It’s one thing to think about what you want to do. It’s another thing to speak about what you plan to do.
But, it’s an entirely different matter to act on what you’ve been thinking and speaking about doing.
One evening, after a particularly long day. . .I came across James 1:22-24 in the Message Bible which says:
“Don't fool yourself into thinking that you are a listener when you are anything but, letting the Word go in one ear and out the other. Act on what you hear! Those who hear and don't act are like those who glance in the mirror, walk away, and two minutes later have no idea who they are, what they look like.”
I was struck by five words in this passage of scripture when it says:
ACT ON WHAT YOU HEAR!
Even before the Lord dropped Rich Thoughts into my spirit nearly twelve years ago, I’ve always considered myself a Rich Thinker. . .someone who acted on what they believed.
As I was reflecting on this. . .the Lord directed me to challenge us to think differently.
Action Step #1 Start with Rich Thoughts.
