Good Thinking Belongs Naturally to the Image of God

Good Thinking Belongs Naturally to the Image of God

"Commit thy works unto the LORD, and thy thoughts shall be established." Prov. 16:3. The best thing you can do for your mind is to give yourself up to the Lord. The Holy Spirit whom He sends to those who obey Him will not teach you to make a fool of your self, but will teach you soundness [healthiness] of mind. Sin perverts the thought process for sin separates us from Christ, the wisdom of God. Giving yourself up to God does not teach you to live without thinking, but teaches you to think God's thoughts after Him.

2Ti 1:7 "For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind."

Eph. 5:15-17 "See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is."

Pr 1:7 "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction."

Isaiah 35:8-10:  "And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein. No lion shall be there, nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon, it shall not be found there; but the redeemed shall walk there: And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away."

Pr 28:26 He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be deliver
