One key to having a healthy mindset is having assurance that God can renew your mind. What is good data and what does it have to do with God’s assurance?

To put good data in your mind means you will assure that you can train your brain (neuroplasticity) by putting into it only what you choose. If you allow the world to train your brain they would tell you dreams and accomplishments are not possible. If you choose to ask God to renew your mind he might show you that all worldly negativity that is not redeeming, such as television, movies, entertainment and news, may have to go. You’ll not want to allow anything into your mind that removes God’s assurance from your life.

Romans 12:2 says, “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.”

Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.”

Be aware of your mind food.

Notice your social groups. Are they healthy? If you have friends that gossip, it will poison your life. It will warp and twist your thinking of others. It will give you guilty feelings about who you’ve been gossiping about. Lifting others up will help you keep a healthy mindset and stay clear of judgement of others.

Have friends who stand above things of God rather than things of the world. Select your own healthy environment.
