When I started seeking God, there was one verse which struck me. It affected me so much because it was something I had to do. CHANGE MY MIND.
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations and every high thought that exhalts itself against the knowledge of God.
So what are these high thoughts? All thoughts that don’t line up with the word of God. Ie: failure, rejection, worldly lusts.
And where did these high thoughts come from? They come from your eargate, eyegate, how you were raised, your culture, your family etc.
We become specialists in the world’s system, because it has become our norm. We don’t see anything wrong with how we live, because at the end of the day, “everybody is right” (democracy).
However, being smart in the world will not stop the devil from beating you upside your head, it will not save your marriage and it sure won’t heal you from cancer!
Reality tv, social media, Rihanna, Beyonce have become our bibles. How you gonna be listening to a song that’s praising single ladies and that person is married? Think about it, the deception is so real.
It’s funny how we are quick to listen to a creation, who says “leave your girl, plenty girl outa road”, “you wasn’t man enough for me”, ” love doesn’t live here”, ” or imma kill u when I see you” …. ok… Yet we question God’s word (our creator) every time.
I realised I have been a fool. I let the enemy deceive me and when I fell, he laughed at me. Don’t get caught up in the hype. Arise and go back to the Father, why lie down with pigs and die? (prodigal son)
Let God’s word manifest in your heart. Let God’s thoughts become your stronghold. There is a way that SEEMS right, but the end of it is destruction. And, there is also a way that IS rite! Chose wisely.
Change your mind, God’s plans for you are good, to give you an expected end (JEREMIAH 29:11).
