Are You Limiting Your Beliefs

I am currently reading a book where the author says, "Your Beliefs Shape Your Reality."

He goes on to say that we can have limiting beliefs or liberating truths. 

A limiting belief is something that you believe, but it keeps you from reaching your goals.  
A liberating truth is what replaces that limiting belief when you either reject it or reframe it. 

If you have done an honest review of 2017 and said to yourself, "Well that was a waste of time"don't feel bad.  Lots of people are saying that.  The question is, what are you going to do about it?  

Proverbs 28:26 Whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered.

#1 - Determine that you do not want to waste another minute of God's time.  Everything belongs to God.  Even the ticks on the clock as they pass by.  God has given you the time that you have, what are going to do with them? 

#2 - Ask the Holy Spirit to give you an honest assessment of yourself.  Sure it can be painful.  But the pain of regret is never more significant than the pain that comes from doing nothing. 

#3 - Ask for wisdom.  I blogged about that a few days ago.  The wisdom that the writer of Proverbs is talking about comes from God.  Read James 1.  God will give you all the wisdom you need to make the right decisions in your life.  Especially the eternal ones.  But he goes on to say, " You don't have it because you didn't ask for it."  Good point James.  So it is up to you to ask. 

PRAY: Dear Jesus, I'm asking for wisdom to make the right decisions and overcome my limited beliefs in myself.  AMEN
