God’s Way Of Changing The Heart

by Hazel Straub

What we think and rehearse in our minds, manifests in our actions. When we meditate and think on the wonderful love of God, his mercy, grace, faithfulness and forgiveness for us, we give more love, mercy, grace and forgiveness to others. However, if we allow pride, offense and trauma, to take hold in our thoughts, we become proud and self-centered, self-righteous, argumentative, bitter and unforgiving. We judge others and act superior.

We need God’s weapons to pull down strongholds of the enemy, residing in our mind, will and emotions (heart). No longer letting past traumas define our present. With our full surrender and reliance on God’s supernatural help and weapons, we destroy these thoughts through Jesus. Thankful for God’s faithfulness and help, we either live bitter or better.

The weapons of the war we’re fighting are not of this world but are powered by God and effective at tearing down the strongholds erected against His truth.  We are demolishing arguments and ideas, every high-and-mighty philosophy that pits itself against the knowledge of the one true God. We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One (Jesus).  (2 Corinthians 10:4-5 VOICE)

  2. This post reminds me of one of my favorite verses:

    Do not call to mind the former things,
    Or ponder things of the past.
    “Behold, I will do something new,
    Now it will spring forth;
    Will you not be aware of it?
    I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
    Rivers in the desert.
    – Isaiah 43:18-19

  5. Beautiful post! It resonated. I have experienced proud people, fault-finders, and domineering superiors. I think we need to pray for a humbling spirit of a dove to have its way in our lives ☺

  6. The battle is definitely waged in our minds so we need to fill our minds with God’s Word

  7. The first paragraph that emphasizes how our thoughts manifest in what we do is a strong reminder to be attentive to what we dwell upon. Thank you, Hazel!


    • You are welcome, Nancy! Our thought life is so important. It determines our heart and what comes out of our mouth! Blessings!
