What I want in this teaching is to help you to distinguish between what thoughts are from you, what thoughts are from God and what thoughts are from the devil.
We must distinguish between what is from God and what is not, for the enemy has even made you believe many of his thoughts and lies.
It might be that he sends thoughts that it is God who condemned you for a sin you did, but those condemning thoughts came from him. He is called the accuser, not the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is our helper and comforter.
Remember too: Even if you can do evil things, you are not evil, and you are not the sin, but it is a power called sin who would like to use you to do its deeds.
There are three tings that are closely connected, and effects the way we relate to our selves to God and others, and the way we can reach out to a broken, fearful, depressed and sinful world. It is also Important for your mental and physical healing.
Your picture of God – How do you see God and how do you think he sees you? Your picture of yourself – Your picture of your creator, the way you think he looks at you, reflects also how you look at yourselves. Your picture of other people. – The way you think God is towards you, the same way you will think he is to other people. Like: If you think God is constantly angry at you, you will get angry at other people, and your self the same way.
