God's Word is alive!
Jesus said, His words were spirit and they were life. True life always produces good fruit. Good fruit consist of things that promote a vibrant victorious Christian life.
In order for the human mind to function effectively according to the original intent of it's creator it must possess true life. Jesus declared in scripture that He was the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Having a sound mind is not possible without Christ. Jesus is the foundation from which all true life flows. The absences of life and light is death and darkness. When the mind has been darkened through the deceptive works of Satan we see people with troubling thoughts and guilt producing imaginations.
God is the one who created the mind, therefore, He is the only one qualified to fix it. God is the only one with the proper tools and equipment to bring lasting change to a weary unrenewed mind. God is a good God. He is a loving, gentle Father. God is not the author of confusion but of peace. He is not the one troubling your mind, He wants to renew or restore it back to His original intent. Our minds were created to think good thoughts just like our Heavenly Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things [are] honest, whatsoever things [are] just, whatsoever things [are] pure, whatsoever things [are] lovely, whatsoever things [are] of good report; if [there be] any virtue, and if [there be] any praise, think on these things.
The original creation of the mind by God was for good and not evil. God never intended for our mind to be an instrument for darkness to dominate or house its ungodly thoughts and imaginations.
Have you ever heard the saying, “the mind is the devils playground or the devils workshop?”
Well let me set the record straight, the mind was not created to be the devils workshop or his playground. Our minds were created by God as good ground and a workshop for His word to thrive, build, plant, create and orchestrate His will. We are to now think and imagine like God.
1 Corinthians 2:16 ...but we have the mind of Christ.
The only thing that is capable of changing our minds back to God's original intent is the one thing that created it in the first place. God upholds all things by the word of His power, Hebrews 1:3. In the beginning in Genesis we see God creating things with His words. The only force on this earth that can change the mind of man for the good is the Word of God.
For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Remember God loves you and does not want you mind to be troubled or stressed, so, allow Him to begin the process of transformation in your life today. You will never regret the eternal results that await you. It is your time to live a life filled with perfect peace.
