Topic: The Necessity Of Right Thinking – from Seeds of Destiny Devotional by Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche | Date: Friday, 01 June 2018.
SCRIPTURE: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. Hosea 4:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: If you do not like the way you live, change the way you think.
God, in our anchor Scripture, makes it clear that His people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Knowledge refers to awareness, consciousness or understanding of a thing. This implies, from our Anchor Scripture, that many of God’s children are destroyed for lack of awareness, consciousness or understanding.
Beloved, it is important to know that the destruction of the people of God is not because of the strength or powerfulness of the devil but because of the lack of awareness or understanding of their rights and privileges. God’s people are ruined because they are not aware of who they are or the provision that belongs to them in God.
The lack of awareness of who we are in God is also the reason why life is out of control. The Scripture makes us to understand in Psalms 82:5-7 that all the foundations of the earth are out of course and control because of our lack of awareness.
Furthermore, awareness is a secret of wealth; your possession is a product of your perception; anything that does not cross your mind can never cross your life. Even if it crosses your life by mistake, you cannot retain it because your mind may be too small to handle the breakthrough. For example, if the thought of billions of dollars is not in your mind, you cannot have it in your hands. That is why the Bible says, Be careful how you think; your life is shaped by your thoughts. Proverbs 4:23 (GNT). For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Proverbs 23:7.
Therefore, it is important to renovate your mentality. To renew and renovate your mind is to be upgraded in life. If you do not like the quality of your life, upgrade your mentality. If you do not like the way you live, change the way you think.
My counsel is, make conscious effort to renovate and upgrade your mentality on a consistent basis. The renovation of mentality is a life-time assignment if life must be upgraded.
Remember this: If you do not like the way you live, change the way you think.
- Avoid harbouring negative thoughts in your mind.
- Let the thoughts of what you want and where you want to be in life fill your mind.
- Renovate your mind always by studying God’s Word.
PRAYER: O Lord, I reject every negative and limiting thought in my mind. I ask for the grace to renew my mind by studying Your Word, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
