Rom. 7:5-20, Heb. 12:1, Eph. 2:1-3,4:17-18
– limbic system: pain, pleasure, survival – we become hardwired
Biblical Solutions:
– renewing your mind (Rom. 12:1-2, 2 Cor. 3:18-19, Eph. 4:22-23) the mind has a spirit
– setting your mindset (Rom. 8:5-6, Titus3:5) need the Holy Spirit’s power
– take captive every thought
– do some soul talking (Prov.23:7)
– “What you hang in your closet is what you will clothe yourself with. Your soul talk will affect who you are” Jennifer Rothschild from her book ‘Self Talk, Soul Talk
