Be positive. Your mind is more powerful than you think. What is down in the well comes up in the bucket. Fill yourself with positive things. – Tony Dungy

 Do you know that God is mindful of what you think? Everything about the life of a man revolves around his thought. In fact, the real personality of any man is the man on the inside of him. That’s why the Bible says, “As he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).

Our thinking is the centre of our identity, character, affections and desires, temptations, morality, and strength. It is what is inside that matter most. What is inside eventually is displayed on the outside, for the inside governs the outside. The personality of the man is a product of his thinking. What a man produces is also a function of his thought. Good thinking, good products. Your body which is the carrier of your strength also respond to your  thought. As someone rightly said, whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can also achieve. You see, the root factor is thought.

Moses sent out the twelve spies and all of them saw the same thing – giants. However, the thought of them about the giants varied. While some thought the giants could not be defeated, others had the thought of the possibility of defeating them.

Guide your heart with all diligence for out of it flows issues of life. Whether you will win or lose in life is to be determined by what you do with your mind. You can also reason with God out of the problems you are in.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Romans 12:2
