More Biblical Reflections of the Law of Attraction

June 4, 2020

I often discuss the power of the Law of Attraction, and the amazing effects it can have on your life. More and more people are beginning to see this. However, sometimes my fellow Christians cringe at this idea that we can actually control the quality of our lives with our thoughts and emotions. After all, we are supposed to leave control of our lives up to God.

I understand this hesitance, especially because I was there at one point. I think so many people have problems with the Law of Attraction because of how it can be used in a negative way. Many people use it in a greedy manner to try to gain as much as they can for themselves. People see that and are turned off by it. I tend to see the Law of Attraction in a positive way and like to promote ways to use it that way. I understand and believe that God should be in ultimate control of our lives. However, he has also given us free will. I believe using that free will to ensure the quality of our thoughts and states of being is using it in a responsible and productive manner.

I have written several articles providing biblical examples of the Law of Attraction. I strongly believe that this law is biblical and as true as the laws of gravity, electricity, or any other. As I research this topic further, I continue to find more examples in the Bible. If you are not familiar, the Law of Attraction states that the quality of your outer life is directly related to the quality of your inner life…your thoughts and emotions. When you think positive, high-quality thoughts and maintain high-level emotions, the life you live is also high quality and rewarding. If you think negative thoughts and your emotions are low-level, you receive more of the same in life.

The most recent verse I found was actually by accident I was looking for something totally different. It comes from Proverbs 27:19 and it says, “As water reflects the face, so one’s life reflects the heart.” To me, that describes what Law of Attraction is all about. Your outer life reflects what your heart is like. If it is positive and loving, your life will reflect that. If it is negative and nasty, your life will reflect that.

The wonderful thing is that we completely control the quality of our hearts! You can use the God-given free will I mentioned earlier to “guard your heart” (a verse I mentioned in another recent article) and control what you are thinking and feeling. Just as sure as you will fall if you jump off a bridge or receive electricity if you put a plug into an electrical outlet, you will manifest positive experiences if you think positive thoughts. If you feel negative emotions all of the time, you will find yourself in negative situations all of the time. It’s your choice.

As I’ve believed for a long time, and as this verse confirms, your outer life is a reflection of your inner life. Even if you’ve consistently allowed negative thoughts to dominate your mind, this concept doesn’t have to be one you fear. You have full control and ability to monitor your thoughts and feelings. Isn’t that easier than trying to change people and situations that you can’t control? I’m not saying that everything will be totally perfect in your life. God says you will have trials, and negative people aren’t going away. However, I find it empowering that by simply taking control of your inner world, you can make your outer world a very positive place for you and those around you. Once again I ask, what is easier to manage…the billions of other people around you and in our world, the unlimited circumstances in you can encounter, or your own thoughts and feelings? I’ll let you decide 🙂


A Biblical Perspective on the Law of Attraction

January 27, 2020

One of my main goals in this space is to show how the ideas on Law of Attraction and those in the Bible go hand in hand. I firmly believe that the Law of Attraction, and dare I say many of the laws of science are Biblical.

In essence, the Law of Attraction says that what we receive in life is a direct reflection of the thoughts we think in our minds and the corresponding emotions we feel in our hearts. Basically, if we think and maintain positive thoughts, along with emotions such as love, joy, and gratitude, we will experience them in our lives.

I have studied this and lived it enough to know that it alone is totally true. As a Christian, I have found plenty of Bible verses to show that this is not just some modern-day thinkers trying to brainwash people into New Age philosophy. It is actual Biblical truth. It gets a bad name because many people use this law (which is as true a law as gravity, electricity, etc.) in a greedy fashion instead of using it for the greater good of humanity.

One key Bible verse that I’ve reflected on recently, is from Proverbs 4:23. The verse says, “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”. An even simpler version says, “More than anything you guard, protect your mind, for life flows from it.” I also love the Expanded Bible version which says, “Be careful what you think [L Above all that you guard, protect your heart], because ·your thoughts run your life [L life flows from it].

In my opinion, it can’t be any more clear that there is a direct correlation between the thoughts we think, what we feel in our heart and the quality of our lives. As a Christian, I understand that God’s will is supreme. I know that life is not always great, and there are reasons (often unknown) for that. Overall though, it is a simple fact, and if you don’t want to believe in the Law of Attraction information that the world supplies, go with the Biblical information that God Himself provides for us.

I will say it again, and I believe it more firmly every day. If you want a high quality, joyful life, then think high-quality thoughts. Follow the Biblical advice of thinking on whatever is good, honorable, and worthy of praise. To experience full joy, start from within. Be grateful for the big things and even the little ones. Then you will experience situations in your life that will be joyful for you and for those around you. When you create positive emotions, you will be given life situations that will also create those positive emotions.

I can write books on this topic (I actually have), and I hate to limit it to a short space here. However, as I further reflected on this verse, I found other articles that communicate the same message. I share them with you here…..

How to Guard Your Heart

What Does Guard Your Heart Mean in the Bible?

Remember what the verse says…protect your heart because your life flows from it. Be sure to think beautiful, joyful thoughts. Then the Bible says the same type of life will follow. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
