The Question is What do have? Oil? Who is your Prophet?

2Kings4:1-8 KJV

2Kgs.4.1 – Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen.
2Kgs.4.2 – And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil.
2Kgs.4.3 – Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.
2Kgs.4.4 – And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full.
2Kgs.4.5 – So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out.
2Kgs.4.6 – And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed.
2Kgs.4.7 – Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.
2Kgs.4.8 – And it fell on a day, that Elisha passed to Shunem, where was a great woman; and she constrained him to eat bread. And so it was, that as often as he passed by, he turned in thither to eat bread.

God will always use what you have! The Widow had oil. Moses had a rod, what do you have? Faith? God is going to use what you least expect for your break through.
There are problems that you cannot solve alone, there has to be a prophetic intervention and incidents of Prophetic Grace. The widow had where to run to when there was trouble. I know God is there for all of us but who is your prophet at this mortal level! Who is your spiritual father!

God sends a prophet to profit you.

By a prophet Israel was established, 2Chronicles 20:20 When a prophet appears problems disappears. So Prophet Elisha gave prophetic instructions to the widow and the widow obeyed to the later.
Prophetic instructions obeyed determines the construction of your future! Obedience is key for a divine breakthrough.
Shut the door behind you, simply meant ‘don’t tell everybody!’ Don’t doubt. Don’t be distracted! Whoever you give attention gives you direction. Shut the doors!! For focus’ sake, shut the door! To deny strange eyes and voices access shut the door! Who ever you attention gives you direction, shut the doors.
All the vessels were full, miraculous God but the woman with a high level of dignity, she went back to the prophet for more instructions! She became a market place leader in that field but still obeyed and received the prophets! “Stay humble even after the Break Through” my Spiritual Father Pst. Rogers reminds us of this everyday. Even after the Dollar Millions come, remains humble!

Receive divine debt cancellation in Jesus name, the spirit and cycle of bad debts is brocken in Jesus name. You shall invest globally divinely and debt free.
Every mountain of debt in your life, I command it to catch fire. You were made for more, you are a lender not a borrower.

THE FUTURE, MY TOMORROW.

My word my world, You Create your world by your words.

How do I speak about my tomorrow?

Oftenly many people are worried about tomorrow, they say I don’t know what tomorrow holds others say I don’t know my fate. Well those are empty words that a believer like you and me should not speak. Why? Because there is power in your words and that whatever you speak comes to life.

You are made in the image and likeness of God The Creater. What does that mean in this setting?

Genesis 1:26
[26]God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts, and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. [Ps. 104:30; Heb. 1:2; 11:3.]

This means that just like God has authority over all creation you too have the same. Part of being made in God’s image is that Adam had the capacity to make free choices. Although they were given a righteous nature, Adam and Eve made an evil choice to rebel against their Creator. In so doing, they marred the image of God within themselves, and passed that damaged likeness on to all of their descendants (Romans 5:12). Today, we still bear the image of God (James 3:9), but we also bear the scars of sin. Mentally, morally, socially, and physically, we show the effects of sin.
The good news is that when God redeems an individual, He begins to restore the original image of God, creating a “new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness” (Ephesians 4:24). That redemption is only available by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ as our Savior from the sin that separates us from God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Through Christ, we are made new creations in the likeness of God (2 Corinthians 5:17).

Made like God. I function like God.

In the beginning, God spoke and it became just like he wanted it to be. The same power lies within us.

Genesis 1:1-3
[1]IN THE beginning God (prepared, formed, fashioned, and) created the heavens and the earth. [Heb. 11:3.]
[2]The earth was without form and an empty waste, and darkness was upon the face of the very great deep. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters.
[3]And God said, Let there be light; and there was light.

Your world is without form, empty and full of darkness until you speak and command light into it!

Isaiah 55:10-11
[10]For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, [II Cor. 9:10.]
[11]So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

Every word that comes from God’s mouth has power and authority. In the same way, when we make a declaration or a confession, it is an expression of our faith. The Lord, through the prophet Isaiah, uses the example of rain. He said in the same way that it falls from the sky and waters the ground, so that seeds yield fruit for the one who sowed them and bread to the eater, so is the Word that comes from the mouth of God. It will not return to Him empty, but will accomplish everything He wants it to and will achieve the purpose for which He sent it. The Word of God is a messenger that cannot return until it has fulfilled His mission.

