Men of Memphis - Spring 2022

Week 1

Introduction: Where are your thoughts taking you?

Your thoughts drive your life.

Modern psychology is focusing on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

Today's thoughts will shape your tomorrow.

You can change your life by changing your thinking.

Craig's book has four main parts:

Part 1—Examine the battle for your mind.
Part 2—Learn how your brain works and see how to rewire it.
Part 3—Reframe your thinking and redesign your mind.
Part 4—Overcome mental triggers through prayer and praise.

God wants to help you transform your mind.

Part 1: The Replacement Principle—Remove the Lies, Replace with Truth

Chapter 1: Perception is Reality

Some people feel trapped in the prison of their thoughts.

The devil fights you in the battlefield of your mind.

Satan works subtly to defeat you in your thought life.

Satan is working even when it seems all is well.

Satan floods our minds with false thoughts.

We must listen to what God says about us, not what Satan says.
