Your Mind, Your Agency To Realize Your Dreams

    Proverbs 23:4

Majority of people think that the most important requirement for success is money. That is why they go for money,and all their lives, they keep on going for more of it until eventually get frustrated. With that you can not become a success.

     Success always begins with a dream. Joseph was a young man who had a dream of success. His brothers envied him for his dream and tried to kill him, and eventually sold him into slavery in Egypt.

In all their attempt they could not kill him. It is hard to kill a man with a dream. Joseph’s dream kept him alive until it eventually came to pass . If you have a dream and you are disciplined enough to pursue it, nothing can ever stop it from coming to pass. The only person that can kill your dream is you.

      Your dream in life should not just be about improving your work to  be a better place than you met it. To realize your dream you need capital, and by that,it does not necessarily mean money. Money is not the most important capital you need to realize your dream. The first and most vital capital is your mind. That is what determine whether you become a success or not.

Your mind is where earth – shaking ideas are born. Those ideas,if properly harnessed,are more valuable than money. Money is a slave of your ideas. If you nurse your ideas long enough and discipline yourself in the direction of your ideas,money will eventually come looking for you.

It is important what you set your mind upon everyday. Get rid of the wrong stuff that won’t do your mind any good and go for edifying and educative materials that will help you think right. Polish your ideas that is refine them and get ready for a great future.

Remark: When you fill your mind daily with the Word of God, your ideas are polished, your eyes are opened to see opportunities all round you.

It Is About Your Mind

Anchor verse: Proverbs 4: 23, Proverbs 23:7

Complementary verse: Romans 12: 2

Supplementary verse: Genesis 24:1

God did not approve poverty,yet some people think it is okay to be poor, and that the poorer you are,the closer you are to God. God does not want His children poor. The poor cannot help the poor, neither can the poor take the gospel to the ends of the earth.

The Lord said through the Prophet in Zechariah 1:17,”….My cities through Prosperity shall yet be spread abroad…”, He didn’t say through poverty. Don’t believe in poverty for it is not from God. If God truly saved your soul, which is so important,then He must have made provision to prosper you.

    Don’t believe anyone who tells you rich people might have a problem getting to heaven. Moses, Abraham,Isaac,Jacob, David, Solomon and many others in the Bible who walked with God in an extraordinary manner were rich, and are all in heaven. Reading from 1 Samuel 2:8 you see what God does that He “….. Lifts the poor and homeless out of the garage dump and give them places of honour in royal palaces….”

Some people have remained poor only because they inherited it from their minds,not because they were born poor. Poverty is not the state of your birth, neither is it a government – engineered problem or the absence of required necessities.

Rather,it is when a man’s mind and his mental prowess – his flow of  disabled. It is the disabling of a man’s mental prowess. That means, you can inherit poverty by thinking the way poor people think. Poverty or wealth is from inside you.

  That you don’t have a house or a car does not mean you’re poor. The question is, can you see the house or the car inside you? It is about your mind! If you can see it, you can have it! The fact that you don’t have any money in your bank account does not mean you are poor. Your status in life is not dependent on the amount of money that you touch. How much can you see in your heart?

     Success or Prosperity is from inside you. Based on who you are, and what you have on the inside,what ever finances you require would come to you. Never forget that, so work on being, and not on having.

Be Rightly Positioned Through Imaginative Power!

Anchor verse: Matthew 12 ::36-36

In Proverbs 16:29-30, the Bible says,”A violent man….shutteth his eyes to devise froward things: moving his lips he bringeth evil to pass”. It says the evil man shuts his eyes and devises evil,by moving his lips he brings them to pass. In other words,he uses his imagination to devise wickedness, and establishes them with his mouth. It is talking about the principle of meditation and it works both in the positive and in the negative.

  God is showing us how the evil mind works and therefore,how good works. Just as an evil man can work this principle and produce results,a good man can also put the principle to work and produce good results . That means you can use your imagination. Just shut your eyes and devise wonderful and glorious things.

Practice this, your Imaginative Power is your creative ability . Every so often,shut your eyes, and meditate . Contrive pictures of great things, the possibilities from the Word of God, and begin to speak them forth. Use this principle to create beautiful life for yourself and those around you .

It is one of the many reasons and benefits of prayer, because when you see those visions,write them down and bring them to pass with your faith filled proclamations.

