Guard your thought life (2)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God - Romans.12:2
God did not call us to struggle, He called us to access His thoughts, to confess and believe His thoughts; to think deeply like Him because the more you think like Him the more you become like Him. If God wanted Adam to help Him to create, He would have made Adam the first day. God made Adam the sixth day because God did not need him to help Him. The first day of Adam was the seventh day of God. So, God called Adam into rest. When Adam opened his eyes, he opened to plenty so he did not need to struggle.
When it comes to demonstrating the power of God, to allowing His power ooze out of you, you must think like Him. Put yourself in the place of God. Don't be afraid to become like Him because no father will be ashamed to let his son resembles Him. God is your Father and you must resemble God. Don't get apologetic about the fact that you resemble God because you are god here on earth. It is my prayer you will act like God. You will think like God. You will walk like God.
The only book that justifies us to think the way He asks us to think is the Bible. Ask yourself, how will God think on this situation?
God does not call you to worry (see Philippians 4:6). Most sicknesses in the world today come from the soul: depression, stress or suicide spirit. You see somebody just kill himself on flimsy excuse. He killed himself on the platform that he was in debt and he could not pay. It comes from the thought of desperation, looking at life as if it is all over, when tomorrow is there.
Nnamdi Azikwe, who was one of the greatest politicians in Nigeria, at a particular stage in his life was depressed. He was studying abroad and had no money to cater for himself. He got so depressed that he jumped on a railway line so that he could be crushed by the train but someone who believed in him picked him up and sponsored him. He came back to Nigeria to be a colossal, a champion, the great Zik of Africa, a great politician in Nigeria. When you see him, you see intelligence talking. If not because somebody who saw a great future ahead of him picked him up, he would have died a useless death.
Many people have died for nothing, beloved; your life is not finished. God is just starting with you. Your better days are not behind you they are ahead of you. You may say you have seen better days, you have not. Go out, the world is bigger; exposure is important; think like God.
Prayer: Poverty rules where opportunities are not discovered and appreciated. Oh Lord, open my eyes to see opportunities that will lead to creativity. I refuse to take side with my predicament in Jesus Name.
