“Set your mind on the things above, not on earthy thing” Colossians 3:2
Your mind is so crucial to your spiritual and physically well being. Your mind is like the central nervous system to your spirit. It controls everything you do and most of us do not understand it’s power and strength. Your mind ultimately shapes your life. It is in your mind where your thoughts, dreams and desires and processed and become a reality. Everything that manifests in your life, words, actions all came through your mind first. A renewed mind, is a renewed life and this is why is it isn’t optional, Romans 12:2. The way we renew our minds is with studying the word. No power is greater than the spirit which lies inside the word of God, Hebrews 4:12. Also the Word of God is life unto us, knowing the Word means knowing life, and ultimately Jesus. Once Jesus is Lord over your mind there is no how anything not of God will manifest in your life.
Once your mind is defeated you are defeated and that is why mental illnesses are one of the hardest things to overcome. It conditions your mind to think a certain way almost against your own will. No matter how much you fight against it you just can’t break free from it’s oppression, why? because your mind is in bondage.
Wining the battle over my mind has been one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. The truth is that it can only be won by God. But you control want goes into your mind through your senses. What you hear, what you think and what you speak, they all influence and condition your mind to think in a certain way. That it why the bible says as a man thinks (your mind) in his heart so he shall be and out of the abundance of ones heart so the mouth speaks. (Luke 6:49) What you feed your mind and heart becomes your reality. Your mind and your heart are connected and they determine the success of your life, so you must take care of them and protect them. That is why it is so important to fill your mind with the things of God and set it on the things above.
Stay Blessed x
