Critical, Depressing Thoughts Do Not Come From God.
Positive thinking is a source of contention and
confusion in many churches. Some churches seem to worship at the
altar of the mind rather than placing their faith in God who made
their mind. Other churches believe all they need to do is
live by faith, and they ignore the mind. They do not understand
that the mind is the door through which the power of God's love gets
into their life. They do not understand that positive
thinking is not the invention of man. Rather, positive thinking
is the creation of God. God created it to be the natural
software for our minds, and positive thinking is the most efficient
way to run our brains. When we are running our mind using a
positive operating system, we are running our brain in the way God
intends it to run.
The most positive force in the universe is God's love, and when the
positive power of God's love controls our heart and mind, we become
truly positive. It's impossible to think in a negative manner
when God's love is in control.
Christian thinking is always positive, but positive thinking is not
always Christian. Christian thinking is always loving, and when
love controls our heart and mind, we become positive people.
The Christian message is about God's transforming love that makes us
into positive loving people. The message is not about positive
thinking. God's love is the cause, and positive thinking
is the effect. The focus needs to be on God's love in order to
keep positive thinking in its proper perspective.
Positive thinking is also about believing God's promises. Jesus said, "As you believe, so shall it be done unto
you." Positive belief takes the handcuffs off God, and allows
him to work miracles in our lives. God needs people like you and
me to carry out his mission in the world, and when we have positive
faith, God unleashes his power. When we suspend our disbelief,
faith takes control. We get out of the way and stop limiting
Although God has unlimited power, He needs people to accomplish his
purpose and plan. He needs people who suspend their disbelief
and move forward in positive faith so that He can release his power.
God is a positive God, and when we get in agreement with him, our
thoughts turn positive, and the power of his love flows through our
heart and mind. We become new people with a new way of thinking

depression is hard, perhaps the hardest thing you will ever do.
But if you want to have a mind free from depression, nobody can
stop you. Your emotions are a reflection of your thoughts. When
you change your thoughts, your emotions automatically change. You
don't have to battle the negative and twisted emotions echoing in
your mind. Instead you need to learn how to change the way you
think, and your emotions will naturally take care of themselves.
The challenge you face in depression is to change the way you

THINKING AS GOD THINKS
In Matthew 16:23 Jesus said, ďYou are a stumbling block to me.
You think as men think, not as God thinks." Jesus said that when we think like men, we stumble.
How we think and what we think is important. Wrong thinking
trips us up. We need a new way of thinking; we need to think as
When you get in agreement with God, then you
are thinking the way that God thinks. You need to understand how God
thinks so that you can get in agreement with him.
God is the God of the possible. Impossible is not
found in his vocabulary, and impossibility doesnít exist in his
universe. Everything is possible when you think the way God
HOW DOES GOD THINK?
God thinks abundance. Jesus said that he had come
so that you might have life and have it more abundantly. God
created the world and everything in it. What you need is no big
deal to God. Supplying your needs wonít break his back or
bankrupt his kingdom. God enjoys giving you good things.
His plan is to fill your cup with blessings until it runs over.
God thinks possibility. All things are possible
when you think the way God thinks. God is the God of
possibility, and there is no limit to how good your life can become
when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks positive. The most positive force in
the universe is Godís love. It changes the way you think and
feel making you into a positive person.
God thinks positive expectations. When you get
into agreement with God, your expectations change. Impossible
becomes possible, and scarcity becomes abundance. God has a
powerful positive plan for your life. God expects good things to
happen in your life when you think the way that He thinks.
God thinks forgiveness. God forgives you for the
wrong things that you have done. He not only wipes the slate
clean, He also throws the slate away.
God thinks freedom for the captives. Jesus came
to set the prisoners free. The chains of lack and limitation
fall off when you think the way God thinks.
God thinks release from oppression. Jesus came to
liberate you from all forms of oppression. Economic, spiritual,
chemical, and psychological dependencies disappear when you think the
way God thinks.
God thinks recovery of what has been lost. The
blind receive their sight. What the world destroys and takes
away, God recovers and restores.
God thinks favor. He bestows his blessings on all
who get in agreement with him. He opens the windows of heaven,
and blessings fall all around.
