    “And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.” Luke 22:31-32

    The scripture above says much about the Mind-set of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Satan has desired to have Simon Peter. He wanted to make him nothing when Christ has already declared him somebody. Satan goal is to sewer the good out of every living soul.

    In Matthew 16:16-19, Simon Peter just declared that Christ is the Son of the living God. Upon that declaration, Christ gave a life time task to Peter to build His church (Redeemed people of God) and gave him power and authority that the gates of hell (Satan kingdom) will not be able to prevail. Satan knew that with the transformed mind of Simon Peter and the authority given to him by Christ, his kingdom was in jeopardy. So, Satan would rather rob Peter of the perfect gifts given to him by the Lord.

    The Mind-set of our Saviour Jesus Christ is my focus. If I told you that God has made you somebody but Satan want to make you nobody, what will be your reaction? I can guess what your reaction will be. You will be angry in your spirit against the devil. Before I raise prayer points for you, you will be praying already. But Jesus would not want you and me to focus on the devil. Why? He want us to focus on FAITH. When we build our FAITH on the living God, Satan has no choice but to bow. Remember, ‘’For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our FAITH.’’ 1stJohn 5:4   

    Jesus did not start binding the devil. He did not start describing how wicked the devil is. He did not put fear in the heart of Peter. He did not magnify the desires of Satan against Peter. He did not give Peter prayer points on how to nullify the desires of the devil. HIS MIND-SET WAS TO BUILD THE FAITH OF SIMON PETER. So let the Mind of Christ dwell in you richly. Colossians 3:16

    As ministers of the gospel, are we building Faith in people in the living God or building fear in the people of God?

    As a minister of the gospel, are you praying for the Faith of the people to grow or you enjoy them coming to you from time to time for prayers for Cockroach to leave their apartment?

    Are you a Faith-Builder or a foundation of the people’s problem digger?

    As a child of God, do you focus on the proposed plans of the devil or your focus is on the finished work of Christ for you?

    Is your Mind on strengthening believers’ Faith and Trust in God or you enjoy establishing Facts, Fallacies, Falsehoods and Fears in all your meetings?

    Focusing on the essential thing (FAITH) is what our Lord prayed for. If our Faith fail not, when temptations, trials and buffeting of the devil comes, we are sure to overcome. FAITH IS ABOVE ALL… Ephesians 6: 16 ‘’Above all, taking the shield of Faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.’’ FAITH is above all the other weapons because we need FAITH to possess them in the first place. Jesus knew this and He set the Mind of Peter on this major ingredient in our Christian walk.

    In Luke chapter 10, Jesus appointed and sent seventy disciples to go and preach in the cities. The seventy returned with joy that the devils submitted to them Luke 10:17-20. Our Lord gave them power over the devils. It is the power of FAITH. In verse 20, Jesus set their MINDS on one essential thing, ‘’But rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.’’ In Ephesians 2:8, we are saved by Grace through FAITH. The salvation of our soul is more important than the numbers of devils we cast out.

    The Mind of Christ is the Mind of FAITH. In fact, in the scriptures He says, will He find FAITH on earth when He returns? He is talking about you and me. Will Christ find Faith and Faithfulness in you and me? The Bible says, ‘’Let this Mind be in you which was also in Jesus Christ.’’ It is the Mind of Faith! It is the prayer of Faith! It is the Preaching of Faith! It is the Lifestyle of Faith. Read Hebrews chapter eleven (11) and you will discover that, Faith is the only essential thing required in our Christian life. We live by Faith Galatians 2:20… The righteousness of God is revealed from Faith to Faith. James 2:5

     Jesus focused the Mind of Simon Peter on FAITH, Prayer of Faith and not on mere desires of Satan. Jesus gave one singular assignment to Simon Peter and that is the same assignment He has given the church, TO STRENGTHEN THE FAITH, EMPOWER FAITH, BUILD THE FAITH OF BRETHREN.

    I pray for you today, that your FAITH will not fail in the trials and battles of life. I pray that your Mind will be focus on the finished work of Christ and not on the mere desires of Satan concerning you. I pray that God increase you power and authority of FAITH to stop all the devices of the wicked (Satan). The prayer of Jesus will be your prayer points. Receive grace today to build the FAITH of brethren in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    Fulfilling purpose keeps me excited

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    “And David inquired of the LORD, saying, Shall I go up to the Philistines? Wilt thou deliver them into my mine hand? And the LORD said unto David, Go up: for I will doubtless deliver the Philistines into thine hand” 2Samuel 5:19

    King David was a man of war and the Philistines were set of people he and his team had conquered in battle before. He defeated their capital, Goliath, in battle. The nations around Israel were afraid of them because of the man David who was skilful, strategic and strong in battle because the Lord God was with him.

