We tend to lose interest in a lot of things because we don’t see any good in them. This can also lead us to commit sins against God. Bad thoughts are detrimental to our well-being and the Bible explains in the book of Proverbs 23:7 that what a man constantly thinks is what he attracts. Therefore when we constantly have bad thoughts, they manifest evil and negativity in our lives.

 Many people detest negative individuals because negative forces can be very strong and cause bad luck and evil to not only the person with the negative mindset but to others around them. However, as believers, we must know that this is not the will of God for us and he is always ready to help us fight away every evil thought that is always tormenting us. Let us proceed to apply the scriptures and pray against every bad thought in our minds and for the grace of God to keep them away from reoccurring.
