Guard your thought life (3)
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. - Joshua 1:8
The only thing that qualifies your thought is the word of God. The word of God is telling us to think on His Word. When you think on God's word, the peace of God will flood your heart (verse 9). This is the outcome of thinking on God's word. It is my prayer that the God of peace will be with you.
You have to learn to close the door to Satan in your thought. You have the ability to control your thoughts, you can switch off. You can stop what you are thinking if it is unwholesome. Instead of thinking on calamity and trouble, you can switch off and think on God's report for your life.
In Genesis 11:5-7; God came down to Babel. Babel stands for confusion. They came together and said to themselves, “Let us gather together and build a tower to heaven….” Their gathering together was so great that God held a conference in heaven. God the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost had a meeting in heaven to defeat these people because if their thought is not stopped, it will succeed. Imagine, if ungodly people can accomplish big things through their thoughts how much more the believers. People are enriched by their thoughts, thinking makes you rich. Thinkers rule the world. The greatest work is thinking.
Beloved, if the ungodly has made this world like this by their thinking how much more you. Sit down to think. The devil wants us to be confused and be noisy without sitting down to think. If you can settle down and think, great things will come out of you. Think on how much of the wealth that comes into this land enters your hand? Think about what is not available here that you can create and make available for success, for increase. Do you know that money or wealth is a result of problems you solve for people? If you stop solving problems, you will not have money. If you will dare to think, nothing can limit you.
Re-program your thinking; stop thinking about what cannot happen. Involve your mind in genuine thinking. Robert Tilton said, “400 ideas come to a man every day.” Idea is wealth, pick your own, write them down, nurture them in your spirit, and incubate on them like a mother hen will do. Let them flow out of you, act on them and become successful. Through your ideas, you will change this world; you will attract others to yourself. It is my prayer that great things will come out of your life in Jesus name. You will be a great champion, a great success in the name of Jesus.
Prayer: Oh Lord I pray for spiritual insight that gives birth to foresight – Help me to see what others don’t see, lighten my path as I travel the world of wickedness in Jesus Name. I receive insight also to see treasures of darkness in Jesus Name.
