16 dangers of negative thoughts
Dear brother or sister in Christ I plead with you never to entertain any negative thought in your mind, which is your heart . Negative thoughts are very dangerous. Below I give 16 dangers of negative thoughts.
1. The human mind is a battlefield of Satanic manipulation. Satan tries his best to inject negative thoughts into people’s minds. If you entertain them you will be pleasing the Devil and you may slowly descend into Hell.
2. Negative thoughts are destructive.
3. Negative thoughts hinder progress. Listen to what negative thoughts did to the children of Israel:
“But the men who had gone up with him said, “We can’t attack those people; they are stronger than we are.” 32 And they spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored. They said, “The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are of great size. 33 We saw the Nephilim there (the descendants of Anak come from the Nephilim). We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.”
4. Negative thoughts cause failure.
5. They create stagnation.
6. They annoy God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit (Numbers 14:10-12).
“The Lord said to Moses, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? 12 I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they“
7. Negative thoughts may cause self hatred.
8. They may create despair.
9. They may cause insecurity.
10. They may make you useless.
12. They may make you feel unworthy.
13. They may cause conflicts.
14. They may cause fear (2 Timothy 1:7).
15. They may cause premature death.
16. They may cause suicide.
Please, I need for prayers on this thought. I have been this way my whole life. I have been brought up in a dysfunctional family. My father, was a tyrant. standing at 6’1″, you don’t dare run from him, when, it comes to discipline. He will unleash his belt in full swing. You don’t dare, cower away from him. He will wait patiently for your return, and when you do return, his anger will be twice as fierce as it was before hand. He had always drank. He would always, come home well after dinner time was over, and insist that my mother make him dinner, and when she didn’t, he would get very angry with her. I wan’t the only one who would get the brunt of his fierce anger. My two older sisters, and my oldest brother had also, gotten a tase of his anger. Not quite sure, about my other brother, who is a year and a half older than me, or my oldest sister. Then, in 1972, my mother filed for the divorce. In 1973, I was forced into having oral sex with boys. I was dared into giving up my virginity at the age of 10. I was coerced into going with a couple of girls I knew, whom I thought, were going to buy something at a store, only to find out, they weren’t going there to buy, but to steal. Later, I found myself, in the hands of my oldest brother, as he forced himself onto me and having sex with me. It led me to have pleasurable sex on my own. I have been beating myself up over this whole thing for 48 long years. I can’t seem to get it out of my head. I want to rid myself of all the negative thoughts that runs ragged through my head, but don’t know how. I ask, please…..tell me how do I get these negative thoughts out of my head? How can I truly, rid myself of these destructive thoughts that constantly, nags at my conscious all day long? Please………tell me.
My Dear Sister,
I am very sorry about what you have gone through. Only one thing can take away all these bad thoughts from your mind. It is our Lord Jesus Christ. If you take Jesus Christ as the Lord of your life, He will wash away all these thoughts with his Blood. When you receive Jesus Christ in your heart, you become a new creature. God gives you a second chance. Your mind is renewed. The old thoughts go away. Jesus gives you new thoughts.
Why you keep on getting thoughts about your bad past.
Sister, it is the Devil (Satan) who keeps on reminding you about your bad past. You have to daily refuse Satan to keep on reminding you about your bad past by doing the following.
1. Take Jesus Christ seriously in your life.
2. Live a life of prayer. Always start with the Lord prayer. Then bind and cast away those demons reminding you about your bad past. Do this every time you think about your past. Tell the Devil he cannot plant thoughts of your bad past in your mind.
3. Every morning, start the day by covering yourself, especially your mind, with the Blood of Jesus Christ. The Blood of Jesus will wash away your bad past and prevent Satan from reminding you about your past.
Sister, there are some individuals who have done worse things than you, but God changed their lives and washed away all their bad past. After forgetting their bad past, God started using them mightily. You have never murdered a person. But I know of some persons who murdered people. They accepted Jesus Christ and repented, they forgot their past, and God started using them in his Kingdom. Look at Moses of the Bible (Book of Exodus). He murdered an Egyptian but he got a new life through our Lord and after that God used him mightily to deliver many other people from bondage.
Please say this prayer:
“My Father in Heaven. I come to you in the Name of Jesus Christ. Father, it written in the Bible that if we confess (repent) our sins, you are faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness. Father, please forgive me all the bad things I did in my past. Help me not to do them again. Wash me with the Blood of Jesus Christ, Cleanse my mind of all the bad thoughts I had. Renew my mind with good thoughts about your Kingdom. Help to always look at the future, and not the past. Let Jesus Christ be the Lord of my life. In Jesus’s Name I pray. AMEN”
Sister, that prayer will bring peace and new thoughts in your life.
May God bless you. May the Blood of Jesus Christ wash away all your bad past from your mind. May God our Father give you a completely new mind.
