All in the Mind

Hello my friends,

 

You know the mind is a powerful thing, sometimes you have to ask yourself “what am I thinking”? Bad thinking can lead to bad deeds; good thinking can lead to good deeds. When you think positive you reap positive actions when you think negative you produce negative actions. The Bible tells us that we can do all things through Christ. That is a powerful motivating statment that encourages a lot of Christians to be productive and to overcome a lot of obsticles, trials and tribulations. Just stop and think about it. When you gave your life to Christ you made him the head of your life, now I don’t know about you but I know that there are some battles I have lost but when I came to my senses and turned it over to God and realized that the battle was not mine but his, it was then that the battle was won. Worry is another one of those things we tend to think about. The bible says “do not worry about tomorrow” you know what? You are not even promised tomorrow!! think about it you may die today and yet you are worrying about tomorrow troubles. If our almighty sufficient God takes care of the birds and the bees, flower and trees how much more would he care for us. So whatever it is that you may find yourself worrying about, don’t!!! When I look back over some of my trials, tribulations doubts fears and worries it really was all in my mind and the outcome was how did I respond to those thoughts. Focus on the goodness of God and you will have victory. Who would have ever thought we would have an African American president and who knows what tomorrow will bring. Keep the faith, don’t worry and take all your burdens to the Lord in prayer. God loves you. Be blessed.

It’s All In Your Mind


Dr. Creflo A. Dollar


Your mind holds tremendous creative ability. That’s why God gave you an imagination–so that you could create mental pictures, add faith to them and see those pictures manifest in your life.
Once you have an image in your mind of something you want to do or become, nothing can stop that image from coming to pass. Whatever you meditate on will become the blueprint for your reality. Too often, though, Christians suffer from “stinking thinking.” They give the devil control of their minds by meditating on thoughts that do not line up with the Word of God. Then they reap the results of the curse because their carnal mindset produces the fruit of the flesh described in Galatians 5:19-21.
To keep the devil from gaining a foothold in your life, you must develop a sound mind that is completely controlled and directed by the Holy Spirit. In other words, you must renew your mind with the Word of God. Romans 12:2 says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” When you become born again, your spirit instantly changes; you are recreated in Christ Jesus (2 Corinthians 5:17). Yet your mind is not recreated. You must conform your thinking continually and on purpose; it is not an overnight, one-time event. Renewing your mind to God’s Word every day is vital. By reading the Scriptures and meditating on them thoroughly, your thinking will be transformed to line up with the mind of Christ. And when you have the mind of Christ, you can do anything!
When you set your mind on the Word of God, you’ll also experience soul prosperity and peace (3 John 2). The Bible says that the issues of life flow out of the heart (Proverbs 4:23). The word heart in this scripture actually refers to your soul–your mind, your will and your emotions. If you can control your mind, you can control your destiny. But it will take a quality decision on your part to dedicate your life to changing the way you think.
First Thessalonians 5:23 says, “And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” It is God’s will that your mind, will and emotions be whole, with nothing missing or broken. As a Believer, you can receive a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). It is then up to you to enforce and maintain soundness of mind by keeping your thoughts and imaginations in line with God and His Word (Isaiah 26:3).
When your mind is focused and directed by the Word, you will position yourself for success. You’ll have wisdom, discernment, insight and the ability to accomplish anything. A renewed, Word-controlled mind guarantees abundance and prosperity in every area of your life. Don’t let another day go by without a daily dose of meditation. Set your mind on the Word of God and let it become the focal point of your life and purpose!

  1. I love this! I have been guilty of worrying about the petty stuff when I should have turned it over to God.

    We got to keep the word filtering in our minds, so when we are squeezed by the world, the word comes out.
