You cannot imagine or dream all the plans I have for. Plans for your good. Set your mind on Me this day, not on what you see. Walk by faith, not by sight with expectation of all I have planned for you.


You get Jesus into any situation by serving Him in that situation. If you don’t feel like God is within your thought life, start actively serving God in it. Get very intentional about what you do and don’t allow your mind to dwell on.   

Every action is first a thought. Our thoughts decide who we serve. If I fill my mind with “me, myself and I”, who am I serving in my thoughts but myself? I can choose what thoughts I want to fill my days and I have decided to choose well. 

Graham Cooke says, “If you have a thought that’s plaguing you, have a different thought.” “But Pastor Troy, I don’t have the power to do that.” Who told you that you don’t have the power to change your thoughts? You do!

“Well, Pastor Troy, I can’t help how I feel.” My friend, you might not be able to help how you feel, but you can help how you think – and how you think determines how you feel.

When I was a young man and noticed a beautiful woman, the Lord taught me very early to pray for her, “Save her from my lust, Lord.” You have authority within this stuff. You don’t have to just let it control you. 

Pray for the people you’re having a problem with whether it’s lust, anger, bitterness, jealousy – whatever!  Don’t try to hide your darker thoughts from God. Take them to Him so He can lock them away where they belong. 

“…casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ…” – 2 Corinthians 10:5
