MIND MONSTERS, Part 3— How To Slay The Mind Monsters That Are Holding You Back

Memory Verse— “Words kill or give life; they’re either poison or fruit -- you choose.” Proverbs 18:21

TEXT:  “Then Jesus said to the disciples, “Have faith in God. 23 I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart. 24 I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours. 25 But when you are praying, first forgive anyone you are holding a grudge against, so that your Father in heaven will forgive your sins, too.”  Mark 11:22-25 (NLT)

Key Thought-  The Words That You Speak Can CREATE A Mind Monster Or They Can REMOVE It.   
  • Don’t SPEAK about your Mind Monsters, SPEAK to them.  
  • If you don’t speak TO your Mind Monsters, they will speak TO you.
  • Your Mind Monsters will only respond to your VOICE.