When you make a confession, it becomes a decree. You can confess your dreams. All you have to do is say what you believe and desire. As you confess it, you are activating the spiritual realm.
In the same way, if someone speaks a negative word, that word activates the demonic spiritual realm. This allows the demonic powers to follow you, so that everything you are saying comes to pass. On the other hand, if you declare the promises of God, you activate the angelic realm that will come to your aide so that you can reach everything you desire in your heart. Solomon said, “…you have been trapped by what you said, ensnared by the words of your mouth” (Proverbs 6:2). The sort of declarations you make will be reflected in your life, whether it is a positive word or a negative word. Decide to speak words that build you up and strengthen your faith in God.

How therefore do I boldly speak of my tomorrow? See it, Define it, believe in it, speak it and then act it by faith.

Create a positive atmosphere around you by speaking positively all through out. This will make things respond positively back to you in contrary to what expected. Scientifically it has been proven that words bounce back, and so be careful what you confess because it eventually becames.

INCREASE YOUR CAPACITY.

By Setting Your Priorities Right.

Reading widely and consistently will no doubt boost your mind muscles increasing your capacity.
The book states well in:

Proverbs 23:23-24
[23]Buy the truth and sell it not; not only that, but also get discernment and judgment, instruction and understanding.
[24]The father of the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright, in right standing with God) shall greatly rejoice, and he who becomes the father of a wise child shall have joy in him.

To ‘BUY‘ literally means ‘get’. ‘TRUTH‘ means ‘the quality or state of being ‘true’ also accuracy. Buy the truth; purchase it upon any terms, spare no pains nor cost to get it. The truth; the true and saving knowledge of God’s mind and will concerning your salvation, and the way that leads to it.
Sell it not; do not forget it nor forsake it for any worldly advantages, as ungodly men frequently do.
Understanding; whereby you may love and practise the truth known and received.

The above words reiterated by King Solomon simply tells us that only 4 things one should buy today but unfortunately, no store carries them! You need all the four unless you are not prepared to succeed in life! Well one thing is for sure, you must aspire to grow.

These four things are: truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding. Do you want them? What will you pay for them? Well, let’s say you have them and that you have been offered riches to sell them, would You? Dare not!

There is only one way to buy something. Pay for it. So buying the truth requires paying a prize for it! All buying requires ranking your desires for no man can afford everything. Set your priorities right that way you can spend well your ‘abundant’ resources. And here Solomon tells you to put truth, wisdom, instruction and understanding at the top of your list. Proverbs 4:5-7

What is the cost? 1.Truth will cost you friends, yes because most of the people prefer lies, superstitions and traditions instead of truth, proverbs 13:20. 2. Wisdom will cost you ease, for only fools believe and do anything they wish. 3. Instruction will cost you pride, for you must accept correction from others and follow accordingly. And 4.Understanding will cost you peace, for you will know the world’s insanity. Ecclesiastes 1:18.Other cost: Pleasure steals time for learning so you’ll have to do away with it! You must work hard and diligently labor for you to achieve: Study when others are sleeping, yes this way your capacity increase is guaranteed.

There are only few men with truth and wisdom in the world today. Do you want to be one of these men? Eccl 8:1, well, It’s a choice only you can make. You must diligently pursue it! Ask The Holy Spirit to reveal to you The Truth, and you shall have it in Jesus name. Ephesians 1:17-18.

Paul says that if you must boast, boast in the Lord 2Corinth 10:17. I’m privileged to have a father, a writer, a mentor, a pastor, Pst.

MY MIND, IS THE BATTLEFIELD.

Inspired by Joyce Meyer.

I desire a perfect mind-state.

Oo Lord, change my mind-state for the better

You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind. –Joyce Meyer , Battlefield of the Mind: Winning the Battle in Your Mind
This quote has energized me to pray even more for my mind and to apply more biblical principles. The word warns us in Romans 12
[2]Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

But how is my mind the battlefield?

