Ok so this is my first post for December 2016 and my last post for 2016. Before I dive in, I want to thank the Owner/Publisher-Megan Mottley for allowing me to be apart of her “Divine” team, I am truly grateful that you’ve allowed me to share my gift with your audience! I pray you & Divine Magazine would reach a new and more in depth level in 2017!
Alright, I know this is a long post, but I promise it will truly bless you! Lets go…So the consistent word that has been going forth all month long for 2017 is “RESET” started by Apostle John Eckhardt (Chicago, IL) and has been moving across the nation. In order for God to do a RESET in your life you must first deal with your mind and those unwanted thoughts. I am going to be transparent here. For so long because of my great desire and longing to be married and to be a mother, I often centered my mind on such, heck it was actually my concentration, my focus. I thought about what I would be like as a wife, as a mother, what my husband would be like and so forth. I often thought about sex within the marriage which was still wrong because then I began to lust in my heart for something that wasn’t even real but was just a mere fantasy tickling my fancy (y’all know what I mean…LOL).
I had these thoughts for countless number of years, going back and forth, in and out of repentance until just recently I had had enough. I no longer wanted a fantasy but rather reality. This I am sure has been a great hindrance in God connecting me with the man He has for me among many other things He has in store for me. Y’all my focus was all off and all wrong. So when I decided I had enough, I came home and said “no more, God I don’t want to think this way anymore, I don’t want to think those thoughts that cause me to sin in my heart and against your Holy Spirit who lives in me, I’m done.” I had found going to that place in my mind was my place of comfort when I didn’t want to deal with other things going on but at the same time this place was hindering my walk and relationship with God who is my Comforter. (I’m so glad He is a merciful God). I had to break the assignment of foolish thinking off my life in Jesus Name for real!
So when I made my confession, I found myself walking in total deliverance, I know that God has done a RESET in my mind. Daily I am doing what 2Corinthians 10:5 tells me “cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God, bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ”(KJV). I am consistently confessing Philippians 2: 5 ” Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” and Philippians 4:8 “Finally my brethren, think on those things that are true, honest, just, pure, lovely, of good report; if there be any virtue, any praise, think on these things.” There is a reason why God tells us in Romans 12:2 to “renew the spirit of our mind,” our mind is the playing field for the enemy, if he can get in our minds then he can shonuff (you know what I mean) mess up and hinder some things. So I wanted to share this message before the new year, so that if you are struggling in your mind this is the time right now to get it in order. Study the word, confess the word, decree the word, ask God to RESET your mindset so that you can be available to do His will and receive all that He has for you.
Make a list of all that you desire God to RESET and watch Him do just that, but first make it up in your mind that you no longer want to think the way you use to think and on those things that are not in alignment with God’s word! Break the assignment of the enemy off your mindset in Jesus Name, command it to go! Ask God to realign your mindset with that of the mind of Christ. He did it for me and He will do it for you! I thank God for my deliverance and yours!
