bad thoughts

Discussion in 'Counseling' started by sealightbreeze, Jun 30, 2007.

  1. I am not sure if this is the right place. I have been depressed lately. But, some bad things happened today. And, for some reason my mind turned to suicide. Even though, I know it is wrong. Please pray for me:love:

    2 Corinthians 10.5 says to take every thought captive. We have to focus our thoughts on the right things which are found in the Bible. You need to really seek God and know that He is in control. Cast all your cares onto Him.

    1 Now I, Paul, myself am pleading with you by the meekness and gentleness of Christ—who in presence am lowly among you, but being absent am bold toward you. 2 But I beg you that when I am present I may not be bold with that confidence by which I intend to be bold against some, who think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. 3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. 4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 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, 6 and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.

    Matt.11.28

    28 Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

    Sister you need to put your trust in God. He supplies your needs.

    God bless

    I rebuke that spirit of suicide out of that person mind right now in the name of JESUS of Nazareth!

    Sealight, do you know that Satan is playing with your mind and that the only thing he can do is to mess us up by playing with our mind but please do not let the enemy to do that into your life.

    I know I have mess up today but it was something that my mind was full of things with a strong temptation and along with toughness of my flesh but here is hard to make a right choice but is all about choice but we need to choose the right one but not the wrong one so don't make that mistake and that suicide is not something that can led to heaven because it is sin to murder even murdering your self because your body dose not belong to you and that it dose belong to God amen so God has great plans in your life and he is not finishing with you yet because killing your self stop God from His will and doing the work in your life because who know because you may have a powerful ministry on the inside of you, so don't let the devil mess you up because he knows there something great in you I know there something great in you because God even says that! :love::boy_hug:

  9. How can I take control of my thoughts?
    Question: "How can I take control of my thoughts?"
    From: Gotquestions

    Answer: Taking control of your thoughts is essential. Proverbs 4:23 states: "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." Someone said that every sin we commit, we commit twice: once in our thoughts and then in action form. And, as the Holy Spirit dwells within the believer, we can either grieve or please Him by our thought life (Ephesians 4:30). And it is easiest to rid our lives of sin if we attack it at this fundamental level rather than waiting for it to become rooted in our lives and then try to pull it out.

    There is also a difference between being tempted (a thought entering into our mind) and sinning (dwelling upon an evil thought and developing the theme of the thought that entered our mind). It is important that when a thought enters our mind, that we examine it based upon God's Word and determine if we should continue down that path or reject the thought and replace it with another path. If we have already allowed a habit to form in our thought lives, it becomes more difficult to change the path of our thoughts even as it is hard to get a car out of a deep rut and along a new track. Here are some biblical suggestions in taking control of your thoughts and getting rid of wrong thoughts:

    1. Be in God's Word so that when a sinful thought enters your mind (a temptation), you will be able to recognize it and know what course to take your thoughts down. Jesus, when tempted in Mathew chapter 4, responded to each of Satan's temptation with Scripture that applied to the direction that his mind and life should take instead of taking the path of the sinful thought. When tempted to meet his own need (turn stone into bread), he brought up the passage that talks about the importance of relying upon God. When tempted to serve Satan in order to obtain the glory of the world, He brought up the passages that says we are to serve and worship God alone and speak of the glory that belongs to Him and those who are His.

    When tempted to test God (prove to ourselves that God is really there and will keep His promises), He responded with passages that stress the importance of believing God without having to see Him demonstrate His presence. Quoting Scripture in a time of temptation is not a "talisman," but rather is to serve the purpose of getting our minds back down a biblical track, but we need to know the Word of God AHEAD of time in order to accomplish this. Thus, a daily habit of being in the Word in a meaningful way is essential. If you are aware of a certain area of constant temptation (worry, lust, anger, etc.), I encourage you to work on studying and memorizing key passages that deal with these issues. Look for both what you are to avoid (negative) and how you are to properly respond (positive) to tempting thoughts in these areas.

    2. Live in dependence upon the Holy Spirit...chiefly through seeking His strength through prayer (Matthew 26:41). If we rely upon our own strength, we will fail (Proverbs 28:26; Jeremiah 17:9; Matthew 26:33).

    3. Do not feed your mind that which will promote sinful thoughts. This is the idea of Proverbs 4:23. Guard your heart...what you allow into it and what you allow it to dwell on. Job 31:1 states: "I have made a covenant with my eyes; Why then should I look upon a young woman" (NKJV). Romans 13:14 states, "But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts." Thus, avoid periodicals, videos, web-sites, and times and situations that will set you up for a fall.

    4. Pursue hard after God. Replace sinful thoughts with godly pursuits and thoughts. This is the principle of replacement. When tempted to hate someone, you replace those hateful thought with godly actions: do good to them, speak well of them, and pray for them (Matthew 5:44). Instead of stealing, work hard to earn money so that you can look for opportunities to give to others in need (Ephesians 4:28). When tempted to lust after a woman, turn one's gaze, praise God for the way He has made us...male and female, pray for the woman (for example: "Lord, help this young woman to come to know you if she does not, and to know the joy of walking with you"); and think of her as you would your sister (put your sister's face on her in your mind) (1 Timothy 5:2). The Bible often speaks of "putting off" wrong actions and thoughts BUT THEN "putting on” godly actions and thoughts (Ephesians 4:22-32). Merely seeking to put off sinful thoughts without replacing those thoughts and pursuits with godly ones leave an empty field for Satan to come along and sow his weeds in (Matthew 12:43-45).

    5. Use fellowship with other Christians the way God intended. Hebrews 10:24-25 state, "And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching." Seek out a fellow Christian who can encourage you from the Word in the change you desire (best if of the same gender), someone who will pray for you and with you, who will ask you in love how you are doing, and one who will hold you accountable in avoiding the old ways.

    Lastly and most importantly, I do not know whether you have already placed your faith in Christ as Savior from your sin or not. This is where you absolutely must start! Without this, there can be no victory over sinful thoughts and temptations and His promises for his children are not for you; nor is the Holy Spirit’s power available to you! If you are not trusting Jesus now as your Savior from your sin or do not understand what I mean by this, visit the area of our website dealing with this all-important issue: Got Eternal Life? Do you know for sure that you will have eternal life in Heaven with God?.

    May God bless you as you seek to honor Him with what matters most to Him: who you are inside and not just what you appear to be to others. May God make Jesus’ description of Nathanael true also of you...a man in whom there is no guile (John 1:47).
     
  10. Thank you all- I have prayed, and feel much better now. I will continue to pray for God's guidance.
     
  11. Glad to hear this sister. GOD heals our hurts and guides our minds when week seek Him in Jesus. You are newly saved and alread you show positive growth and faith. You've prayed and already, you've learned the power of prayer.

    GOD bless you. As you grow in your walk with Christ, you will learn much and GOD will show you His awesome grace!

  13. thank you so much. GOD bless you Chad. I agree with Styles4Christ- this site has helped me in so many ways. Thank you all
     
  14. God bless you brother. Praise GOD for the site and for all He has done for us, in Jesus Christ. I appreciate your encouragement as well.


    God bless you too sister. Something I forgot to mention if others haven't yet...to repel bad thoughts and put yourself in a peaceful mood:

    - worship music
    - prayer
    - quiet environment (aside worship music)
    - bible reading and meditating on specific verses that you choose

    Also, I strongly encourage aromatherapy or any other candles. I love candles and can't get enough of the GOD given wide array of amazing scents. Aromatherapy seriously relaxes you and just puts you in a sweet mood. Add worship music and prayer you got a fine mix.