In Matthew 12:35-36 describe a good man,who out of the abundance of his heart, brings forth good things . All the good things you deserve in life are already inside you . See, and bring them forth with your words. They already exist in the realm of the Spirit, but your words give them tangibility.

Be Rightly Positioned: Consciously See Visions With Your Spirit!

In the Acts of the Apostles (Acts 2:17) reiterated the words of the Prophet Joel in Joel 2:28. When you go through the verse you will notice that the prophet did not say,” God shall show young men Visions,” but God’s Word through the Prophet was,”…… Young men shall see visions…..” This is different from God supremely granting us visions and revelations, realities of the spirit that He unveils to us but in this case we are to consciously,with our spirits,see visions. It is part of the blessings the church is to experience in this last days.

   You can actually practice seeing visions that is the vision of your blessed life in Christ which is the visions of your triumphant and victorious life, and walk in the love,power and righteousness of Christ! If visions of fear, death, sickness, poverty and failure come to you, reject them and then switch your mind immediately to the realities of God ‘s word and refocus by reprogramming and realign yourself to see the right visions.

When you practice this, you will be amazed at what God will do in your life. It is actually interesting to note that once you are born again. It is the first He trains you to do. 2 Corinthians 5:17 says,”Therefore if any man in Christ,he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold (see),all things are become new”.  The word,”behold ” in the above verse is from a Greek word “idou” which is in Hebrew is the word”kazar”, meaning to look and see with the eyes of a prophet.

    The spirit, through the Apostle Paul wants you to see the right vision of who you are in Christ,now that you are born again, you have to see that you have a new life,see that you are a success,see that you are prospering, walking in health, strength and victory. See that you are righteous,holy,perfected in Him, and beloved of Him. See that you are the carrier as well as the effulgence of God’s glory and the dispenser of His grace,mercies and goodness to your world.

Your Prosperity Is Based On Trust

Anchor Verse: Jeremiah 17:7-8

Supplementary Verse: Isaiah 32:15

    Jeremiah 17:7-8 gives a vivid picture of what the life of the child of God ought to be. The scripture likens the believer to the tree planted by the waters, spreading out roots near the rivers; never worrying through the hottest of summers,never dropping a leaf;serene and calm through droughts, bearing fresh fruit every season ( Jeremiah 17:8).

  The reason you are so blessed is that your trust and hope are in the Lord. Therefore,He will inspire Productivity in your life and fruitfulness in all you do. This scripture is not just referring to material prosperity only because it is not all that God is interested in;He wants you to prosper in your spirit,soul and body ( 3 John 1:2) that is total prosperity.

Material prosperity is the outworking of the indwelling Power of God. The Bible however says,”……..Cursed be the man that trusteth in man and maketh flesh his arm and not in the Lord”(Jeremiah 17:5). In other words,if your trust is in man or yourself and not in the Lord, your heart will depart from the Lord. You won’t study the word nor pray as you should, consequently,this would lead to spiritual drought. When your spirit is ‘dry’, your whole life will be dry.

    So you see,it is impossible for a child of God who is a doer of the word to experience so – called spiritual drought. “Put your trust in the Lord and He will cause you to flourish as a fruitful field regardless of the harsh environment.” Nothing will be able to hinder or impede your fruitfulness, you will remain productive,in and out of season.

WHY YOU MUST PROSPER

Anchor verse: Zechariah 1:17

Complementary verse: Deuteronomy 8:18

Supplementary verse: 1Samuel 2:8

The word of God in Zechariah 1:17 shows us that it is through Prosperity that God’s kingdom can expand, and this is why Prosperity is not optional for any child of God that wants to make a great impact for the kingdom of God. One truth that you have to get into your consciousness is that God depends on His people to get His work done. He can’t just reach out of heaven and save all the souls in the world and it is going to take men and women to find the preaching of the gospel around the World. If God’s people are poor and broke,the cannot possibly lift up the world ‘s poor.

The world in which we live in is full of so much negative information, so if you want to impact nations and continents with the gospel, you got to have the money to make it happen. Television, satellite, radio and the internet are indispensable tools in getting the gospel to the millions in the world, but it cost big time money. This is why God said “My cities through Prosperity shall yet be spread abroad.” Understand that the purpose of prosperity is not to make you drive flashy cars,wear expensive clothes and live in mansion but the purpose and reason God empowers His children financially is so that they can fund the preaching of the gospel.

