THINK RIGHT

(Focus Your Thoughts On The Word)

TO THE BIBLE: Philippians 4:8

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.”

LET’S TALK

Your life is based on your thoughts, and your thoughts are based on the information you have, and the information you have is based on its source. People’s problems mostly originate from the way they think; they just think the wrong thoughts. If you notice your thoughts aren’t in conformity with the Word of God, change them. Subject your thoughts to the Word of God! Subject your thoughts to the Holy Spirit! Don’t be drawn away in your mind. You can have excellent thoughts without negativism.

When you subject your thoughts to the Word, you have thoughts of love, glory, excellence, and progress! Let the Word of God dominate your thoughts; let it control what you retain in your mind. His Word tells us what to think and how to think. So, change your thoughts if they’re not consistent with the Word.

Someone might ask, “What if I’m trying to change my thoughts and the thoughts just keep coming back?” If you’ve received the Holy Spirit, that’s not a problem at all. That’s one of the things He can help you with; remember, He’s your helper (John 14:16 AMP). Part of His ministry in your life is to help you achieve focus; anything you want to focus your mind on is possible by the power of the Holy Spirit. He can help you change your thoughts if you ask Him.

Go Deeper: Proverbs 4:23 GNB; Proverbs 12:5; Act 8:22 CEV

Pray

Dear Father, thank you for the cleansing power of your Word, which purifies my heart from all unrighteousness. My thoughts today, are pure, just, lovely, and excellent. As your Spirit unveils the mysteries of your Word to me, my thoughts are adjusted to see things only in that perspective, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

USE YOUR MIND BY PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME

USE YOUR MIND PASTOR CHRIS

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God” (Romans 12:2).

The focus of Romans chapter 12 is the subject of thoughts—the use of your mind. Your mind is an instrument given to you by God to improve your life from glory to glory. You have to see first in your mind the things you desire for your life, and create them. Thoughts are pictures of the mind that have power and create realities.

The quickest way to affect your thoughts is through mental pictures. Every man is the character of his thoughts. Your mind can make you poor or make you rich; it can put you in a place of glory or in a place of dishonour. The Bible tells us about Lazarus, a righteous man who was a beggar (Luke 16:20-21). When he died, he was carried by the angels to Abraham’s bosom, but he lived and died a beggar, not because that was his destiny, but because that was his mindset.

Romans 12:3 says God has given to everyone the measure of faith; so it’s about what you do with your faith. If Lazarus had projected himself in faith, envisioning his rich heritage as the seed of Abraham, he wouldn’t have remained poor. Use your mind to focus, and project yourself to your next greater level. However, don’t disdain or berate others who’re yet to attain your level of reasoning. Don’t compare yourself with them; rather, understand that each of is at a different level of faith, and gifted differently. How do you think? Jesus often challenged the Jews to think right. Use your mind correctly, to picture your glorious and victorious life in Christ.

CHRISTIAN SONGS

Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit

BE A ROLE MODEL
(You Can Mentor Others For The Lord)

TO THE BIBLE Matthew 28:19-20 CEV

“Go to the people of all nations and make them my disciples. Baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to do everything I have told you…”

LET’S TALK
Perhaps you want to become a surgeon, an architect, a nurse, a teacher, a pilot, or a preacher in the near future; no matter what you dream of becoming, it’s not going to happen overnight. For example, if you want to become a surgeon, you’ll have to be instructed over several years on the rudiments and intricacies of the medical field.

Becoming effective in spiritual things is no different. In the same way that a teacher trains his students to be proficient in a subject; God wants you to train those you win to Christ and make them competent in living the God-life. In Matthew 28:20, Jesus said, “…instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you….” (MSG). You may say, “But I’ve not been a Christian that long; I only gave my life to Christ 6 months ago. What can I possibly teach someone else?” You don’t have to wait till you’ve been a Christian for several years before you raise others. From the time you received Christ and started learning God’s Word, you became responsible for someone else who doesn’t know as much as you.

So, take up that divine responsibility today, and begin to train others in the way of the Lord. You’ve already been empowered to do this.

GO DEEPER
1 Timothy 4:12
Take Heed to Your Ministry
Let no one [a]despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, [b]in spirit, in faith, in purity.

Romans 15:1-3
Bearing Others’ Burdens
We then who are strong ought to bear with the [a]scruples of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, leading to [b]edification. 3 For even Christ did not please Himself; but as it is written, “The reproaches of those who reproached You fell on Me.”

PRAY
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for empowering me to raise others for you. I thank you for counting me faithful and putting me into this ministry. I’m making a difference in my sphere of contact, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

ALWAYS ACKNOWLEDGE GOD’S PRESENCE AND WORK IN YOU , AS JESUS CHRIST DID.

ACKNOWLEDGE HIS PRESENCE AND MINISTRY IN YOU ;

…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you) … (Hebrews 13:5 AMPC).

As a child of God, you’re never alone; you’ll never walk alone, because the Holy Spirit is in you. He lives in and with you always. Part of His ministry in your life is to stay in fellowship with you, strengthening your faith and stirring up courage in you to do the will of God, and fulfil your calling. Encourage His work and ministry in your life through your conscious appreciation of His indwelling and abiding presence. When you’re out on evangelism, witnessing to others about Christ, be conscious that He’s with you. As you minister and share the Word, you may be talking to the person from the outside, but He’s ministering to the person on the inside, confirming the Word in their hearts. He ministers along, and together, with you as your Helper.

Always acknowledge His presence and work in you, as Jesus did. Jesus said, “…the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works” (John 14:10). He recognized the Holy Spirit as the Father in Him, working in and through Him. The Holy Spirit is the Father in you; your Guide and your Keeper. Trust Him with your life. He’s the best friend and Helper you could ever have.

If you’re experiencing challenges right now, perhaps with your finances, health, academics, marriage, business, or career, don’t fret; trust the Holy Spirit. Set your attention and affection on Him; He
never fails. Read again His reassuring and comforting words to you in our opening scripture, and ponder on the emphasis: “…for He [God] Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. [I will] not, [I will] not, [I will] not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let [you] down (relax My hold on you)…. ”

PRAYER
I’m a champion for life, by the Holy Spirit who lives in me, and works in and through me. I acknowledge His presence and work in my life, and declare that He’s my guarantee of a life of everlasting success, limitless progress and victories, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY:
Matthew 28:19-20
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

John 14:26
But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
