We go in the direction of our minds. Our mind is the gateway to the heart. This is true regardless of what enters our mind. Whatever enters your mind can be negative or positive. It doesn't matter. What enters your mind will guide you. This is why it's so important to guard what goes into our minds.
Our mind is made up of two basic parts. Without getting into much detail regarding the brain, or minds are made up of our conscious mind and our subconscious mind.
Our conscious mind, of course, where we have conscious thoughts and make conscious decisions.
Our subconscious is where all of our beliefs, perceptions, etc., are stored. Roughly 90% of our decisions are made from our subconscious mind. The important thing to remember, is you will go in the direction your subconscious wants you to go.
Your subconsious mind is also there to provide direction, validation and answers to questions you'll have. I'll go over this more in another post, but just remember, you'll go the direction your subconscious wants to take you.
Therefore, it's very important what you feed your subconscious. The scripture says the word of God is like a two-edged sword. This is described in Hebrews 4:12. That scripture says the Word of God ..."is like a two-edged sword and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart." In other words, the Word of God is able to penetrate deep into your heart and mind.
The accusations and condemnations, can pierce, though not as deep as the Word of God, but they can pierce into your subconscious mind. Your negative beliefs, thoughts and decrees you've made to yourself, whether negative or postive, can pierce deep into your subconsious.
Be careful what you let enter your mind. Scripture instructs us to be "...be transformed by the renewing of our minds" (Romans 12:2).
Your mind is key to transformation.
