The purpose is to Take on the mind of Christ and to waste not your mind.

In this blog I’m going to point out some specific things God has revealed through the word of God(bible) that waste your mind, what you are to do to waste not your mind and gain the results God wants for you.

Some things to point out as a waste of your mind

  • You waste your mind by engaging in things which are not useful in the Kingdom of God.

These are things that are not pointing  in the direction of the righteous of God, the peace of God and the joy in the Holy Ghost(Spirit)

According to Philippians 4:7, it reads:

The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but righteousness, peace and Joy in the Holy Ghost(Spirit)


  • You waste your mind by focusing on things you don’t really want.

Focusing on those kinds of things will bring confusion concerning what’s really important. If there is confusion then there is no peace

1st Corinthians 4:33 says, “God is not the author of confusion, but of Peace

This scripture confirms that confusion is not from the Lord and God is the author of Peace.

  • You can waste your mind with sin(s).

One specific thing God revealed in order to point out in particular concerning the affect on our mind is the sin of Worry.  Yes Worry is a sin.

Worry is fear….. and fear is a sin.  The word sin simply means ” to miss the mark”.  If there is a particular mark set by God for you to hit and you don’t….that’s sin. That’s why we need God to cleanse us of sins.

1st John 4:8 says:

There is no fear in love, but perfect love casteth out fear, because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love


  • You waste your mind by focusing on the past

The book of  2nd Corinthians Chapter 5:17 reads:

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.

I was talking with one of my elders, which is someone I allow to speak into my life according to God, and my elder said that he refuses to be ‘Blackmailed’ by his past and that it’s a trick from the enemy

  • You waste your mind being in a state of false identity

Looking in the book of St. John 1:12-13(KJV King James version) it reads:

12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

and in Romans 8:37King James Version (KJV King James version)

37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

The Purpose is to take on the Mind of God and waste not our mind.

This is how we waste not or mind, but that we are focusing our mind based on a scripture in the book of Philippians chapter 4 and verse 8 which reads:

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.

Know that Wrong thinking leads to wrong believing leads to wrong choices and that Right thinking leads to right believing leads to right choices
