As A Man Thinks In His Heart, So Is He

Father, in the name of Jesus. Holy is your name. Thank you for your Word. Open our understanding and let your Word deliver us and your name be glorified in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

The Word of God says ‘As a man thinks in his heart, so is he’ (Prov 23:7)

Not many people will agree that their status in life is a function of what is going on within their heart. Some people don’t even know what is called the heart. Some think that the heart is the blood pumping device in their chest because of their knowledge of biology. The heart refers to your spirit or your subconscious mind.  This truth is always true and cannot be altered and cannot be improved upon. Proverb 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of {k} life.

Whether you are rich or poor. God does not have any case to answer because of your situation. That is why God recommends that you should repent. The word repent means “think differently”

So, the way out of poverty, drug addiction, sickness etc is inside your heart. It means you can walk out on any unwanted aspect of your life.

God is the manufacturer

When God speaks sometimes, there is a tendency for someone wanting to engage him in an argument but God speaks absolute truth. He says what He means and He means what he says. God is never ambiguous. It is impossible for God to lie Titus 1:2. He does not speak to impress or suppress you. If he says “Because of your unbeliefMatthew 17:20. He is right. You are unbelieving even though you are a disciple, an apostle or an arch Bishop.

‘as a man thinks in his heart, so is he’ (Prov 23:7)

Yet, every human being has capacity or a free will to change his or her mind. To belief or not to belief.

So, where is the heart? What is in my heart? How can I change what is my heart?

Every human being has two minds. The conscious and the sub-conscious mind. The subconscious mind is your spirit.  So as a man thinks in his sub-conscious mind; so is he.

So, what is in your subconscious mind? Possibility or impossibility; Success or Failure; Past or Future; Anger or Joy; Poverty and prosperity. All these things are from the spirit and the results are what you see outside.

Repeated exposure to faith or fear

If you are exposed to something for the first time; it goes through your conscious mind temporarily and soon it may fade away. It begins to occupy your sub-conscious mind “your spirit” as you repeatedly expose yourself to it. It begins to gain ground in your heart, you begin to process it from different dimensions. In no distant time, it becomes your way of life and begins to determine your destiny.

Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. So fear cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of the devil.

Matthew 15:19 For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murder, adulteries, fornication, thefts, false witness. All these manifestations have been processed ab initio, before they are carried out or executed.

We can then reprocess this sentence “paraphrased”? So out of the heart proceed good thoughts, healing, holiness, righteousness, love, truth. With all these, your will produce victory, peace, progress and prosperity in Jesus name.

Start your thinking by seeing yourself the way God sees you. In the shoes of Jesus. As His siblings. His brother and Sister..Matthew 28:10. God is absolutely right. Who is God to me? Who is Jesus to me? Who is the Holy Ghost to me? Who am I to the I AM THAT I AM?

Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, … good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
