Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

The Lord deals through your heart, but Satan deals through your mind. Satan chose your mind because it is the womb of your spirit realm. Avenues into your spirit realm include memory, reason, conscience, imagination, and affection. Your mind has no blocker or delete function and there is no built in filtering mechanism. The only filter available for our particular model of mind is offered through one provider and that is by the Grace of God.

Your filter is the Word of God, provided and quickened by His Spirit. If you are experiencing mind battles and an innumerable amount of bad thoughts, then apply your filter by His Grace. Think on good things. Your mind will still be affected by the thoughts Satan injects, so it takes hard work to redirect your thoughts, but it works every time.

When something comes into your mind that is negative, redirect your thinking onto Christ and His Word. When you do that He can give you answers, get you through tough times, and, most importantly, project His love through you onto others.

Think on good things.

55-1115 - "Blind Bartimaeus"

Just around the corner, when you get to thinking about Divine healing, get to thinking about Christ… Keep Him on your mind. “If there be any praise, if there be any virtue,” the Bible says, “think on these things.”

If any thought comes by, “Well, maybe it couldn’t be so. Maybe…” Get it off your mind right quick. Think on things that’s positive. Never let a negative thought pass through. The… Don’t let it stop, anyhow, if it starts to. Keep your thoughts positive: Jesus.

30 Don’t think, setting there in a wheelchair, you, that you’re hopeless, helpless. You’re not. Don’t let that negative thought ever pass through. Don’t let it anchor. You can’t help it from going through your mind (That’s right.), but don’t let it stop.

Like the old farmer said, “I can’t keep the birds from flying over my place.” But he had a double-barreled shotgun, said, “I can sure keep them from roosting.” So you do the same thing, and you too. See? Don’t let them roost. Let them pass right on through.

Now, here’s the shotgun to use. Both New and Old Testament’s a double barrel, very good too. I’ll tell you, It keeps them all away.
