"Words will produce your thinking. Your thinking will produce your emotions or feelings. Your feelings will produce your decisions. Your decisions will produce your actions. Your actions will produce your character. And your character will bring you to your destiny. That's a basic sequence of how life works. But now watch this. Negative words will produces negative emotions... [which will produce negative everything including destiny]. Everything starts with words. The Word of God will produce thinking that will line up with the Word of God. Abraham... got told get away from your father's house and your relatives. I said, 'Lord, is that love to tell a man to leave his relatives?' Well get away from those who are framing your thinking. Get out of that place where they are framing your thinking. Words will frame your thinking. So who are hanging around? What are you listening to? What's framing your thinking? Are you allowing... [negative friends and family ] to frame your the way you think about things? Because folks as a man thinketh so is he. The way you think will determine whether you walk in the Spirit or walk in the flesh. Because when you get down to the bottom line walking in the flesh is a way of thinking that opposes the Word of God. Walking in the Spirit is a way of thinking that goes along with the Word of God.
The Word of God will produce thinking that will line up with the Word of God. And thinking that lines up with the Word of God will produce how you feel - feelings and emotions, that line up with the Word of God. And emotions that line up with the Word of God will produce Godly decisions. And Godly decisions that line up with the Word of God will produce Godly actions. And Godly actions that line up with the Word of God will produce Godly habits. And Godly habits that line up with the Word of God will produce God character. And you know character is doing what's right because its right and you do it right. Character is what people have come to expect from you. And you will never go above the level of your character. So Godly habits produce Godly character and Godly character will produce a Godly destination which will take you where you are supposed to be. Now if you find you are not in a place where you are supposed to be, just back step. If you don't like your destiny, change your character. If you don't like your character, change your habits... [and so forth to words that I am around] that frame my thoughts. See you don't have to be defeated by the devil for one split second. but we've got to take responsibility for our part in this life and do the things we know to do." - Creflo Dollar
