THE FORCE OF MINDSET
Monday 24th May 2021
It is important for you to know that your present location is not your final destination.
SCRIPTURE: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is important for you to know that your present location is not your final destination.
Mentality is a strong force in the lifestyle of faith. Faith works with the right mindset. The force of the right mindset is critical to keeping faith alive.
Now, mindset is not just thought; mindset is settled thinking. It is an established opinion. It is a concluded thinking.
The children of Israel had a kind of mindset that made them remain in captivity until they could not grasp the possibility of liberty any more. They were slaves who eventually fell in love with their chains. The chains on their legs got transferred to their minds.
In India, a circus elephant is usually tied with a rope when it is newly caught. And so, it moves round in a circle within a limited perimeter. Whenever it wants to get out of the circle, the rope pulls it back. It remains like that for a long time. And people would come to watch the elephant.
After being confined to that position for a long time, they would remove the rope from the elephant’s leg, but by this time, the elephant does not attempt to move out anymore. The rope that tied its leg physically left the leg and tied its brain mentally. And it is established in its mind that that perimeter is where it belonged. Nobody is holding it anymore. Nobody is stopping it anymore but it cannot go out of that circle because it has a settled mind and the mind settled it in that realm.
Beloved, it is important for you to know that your present location is not your final destination. The devil wants to make you believe that where you are now is where you will die. That is a lie of the devil. So, expand your possibility by changing your mindset and thinking positively.
Remember this: It is important for you to know that your present location is not your final destination.
- Allow God to change your mindset so your life can change positively.
- Refuse to have a mindset of impossibility.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for a positive change of mindset. Let my life also change positively as my mindset changes, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
QUOTE: You must make up your mind if you really want to succeed in life. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Psalm 46-48
REFLECTION: The limit of life is the limit set for it by the mind. Can you identify any limiting mindsets that you have? Is there any condition of life you have accepted as final? Is there anything you have stopped attempting because you have concluded it as impossible? It is time to reset the mind.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: What has been impossible before now is declared possible in Jesus’ Name.
