DEVELOP THE MIND OF CHRIST Monday, 18 May 2015
“And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”. Genesis 11:6 (KJV)
What type of mind do you have? The bible tells us in the book of Proverbs 23:7, that as a man thinketh in his heart so is he. In other words, you are a product of your thought pattern. You cannot go above your thought pattern. If you believe in your thinking that you cannot, you will not. If you believe in your thought pattern that things are working against you, then that’s what will happen to you and that’s what that scripture is saying.
If you believe you will die a poor man that is what will happen to you. If you believe you will not get married and that it is too late for you; that is what is going to happen. If you believe in your mind that you are not going to have a baby, you will go without a baby. Because as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he. What you continually think on will eventually manifest. It is just a matter of time.
In Genesis 11, a group of people came together and decided to build a tower God had to come down to look at the tower. What they were building was so significant and so powerful that it caught God’s attention (vs 5). And God said something very interesting which also applies to us. “and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do (Vs 6). God himself is saying that what they have imagined to do; they cannot be stopped. What they have agreed that they want to do and are single minded about; nothing can stop them. God himself had to stop them otherwise they would have done it. Why? As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.
The greatest thing that should happen to you after your salvation is for you to have a renewed mind. Your mind has to be renewed. You must develop the mind of Christ. The mind of the anointed one and his anointing. The problem of majority of people in the church is that they are saved but carrying the mind of the world. Your ability to float and stand above the challenges of life is predicated on what you do with your mind. You can be saved, be a candidate of heaven but still live a defeated life here on earth. So many church folks have been defeated because they refused to develop the mind of Christ.
Get in the Word today. Stay in the Word and develop the mind of Christ and you will watch every mountain bow before you in Jesus name.