2 Corinthians 10:4-5
[4]For the weapons of our warfare are not physical [weapons of flesh and blood], but they are mighty before God for the overthrow and destruction of strongholds,
[5][Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),

Satan bombards our mind with a cleverly devised pattern of little nagging thoughts, suspicions, doubts, fears, wonderings, reasonings and theories. He moves slowly and cautiously (after all, well-laid plans take time). Remember, he has a strategy for his warfare. He has studied us for a long time. He knows what we like and what we don’t like. He knows our insecurities, our weaknesses and our fears. He knows what bothers us most. He is willing to invest any amount of time it takes to defeat us. One of the devil’s strong points is patience and has best tactics to battle the mind because he’s pretty sure that God is also interested in the renewal of your mind.

Through careful strategy and cunning deceit, Satan attempts to set up “strongholds” in our mind. A stronghold is an area in which we are held in bondage (in prison) due to a certain way of thinking. In this passage, the Apostle Paul tells us that we have the weapons we need to overcome Satan’s strongholds. Verse 5 shows us clearly the location of the battlefield on which this warfare is waged. The mind is the battlefield, your mind.

Guard Your Mind from Garbage:
One most important thing to learn in this battle for the mind is guarding your mind from garbage. The old cliché from the early days of the computer — GIGO, garbage in/garbage out – is still true today. If you put bad data into a computer, you will get bad results out. If you put mental garbage into your mind, you will get garbage out in your life. Proverbs 15:14 : “A wise person is hungry for knowledge, while the fool feeds on trash” (NLT). Any nutritionist will tell you that there are three kinds of food for your physical body. There is brain food that makes you smarter (food that actually makes you smarter!). There is junk food, which is simple calories — it’s not poison, but it’s just empty calories. And then there are toxic foods, which are poison.
The same is true in what you see, what you hear, and what you allow into your mind. Some food is brain food. It will make you smarter, more godly, and more mature emotionally. Then there is junk food. There is so much you can fill your mind with that really is just stuffing. It is neither good nor bad, as 1 Corinthians 6:12 says, lawful but not helpful. In other words, some things aren’t necessarily wrong, but they aren’t necessary. The Bible tells us to fill our minds with the right things. If you want to be healthy and “successful” in the Christian life and in ministering to others, successful in your ministry, fix your mind on the right things.
By the way, some people say, “God hasn’t called me to be successful. He’s called me to be faithful.” That’s just not true. The Bible says God expects not only faithfulness but also fruitfulness. Trace it through Scriptures. “I chose you . . . that you should go and bear fruit” ( John 15:16 ). Jesus cursed a fig tree because it didn’t bear fruit ( Matthew 21:19 ) — that’s how important fruitfulness is. Faithfulness is only half the equation. God expects fruitfulness as well.

Apply the two-rule Bible principles:

Philippians 4:6-8
[6]Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
[7]And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
[8]For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

The above scriptures gives us two ways to guard our minds: conversational prayer and concentrated focusing.

The first way you guard your heart and mind is “in everything” to pray. Then Paul says to think about “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise.” Notice that he says to pray about everything. If you were to pray as much as you worry, you would have a lot less to worry about. Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything . This kind of prayer is like a running conversation — which means we are not on our knees. We don’t close our eyes. –James 5[16]Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].

Yes prayer is the Key that unlocks hidden treasures.

Second, Paul says that we should fix our thoughts. “Think about these things.” How do you do that? By concentrated focusing. This is one of the keys to overcoming temptation: don’t merely resist it; replace it. Whatever you merely resist persists. The more you hit a nail, the harder you drive it into the wood. And when people say I don’t want to think about this , what are they doing? They are thinking about it! And whatever gets your focus gets you. James tells us that “sin when it is fully grown brings forth death” ( James 1:15 ). So don’t merely resist it. –Colossians 3:1-2
[1]IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. [Ps. 110:1.]
[2]And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.

Learn continuously without ceasing: The word urges us to listen to advise, accept discipline so that at the end we may be counted among the wise – Proverbs 19:20. Never let up on learning. Become a lifelong learner. Learn every second of your time, Love knowledge. Love wisdom. Learn to love the act of learning. The word disciple means “Learner.” You cannot be a disciple of Christ without being a learner. Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden [by the way, that sounds like a felt need!], and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me” ( Matthew 11:28–29 ). What do you do when you take on a yoke? You share a burden with another animal. You lighten a load. And Jesus wants us to learn from him. Learn and do. Read and do. Don’t just read or learn then trash be a doer of the word like James 1:22-25 teaches us.

