Memorise: “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians 2:5).
Beloved, your success in life and ministry can only be possible if your body, soul and spirit are in direct cooperation with the word of God. Your mind is the required tool for effective and successful living. This is why it is important you develop your spirit man to take total control of your body and mind.
“Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” (Philippians 2:5).
Your mortal mind is weak and not always supportive when issues of life arises. That is why it’s always easy to give up in the face of the battles of life. The desire of God for every true believer is that we have the mind of Christ.
The mind of Christ is bold, strong and it’s always undefeated in any battle. It’s important to note that this kind of mind is directly functioning and empowered by the word of God. This makes it difficult for it to be wrongly informed or mislead the fear of the unknown. How far you will go in life is directly proportional to the kind of message your mind receive and the object of control it has.
“For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” (Galatians 5:17).
Your natural mind needs total renewal if you will function correctly in destiny. The word of God is the only available medicine to get your mind out of fear, deceit, failure and the challenges of life. You can only see solutions through the Word of God! Fear comes by hearing and hear the words of men. Faith is built on the word of God. Your mind cannot embrace the expected victory and success if not totally renewed by God.
If you have the mind of Christ, you will easily see into the realm of the Spirit the provision of God for you in the redemption. You will be positive about your goals and dreams. You cannot have the mind of Christ and not be sure that your future is bright. Regardless of the economic situation of your nation and the world at large, your mind once linked with that of Christ enables you to hear the sound of abundance of rain like Elijah! You need to train up your mind to think the way the word of God says you should think regardless of your feelings.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” (Philippians 4:8).
The remaining days of this year are too much to get your victories and miracles delivered provided you have a renewed mind set. Ask God to renew your mind through His Word!
