There is a lot of influencing going on in the world today.
Government leaders work overtime to influence the thought of their citizens. Social media is rife with influencers hired to sway public opinion about products and causes.
Some types of influence are blatant, in your face, and other forms are sneaky and hidden from obvious view.
It can be instructive to ask, “What is influencing my thought? Am I thinking for myself, or am I under the influence of someone else who may not have my best interests in mind?”
The best influence always comes from God. God is good, God is Truth, and whatever direction the Mind of Truth takes you, will be progressive and healthy.
If someone else’s personal sense, selfish want, questionable desire, or ulterior motives are influencing your thoughts and actions, the outcome may be poor, or regrettable.
When God is doing the influencing, the effect will always be good.
So, do yourself a favor today. Let the Mind of God be the only influence over your thoughts and actions.
When God is the one Influencer behind your decision-making, you’ll be happy with the results.
God is a good influence that always takes you in a good direction.