God thinks good news. God has no dark side. He is
on our side, and is in it with us for the long haul. All of
Godís thoughts are good news. When you become silent and listen
for Godís voice, you hear his positive message of love.
You can trust God. If you do your part, God
will do his. When you get in agreement with him, when you think
the way that He thinks, then God starts working miracles in your life.
God already knows what you need even before you ask.
God wants to give you good things even more than you want to receive
them. But first you must ask. Jesus said, ďAsk and you will receive.Ē
simply recognizes that God is the source of all good things, and that
He can be trusted to provide. Outsourcing doesnít exist in Godís
kingdom of love. All of us need to be reminded that God is
our source. God will give you what you need unless you block
him. There are no shortages in Godís kingdom of love. God
is a God of abundance, and when you get in agreement with him, when
you trust him to supply your needs, when you have positive
expectations, then the windows of heaven open, and blessings fall all
The most powerful and most positive force in
the universe is God's love. When God's love gets inside your heart and
mind, it changes the way you think and feel. When your mind is full
of thoughts consistent with God's love, then your mind is exactly the way
God means for it to be. When your heart is full of emotions that are
consistent with God's love, then your emotions are healthy, and they are
exactly the way God means for them to be.
Dr. Abbott's specialty is restoring inner
vision so people can look at the world through eyes of possibility and
love. In order to make that happen, people need to experience the
power of God's love. They need to learn how to max out on God's
If you are looking for a statement of faith, a
spiritual insurance policy, or want to be compressed into a spiritual
mold, you are at the wrong place. If you want to experience the power of
God's love to get a new way of thinking and feeling, you are definitely in
the right place.
If you want to grow spiritually, then you need
to learn how to Max Out On God's Love.
What does it mean to Max Out on God's Love?
1. You dare to call God
2. You have a personal
relationship with God based on love. You fall in love with God.
3. You send your love
back to God through loving other people. You fall in love with other
4. You practice God's
presence every day all day long.
5. You give up your need
to be right and switch the focus of your life to love.
6. You move in the
direction of the dream that God placed in your heart regardless of the
consequences. You act as if that dream is possible and work each day to
make it happen.
7. You use prayer to do a
reality check and align yourself with God's plan for your life.You trust
God's plan because it's good for you and perfect for the type of person
8. You open your heart
and mind to the power of God's love. His love washes the toxic waste out
of your mind and heals your damaged emotions.
9. You live congruently as a whole person
with your intellect, emotions, and will all heading in the same
direction. You become an Unstoppable, Consistently Positive, Endlessly

This is your big opportunity to become alive
spiritually. This is your chance to become a new person with a
new way of thinking and feeling. If that's what you want, then this
course is for you.
a personal relationship with God is more than a celestial insurance policy
that guarantees safe passage to paradise when you die. It has more to do
with the here and now. If you get the here and now right, you donít need
to worry about what will happen when you die. The Father who took care of
you during your stay on planet earth is trustworthy, and when itís time
for your promotion, He will take care of you on the other side of
eternity. You can count on that!
God focuses his love on you right where you are with all your problems and
addictions, and He does it now. The Father is a here and now God.
is too hard for God. After all, He created the universe and everything in
it. When it comes to dealing with your problems and turning your life
around, Heís in it with you for the long haul, and He is ready to move
mountains of difficulty out of your life. God will do more than point you
in the right direction. He will also give you the power to make the trip.
can you expect from your personal relationship with God?
When Jesus started his mission on planet earth, he stated exactly what you
should expect. He said that he came, ďTo announce good news to the poor,
to proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, to
release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lordís favor.Ē That is
his master plan for the here and now.
There is Good News in the here and now, and you are supposed to
take it personally.
There is Freedom in the here and now, and you are supposed to take
There is Recovery from what has been lost in the here and now, and
you are supposed to take it personally.
There is Release from oppression in the here and now, and you are
supposed to take it personally.
There is Godís special favor in the here and now, and you are
supposed to take it personally.
a dream for your life that has all of these components in it. His master
plan is good news from start to finish. Old things will pass away, and
God will make all things new. You will discover the truth that sets you
free. You will recover what has been lost. You will be released from all
forms of oppression, and your addictions will become a thing of the past.
