Frame ~~ of mind.

Isaiah 26:3
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.

In the Hebrews, the word for mind is yetser. And it means framework in intellect or form.

Mark 12:30
And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Here the word mind in the Greek means understanding, feeling, desire.

Luke 12:29
And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

In this verse, the word, mind, in the Greek means to put out to the deep as in waves of an unruly sea.

Acts 20:19
Serving the LORD with all humility of mind,...

Here the Greek word used for mind means having a deep sense of one's littleness, humility.

Every thought is viewed from one frame or another. We can be of humble mind, carnal mind, or a renewed mind. And the world around us will appear different when viewed through these different frames.

Every thought is seen through a frame of our mind.

2 Corinthians 10:5
Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

How do you see your circumstances? Your loved ones? Your enemies? Yourself?

Wash yourself with the Word of God and renew your mind. It's a choice.
