Three Keys to Change Your Reality

We do not err because truth is difficult to see. It is visible at a glance. We err because this is
more comfortable. ~Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Did you ever stub your toe? All of a sudden, every part of your body is focused on the pain in that little toe. You’ve forgotten that nothing else hurts, that the rest of your body is functioning wonderfully well. The only ‘reality’ you have at that moment is your sore toe.

So, how can you use Truth to change the realities – the circumstances and pains – of your life?

First, change your attention. What do you need to do? Think about something else! Remember in Reality vs. Truth Part I, I told you it’s impossible to think two thoughts at the same time. If you change your thinking by giving your attention to something else, the pain recedes. That’s the reason your aches go
away when you go to sleep. Your mind isn’t focused on the pain anymore.

Truth declares that God is our healer, provider, protector. Whatever negative ‘reality’ you are dealing with, focus your attention on His promises – your solution, instead of the problem. We both know that rehashing the problem over and over won’t change a thing. Worry is worthless. Instead, focus on the answer – the truth you need from God’s Word.

Next, change your words. If you spend enough time and attention on God’s promises, you will flood your heart (spirit) with the eternal truth of your victory. When it fills you to abundance, it will be easy to speak those promises out loud. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.” What you believed with your heart and said with your mouth is your current reality. But you can change your reality by changing what you believe and speak.

Don’t be a fence-sitter where your life is concerned. If you truly want change, you must change from the inside out!

Third, practice gratitude. A grateful heart is optimistic. It’s also peaceful. Thanksgiving is powerful. The
Bible declares that God “inhabits” our praise (Ps. 22:3). You connect with Him in a powerful way when you
practice an attitude of gratitude.

Let me explain it this way. If you have kids, you know that, no matter how much you love them, you’re more inclined to help them and do good for them when they have a good attitude and are grateful for what you’ve already done.

When they are complaining, bickering and being mean, you just want to send them to their rooms! Well, God is our Divine Parent and I’m sure He feels the same way about us. Complaining won’t open His heart. Faith and gratitude will.

His Word is Truth because God can’t lie. Whatever He says happens. You can take advantage of that by
believing and saying the same things He says. And that’s the truth!
