Everyone is born with the 3lbs of cauliflower they will have for a lifetime. There no exchanging. Unlike Dr. Frankenstein, there is not a doctor or individuals this side of eternity that has the ability to give us a new mind via a brain exchange, you can’t change your mind.
The human mind is a power thing that cannot be replaced and is valuable to our existence.
Can people really change? Is our personality preprogrammed or is it mailable. There are many ways one could look at this and come to a conclusion. The science of neuroplasticity says our brains have the ability to change and grow through our entire life. In a sense, our experiences retire us… So our brain is in a state of flux suggesting nothing is permanent.
What do we decide to do with the mind we have been given? Some people have special abilities such as creativity and visualizing things before they are developed, solving riddles and puzzles or simply walking through an entire process before ever taking a physical step.
It’s not so easy to change a mind. It’s not so easy without help, supernatural help that is… Events in our lives can shape us and direct or redirect our paths and with the help of the redemptive power of Jesus the dreams the limit.
I know you were pondering what the Bible must have to say about this subject so I’ll make things easier on you.
Romans 12:1-2 I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Spiritual warfare often occurs in our minds such as temptation, deception, and accusations.
The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 1 Peter 4:7
The difference I see in a great mind and a small mind as simply as this: possibilities have come forth into objective action for the great mind, the same possibilities continue to be subjective inaction in the small mind.
Consider the potential great minds in our world. It very well may be that all they are lacking to become great is a parent willing to love all of the child or person, not only the visible or tangible person, but the beautiful undreamed-of wonders that are undoubtably waiting in that person/child-mind for expression. Do you see a use for this? Do you see a use for an individual that possess the ability to change the world? If we can take a moment to consider this as truth, and if we became the missing puzzle piece to create a wholeness, what change could we see? What advancement in the Kingdom would we inherently facilitate by the grace of God for His glory? The answer is limitless…
