The power of the mind.

The human mind is amazing. It has great power to do good or evil. It has the power to shape a person’s life. What we think about is what we are or what we do.
Now some quotes.
- “Let the mind of the master be the master of your mind.”
Phil. 2:5 KJV “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus.”
NIV “Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus.” To have Christ’s attitude we must have His mind, which will only come from His Word.
- "Whatever you hold in your mind will tend to occur in your life. If you continue to believe as you have always believed, you will continue to act as you have always acted. If you continue to act as you have always acted, you will continue to get what you have always gotten. If you want different results in your life or your work, all you have to do is change your mind.
"Movies can influence a person’s behavior. Kids have watched violence and immorality and then have gone out and put these things into practice.
It is sad to think, however, that the good does not affect us as much as the evil does. Of course, we see less good than we do evil on the movie screen.
- "If you wish to know the mind of a man, listen to his words.
"What a person talks about is what he is thinking. Why do we not talk about the Word of God and Christ? Could it be that we are not thinking about them?
- "Out of sight, out of mind." This is often true.
- "A stale mind is the devil’s breadbox." An empty mind or a stale mind is an open door to the devil.
- "The body manifests what the mind harbors."
- "Your mind is what makes everything else work." ~ Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
"A man is known by the company his mind keeps." ~ Thomas Bailey Aldrich (1836-1907) American writer, editor, poet
- "An active mind cannot exist in an inactive body." ~ George Patton (1885-1945)
- "If you would perfect your body, guard your mind." ~ James Allen (1864-1912) English author of As A Man Thinketh
- "If you don’t control your mind, someone else will." ~ John Allston
- "She unbent her mind afterwards---over a book." ~ Charles Lamb (1775-1834) British writer, poet, essayist & critic.
- "Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body." ~ Joseph Addison (1672-1719) English writer, statesman, publisher, essayist & poet.
As you set out to rid your mind of years of impure thoughts, remember that merely trying to stop thinking bad thoughts will not work. You must fill your mind with the Word of God. There is no alternative plan. We overcome the father of lies by choosing truth!