    The Mind-set of David was not to rely on his victory over the Philistines in the past but yet sought the face of the LORD on this new fight against them. Many are falling today in Christianity and Ministry because they rely on the victory of yesterday to fight the sophisticated battle of today. The sophistication in technology and all forms of devices available today, are not stronger and more powerful than our Saviour. But wrong Mind-sets in fighting the battle over our enemy could lead to defeat.

    Yesterday’s grace is not sufficient for today.

    Yesterday’s anointing is not fresh for today’s battle.

    The faith of yesterday needs to be further built to win today.

    Victory of yesterday does not guaranteed the victory of today.

    The prayer of yesterday is not enough for today

    The Bible study of yesterday is not enough for today.

    The methods and strategies of yesterday may not be necessary for today.

    The weapons of war of yesterday are not the same weapon used in today’s war.

    The knowledge and wisdom of yesterday, is not sufficient for today. We need a better and higher understanding today.

    Our God of yesterday, is the same today and forever. But is ways, methods are not stereotyped.

    As David set his Mind to pray, believers must do the same. Our mind must seek the Lord at all times in all things. The smallest matter in our Christian walk, should be taken to God for His view about it. The Mind-set of saying, LORD, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE ME TO DO ON THIS MATTER

    Sometimes as believers, we rush to make decisions. It is a function of our Mind. The Mind manifest what has been programmed into it. The training we have given our Mind is what it act on. As believers, we must know how to use the word, I WILL GET BACK TO YOU in our relationships. People will come to respect us when we don’t rush into taking decision just on the sport. You don’t have to necessarily tell them you want to go and pray about it. Since they know you are a Christian, it is natural for them to think you want to go and pray about it. IT IS A GOOD MIND-SET IF YOU PRAY AND THINK THROUGH ON ISSUES BEFORE YOU GIVE YOUR ANSWERS ON THEM.

    Did King David and his men had the victory over the enemy because the King set his Mind to seek the Lord….VERSES 20-21? Now you will agree with me that our God is a dynamic God and His sons and daughters must follow the same Mind-set.

    In the same chapter Verses 22-25, the Philistines came yet again to fight with the Children of Israel and God gave King David another strategy when he set his Mind to seek the Lord… 2Samuel 5:23. The same method will not always be the solution all the time. God’s strategies are gotten in the place of PRAYER AND MEDITATION

    Your ministry needs a new strategy. Your family needs a new method to handle that challenge or project. Your business needs a new approach in marketing, management, branding, profit making. Your church needs a new programme to attract souls to the kingdom. Your personal evangelism needs a new revelation from the Holy Spirit on the chariot to join to win the Ethiopian eunuch. All these and much more will be taken care of, if we set our Mind to seek the Lord and not rely on our own understanding.

    Stop doing things as a child of God without checking through. Think Through! Pray Through!

    I pray for you today, that you will daily receive empowerment and wisdom from God. Your mind will be set to inquire from God in all things. You will not fall prey of relying on your own understanding. May you find the time to pray and think through. I pray for you today, that all the mistakes and consequences of wrong decisions and actions of the past, receive forgiveness, healing and deliverance from them in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    I celebrate you! Be healthy and wealthy in your mind!

    “And when Simon saw that through laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Ghost was given, he offered them money. Saying, give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” Acts 8:18-19

     

    Simon demonstrated a wrong Mind-set after believing in Christ (Acts 8:13). Simon was a man that used sorcery to bewitch the people in Samaria, (Acts 8:9) before his encounter with the gospel through Philip. Seeing the miracles, signs and wonders done by a genuine servant of God, is not enough to transform a satanic Mind-set to that of the type of Christ.

    Simon thought salvation, holiness of life, Holy Ghost Baptism, Fruits of the Spirit, Gift of the Spirit, Righteousness, Nature of God, Eternal Life, Healing, Deliverance, Financial Prosperity etc. could be bought with money. What a Mind-set?

    Do you also think by paying of Tithes and Offering and all kinds of offerings that will right your wrong doings without genuine repentance and turning away from your sins? Sowing the seed of money cannot take the place of sowing the seed of righteousness and holiness. Simon wanted the Power of the Holy Spirit not through entire consecration, holiness experience and faith in God. There is no short cut to the things of the kingdom and things of eternal value on our walk with God. Set your MIND on the right things.

    Simon Mind-set, was set on self-glorification. ‘’saying, give me also this power, that on whomsoever I lay hands, he may receive the Holy Ghost” When a man wants anything, he can set his mind to have it by all means. When our transformed mind is set on pleasing God, the transformed man will appropriate GRACE by all means to bring glory to God.

    Are there no servants of God today that have been influenced by the Mind-set of some of their congregation because of money?

    Are there no churches today, which are run solely on the Mind-set of making money?

    Are there no individuals in the ministry today with the mind of seeking their own glory with the gifts of God on them?

    Do you think you can use your money to get favour from the Lord without having personal encounter with Him? God does not need your money. Your financial capacity has limitation. The Holy Spirit is the Game Changer not your money.

