Prov.24: 3-4: Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established: And by knowledge shall the chambers be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
You can either be influenced by the word of God or you can be influenced by the ways of this world.
Rom12:2 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.
The scripture says to think soberly according to the word and be renewed in your mind according to God’s word. Renewing your mind is not a one-time event it’s an ongoing process.
If our thinking is not according to the word, then our thinking is going to be under the influence of something else and more often than nought secular humanism will take control of our lifestyle.
The question is who is influencing you in your thinking. Is your thinking measured by the word of God or is it influenced by the philosophies of this world?
When you face challenges in your life, the way you think will determine how you are going to react to the different situations in your life.
Have you ever discovered that human tendency is always to be defensive or place the blame on someone else when they are confronted with a problem? Quite rarely you would come across someone who would sincerely admit that they had failed because of their own weakness by taking the blame on themselves.
YOUR SUCCESS OR FAILURE
Your success or defeat in your life is not based on your circumstances! It’s not based on the people you deal with! Neither is it based in the system out there! Blaming circumstances will not make you successful or unsuccessful. Here is what we need to understand. God always gives us a seed for success but it incubates in YOUR MIND AND HEART FIRST.
If you fail in your MIND you will be defeated in your LIFE! If you are not able to succeed in your mind you will fail in your undertakings. Your problem is not circumstances out there! Your problem isn’t what the world calls bad luck! Your problem is not even the devil! Your problem is A THINKING PROBLEM!
You problem is renewing of your mind according to God’s standards (CHANGING OF YOUR MINDSET) which is influenced by God’s word.
You know what? Have you ever given a thought that your life today is the creation of all your thoughts you have been making yesterday? What you are today is A PRODUCT OF A SEED that you conceived in your mind yesterday and that seed has obviously produced after its own kind. BECAUSE, God’s law says, everything (SEED) WILL produce after its own kind (Gen 1).
What happens in your mind determines your outcome of your life and all your undertakings. Your success or failure is an inside job (Heart & Mind). You don’t have to change the circumstances in order to change the outcome of your life. Some people think if “I can change everything and everybody out there, only then I will be successful in life”. They fail to realize that even if they succeeded in changing everything out there, they will still not be successful because success IS NOT OUT THERE! If you ever want to succeed IN YOUR LIFE, you need to do a lot of CHANGING IN YOUR MIND AND HEART.
