If the first bottom line about my mind is that I am what I think, then the second and more obvious conclusion is that I do what I think.
There is no such thing as an irresistible temptation.
The reality is that most men who fail do so because they construct scenarios in their minds long before actually acting on one of them. The temptation itself is not intrinsically irresistible. The dazzling number of mental machinations ahead of time, however, weakens our wills to the point of total vulnerability.
The old saying, “You can do anything if you put your mind to it” is true– and for God’s man, absolutely critical.
For as he thinks within himself, so he is. (PROVERBS 23:7, NASB)