There are five levels of learning in this setting : The first two have to do with knowing. The second two have to do with being. And the third one has to do with doing.

1) Knowledge – First, we need to learn knowledge . God says in Hosea 4:6 , “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” When we don’t know the Word of God, we can be destroyed. And we need to know not only the Bible but also church history. Sadly, you can learn the Bible without really knowing it; in other words, you can know all the facts without really knowing the content. You don’t really know something until you apply it. That’s why Jesus implies to the Pharisees that their problem isn’t that they don’t know Scripture but that they don’t know the power of God ( Mark 12:24 ). 2)Perspective (Wisdom) –The second thing we need is perspective. The Bible calls this perspective “wisdom.” Wisdom is found in seeing life from God’s viewpoint. It is seeing from God’s perspective. Knowledge is knowing what God does; wisdom and perspective are knowing why he does it. Knowledge is the bottom rung; perspective is the next building block above it. God revealed his acts. The children of Israel saw the miracles. They saw the Red Sea split. They saw the water at Marah. They saw the doves and the manna and much more. They saw the acts of God. But Moses knew the ways of God. He knew why God had done those things. They had knowledge, but Moses also had perspective. In knowledge, the goal is to know the Word of God; but in perspective, the goal is to have the mind of God as much as possible. So we want to develop for ourselves, and to help others develop, the mind of Christ ( 1 Corinthians 2:14–16 ;
Philippians 2:5–11 ).

3) Conviction – Conviction is the third building block, as these build on each other. We pursue knowledge of the Word, then perspective on why God does what he does, and, in doing so, we start to develop convictions.
What is God’s perspective on temptation? What is God’s perspective on evil? What is God’s perspective on our past, our present, and our future? What is God’s perspective on sin? What is God’s perspective on Satan? Once we start getting perspective, we begin developing convictions.
Conviction is not opinion. Opinion is something you argue about; conviction is something you die for. And what we need today as much as ever are men and women of godly, biblical convictions. In conviction we want the heart of God. We don’t want only to see what God sees but also to feel what God feels — about the world, about the lost, about his Word, about his church. We need to learn knowledge. Then we need to add to that God’s perspective. But then we need to add to the convictions that come out of knowing the mind of God.

4) Character – Once we begin to develop convictions, we start developing habits — and the sum total of our habits is what we can call “character.” We cannot say that we have the character of honesty unless we are habitually honest. We cannot say we have the character of kindness unless we are habitually kind. Character is the sum total of our habits. You develop character by developing the habits of love and joy and peace and patience — those nine qualities from Galatians 5 — kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control (verses 22–23). What are these fruit of the Spirit? They are a perfect picture of the character of Christ. If we want to become like Jesus, then we must seek the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. The goal is to become more like God in our character, not to become gods. We never will become God — no matter how much fruit we produce. We will never be mini-gods. We are not God. That’s the oldest lie in the book, that we “will be like God” ( Genesis 3:5 ). We need to learn character.

5) Skill – When we begin to develop character and do good habitually — daily Bible reading, regular fasting, regular prayer, regular days of prayer, regular witnessing — when these become the habits of our lives, the more we do them, the better we will get at them. And so we come to the last level of learning: skill. Skill comes through doing something over and over and over.
Ecclesiastes 10:10 says, “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success” (NIV). That is one of my “life verses.” If you are chopping wood, it helps to have a sharp ax. If you have a dull ax, it takes more energy to cut the wood. But if you have a sharp ax, it doesn’t take as much energy.
“Skill will bring success.” It doesn’t say here that prayer will bring success. It doesn’t say that desire will bring success. It doesn’t say it’s dedication. But skill will bring success. A farmer can pray all he wants, but if he tries to harvest a wheat field with a grape picker, the job will not get done. We must have the right skills.

In conclusion below are three prayer points to guide you through praying for your mind and the minds of your loved ones.

