The greatest enemy of tomorrow’s success is today’s success! The denial for change steals your desire to grow and makes you unproductive. Somebody said: “If we don’t change, we don’t grow and if we don’t grow we are not really living.”
CHANGE IS A VERY POWERFUL FORCE & GOD WANTS US TO CHANGE
God wants to stretch your faith in order to accommodate a new move of what He wants to do in your life. So often we fail to realize that until and unless we are willing to accommodate a change, God will not be able fulfil His purpose and destiny in your life.
YOU ARE A SEED OF GOD
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will. (Rom 12:2)
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 (Gen1)
What happens in your mind determines your outcome. 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.
If you fail in your MIND you will be defeated in your LIFE! Your problem is not circumstances out there! Your problem is not even the devil! Your problem is a THINKING PROBLEM!
You problem is renewing of your mind!! (CHANGING OF YOUR MINDSET) in accordance with what God says about you.
THE ENEMY’S AGENDA
The devil will lock your mind off by sowing seeds of lies in you. He will make you believe you are hopeless and helpless. He will paralyse your thinking and reasoning power and imprison you under his control. By doing this you are unable to know the truth because the moment you come to know the truth it has the power to set you free.
John 8:32 NIV: Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.
The enemy has to empty you first. He has to make you bankrupt first, before he can come in and take over your life, so that he can manipulate and control us and keep us poor in his kingdom of darkness.
He doesn’t want you to drive your life; he wants to drive you. He wants to make you a passenger.
The world will tell you. What’s wrong in being a passenger? I am better off being a passenger! Somebody is driving me around but they will never tell you that you are not in control of where you are going. They will only tell you my status is better than a driver. That’s what the world system is all about.
As a result, most of us are riding on a passenger seat instead of driving on the driver’s seat.
You know what? I will tell you the difference between a passenger and a driver.
A passenger has no control he is totally dependent on the driver. For example if you are passenger in a taxi. You have no control of your destiny. The taxi can take you round and round before you reach your destination. That’s because you are ignorant of the way. Your journey can take longer than usual.
In other words the passenger is hopeless and helpless when it comes to where he wants to go. There is always a possibility of the driver manipulating you.
The driver on the other hand is in control of his destiny, he has the power within him which route he wants to take and where he wants to turn and where he wants to go. He knows the truth of his journey.
WHICH CATEGORY DO YOU BELONG?
Where would you want to be classified ? If you are a passenger than you are driving on someday. And the devil can ride on you. He can control you because you are dependent on him to take you to places. You are ignorant of your direction. You are ignorant of where you need to go to reach a certain destination.
WHO ARE YOU IN CHRIST AND WHO IS CHRIST IN YOU?
When you are Christ controlled. When you are rooted and grounded in God’s word, you can no longer see your problem as the world sees. You have the anointing to change the way you think about your problem and TRANSFORM YOUR PROBLEM!
Can you see, all these events whether positive or negative happens outside you. It cannot impact or affect you unless you make a WILLING CHOICE to allow it to COME INSIDE YOU and affect you emotionally. What you believe determines what you become. “You think what you think because you believe what you believe”. Ultimately who you are in Christ and who Christ is in you will determine your outcome.
STOP RECYCLING OLD HISTORY
You know what? God is saying to us today “Don’t keep going over old history….I am going to do something brand new (Isa43:18-19). And if you are not going to change, you are going to miss out on Me!”
Are you in the business of asking God to enlarge your vision and dream and do something new in your life rather than recycling old history and living in your own comfort zone?
