“What’s On Your Mind?”

Part 2:  Take Your Mind Back! (Continued)

Romans 12:2

2Do not be conformed to this world,[a] but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.


  1. You make irrational decisions when you’re NOT in control of your thoughts.


Genesis 3:6

So when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be desired to make one wise,[a] she took of its fruit and ate, and she also gave some to her husband who was with her, and he ate.


Exodus 32:1-4

1When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” 

So Aaron said to them, “Take off the rings of gold that are in the ears of your wives, your sons, and your daughters, and bring them to me.” 

So all the people took off the rings of gold that were in their ears and brought them to Aaron. 

And he received the gold from their hand and fashioned it with a graving tool and made a golden calf. And they said, “These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt!”


  1. Train your mind to focus on truth.


Philippians 4:8

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.


Psalms 119:15

15 I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways.


Psalms 143:5

I remember the days of old; I meditate on all that you have done; I ponder the work of your hands.
