"AS A MAN THINKS in his heart, so is he...

Yesterday I read Dr. James Allen's little book, "As A Man Thinketh" and was awed by his wisdom.  Simply put and to the point, the title of the book comes from Proverbs 23:7;  'As a Man Thinketh in His Heart, so is he.'

" A particular train or thought persisted in, be it good or bad, cannot fail to produce it's results on  the character and circumstances.  A man cannot directly choose his circumstances, but he can choose his thoughts, and so indirectly, yet surely, shape his circumstances."

"The body is the servant of the mind.  It obey the operations of the mind, whether they be deliberately chosen or automatically expressed.  At the bidding of unlawful thoughts the body sinks rapidly into disease and decay; at the command of glad and beautiful thoughts it becomes clothed with youthfulness and beauty." Dr. James Allen.   Philippians 4:8. "Whatever things are true, noble, just, pure, lovely, good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy- mediate on these things."

Many people are suffering from some sort of illness or disease.  This malady continues in a fallen world.  We do have a choice when stricken with a dread disease or illness; we can choose to 'think about God and how He is in control of ALL and He is BIG Enough!  Choose God and His righteousness in illness, in good health, in misfortune, in prosperity with your life!
