To change your handset
All you would need is money
But to change your mindset?
Hmmm! Let us talk about it
There were three believers. They all had faced difficult situations, temptations, struggles and victories in their lives. They carry the memories of these difficult situations in a bag hung on their back called ‘BURDENS’. All the victories were hung in a bag on their chest called VICTORIES’. Let us see how each one faces life.
Having had many failures, the first believer often remembers his failures. He thinks he will not be successful anymore. Fear of the unknown rules his heart. He has lost all hope and is depressed. He worries about the future and has no will to carry on, He always ponders on his past failures. ‘I did not study well, I lost my job, I fell sick and so on. Now what will I do. He is unable to progress in life and is stationary. His ‘BURDENS’ bag is so full that it pulls him backwards. His ‘VICTORIES’ bag is empty. He is blinded by the devil and has forgotten his position in Jesus Christ as a believer. He has a defeated mindset.
The second believer also had failures in life like the first believer, but amidst this he also trusts in God. He carries some of his old burdens and sorrows with him. His “BURDENS’ bag is half full and he has got some victories. He goes ahead and makes some progress. He has got a progressive mindset.
The third believer has also had failures in life like the other believers. But now he has chosen to completely trust in God. He keeps His faith on God and always looks ahead to the Lord Jesus. He spends every moment Thanking and Praising God. He prays and reads the Bible, seriously. He has cut his ‘BURDENS bag at the bottom and everything that is put there falls out. His VICTORIES’ victories bag is full and under the weight of that bag he is pulled forward to more victories. He runs ahead to more victories in Jesus Christ. His ‘BURDENS’ bag is empty. He has got a victorious mindset.
How do we renew our mindset? The Bible speaks in Rom 12:2 about renewing our mind. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Don’t you want to renew your mindset ? Yes, we all want a renewed mindset. As you read and meditate on the Bible the Holy Spirit works in you and renews your mind. Everything has a beginning. To go towards victory one has to start today. Today let us break free from everything that holds us back. In Jesus name, today you can overcome a defeated mindset which God has not intended for you. Let us receive a victorious mindset that God wants us to have.
Prayer: Loving, Heavenly Father. As I read you Word please let my mind be renewed. Let your Holy Spirit work in my life. I yield to your ways and to your will. Lead me to become all that you created me for. Let me do all that you want me to do each day. I thank you for hearing my prayer. In Jesus name I pray. Amen.