1. Pray for wisdom. That the “eyes of your heart” (mind) be enlightened divinely according to Ephesians 1:17-18
[17][For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
[18]By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones)

2. My mind shall possess divine revelation knowledge of God and his voice. I’ll be able to clearly distinguish between the voice of God and that of the enemy. May I learn to keep myself in a conducive environment with God to be able to hear from Him. 1 Kings 19:11-13
[11]And He said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord. And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
[12]And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice.
[13]When Elijah heard the voice, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, What are you doing here, Elijah?

3. I pray against the attacks of wondering Ecc 5:1, wandering Mark 11:23,24, a confused mind James 1:5-8, reasoning Matt 16:8 in Jesus mighty name. I shall be obedient to the Holy Spirit instructions (1Corinth 2:14). I shall be a doer of the word, James 1:22. I will always trust God but not human reasonings, prov 3:5 and always resolve to know nothing but Jesus Christ 1Corinth 2:12.

Be careful what you feed your mind with!!!

There is junk food, which is simple calories — it’s not poison, but it’s just empty calories. And then there are toxic foods, which are poison.
The same is true in what you see, what you hear, and what you allow into your mind. Some food is brain food. It will make you smarter, more godly, and more mature emotionally. Then there is junk food. There is so much you can fill your mind with that really is just stuffing. It is neither good nor bad, as 1 Corinthians 6:12 says, lawful but not helpful. In other words, some things aren’t necessarily wrong, but they aren’t necessary. The Bible tells us to fill our minds with the right things. If you want to be healthy and “successful” in the Christian life and in ministering to others, successful in your ministry, fix your mind on the right things.
By the way, some people say, “God hasn’t called me to be successful. He’s called me to be faithful.” That’s just not true. The Bible says God expects not only faithfulness but also fruitfulness. Trace it through Scriptures. “I chose you . . . that you should go and bear fruit” ( John 15:16 ). Jesus cursed a fig tree because it didn’t bear fruit ( Matthew 21:19 ) — that’s how important fruitfulness is. Faithfulness is only half the equation. God expects fruitfulness as well.

Apply the two-rule Bible principles:

Philippians 4:6-8
[6]Do not fret or have any anxiety about anything, but in every circumstance and in everything, by prayer and petition (definite requests), with thanksgiving, continue to make your wants known to God.
[7]And God’s peace [shall be yours, that tranquil state of a soul assured of its salvation through Christ, and so fearing nothing from God and being content with its earthly lot of whatever sort that is, that peace] which transcends all understanding shall garrison and mount guard over your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
[8]For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them].

The above scriptures gives us two ways to guard our minds: conversational prayer and concentrated focusing.

The first way you guard your heart and mind is “in everything” to pray. Then Paul says to think about “whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise.” Notice that he says to pray about everything. If you were to pray as much as you worry, you would have a lot less to worry about. Don’t worry about anything, but pray about everything . This kind of prayer is like a running conversation — which means we are not on our knees. We don’t close our eyes. –James 5[16]Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].

Second, Paul says that we should fix our thoughts. “Think about these things.” How do you do that? By concentrated focusing. This is one of the keys to overcoming temptation: don’t merely resist it; replace it. Whatever you merely resist persists. The more you hit a nail, the harder you drive it into the wood. And when people say I don’t want to think about this , what are they doing? They are thinking about it! And whatever gets your focus gets you. James tells us that “sin when it is fully grown brings forth death” ( James 1:15 ). So don’t merely resist it. –Colossians 3:1-2
[1]IF THEN you have been raised with Christ [to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead], aim at and seek the [rich, eternal treasures] that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. [Ps. 110:1.]
[2]And set your minds and keep them set on what is above (the higher things), not on the things that are on the earth.

Learn continuously without ceasing: The word urges us to listen to advise, accept discipline so that at the end we may be counted among the wise – Proverbs 19:20. Never let up on learning. Become a lifelong learner. Learn every second of your time, Love knowledge. Love wisdom. Learn to love the act of learning. The word disciple means “Learner.” You cannot be a disciple of Christ without being a learner. Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden [by the way, that sounds like a felt need!], and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me” ( Matthew 11:28–29 ). What do you do when you take on a yoke? You share a burden with another animal. You lighten a load. And Jesus wants us to learn from him. Learn and do. Read and do. Don’t just read or learn then trash be a doer of the word like James 1:22-25 teaches us.