Everytime you give money into the gospel, one more person can receive the gospel, one more person can get a copy of the Bible to read, one more person can receive hope of a better future. Believe in Prosperity because it is through it that God builds His kingdom in the hearts of men. When you get hold of this truth, you will understand why you cannot afford to prosper. The salvation of many people in this world is dependent on your giving.

Remark: Your Prosperity is for the sake of the Gospel that is why, you can never be broke again in your life because God have located you as a kingdom – financier. He will help you increase on every side also even more in your giving.

Let us pray: Father, In the Name of Jesus, you have located me as a kingdom – financier, therefore I can never be broke another day in my life. Help me oh! God to increase even more in my giving. Amen.

Understanding Biblical Prosperity

Anchor verse: 3John 1:2

Complimentary Verse: 2 Corinthians 9:8

   Many people equate prosperity with money,riches and other material wealth. The reason many misunderstand Biblical Prosperity teaching are because they think prosperity is synonymous with materialism.

The Bible in the book of 3 John verse 2 shows us clearly that prosperity is not all about money and riches. John the Apostle in this verse wished not only that the people prospered, but that they remained in good health as their spirits and souls prospered.  The Bible says concerning Abraham that “…… the Lord had blessed Abraham in all things” ( Genesis 24:1). In other words, everything about Abraham ‘s life was flourishing – he was rich, healthy, happy, fulfilled and a blessing to everyone who came his way. He was so blessed that his nephew,Lot, also became so wealthy just for being around him. (Genesis 13:5)

     To be a prosperous man or woman is more than just having a lot of money . It is about God’s grace upon a man’s life that causes everything he is involved with to succeed exceedingly. A man who also has a lot of money but no health to enjoy it is not prospering and that is not true prosperity. The man who has lots of possessions but no peace of mind to enjoy his substance is not a prosperous man in the sight of God. Prosperity comes with happiness, peace of the mind and fulfillment.

True prosperity is not all about having good health, money and material things.  This is why is our Lord Jesus said,”Take heed, and beware of covetousness for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which the possesseth”. (Luke 12:15). True prosperity is about the life of God’s blessings and grace at work in you,in such a way that you are able to impart the same life to others also.

REMARK : True prosperity is the blessing in your life,whereby you walk in prosperity in every area of your life, having everything about you flourishing and you are a blessing to your world.

BALANCED LIFE: WORK ON YOUR MIND. PART 2

Anchor verse: Romans 12:2

Complementary verse: Isaiah 26:3

Supplementary verse: Philippians 4:8

Other verse: Proverbs 4:23

Everybody wants to progress in life. It is also the desire of everybody to attain greater level of success but this remains elusive phenomenon for many people, because they have not acted on Word. The Word of God is clear on how to have a fruitful, productive and efficient life of success. It is by the renewing of your mind,not by the renewing of your home, environment, wardrobe or bank accounts.

Why is your mind so important? It is because God has fashioned the mind as the instrument for your transformation. Your mind is unlimited in it’s potential to create whatever you desire. When you put your mind – power to work,the possibilities are endless. There are no limits to whatever you desire,when you put your mind – power to work, the possibilities are endless. There are no limits to what you can achieve and absolutely no restrictions to how high you can propel yourself in life.

Your prosperity is essentially determined by the content and quality of your mind, because with your mind you can change anything about you! You can establish a perfect structure and administration for your life, and enjoy to the utmost,the special life and blessings God has given you.

Open your mind to God’s Word through study and meditation. Don’t just gloss over or leaf through the pages of the Bible. 2 Timothy 2:1 says,”Study to show up thyself approved unto God,a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth”. Through conscious – meditation on the Word, your mind is organized,reorganized,programmed or reprogrammed. It’s content and processes are synchronized with God’s thoughts and perfect will for your life. That is what brings about transformation.

You should understand that who you are today is a function or expression of the contents and workings of your mind. Through God’s Word, you can work on your mind and change its contents and that change will show up in your life as an upgrade, reflecting in your character and the results you have in life.

