A Renewed Mindset

Tuesday, 26 June 2012

Lie not to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds: And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him (Colossians 3:9-10).

Many are stagnant in life because they have the wrong mindset; their minds are not renewed with the Word of God. The life to which we’ve been called in Christ is one of continual victory, and glorifying the Lord Jesus Christ through the Word. Romans 12:2 says, ‘’And be not confirmed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind…’’

Meditation on the Word helps you build a spiritual and mental attitude that’s consistent with God’s will and purpose for the new creation in Christ. It’s a process where by you exchange your thoughts of weakness, sickness, poverty, fear and death for thoughts of victory, health, prosperity and success. Joshua 1:8 reveals it as the infallible recipe for building a successful and victorious life: ‘’This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.’’

First, notice it says, to ‘’meditate day and night.’’ That means the effectiveness of this practice is tired to its consistency. You have to keep the Word in your heart and in your mouth day and night for it to produce in you the mindset of victory, success and advantage. You have to keep pondering, muttering and shouting the Word.

It’s important that every now and then, you find a conducive place, where you can shout you mind down, and talk your spirit up with the Word! Do this consistently, and you’d have a renewed mindset; you’ll begin to talk differently, and others will notice that there’s something unique about you. The Word of God on your lips will programme you for a life of consistent success, energize you for victory, and give you the mindset of the righteous.


My spirit is energized for victory as I meditate on the Word of God today; I’m positioned for the transcendent life; I walk in joy, peace, prosperity, health and victory today, in Jesus’ Name.

Have Confidence In His Ability

Friday, 22 June 2012

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths (Proverbs 3:5-6).

To trust the Lord means to have confidence in His Word, and hold tenaciously to His promises; it means to depend on Him completely. It means to believe what God says and exercise unshakeable faith in His ability. His grace is past finding out; His power is infinite; and His love is unimaginable. When you consider just how great and awesome the Lord is, you’ll never worry or be anxious or depressed, no matter what happens to you or around you. The mere realization that you belong to the almighty God, who loved you enough to have given His Son Jesus to die in your stead should cheer you up for victory.

Those who linger in frustration and sadness really don’t trust the Lord, for if they did they’d realize that there’s no disadvantage for the Child of God. Romans 8:28 says, ‘’And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose.’’ This isn’t a promise but a statement of reality. Nothing can work against you; nothing and no one can make you a victim; so quit the pity-party and lay hold of your victory in Christ.

Believe in the Lord with all your heart and trust His Word; have confidence in His ability to make you all that He’s destined for you to be. Jesus said to His disciples, ‘’Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men’’ (Mathew 4:19). All He said to them was ‘’follow me’’; in other words, trust me; have confidence in me, and I’ll make your dreams come true. Have unshakeable confidence in the ability of the Word of God to make you what it talks about. It begins with being a doer of the Word; consciously putting the Word to work in your life! That’s all you need to have a great life!


Dear Father, I put my trust and confidence in your Word, conscious that your Word is all I need for progress, success and victory. I live triumphantly by the Word today, excited that it’s producing in me fruits unto righteousness, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Take Possession Now!

Monday, 18 June 2012

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen (Hebrews 11:1).

A gentleman once wanted to know what level of faith he needed to attain in order to receive healing from a chronic ailment. In his words, ‘’I have faith; and I even fast! But it seems none of this is working. However I believe that God will set me free someday!’’ From his comments, the real problem is obvious; he didn’t understand the difference between faith and hope. The language: ‘’God will set me free someday’’ is an expression of hope, not faith.

Faith works now; it takes possession now. You can’t say you have faith and at the same time be hoping on God for a miracle. This is one mistake some Christians make, and they wonder why their faith seems ineffective. Faith always works! As long as you’re functioning in the arena of hope, you can’t effect the desired changes. I’ll explain this by distinguishing between faith and hope. Hope is to put your expectation into the future. Romans 5:5 says hope makes not ashamed; it doesn’t disappoint us because it’s the first element required; but when faith comes, it takes possession.

Faith is now! It takes possession now by calling real and done that which you’ve hoped for. Hebrews 11:1 says, ‘’Now faith is…’’Your hope must translate to faith for it to work. Teaching on faith in Mark 11:24, Jesus said, ‘’Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.’’ At the point of asking in prayer, you’re to believe that you’ve received what you’ve asked for; that’s faith! But if you’re hoping that God will answer your prayer someday, that won’t work; even though you believe it.

So take possession now; declare that the healing, blessing or miracle you desire is yours now!


Dear Father, I thank you for your Word which has bolstered faith in my spirit today. My faith is the victory that overcomes the world! I walk in divine health, prosperity, progress and victory now, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

You Can Control Your Thoughts!

Tuesday, 12 June 2012

For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he… (Proverbs 23:7).

Philippians 4:8 says, ‘’…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…think on these things.’’ This suggests you can dictate and control the subject and character of your thoughts. Thoughts are more than mere imaginations; they are mental pictures with constructive and destructive capabilities. Thoughts, many times, are your own creation; the mental construction of your mind that are based on your imaginations. They have the power to keep you in bondage or liberate you to be the best of you.

Until you change your way of thinking, your life and the circumstances of your existence will not change. That’s how powerful thoughts are; and this is the reason we’re admonished in Scripture to choose our thoughts. You must think in line with the Word always. God has given you the ability as well as the responsibility to change your life from glory to glory by managing your mind to think right: ‘’And be not confirmed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God’’ (Romans 12:2).

