If you place a cup ON a table, it can be removed.
If you put ON a piece of clothing, it can be taken off.
Whatever is put ON can be taken off.
What’s ON your mind?
Our own thoughts can poison our mind and create chemical imbalances that distort reality. In other words you can put an entire story together in your mind and it not be reality. You become the writer, executive producer, the main character and supporting cast and then you sit back and become the viewer, just watching how it all unfolds- all from the wrong thoughts.
It is our thoughts about Jesus and what He has done for us or perhaps has not done (on our mental timeline) that even makes us believe that He is not for us, nothing good ever happens for us, or that nothing good that we desire will happen to us.
We have to change what is on our mind and we have the power to control that.
- Find the good in everything.
- Change your acquaintances.
- Speak positive affirmations over your life.
- Love unconditionally without expecting it in return (that’s when the hurt comes in).
- CAST DOWN that thought.
Evil thoughts are a byproduct of what is in our heart and it ultimately taints our spirit so that it does not align and connect with the Holy Spirit.
Guard your heart. What comes from your heart poisons your thoughts, your thoughts become words that you speak, and your words have power so that what you speak is what is manifested in your life.
“Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts.” Proverbs 4:23 GNT
There is no reason to drown from within when you have the natural capacity to swim above any issue.
“There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man.” Mark 7:15, 21-23 NKJV
Take off your old thoughts and renew your mind.
“Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. Put on your new nature, created to be like God—truly righteous and holy.”
Ephesians 4:23-24 NLT
