To Change Your Health Habits, Change the Way You Think

"Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts." (Proverbs 4:23 TEV)

Changing your health habits is like driving a speedboat on a lake with your automatic pilot set to go east. If you want to reverse course, you could try to physically force the wheel in the opposite direction, but you'd likely get tired, let go, and the boat would drift back.

But there's a better option: Change your autopilot. The same is true with your health habits. To make a lasting change, you must change how you think. Behind everything you do - even your unhealthy habits - is a thought that keeps you from getting healthy. Instead, the Bible says you should "have the same mindset as Christ Jesus" (Philippians 2:5).

God wants you to learn to think like Jesus. How do you do that? You meditate on God's Word and you ask, "Lord, how would Jesus think about this?" The more you fill your mind with the Word of God, the easier that's going to be.

"Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts" (Proverbs 4:23 TEV).
