How do you think?

"For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace." Romans 8:6

Do you want life changing peace of mind?

Does worry and anxiety have a grip on your life?

Are you at peace with others, how about yourself?

Is your trust in God?

Are you looking for a way, where there seems o be no way, and trying to make sense of it all?

You can have emotional stability, and gain confidence, as well as have a life long security and well being.

All this can be yours even in the midst of your storm.

Do you have wrong thoughts, who is in control of your thoughts?

Who is in control of your life?
"For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ." I Corinthians 2:16

Stop, think for a moment are you walking in victory?

Are you in control or is a situation that you are facing in control?

Do you have negative controlling thoughts that never come to an ending point?

All of these circumstances have a downfall, they are going to let you down in some form or fashion.

Daily life itself can change real fast this is why God needs to be full control of our life.

We have to think like God, to do so we need to stay in God's Word.

All truth resides in God ,God alone.

We are not allowed to let those carnal thoughts of negativity in, but to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.

We are to have thoughts that bring life, happiness, and victorious living.

All these thoughts can only come from the Holy Spirit, for the Lord, He is pure and good.

"For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting." Galatians 6:8

We must renew our mind, so our thinking will change along with our confession.

Renewing our mind is basically changing our mindset to His.

We need to let Him know that we are trusting Him by letting Him be in control of our life, thus showing that we belong to him.

When we renew our mind with God's word, He will give us clarity of thought, what we choose to think about, and the kind of thoughts we have.

Most of us are not what or who we think we are: our thinking has got to be changed to realize that with each difficulty we can not solve it on our own.

We have to have complete confidence that He is able to take care of any circumstance, any situation, any difficulty that has come our way.

He know where we are every second, every minute of everyday.

He is bigger than our biggest problem, difficulty, or circumstance in our life.

Nothing is too big for Him to handle.

"Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything to hard for me?" Jeremiah 32:27

What can you do when you have been poured into by all the negativity of life's events?

You can reprogram your mind through God's Word.

We all have the right to choose whether or not to let our circumstances, or problems over whelm us, or to put our trust in the Lord.

God will help us to keep our mind focused on something else other than our problems.

We must first make the effort, take that first step.

We can not conquer what we don't confront.

Don't get distracted by that bump in the road, that problem, that circumstance. Our mind is a war zone, it is unsafe to go in there alone. Pastor Steve Solomon

Call upon Him for clarity of thought on the inside of your mind, He makes an excellent doctor.

"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." Romans 12:2

"And be renewed in the Spirit of your mind." Ephesians 4:23

When we start renewing our mind, our thinking will start to change along with our confession.

We must fill our minds with what is true, pure, righteous and praise worthy.

We need to meditate on the good things, which will keep our minds fully occupied by good ideas, concepts, or insights.

"Finally, brethern, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." Philippians 4:8

We need to think about our Lord, the King of Glory, and rely upon Him with faith and trust.

Meditation on the scriptures will help us with our thought process.

As we meditate or memorize scripture we are slowly renewing our mind to that of Christ.

When we memorize it, we commit it to memory, and or learn by heart, as we meditate we are thinking on it quietly.

We need both of these attributes to learn to let go our own desires, and to have His will in our thoughts.

These two together will help take captive all those negative thoughts or images.

We must refuse not to dwell upon negative thoughts, and instead think on the plans and purpose God has for your life.

We can not praise him enough when we start thinking about His goodness and greatness.

"Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ."
II Corinthians 10:5

"Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable." Psalm 145:3

Who is the only one who can cure your mind from the inside?

The thoughts that are not in agreement with God's Word, is the enemy trying to produce bad seed, we need to pay attention to our inner thoughts.

Such thoughts as I am in a bad mood today and don't know why or I am never going to amount to anything or I can't do this it's too hard.

If you believe statements like these you are believing a lie from the adversary. He wants you to think that you can't change, but we can.

"I can do all things which strengthen me." Philippians 4:13

We do not have to settle for anything less!

Never settle for less than that which God wants you to have. Our problems are on the inside, our thoughts, and our fears, along with our attitude.

What is on the inside will eventually come out.

"The preparations of the heart in man, and the answer of the tongue, is from the Lord." Proverbs 16:1

If we choose not to let God control our life, then Satan will control our actions, and our lives.

Choose you this day whom ye shall serve, man cannot have two masters.

We have to acknowledge God by telling Him that we are interested in what He thinks.

We have got to meditate on God's will - His Word.

The more that we meditate, spend time in God's Word the more that He will flow through our life.

We need to release our self to God, it is by our struggles that we will grow, and gain confidence.

He will meet us right where we are in our walk of faith.

Our faith will grow as we learn to completely trust in Him.

My friend there is an answer for you!

Are you willing to take that first step of faith?

Are you willing to put your will down, to be obedient and take up His will?

You can have peace of mind in the midst of your storm.

One cannot have God's blessings and pursue the desires of their flesh.

We have to have that personal relationship with the Father.

We need to let Him lead us by His Spirit, cause with Him there is more to life.

Everything we are and have are came from Him first, why not give it all back.

He is always present in all those of everyday life.

He will take away those stresses of everyday life that we can't handle anymore.

All we simply have to do is ask Him to take all the negativity from our mind, and to restore to us the peace that belongs to us.

The peace of God will do a new thing in your life.

Trust Him, and everything that we undertake, and He will bring us through.

We have to fill our mind with good thoughts not negative ones.

When we apply good thoughts into our life, it will also help the inner man.

You can grow emotionally and physically with peace, joy and calmness knowing God.

Remember that our thoughts determine our outcome.

What are you waiting for?

Go ahead take that first step of faith today.

"This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: For the thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success." Joshua 1:8