REMARK: God’s Word renews your mind,transforms your life, reorganizes and reprogrammes your thoughts in the direction of God’s perfect will for your life. As you consciously make God’s Word the contemplation of your spirit, your mind is saturated with thoughts of progress and possibilities and as such you experience higher levels of glory,excellence, success, victory and prosperity.

THE BALANCED LIFE.

A balanced life according to the Word of God inspired to Apostle Paul in Colossians 1:10 which says,”That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing,being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God”. In this verse, Apostle Paul is bringing us to the understanding of God’s will for our lives. He prayed that you are to walk in the way of true righteousness, pleasing in all that you do, fruitful and productive as you mature in the rich experience of knowing Him in His fullness.

God wants your life to be fruitful in every good work. With this fruitfulness,He wants you increasing in your full,exact and experiential knowledge of Him. This is what is called “A balanced life”. The life of ever – increasing glory, that is all – round success. In this life you are making good progress in your work, your family is doing fine, your children are growing up strong in faith and in righteousness, and at the same time, you are increasing in the knowledge of God.

God’s will for you is to prosper in all things, and excel in all your endeavours. His prosperity for you,is all – encompassing: He wants you to prosper materially, physically and spiritually. The scripture 3 John 1:2 reveals God’s desire for everyone of His children. Let’s see some of the operative words in this verse. First,it says,”Beloved,I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper……” This refers to material prosperity. Secondly,it says,”….. and be in health…..”,this refers to the prosperity of your physical body. God wants you to enjoy divine health, twenty – four hours a day,three sixty – five days a year and three sixty – six on leap year.

Then thirdly,it says,”…..even as thy soul prospereth”, which means that your material and physical prosperity should follow your spiritual prosperity. The work for your material, physical and spiritual prosperity were consummated when Jesus died and rose triumphantly back to life. This therefore means that as a Christian, you are not supposed to remain poor,sick or be spiritually ineffective. The life that has been made available to you in Christ is a balanced one. It is a life of victory in the world.

Your soul prospers as you receive the word of God and lay it up in your heart,then fix your gaze on God and set aside the weight of sin that has beset you. God gave Joshua the key to God’s kind of prosperity in Joshua 1:8 which says,” This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate therein day and night,that thou mayest to observe to do according to all that is written therein, for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous,then thou shalt have good success”.

As you meditate on God’s Word all the time and observe to do it, you will have good success. The word good success means it is not the World kind of success but God’s kind of success.

Job 22:22-24 also gives some insight into this balanced life. In these verses,it shows that you must receive the word,lay it up in your heart, return to Him and put away iniquity (sin) far from your house. Then, you you will surely lay up gold as dust and continually enjoy success and prosperity, God’s way. Then Job 22:25 proves that He ( God) will defend you and everything that belongs to you.

Everyone who is born again has been called into a life of peace and prosperity. In Isaiah 26:3 the term” perfect peace” is from the Greek word” shalom”,shalom which literally means”peace”. This means “peace with prosperity” or “peace with rest of mind”. God’s plan for you is total prosperity with peace of mind to enjoy it. From this scripture it is deduced that the only requirement that the scripture gives you to live this life of peace and prosperity is that your mind should be stayed on the Lord. The Bible says,”my son, attend to my words, incline thine ear unto my sayings. Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart” (Proverbs 4:20-24). That means you give your attention to God’s Word; you station your mind on Him alone. As long as your mind is stayed on the Lord, God will keep you in prosperity with rest of mind everyday.

Prosperity with rest of mind is that which belongs to those who have arrived at the place of complete trust in the Lord. They are the ones who understand the scripture that says,”……He that is entered into his rest,he also hath ceased from his own works,as God did from his”,(Hebrews 4:10). God has called you into a life of peace with prosperity; and He has brought you into a place where there’s no struggles and no stress. Keep God’s word firmly in your heart and in your mind. Look away from everything else that distracts you, and look unto Jesus. As you do this; rest of mind will be your daily experience.

The knowledge of God is very important for every child of God. The Bible says,” Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord”.(2Peter 1:2). Do you want more grace in your life and peace multiplied unto you? Then go for the knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ.

God does not want you deficient in any area of your life. In Colossians 1:11; Paul declared that “you be strengthened with might according to God’s glorious power, unto all patience and long suffering with joyfulness”. You can be very fruitful, productive, and strong. God wants your life to be balanced; and you can actualize His desire in your life by walking in the knowledge of His Word!
