The Power of your Mind (book summary)
Many people begin a new year with resolutions to read new books, say at least one a month. By mid year, many of those resolutions have not been achieved. Sometimes, knowing what book to read is a challenge as there are so many options. If you are like me, you like to read books on recommendation. Why waste time and money reading a book only to discover midway that it is crap, when a recommendation could have guided you to a better use of your resources? Well, I'm here to help you avoid that by talking about the first book I have completed this year. If you are a Christian seeking spiritual growth, if you seek personal development, if you want to see new and good things come to fruition in your life this year, then I recommend this book.
Title - The Power of your mind

Number of pages: 176
The main message of the book is that we can recreate our world by the use of our mind.
He says, "what you become in life is largely determined by the content and quality of your mind, because with your mind you can change anything about you". The Bible says "be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind". Romans 12:2
Who you are today is a function of your mind. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Prov 23:7.
Only through God's word can the inward man be discovered and educated.
Heb 4:12 The word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The information we receive into our minds produces faith or fear, strength or weakness.
God instructs us to diligently protect/guard our minds. Prov 4:23.
God's yardstick for measuring good thoughts are listed in Phil 4:8. Our thoughts must be of things that are true (in line with God's Word), honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report, virtuous and praiseworthy.
Your thoughts affect things around you. You can, by your negative thoughts, send negative energy to your surroundings and cause evil to happen to you.
Use the Word of God (our only offensive element of the believer's armour) to pull down strongholds of negative thoughts.
When God shows us a promise, we have the right to produce it through our imagination. In recreating our world, we must first see it from within (our mind's vision). "The extent of your vision is the boundary of your blessing". Help your vision by focusing your mind on things in line with the vision.
Of course, the book addresses more, including how Abraham, Isaac and Jacob helped their visions come to pass through their imaginations. If you want to know it all, go grab your copy now. The book is available on Amazon in different formats.
Happy New Year, Happy Reading.