Realize that you are the character of your thoughts. Where you’re today is a function of your mind; your thinking. Your life in general, including how you live, the things you do, the character of your words and the totality of your personality are all the expression of your thought process. No wonder Proverbs 4:23 enjoins that you mount garrison over your heart. Don’t allow just every thought come in. Reject thoughts that tend to demean or depress you, and accept only thoughts of success, joy, victory and prosperity. You can actually make your life much happier, fulfilling, and full of glory if you’d manage your mind to think in consonance with the Word.


Blessed Father, thank you for the power of your Word to renew and transform my mind and change my estate! Your perfect will is done in my life today as I make your Word my meditation, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

The importance of Growth For Christians

Friday, 8 June 2012

Until a child grows, he does not differ from a servant. He is under tutor and governors. When he grows he takes his full position and begins to reign. Until a Christian grows, he cannot enjoy fully his rights and inheritance in Christ. Galatians 4:1-2

God designed us to grow:

God wants us to grow into Christ in all things. The Bible says we should desire the word of God that we may grow thereby. Ephesians 4:15-16, 1 Peter 2:3

Increase the result we produce:

Hebrews 5:14 ‘’seeing then that we have a great high priest, that passed into the heavens, Jesus the son of God lets us hold fast our profession.’’

Study the word:

2 Timothy 2:15. It is very necessary that we study the word of God. The Bible says that we should study to show ourselves approved, a workman that needs not be ashamed.

Reason for study:

1 Peter 2:2; Eph 4:14. We study so that we would grow. God’s word is the food for the spirit; we have to take it in order to grow.


You Are God’s Address

Sunday, 3 June 2012

The address of a person is where the person lives. His house, where he operates from. God dwelt in tents in the Old Testament. During the time of Moses, he was instructed by God to build an ark according to the pattern shown to him on the mountain. After Moses finished building the ark, the glory of the Lord filled the ark. Exodus 40:34-35. Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting because of the cloud that had settled upon it and the glory of the Lord filled the tabernacle. That was when God started dwelling in the ark. The ark signified the presence of the Lord. It means that wherever the ark was, God’s presence was equally there.

During the time of Solomon, he built God a temple and after dedicating the temple, the glory of the Lord filled the temple. 2 Chronicles 7:1-2. God started dwelling in the temple. When the Israelites prayed to God, they came to Jerusalem where the temple was, but if they were far from Jerusalem, they must pray facing Jerusalem. When they sinned against God and were afflicted because of their disobedience, they normally come with ashes on their heads and their clothes turn before the temple for God to forgive them.

That temple became God’s headquarters, His home address, His office where He reaches out to sons of men. The Bible says that the most high does not live in a house made with hands/men Acts 7:48. That was why when Christ died, the curtain of the temple turn into twain from top to bottom and the Holy Ghost now dwells in anybody that confesses Jesus as the Lord of their lives. In Old Testament Temple, we have the outer court, inner court and the Holy of Holies where God dwells. Likewise our body typified the outer court, where all activities of life takes place. Our soul represents the inner court while our spirit represents the Holy of Holies where God dwells in.

So in New Testament, our body is called the temple of God. 1 Corinthians 6:19, but He dwells in our spirit. We have the inner man and the outward man, 2 Corinthians 4:16. The inward man is made up of the Spirit and the soul. God dwell in our spirit, the hidden man of the heart. Our body is our house, it houses the human spirit. And since God dwells in our spirits, it means that our body is the house of God, Hebrews 3:6. It means that since God dwells in us, everybody that needs God ought to come to His house as they did in the Old Testament. Ephesians 2:21-22, 1 Corinthians 6:19.


Sickness: Not An Act Of God!

Friday, 1 June 2012

How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him (Acts 10:38).

A lady gave birth to a child that was blind and started crying, ‘’Oh God, what has this innocent child done to be born blind? Oh God, why did you do this?’’ She held God responsible for such a misfortune out of her ignorance. Many people ignorantly attribute every mishap to an act of God; this is wrong! God is not the author of the pain, sickness and misery in the lives of many. Rather, He’s the healer, restorer, and mender of broken hearts, broken lives, and broken relationships.

Our opening scripture reveals God’s character and nature of love, kindness, and compassion, while revealing Satan as the one who oppresses people with sickness, hardship, pain and misery. It tells us that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all that were oppressed of the devil, for God was with Him. Notice, it wasn’t God who made the people sick; but it was God who sent Jesus to heal them.

The case of blind Bartimaeus readily buttresses this. The Bible says he was born blind; not satisfied with his condition, he cried out to Jesus for help, and the Lord restored his sight (Mark 10:51-52). In this case, the man was born blind, and then Jesus healed him, proof-positive it wasn’t God who made him blind. A similar case was when Jesus and His disciples met another man who was born blind. His disciples asked Him, ‘’Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?’’ (John 9:2).

The Lord responded, ‘’…Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the word of God should be made manifest in him, I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.’’ The devil’s work was manifested in the man’s life, which was the blindness, but the Lord Jesus went on to say, ‘’…but that the works of God should be made manifest in him, I must work the works of Him that sent me,’’ (John 9:3-4) and healed the man.

Evidently, God is the healer while the devil is the oppressor responsible for all the sickness, disease and misery that people suffer from! Nevertheless, thanks be unto God; He’s given us power to heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead and cast out devils (Mathew 10:8). Like Jesus, you ought to go about doing good. Healing those who are oppressed of the devil, for God is with you.


Dear Heavenly Father, blessed be your Name forever for your light that shines brightly in this dark world, bringing healing, deliverance, preservation, and strength to the oppressed and afflicted, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