Finally, God will open the windows of heaven and pour out blessings into
your life. That sounds like a plan that I can live with. Thatís
what Jesus came to do in the here and now, and itís high time that you
take it personally.
Jesus said that faith is essential to making
your life into what you want it to be. He said, "As you believe, so it
shall be done unto you." What is it about faith that makes it so
1. Faith changes your vision. When you have
faith, you see possibilities that other people cannot appreciate. While
others stumble around in spiritual darkness, you see where you are going,
and you have clarity of purpose.
2. Faith changes your focus. You radically
shift your focus in a new direction, and that focus expands. Instead of
your limited and short-sighted dreams, you have the privilege of
experiencing God's dream for your life.
3. Faith takes the handcuffs off God. God
doesn't push and shove his way into your life. He enters your heart and
mind by invitation only. You must ask him to come in and change the way
you think and feel. Once you ask him into your heart and mind, the
handcuffs come off God, and He starts working miracles.
4. Faith gives you positive expectations. Your old way of thinking and
feeling is gone. You believe that there is no limit to how good your life
can become when you get in agreement with God's plan. When you say yes to
God, his purpose and plan take you places that you never dreamed were
5. Faith is a switch that turns you on and starts you moving. The
inertia of your old life dissipates as the power of God's love rolls
through your heart and mind.
6. Faith makes you congruent. Your head, heart, and will now want the
same thing and move in the same direction. You get in agreement with
God, and become a part of his unstoppable plan.
7. Faith gives you courage when you place your trust in God. God is your
Defender, the Captain of your fate, and the Master of your soul. He is
your Guide and will show you where to take the next step. He knows your
life from start to finish, and it won't be over until He says it's over.
You have nothing to fear.
Everything Is Possible - Everything in your life fits into
two columns. One column is labeled possible and the other is labeled
impossible. Your job is to think as God thinks and to move
everything over to the possible column. With God, all things are
possible. Impossible doesn't exist in God's universe, and it
shouldn't exist in yours. Impossible is not in God's vocabulary, and
it shouldn't be in yours. It's time to leave the Land of
Impossibility, the Land of Addictions, and the Land of Limitations behind
and to come to the promised land where all things are possible. It's
time to get in agreement with God. It's time to think as God thinks.
Thinking Scriptures - The Bible reveals the mind and heart
of God. It tells us how God thinks and feels about you and me.
God did not keep his thoughts to himself. It was his master plan
that we should think the thoughts of God - that we should think as God
thinks. Although it might seem presumptuous to believe that humans
can actually think the thoughts of God, we must remember that God created
us in his image, and He gave us the ability to think and feel. The
Creator of the universe actually did have a plan for our hearts and minds.
He planned to fill our hearts and minds with his love so that we can think
the thoughts of God.
Christian Scriptures - When God loves, He loves in a big way.
He creates people in his own image and loves them with an everlasting love
that has no preconditions. We sink or swim in his ocean of love.
Scriptures from the Bible tell us how God connects with people like you
and me. Scriptures help you understand who you are and what you can
do with God's help. They teach you to trust God in every area.
You learn to do your part so that God can do his part and accomplish
things that you could never do by yourself. You suspend your
disbelief and get out of the way so that the river of faith can sweep away
Attitude Of Praise
- Looking at the world through eyes of praise. Your attitude
is your way of looking at things, and it's a choice. Attitude is a
mind set. It's the way you choose to look at yourself and the world.
Jesus said, "Set your mind on God's kingdom and his way of doing things
before everything else, and all the rest will come to you as well.
Jesus made it clear that you attitude is important, and that it is a
choice. He told people to set their mind on the right things.
When they had the right attitude, God would see to it that things work
out. An attitude of praise connects you with God and reminds you of
God's work in your life.
Praise - An affirmation is a positive declaration of something you
know to be true. An affirmation of praise is a positive declaration
that recognizes the power and presence of God working in your life at
specific times and places in concrete ways. They remind you of God's work
in the past, they focus on God's work in the present, and they affirm
God's power in the future. Praise is part of your conversation with God.
