Poor Mindset

Is your mindset keeping you poor? Remember in school when your teacher would put on your progress report Poor Behavior? It is not just limited to behavior.

Like your behavior, you can also have a poor mindset. A poor mindset is a mind robbed of the goodness of God. How is this possible? Glad you asked. If you continue to believe you are not good enough or you will never make it out of your struggle, then you suffer of a poor mindset.  When this is your thinking, you become deprived of the blessings. You begin cursing yourself, or your situation.
Face your fears knowing that the power within you is greater than anything coming against you.

Changing YOUR thinking will change your perception of your identity. Know who God called you to be. Don't suffer from a poor mindset.

No Paralyzed Faith Here

Don't let your bad memories paralyze you from stepping out of faith. Remember, God's mercy intervened to change your situation(s) around. You are here now! In Acts 14 and 15 we learn of Apostle Paul going through the worst of life's situations and faced opportunities to quit. Instead he fought the good fight of faith to not let these diversions prevent him from pressing forward. We should not either! We get too caught up in our difficulties and not enough in the provisions of God. We should commit to moving forward in faith and overcome the thoughts of dropping out of the race.  
The most admired athletes are the ones that endure adversity such as a tragic injury and manage to overcome. They are labeled 'Comeback Player of the Year'.  Likewise, as a Disciple of Christ, the ones the who press forward are the ones that are admired by those in their environment. In order to press forward, you must know who God is to you.  This will propel you to keep the faith. #Amen!  You don't get the award or label, but people ask for your insight on how you can still praise God even after losing a loved one or job, or struggling with your marriage or finances. They want to know "How do you do it?" You become their inspiration. The grace God provides, makes you a living testimony.  Know this, getting through your mess does not disqualify you, it QUALIFIES you.

Be Intentional

For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish it, all who observe it begin to ridicule him, saying, “This man began to build and was not able to finish.”  Luke 15:28-30

It's amazing what you can accomplish when you are intentional about how you spend your time. If you have ever dated someone you can truly relate. As a guy, when you have your eye on a certain female every move is intentional. From the way you dress to the words you same. It should be the same for God. When we intentionally focus our hearts on God, everything should be intentional. Not to impress God, but to gain a deeper relationship. Your prayer time intentions should be to invoke the presence of God. Be intentional!

Let's Get Over the Mountain

If you want to get over a problem, stop talking about it. Your mind affects your mouth, and your mouth affects your mind.

Your words are life and death to your situation.  Keeping a positive perspective will change your internal image of your situation.  This is the beginning stage of revelation.

Trusting God

When you trust God to fulfill the promises He's given you, all the forces of darkness cannot stop God from bringing your dreams to pass.

"For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." -Eph 2:10

Restrictions

Restrictions are present for a reason. My wife and I restrict our daughter from watching certain cartoons or staying up too late. These are for her benefit. Well we also have restrictions in our spiritual life. We are required to go through Jesus to get to the Father. One reason for this is to understand the sacrifice of the Lamb of God. Could you imagine, Jesus giving his life for us and instead of showing gratitude we just bypass him and go to the Father? How could you learn to appreciate anything Jesus did if you do not have to honor his actions?

Don't be deceived by Satan thinking the temporal things of this world are more important the the honor and gratitude you express to Jesus. Apostle Paul wrote “I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3). Satan led her away from the goodness of God. Eve lost sight of the freedom God had given her.

Let us not lose sight of our freedom.
