Christian Meditation For Mind Control – Who Is In Charge Of Your Thoughts Anyway?
Why Not Take Control of Your Thought Life?
about taking charge of our thought life.
Think about it?
Thousands of thoughts pop into
our minds daily.
Many of these thoughts are NOT our own and
come from the constant bombardment of
media ads, newspapers, the internet, other people, etcetera.
I’m sure you would agree that most of these thoughts are not healthy and desperately need managed.
The fact that our minds are constantly bombarded with unwanted garbage should be a major concern for us. Why? Because our thoughts direct our lives.
Christian Meditation for Mind Control
The Bible has much to say about the impact our minds and thoughts have on our lives. The importance of meditating on what is true, pure, and right is encouraged over and over. This is to help us stay empowered with proper mind control and right thinking. Thinking right leads to right acting.
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.”
— Proverbs 4:23
“Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.”
— Matthew 12:34
“For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
If our thoughts determine our lives, then we can change our circumstances by first changing our thoughts. How do we go about doing that? Well it does take work, but the good news is that it is quite simple.
Thought Life Check-up
The first step is to give our thought life a check-up. We need to take time to actually focus on what we are thinking.
Take note and evaluate the thoughts you have over the next few days.
- Thoughts about yourself (abilities, appearance, health, etc.)
- Thoughts about others (God, relationships, etc.)
- Thoughts about work
- Thoughts about any and all other areas of your life
As you do this check-up and evaluate your thoughts, consider which ones are healthy, positive, productive, and beneficial to your life. Ask yourself if they are going to help you move forward in a positive direction? Then decide if you will allow them to stay or give them the boot.
For example: You may have thoughts of being a financial failure and constantly failing at everything you do. Your mind may replay past events of failure and come up with many reasons why you are sure to fail in the future and always live in poverty.
What does this type of negative thinking do? It takes away all hope of being financially successful and pursuing prosperity, and on top of that it lets you think you should settle for poverty.
By acknowledging that that kind of negative thinking is only destructive, you can then choose to put a stop to it by replacing it with thoughts that will be profitable and beneficial to your life.
Mind Control for Right Thinking and Right Living
The next step, after you’ve given your thought life a check-up and determined which thoughts no longer have permission to reside in your mind, is to take charge and do some mind control clean-up.
In order to remove negative, damaging, unwanted thoughts, they need to be replaced with positive, encouraging, or productive thoughts. We can’t just tell an unwanted thought to stop and go away. We have to also replace it with a favorable thought.
For example: You tell those thoughts of financial failure to stop and you take control of your mind by replacing those destructive thoughts with prosperous thoughts. This might be something such as: My God desires above all things that I prosper and be in health, even as my soul prospers. (3 John 2)
God’s Word is full of promises of success. He wants us to be blessed to be a blessing to others. We are encouraged to meditate on thoughts that will lead us into right living and success. However, God won’t just step in our minds and clean up our thinking for us. It is something we must do; with His help.
Take Charge of Your Thoughts
Keep in mind: Your thoughts are just that, they are your thoughts and they belong to you. So why not be in charge and take control of them?
Refuse to allow your mind to focus on thoughts of negative past experiences, or current difficult challenges, or any other discouraging thoughts that fill your mind with failure. Refuse to keep your life directed toward continual disappointment.
Bottom line: As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Decide which thoughts you want to keep, and then replace the destructive thoughts with positive ones that will lead you to success. Meditate on success scriptures from the Word of God and take charge of your thought life with Christian meditation for the ultimate mind control.
May you change your life one thought at a time and enjoy a life of growing prosperity!
God bless you –
