Memorize: But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians; 3:18
Devotional Reading: 2 Corinthians.3:10-18
Whatever you become in life is a product of what you think.Your mind is the battle ground for the conflicts of life. Whatever your mind cannot picture you can’t capture. In taking picture, you must first see the object before you can capture it. Object that is not clearly seen cannot be clearly captured. Picture is imagination it connote sight and the ground is the mind. My question for you today is what can you see?
God told Abraham for as far as your eyes can see, I have given you. Abraham had to see it through his mind. What gives birth to success you see around is an act of imagination in someone’s mind. God cannot stop your imagination from becoming manifestation if your mind can retain the vision, therefore, your weapon is your mind. When you imagine success, it comes your way. Imagination is done in field of the mind. If you can’t stop a man from thinking success, you won’t be able to stop him from speaking, acting and eventually enjoying success. Everything a man will ever say is a product of what is on his mind. “…for out of the abundance of the heart the mount speaketh” Matt. 12:34
You can’t stop a man from talking sickness if he is thinking sickness. Nor can you stop a man from talking success, as long as he thinks success. I met some people some years back, they were of the opinion that the reason they were backward was because they were from a certain part of the country, it is sad to know that so many believers still think that way till today. They forgot that God answers to thoughts, the same way He answers prayer. Eph. 3:20 says “now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us”. If you want to enjoy unlimited success or total liberty then begin to imagine it in your mind.
God told Abram all the land, wealth, cattle which thou see, will I give to thee” which means if Abram didn’t see anything God cannot do anything. It is a choice given to mankind to choose between good and bad. So if you can’t see it, God cannot do it. Joseph saw the throne and he got it. Some singles have already seen themselves struggling to have children; some young students have already seen themselves jobless after graduation. Some parent have already seen their children joining cultism and bad gangs when they get to school. There are many, however, who have been lifted and exalted by their positive mind and imagination coupled with their attitude of faith; while many others have been ruined by their negative imaginations and bad attitudes.Your weapon is your mind.
The devil knows how powerful imaginations can be, so he infuses devilish mind set into people. Imaginations such as philosophies of men, negative doctor’s reports, or things people say, that is contrary to the knowledge and promises of God. You must locate them and cast them out of your mind by putting on the whole armor of God.
I pray for you today, that God’s word will illuminate and extinct every negative thought in your mind in the name of Jesus.
Prayer point: Everlasting Father, help my mind to think and stay positive in Jesus name.
