You should be in control of your mind. Your mind was not given to you to run your life. No!
Go gave you a mind to help manifest in the natural the richness He has deposited in your spirit man.
However, if you let the mind, it will run your life! You’re not about to do that, are you?
Your mind needs attention and care. If you don’t attend to it, it will grow all kinds of weeds and become wild. And who wants to have a wild, unrestrained, and undisciplined mind?
To understand the importance of your mind, you must first come to grips with this truth:
You are a spirit. You have a soul. And you live in a body.
“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
(1Thessalonians 5:23, NIV)
Your spirit, at new birth, was recreated, in the exact likeness and holiness of God.
It’s perfect, complete, full of love and faith and hope and joy. The life and the ability and the glory of God dwell within your spirit. There’s heaven in your heart.
Your soul houses your mind, emotions and will.
Your mind is a function of the soul, and entails all the thought processes, such as reason, perception, imagination, memory, etc
And while your spirit is completely recreated new, your soul isn’t. It must be renewed with the Word of God. It must be brought under the leadership of your spirit.
Why is taking control of your mind so important to your life?
Because it holds the key to every other aspects of your life. Your soul is the link between the spiritual and physical realms. And in order to manifest in the physical those beautiful realities in our spirit, the soul has to be put in shape.
the state of your soul determines your health, well-being and the prosperity of other areas of your life.
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers.”
(3John 2, AMP)
If your mind is sick, your physical health too suffers. You may be wondering how the mind can get sick. Well, such emotions as envy, jealousy, fear, anger, etc make the mind sick. And a sick mind produces a sick body:
“A calm and undisturbed mind and heart are the life and health of the body, but envy, jealousy, and wrath are like rottenness of the bones.”
(Proverbs 14:30, AMP)
Envy, jealousy, bitterness, guilt, fear, loneliness, depression eats away at your physical health. So to live in good health, you must give attention to your soul. Cause it to be prosperous.
A prosperous soul is one that’s aligned with the truths, perspective, promises, and blessings of God. It’s one that’s devoid of fear, envy, jealousy, bitterness, etc.
Instead, it’s full of faith, joy, love, hope, etc
You bring the soul to this point by daily exposing your mind to the Word of God. And by practice or doing the Word.
You can manifest in your life vibrant spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health. And you can live in God’s overflowing abundance in every area of your life. The key is a prosperous soul! (3John2)
