If any of you need wisdom, ask God for it. He will give it to you. God gives freely to everyone. He doesen't find fault. James 1:5 (NIRV)

Thought Conditioners

Forty powerful spiritual phrases that can change the quality of your life.

Since happiness and effectiveness depend upon the kinds of thoughts we think. We will all do well to consider – Isaiah 26:3 .. You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
Fill your mind with resentment thoughts, and resentment attitudes will emerge. And in neither case, of course, can you find happiness-inducing thoughts. Whatever the condition of your mind, the Thought Conditioners herein are so powerful that they will displace unhealthy thoughts. Displacement is the only way you can drive a thought from the mind.

In my experience I have discovered that the most vital, creative and positive thoughts are those stated in the Bible .. Its words are alive. The Bible itself states this spiritual truth –  John 15:7 (NIRV)  7 “If you remain joined to me and my words remain in you, ask for anything you wish. And it will be given to you. 

The words of the Bible are powerful Thought Conditioners. They are capable of revolutionizing the entire personality… even of the most hardened sinner. The process used by Norman Vincent Peale was used both personally and in counseling accomplished impressive results. Committing these great passages to memory as if in a  spiritual medicine cabinet, each to be drawn out as needed for specific ills or maladies of the personality, or to meet life’s situations as they develop.

The best results are gained by utilizing spare minutes to say these Scripture passages, or Thought Conditioners, over and over. As you are riding on a bus, washing the dishes, or waiting for an appointment – utilize fractional moments to dwell and meditate upon the meaning of these texts. As you do so, you will discover nuggets of insight, new pearls of perception, and gems of truth. Gradually they will drive into your mind until your life will become a living demonstration of God’s power.

Theses Thought Conditioners number 40 creative and vital passages. Why 40? Perhaps because in His own deepest spiritual experience, Jesus spent 40 days in the desert withstanding temptation. There are many more vital passages. In fact, you can read and re-read the Bible for a lifetime and never exhaust its wisdom. This is the Forty Thought Conditioners passed on to me through the diligence of Norman Peale and when you complete these and feel that they are in your permanent possession – please  explore the Scriptures further and find the many others that will have the same health-giving effect in your life.
