Music is something different to everyone in my opinion. It’s always been an expression of the individuals’ personal and true thoughts. It therefore is at times infiltrated with the negative thoughts of the person who is singing them that is why I find myself at times either changing the word to be something positive or I don’t say the words at all. I completely recommend doing this especially for those who listen to Rap, R&B, and Country music as they are some of the main supporters of this negativity which is spreading like wildfire to the youth of today. They don’t really understand the power of their words and so they are singing these song and looking up-to these people who don’t understand it themselves. Such as in Young Jeezys’ song I Luv It he says that he knows that when he goes to Hell that he’s going to fry. This has become his confession but don’t take my word for it listen carefully to every word that you say and what you hear. You’ll actually find that 99.9% of the music that you listen to is infiltrated with negativity. This opens a whole new door to realising what you have thought and placed into your life by the way of your eyes yourears and your mouth. After-all, out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. Whatever you think about all the time will eventually show up in your life. My mother read me this power quote the other day and it reads:
Concentrate on happy things.
You must be careful what you notice, talk about, or give your attention to. Because, that is what you are identifying with and, that is what you will bring into your life.
Anything that you think about all the time or pay attention to and you do not cast down will eventually show up in your life. If you only think of happy things and positive things those are the things that will show up. Which means that at some point and time in your life either you or someone who had/has spiritual authority over you (such as parent or whoevers’ care God placed you in) thought into your life. Whatever you fear will eventually show up also. I’ve heard many people say when a tragic thing happens in their live s that it was the thing that they greatly feared. Job says in Job 3:25
For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.
If you read Job carefully and take everything in life as having a spiritual and a natural meaning you should be able to read the Bible not as a historical book but as the book you should be able to model it according to how you want it to turn out. Whenever, it is an established pattern of thinking only those things can show up. That is why those that are rich in their minds first are able to continue to be rich in their external lives.
