
Thoughts of failure will produce failure for you. Thoughts of fear will attract the things you are afraid of. The Holy Bible reveals something remarkable about the kind of thoughts that occupied the heart of Job. Job lamented, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me” (Job 3:25). Meaning, Job’s thoughts attracted all the calamities and the miseries of his life.
Your life will never be different from the kinds of thoughts you are keeping. Choose your thoughts wisely henceforth. You have the ability to do it. Choose thoughts of love, joy, happiness, forgiveness, faith, favour, humility, kindness, safety, strength, health, wealth, prosperity and abundance. Start now and take control of your thoughts. Change your world by just changing your own thoughts. Change your thoughts and change your world. The choice is yours.
The Holy Bible, which has been proved over the years by renowned Scholars of Faith, to have all the solution to all of man’s problems, expressly admonishes us on the kind of things we should think on. It clearly says, “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” (Philippians 4:8).