There are five levels of learning: The first two have to do with knowing. The second two have to do with being. And the third one has to do with doing.

1) Knowledge – First, we need to learn knowledge . God says in Hosea 4:6 , “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.” When we don’t know the Word of God, we can be destroyed. And we need to know not only the Bible but also church history. Sadly, you can learn the Bible without really knowing it; in other words, you can know all the facts without really knowing the content. You don’t really know something until you apply it. That’s why Jesus implies to the Pharisees that their problem isn’t that they don’t know Scripture but that they don’t know the power of God ( Mark 12:24 ). 2)Perspective (Wisdom) –The second thing we need is perspective. The Bible calls this perspective “wisdom.” Wisdom is found in seeing life from God’s viewpoint. It is seeing from God’s perspective. Knowledge is knowing what God does; wisdom and perspective are knowing why he does it. Knowledge is the bottom rung; perspective is the next building block above it. God revealed his acts. The children of Israel saw the miracles. They saw the Red Sea split. They saw the water at Marah. They saw the doves and the manna and much more. They saw the acts of God. But Moses knew the ways of God. He knew why God had done those things. They had knowledge, but Moses also had perspective. In knowledge, the goal is to know the Word of God; but in perspective, the goal is to have the mind of God as much as possible. So we want to develop for ourselves, and to help others develop, the mind of Christ ( 1 Corinthians 2:14–16 ;
Philippians 2:5–11 ).

3) Conviction – Conviction is the third building block, as these build on each other. We pursue knowledge of the Word, then perspective on why God does what he does, and, in doing so, we start to develop convictions.
What is God’s perspective on temptation? What is God’s perspective on evil? What is God’s perspective on our past, our present, and our future? What is God’s perspective on sin? What is God’s perspective on Satan? Once we start getting perspective, we begin developing convictions.
Conviction is not opinion. Opinion is something you argue about; conviction is something you die for. And what we need today as much as ever are men and women of godly, biblical convictions. In conviction we want the heart of God. We don’t want only to see what God sees but also to feel what God feels — about the world, about the lost, about his Word, about his church. We need to learn knowledge. Then we need to add to that God’s perspective. But then we need to add to the convictions that come out of knowing the mind of God.

4) Character – Once we begin to develop convictions, we start developing habits — and the sum total of our habits is what we can call “character.” We cannot say that we have the character of honesty unless we are habitually honest. We cannot say we have the character of kindness unless we are habitually kind. Character is the sum total of our habits. You develop character by developing the habits of love and joy and peace and patience — those nine qualities from Galatians 5 — kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control (verses 22–23). What are these fruit of the Spirit? They are a perfect picture of the character of Christ. If we want to become like Jesus, then we must seek the fruit of the Spirit in our lives. The goal is to become more like God in our character, not to become gods. We never will become God — no matter how much fruit we produce. We will never be mini-gods. We are not God. That’s the oldest lie in the book, that we “will be like God” ( Genesis 3:5 ). We need to learn character.

5) Skill – When we begin to develop character and do good habitually — daily Bible reading, regular fasting, regular prayer, regular days of prayer, regular witnessing — when these become the habits of our lives, the more we do them, the better we will get at them. And so we come to the last level of learning: skill. Skill comes through doing something over and over and over.
Ecclesiastes 10:10 says, “If the ax is dull and its edge unsharpened, more strength is needed, but skill will bring success” (NIV). That is one of my “life verses.” If you are chopping wood, it helps to have a sharp ax. If you have a dull ax, it takes more energy to cut the wood. But if you have a sharp ax, it doesn’t take as much energy.
“Skill will bring success.” It doesn’t say here that prayer will bring success. It doesn’t say that desire will bring success. It doesn’t say it’s dedication. But skill will bring success. A farmer can pray all he wants, but if he tries to harvest a wheat field with a grape picker, the job will not get done. We must have the right skills.

In conclusion below are three prayer points for your mind and the minds of your loved ones.

