I have discovered a new song, well at least a new song to me, I Know Who I Am. It is sung by Sinach. Every time I hear this song, I have to dance — I have added the YouTube link so you can dance, too!
This is a song of declaration of who we are in Christ. When we declare the truth of who we are, there is a response. Our thoughts, our emotions, and our bodies aligning with the truth brings a response. Both science and the Bible agree — truth breathes life.
In the very simplest form, Dr. Caroline Leaf describes this process in her book Switch on Your Brain.
“ Research shows that 75-98% of our mental, physical, and behavioral illness comes from one’s thought life.”
What is really being said here is —
The thoughts we choose to think determine our health.
Dr. Leaf continues, “Science and Scripture both show that we are wired for love and optimism, and so when we react by thinking negatively and making negative choices, the quality of our thinking suffers…”
The Scripture states, “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7 NKJV). It is our thought life which determines our capacity. So we must know truth and be able to declare who we are as opposed to the lies.
