RENEWING YOUR MIND
A happy heart is good medicine, and a cheerful mind works healing. You may think you need to experience healing first in order to gain a cheerful heart and mind. However, you have a powerful source of happiness within you: the Holy Spirit! He can empower you to live above your circumstances. When your heart is heavy, ask Him to fill it with buoyant cheerfulness. He takes pleasure in doing this as you entrust yourself into His capable care.
Your heart and mind are intricately connected. It is impossible to have a happy heart when your mind is full of negative thoughts. Left to itself, your mind can become “the devil’s workshop”—pulling you away from Me. This is why you need to exert control over your thinking. Ask the Holy Spirit to help you; invite Him to control your mind. Look at your thoughts in His holy Light, and reject those that are unfitting for a child of the King.
I will help you replace lies and partial truths with absolute truth. As I refresh your mind with promises of My constant Love and the eternal home awaiting you, heavenly Light shines powerfully into your heart. Bask in this cheery Light, while My healing Presence permeates you deeply—all the way down to your bones!
A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.
[Proverbs 17:22 amp]
“And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever.”
[John 14:16 nkjv]
The mind of sinful man is death, but the mind controlled by the Spirit is life and peace. Romans 8:6 “In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.”
[John 14:2 nkjv]
