Empowering Thoughts to Live

During the time this nation was formed and afterwards, there were three empowering thoughts that were dominant in the lives of people. These empowering thoughts caused people to live moral, upright, helpful lives.

These empowering thoughts were based on the Bible truth: “Do to others as you would have them do to you.”

The Three Empowering Thoughts Were:

(1) Let your word be your bond: do what you say you’ll do.
(2) Don’t hurt anyone else or take anything from them.
(3) Respond to others, help them and love them whenever you can.

EMPOWERMENT

Pretty simple, huh? What an easy way to do good. What a great way to connect positively with people. Doing good is how we ‘get back to basics.’

This is a simple and easy way to experience empowering in life. When we help others, we become more energized. “What goes around comes around.”

There’s a modern phrase that speaks to this in many ways: “Pay it forward.” If we live this way, we’d be an inspirational model to others. These thoughts weren’t part of our Constitution, but they were part of our Constitutional thinking and personal lifestyle.

Empowerment Comes from Inside

You know, there are good and bad things said about the now fairly old book by
Dr. Norman Vincent Peale: THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING.

The reality is that our thinking should be positive, and edifying, encouraging and uplifting to others. And we should voice our positive thoughts. There is a saying: “We can’t consistently act, on the outside, different from how we think on the inside.” Yes, we can fool some people part of the time, but the key word here is consistently.

Too often, however, we use faith and confession like metaphysical tools to get our own way and to have a better life — in whatever way we define it. Our slogan becomes, “If it is to be, it is up to me.” That may be true if you don’t know the power of God in you.

Empowerment Comes from God

But when our faith is in God, and what he is doing in us, then we have a strength and an empowerment that we don’t have by any other means. Our power becomes centrifugal and synergistic. This is why Paul calls the gospel “the power of God,” and it’s why I also am The Gospel Life Coach ChristianLifeGospelCoaching.com

God begins a good work in us, and keeps performing it in us (Phil 1:6).
The gospel that produces good things from us (Col 1:5-6).
He does all that we can begin to think or even imagine (Eph 3:20).
When we partner with God in all things, then all things turn out better.

And God is very much into the three things we discussed above:
(1) Let your word be your bond: do what you say you’ll do.
(2) Don’t hurt anyone else or take anything from them.
(3) Respond to others, help them and love them whenever you can.
