It is a man’s perspective that will determine his destiny. God is the Omni-potent God; there is no way He would have given birth to impotent children because like begets like. When you got born again, God puts into you all that HE has. Whatever is in God is also in you and God is not expecting you to live lower than what HE has placed in you; it is an abuse to redemption if you do. You are created by God to take the world by storm.
1Cor. 2:16b -…but we have the mind of Christ.
If you are born again, your mental capacity is the creative force of God that is in you.
John 1:3 –All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.
If everything was made by God and you are created in His image, it then means that you are supposed to be a co-creator. Have the perspective that you are not supposed to be a problem but a solution to the world. If God has made you so great, how come you are not living up to the expectation that God wants you to be?
Most Christians are living mediocrity lifestyle. To live an average life is an abuse to redemption.
Rom.12:2 -And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Without a mind renewal, you might end up reaming at the same spot; it is your mind transformation through information from God’s word that brings about your lifting in life. Change your perspective now that you are born again; don’t reason the way the world reasons but reason like a child of God for you to come out of the prisons of life.
Your mind is the compass of your destiny; your life will always tilt towards what your mind says. If you think you can do it, no devil can stop you. Many people have the wrong perspective that they cannot make it in life except they travel out of the country but you should change your perspective that you can make it irrespective of where you are. There is no land that is dry; what we have around us are dry minds.
Where you are now is a function of your thought life and what you will become in future is a function of how you think today. Until you change the thinking of a man; you cannot change the man because the mind is powerful.
Many have stayed around poverty too long that even when God brought them out to be born again, they have already adapted to the poverty mentality as a way of life. As soon a s you got born again, you no longer belong to the lineage of poor people because Christ was made poor that you might be rich; change your perspective.
Don’t see yourself as a second class citizen; see yourself as a first-class citizen. You cannot be bigger than how you see yourself from your mind. Greatness is not just what you pray for; greatness is what you see from your mind first. If your mind can grasp it, your hand will get it. Anything your mind conceives and believes, no devil can stop it.
Philemon 1:14 –But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
If your mind is not involved, God will not be able to do anything. He has been limited in your life because your mind is not reasoning with Him.
Isaiah 1:18a –Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:…
The mind is powerful – if you have a faulty mind, your life will be faulty; if you have a poor mind, your life will be poor; if you have a rich mind, your life will be rich. Your mind is the compass of your destiny; whatever your mind nurtures is what your life will become.
God bless you
