More than ever before the time is now to converge our thoughts to the Mind of Christ. This year is 5778 in the Hebrew calendar and I believe we are in a season of ‘Open Gates’. This is a significant time for the Body of Christ and however much we may feel the pull of this world, we need to focus 100 percent on Jesus.
We cannot allow ourselves to waiver in our thoughts about what God is doing in our lives and the world around us. I hope this message of how to converge your thoughts to the mind of Christ will encourage and empower you in this season of Open Gates, Revival and Restoration. May your thoughts be in union with God’s thoughts!
Thoughts and circumstances will always try to compete for our attention. Learning to focus on Jesus, no matter what season we are in, is vital for our training. Why is that you may ask? It’s because we are carriers of Christ and the light of Jesus shines brightly in us because of our relationship with Him. For this reason, we always need to be aware that the enemy of this world would like nothing more than to extinguish this light in order for others not to see the love of Christ.
Thoughts and circumstances will try to compete for our attention. We must focus 100% on Jesus to converge our thoughts with the Mind of Christ!
Recently, I had a situation which reminded me to continually keep my eyes focused on Jesus. You see, being an entrepreneur has been an amazing journey of obedience. Knowing my business exists to serve leaders, by partnering with the Holy Spirit, has meant that I’ve come against opposition at times. We know that opposition can come in many shapes including through a member of our own household. During a recent difficult situation in my family, I cried out to God for help and went directly to my Bible where I read the answer”
“For although we live in the natural realm, we don’t wage a military campaign employing human weapons, using manipulation to achieve our aims. Instead, our spiritual weapons are energized with divine power to effectively dismantle the defenses behind which people hide. We can demolish every deceptive fantasy that opposes God and break through every arrogant attitude that is raised up in defiance of the true knowledge of God. We capture, like prisoners of war, every thought and insist that it bow in obedience to the Anointed One. Since we are armed with such dynamic weaponry, we stand ready to punish any trace of rebellion, as soon as you choose complete obedience.” (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
This verse illuminated that I was not tapping into the source—Jesus! We are equipped with spiritual weapons by God that we can use to dismantle words spoken over us that are trying to penetrate our minds. We have to take our spiritual weapons out and use them in order to defeat the enemy of this world from trying to infiltrate our mind.
Four steps to converge your thoughts to the Mind Of Christ:
- Empowered by God you can dismantle any stronghold. (Since a stronghold is a lie from the enemy, we need to choose to believe only in God’s promises for us);
- We can demolish any dispute, judgement, belief, or viewpoint about ourselves by converging or being unified to the mind of Christ. This means allowing God’s Word and the Holy Spirit to work in our lives by surrendering all control over to Jesus.
- Take captive any thought that is against God’s Word about yourself. The only person who can really tell you something about you is the ONE WHO CREATED YOU—God! Go to His word daily for the truth.
- Be ready to wage war against the enemy. Wearing God’s armor at all times. (Ephesians 6:10-18).
Meditating on God’s Word and remembering His calling over your life is vital. Being aligned to the mind of Christ is the answer. I am here to remind you each day as you sit with Jesus, He is the author over your life and there is nothing man can say to you to take you off the path of your destiny which your Heavenly Father has designed for you. Stay prepared, ready for battle knowing that your victory is in Christ. He has already won the war!
Watch and take your thoughts captive
