The Power of Your Thoughts

By Marilyn Kyere

The Bible teaches about the power of the mind, our thoughts and how we can transform outcomes by what we think. As Christians, we can sometimes get distracted by current events around us and forget that focusing on the word of God will bring us the peace we need. In Philippians 4:8, Apostle Paul writes, “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 in these things.” We must become mindful of the things we watch, the conversations we engage in and words we allow our ears to hear because Satan likes to put negative thoughts in our minds. We can combat these negative thoughts by going into the scriptures and reading what God says about us and meditating on these truths. Friends, we need to constantly fight to maintain a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:7 says, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, love and of a sound mind.”
