Your thoughts are powerful. Every good thing that has ever been done was first created inside the mind of a man or woman. Conversely, every evil thing that has ever been done was manifested inside a mind. Everything begins as a thought, the question is do you entertain that thought?
“Those who live according to the sinful nature have their minds set on what that nature desires; but those who live in accordance with the Spirit have their minds set on what the Spirit desires” Romans 8:5
You see those who want to entertain evil thoughts have their minds on evil things. If you want to be a better person, then set your mind on being a better person. If you want to be happy, then set your mind on being happy. The mind is an incredible instrument given to us by God that can be used for good or for evil. Integrity and your character defines who you are and it begins in your thoughts.
“Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess” Hebrews 3:1
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
