Life in our Mind!

God has designed our minds to respond to Life! Our minds thrive when we are full of life!
In the same way our minds are destroyed when we allow poor thinking to rule our minds.
Philippians 4:8 NKJV
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
God instructs us to care for our minds!
Romans 12:2 NKJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
Philippians 4:8
Poor thinking is responsible for the majority of our struggles!
our thoughts limit us! you will never go farther than you think possible in your mind!
Our mindsets can limit us!
We need the proper mindset that will walk in submission to God.

We need Healthy Godly thinking!

1 Corinthians 2:14 NKJV
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
1 Corinthians
The opposite of Godly thinking is poor thinking. Poor thinking is described in the bible as foolishness. You will not enjoy and abundant life if you do not bring your mind and thoughts into alignment with God.
Proverbs 29:11 NKJV
A fool vents all his feelings, But a wise man holds them back.
Let’s see what the bible says about what we need to not be foolish
Proverbs 18:2 NKJV
A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.

Be of a Teachable mindset

You must desire to learn, to examine, take a closer/deeper look!
don’t jump to conclusions or assume. Pray, bring your thoughts captive to God!
Don’t think you know it all, be humble. Allow yourself to be trained! discipled.

Be of a Humble mindset

Proverbs 28:26 NKJV
He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered.
We don’t want to have a mindset that believes it can’t be fooled or be wrong. Abundant life in our mindset doesn’t mean we are infallible it means we are in close communication with God. its not about being right or wrong its about keeping up with God! As we keep our perspective clear we will be delivered form the pitfalls foolishness brings.

Have a surrendered Mindset

Proverbs 19:3 NKJV
The foolishness of a man twists his way, And his heart frets against the Lord.
Ecclesiastes 7:29 NKJV
Truly, this only I have found: That God made man upright, But they have sought out many schemes.”
Ecclesiastes 7:25 NKJV
I applied my heart to know, To search and seek out wisdom and the reason of things, To know the wickedness of folly, Even of foolishness and madness.
You don’t have to get your way!
Have a mindset that is open! content and full!
We don’t want to be immature in our mindsets and think that because we want it God will give it to us.
Our minds will become manipulators and we will rage against God!
Don’t twist things.

Be honest!

Godly Thinking will lead you to Abundant Life!

Philippians 4:8 NKJV
Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.
Philippians 4:8
Romans 12:2 NKJV
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.
