As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he is a statement very true. Do you believe people reject you? You will act rejected. The enemy throws thoughts at you all day. He accuses you of your sin, your failures, what other people did to hurt you, etc. We have to believe God’s Word over our stinking thinking and not give in to the lies.

What man holds in his mind has a tremendous effect on his physical body. God’s laws are right about cause and effect work in all realms–the spiritual, the mental, and the material. No force is without its cause; no cause is without its effect.
There is real evidence to support the idea that many of our diseases and physical breakdowns are a result of our thinking. The body becomes ill or breaks down as it reacts to excessive stresses.

Diseases that are brought on by mental attitudes are known as psychosomatic diseases. The name comes from combining the word psycho, which means mind and the word soma, which means body.