1. Pray for wisdom. That the “eyes of your heart” (mind) be enlightened divinely according to Ephesians 1:17-18
[17][For I always pray to] the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, that He may grant you a spirit of wisdom and revelation [of insight into mysteries and secrets] in the [deep and intimate] knowledge of Him,
[18]By having the eyes of your heart flooded with light, so that you can know and understand the hope to which He has called you, and how rich is His glorious inheritance in the saints (His set-apart ones)

2. My mind shall possess divine revelation knowledge of God and his voice. I’ll be able to clearly distinguish between the voice of God and that of the enemy. May I learn to keep myself in a conducive environment with God to be able to hear from Him. 1 Kings 19:11-13
[11]And He said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord. And behold, the Lord passed by, and a great and strong wind rent the mountains and broke in pieces the rocks before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind; and after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake;
[12]And after the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire [a sound of gentle stillness and] a still, small voice.
[13]When Elijah heard the voice, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave. And behold, there came a voice to him and said, What are you doing here, Elijah?

3. I pray against the attacks of wondering Ecc 5:1, wandering Mark 11:23,24, a confused mind James 1:5-8, reasoning Matt 16:8 in Jesus mighty name. I shall be obedient to the Holy Spirit instructions (1Corinth 2:14). I shall be a doer of the word, James 1:22. I will always trust God but not human reasonings, prof 3:5 and always resolve to know nothing but Jesus Christ 1Corinth 2:12.

Be careful what you feed your mind with!!!

THE ENEMY WITHIN

THE SPY AGAINST MY PROGRESS.

I’ve been praying for the enemy within and is my major prayer item this week. Allow me to share..

God’s got you, fear not

Galatians 2:1-4
[1]THEN AFTER [an interval] of fourteen years I again went up to Jerusalem. [This time I went] with Barnabas, taking Titus along with [me] also.
[2]I went because it was specially and divinely revealed to me that I should go, and I put before them the Gospel [declaring to them that] which I preach among the Gentiles. However, [I presented the matter] privately before those of repute, [for I wanted to make certain, by thus at first confining my communication to this private conference] that I was not running or had not run in vain [guarding against being discredited either in what I was planning to do or had already done].
[3]But [all went well!] even Titus, who was with me, was not compelled [as some had anticipated] to be circumcised, although he was a Greek.
[4][My precaution was] because of false brethren who had been secretly smuggled in [to the Christian brotherhood]; they had slipped in to spy on our liberty and the freedom which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might again bring us into bondage [under the Law of Moses]. (Amp)

Actually the emphasis is on verse 4 but the first 3 are important to get you understand.

The enemy within

An enemy is an hostile person or group of people around you. Usually it is hard to know them because they exist as good friends (frenemies) they are the false brethren around you and your loved ones. Be careful of them.

Below are some prayer points to help you pray:
1. Pray for God’s cover against such enemies. You, your loved ones are covered by the blood of Jesus and the enemies plans shall not prosper in your life in Jesus name. Bring your your loved ones under the covenant of Jesus Christ.
2. Pray to be sensitive in the spirit so that you are not caught unawares by the enemy(ies) around you and your loved ones. Gal 2:4. Pray to be super sensitive in the spirit. God grants us what we ask of him.
3. Possess the Spirit of Discernment. God grace me with the spirit of discernment. Phil 1:9-10 may I/you be able to know various spiritual agents for their moral/immoral influence. These agents are: from within the humanity. May the Lord give me and you the spirit of discernment so that we are able to know what is going on around us. The enemy shall not trap us successfully in Jesus mighty name.
4. Spies. There is an enemy spying on your daily progress and reporting… Read Gal 2:4 in bits, Paul and his group faced this how about you and me. The enemy is happy when you are struggling, sad, begging, crying in bondage always and make sure you never have a positive progress to destroy the joy of the Lord and to spy out our liberty. I decree and declare that whatever the agenda the ungodly men have, God is destroying the in Jesus name. May there agendas perish with them.

I pray you be blessed. I love you.

GOD HEALED ME.

Salvation works.

It’s has been almost two years now since I was born again but since then I have always experienced God in different ways from one moment to another. This last encounter with Jesus was so mysterious that I have to testify. The Bible says in Psalm 22:22, I will praise you to all my brothers; I will stand up before the congregation and testify of the wonderful things you have done.

Dig yourself deep in the Lord and you shall be able overcome every kind of storm that comes your way. You are a Victor in Jesus name.

My Testimony:

Three days ago I was seriously bed ridden with every single part in my body aching
