Keys to Right Thinking

A Wise Mind

  True wisdom comes from God. The Scriptures instruct us to apply our heart (mind) to understanding (Proverbs 2:2). That means, we must yield our minds to the understanding and wisdom that comes from God's Word. When we do this we will be able to discern the things we read, watch, and listen to. In our world today, not everything that is called Christian is necessarily biblical. In fact, many of the materials we find in Christian bookstores, including those by some of the most popular authors are doctrinally incorrect and tainted with mere human philosophy.
  The Scripture says, "All things are lawful unto me, but I will not be brought under the power of any" (1Corinthians 6:12).  How many Christians have been seduced by ideas they have heard, seen, or read about? This is especially true at times of struggle when we are at our weakest and desperate for answers. But if we desire victory, and a true anointing from God in our lives then we must get our wisdom and understanding from the pure Word of God and then obey it. Wisdom is not only what we know about the Bible, but how we allow it to govern every aspect of our daily lives, beginning with our thoughts.

The question is not if you are a master of the Word, but is the Word a master of you?
