Life Success Notes

Scriptural views on prosperity

MIND-SET 2

In the last blog we started to explore the idea of renewing our minds. We learned that if we renew our minds, God will transform our lives. Here we look at God’s promises for our lives, to find some ‘mind steps’ we can take to move to where we want to be.

Our thought choices

Dock We determine, by our own thought choices, which way our life is going to go, drawing in what we constantly think about. By dwelling on the promises of God, you will develop a positive attitude of faith and be propelled towards greatness and the good things of God, just as iron filings are pulled across a desk by a magnet. Yes, if you will transform your mind, God will transform your life.

If a thought brings fear, worry, doubt or unbelief, if it makes you feel weak, inadequate or insecure, then it’s not from God and needs dismissing immediately.

… bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,… 2 Corinthians 10:5 NKJV

Instead say ‘I can do all things through Christ. I’m coming out of this. Like Joseph, whatever I put my hands to do shall prosper.’

…the LORD made all he did to prosper in his hand. Genesis 39:3 NKJV

Choose to dwell on what you have, not on what you don’t have. Dwell on the great future that God has in store for you rather than on all your problems, on thoughts of failure or loss, on all the people that have hurt you, or all the mistakes you’ve made. Your subconscious will respond to those positive thoughts and you’ll move towards a happy positive life. If you can see the invisible, God will do the impossible.

Speak affirmations
Lastly, here are some positive affirmations based on Scriptural promises. Say them out loud with emotion! Yes shout them out with conviction! That way you will hear them, and so will your subconscious. You will have started to renew your mind so that God can transform you into who He dreams you to be. God will perform His word.

I am ready to perform My word. Jeremiah 1:12 NKJV

i099aIt will not return to Him empty but will accomplish what He pleases, and will prosper in the thing for which He sent it.

So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth;
      It shall not return to Me void,
      But it shall accomplish what I please,
      And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