It's spiritual glue that strengthens your connection with God. The more
you praise, the more you affirm God's presence and power. The more
you praise, the more faith wells up in your heart and mind.
Christian Psychology is simply thinking the way God thinks.
It's the way God intends for you to think and feel. It's getting in
agreement with God. When your mind is full of thoughts consistent
with God's love, your mind is exactly the way God means for it to be.
When your heart is full of emotions consistent with his love, your
emotions are healthy, and they are exactly the way God means for them to
be. This forms the cornerstone and focus of all Christian
Psychology. When you think the way that God thinks, your heart and
mind are full of God's love. Your thoughts are positive, and your
emotions are healthy. They are exactly the way God means for them to
POSITIVE CHRISTIAN AFFIRMATIONS FOR POSITIVE THINKING
I have opened my heart and mind to the power of God's love, and I dare
to call God my Father. I love God with
all my mind, all my heart, and all my strength. There is no
ambivalence in my relationship with God.
When I jump into God's ocean of love, my life is never the same. I am
born spiritually and become a new person. Old things pass away and all
tings become new. I look at the world through new eyes and listen with
new ears. I think new thoughts, take new actions, and have a new life.
God's love changes the way I think and feel. His love washes the toxic
waste out of my mind and gives me a clean mind and a pure heart. My old
way of thinking and feeling is gone. My mistakes and failures are cast
into God's ocean of love. For the first time in my life, I dare to
call God my Father and live as one of his children. God's love heals my
damaged emotions, and my negative feelings and guilt are washed away in
a tidal wave of love.
Each day I jump into God's ocean of love and have a life transforming
experience. Dabbling in it will never do. This isn't something that I
do just once and the positive effects last for a lifetime. I do it
every day for the rest of my life. For as long as I live, I will max
out on God's love.
I live in a world created and sustained
by love. The Creator of the universe surrounds me and fills my heart
with love. The presence and power of God in my life is love.
Godís love is unconditional; there is nothing I can do or must do to
earn it. Itís an eternal fact that sustains the world. It forms the
foundation for my self-esteem, and his love makes me worthy. When my
heart is full of Godís love, itís full of his presence and power. Itís
impossible to have unconditional love in my heart without God putting it
there. Unconditional love isnít in my chromosomes. Only God can
breathe it into my life.
God is the God of the
possible. Impossible is not found in his vocabulary, and
impossibility doesn't exist in his universe. Everything is
possible when I think the way that God thinks.
Romans 8:37-39 states: ďIn all these things we are more than conquerors
through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor
life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor
any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation
will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our
Lord.Ē This scripture states the facts of love in an unequivocal way.
There is nothing in the entire universe that can separate me from Godís
love. God is my Father, and his love floods my heart and mind and makes
me whole. There is no limit to how good my life can become when my
heart is full of Godís love.
God's plan for my life is
simple. He will take all my choices, mistakes, and failures, and
turn them into something good. My mistakes and failures are the
launching pad for God's master plan.
God loves me and accepts me the way I
am, but He loves me too much to let me stay that way. That is my
ultimate reason for hope. God is on my side. He wants to fill my heart
with his love, banish my limitations, and wash away the plague of
negative thoughts from my mind. Godís love carries away my burden of
guilt. His love not only wipes the slate clean, it also throws the
slate away. God has a plan for my life that is better than anything I
can imagine. There is no limit to how good my life can become when I
max out on the power of his love.
must see myself through Godís eyes and learn the facts of love.
Godís love never falters or fails. It will never stop pursuing me until
the day I die. No matter what I do, I cannot escape it. I can ignore
it or reject it, but it will not go away. Godís love surrounds and
envelops me. It continually reminds me that I can be one of his
children. I will either sink or swim in his ocean of love.
I need to think the way
that God thinks. I need to get in agreement with God. I need
to think abundance. I need to think possibility. I need to
think forgiveness for myself and others. I need to think freedom
from my past. I need to think release from my addictions. I
need to think recovery from my sicknesses. I need to think about
God's favor and love. I need to think the way God thinks.
My mistakes and failures
are no surprise to God. They are the launching pad for God's
master plan. God takes all of my mistakes and failures and turns
them into something good.