    Why do you offer the services you render in the church of God?

    Thank God for Peter who understood the things of the Spirit. In Acts 8:20-23, Peter rebuke the man sharply. Peter was a disciple of Christ who was not ready to compromise the standard of God because of money. In verse 20 Peter said; ‘’Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.’’

    I wish I have also the time to expatiate on this verse 20. Any money you give to God’s work with a wrong Mind-set, will bring destruction on you if not repented of. The gift of God, the favour of God, the blessing of God, the miracle of God, the life of God, the peace of God, the joy of the Lord, the protection of God, the prosperity of God, the promotion from God cannot be bought with money my friend.

    When you give your money to support God’s work, it will not give you the gift of God automatically if you have not been transformed in your mind. In verse 21, Peter said to Simon; ‘’Thou hast neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right in the sight of God.’’ YOU DON’T HAVE THE GIFT/BLESSING OF GOD BECAUSE YOU GIVE MONEY, FOR YOUR HEART, MIND, SOUL, AND MOTIVE IS NOT RIGHT WITH GOD.

    Romans 12:1-2, tells us the kind of mind and lifestyle that is acceptable to God. After the initial repentance and transformation of our hearts through the acceptance of the sacrifice of Christ, the Lord require us to daily examine our lives, daily transformation of our minds by renewing our love, commitment and loyalty to Christ and Christ alone. This will help us to prove what’s good, and acceptable and perfect will of God is.

    You can be free from every wrong Mind-set making you to seek the gifts and the blessings of God with MONEY. Remember, you cannot use your money to corner God. If you are running ministry because of money, repent today. Peter counselled Simon in Acts 8: 22-23 to repent.

    I pray for you today, that true transformation of heart will be your portion. Your mind will not be deceive through money bags. I pray you will stop seeing money as a means to connect with God today in Jesus name. All the influence of money on you to compromise God’s standard, will not overpower you. Your heart will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and not self-glorification in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Your Transformation is my concern

    “But there came a messenger unto Saul saying, Haste thee, and come; for the Philistines have invaded the land. Wherefore Saul returned from pursuing after David, and went against the Philistines: therefore they called that place Selahammahlekoth.” 1st Samuel 23:27-28

    King Saul anger against David was very obvious to all Israel. King Saul set his Mind to pursue David for no just cause. His Mind-set was not to appreciate the gifting and calling of David but to be envious of him. God has used David to conquered Goliath in chapter 17 of first Samuel. Instead of him to be grateful to God for raising a youth among the people that will succeed him, he would rather seek to kill him.

    Why are you fighting and killing the dreams of young people around you today? How many lives have been wasted because of wrong Mind-set against them? God be praised today that if you focus your attention on Him, like He delivered David from the wicked Mind-set of Saul, because David maintained his ways before the Lord, He will protect you and your dreams from been short-lived in Jesus name.

    God has made His children kings and priests and He expects us to focus on the kingdom and our priesthood office. Saul’s Mind was off the kingdom. He left the caring of the subjects of the kingdom for self-serving purpose. He would rather debase himself because of David than remain in the dignified throne and administer justice, love, peace, the common wealth of Israel and God’s Mind to the people.

    IS YOUR MIND LEAVING THE ESSENTIAL AND IMPORTANT FOR THE NONESSENTIAL AND UNIMPORTANT?

    Are you pursuing a wrong cause like Saul?

    Is your Mind running after what might imprison, kill and destroy your dream?

    Is your Mind envious of others success in life?

    Is your Mind deceiving you to leave your exalted kingdom position and pursue the mundane things of this world?

    Why do you think you will succeed fighting God’s approval?

    Why is your Mind against your supporters and helpers in life? David was a helper in the kingdom but because God has chosen him to be the next king in Israel, Saul would rather want him killed than reign in his stead.

    Why would your Mind be against your neighbour when Christ admonish us to love our neighbour like ourselves?

    The anger of Saul against David was so much that anyone that identify with David was in trouble. 1st Samuel 22:17. Whenever a man set his mind against a member of a family, his mind is automatically against all the members of that family. Check your Mind-set against that man, that woman, that child in your neighbour family. Can you say 100% your hatred for one is not for all?

    There is always a consequence for manifesting a wrong Mind-set. A messenger brought the report of the consequence of Saul evil Mind-set. The Philistines have invaded the land of Israel. Saul Mind-set made him to pursue an individual (David) at the detriment of a whole nation. Anger, jealous, envy will make us leave our exalted position to pursue the things that does not matter to God’s kingdom. Beware!

    In chapter 24:1-2, Saul continue to pursue David. We are told he returned from following the Philistines not that he and his men have conquered them. He would rather pursue hard on David with three thousand men than to pursue the Philistines the obvious enemy of Israel. WHAT A MIND-SET? In verses 16-22 of chapter 24, is as if King Saul had repented from the wrong Mind-set but in 1st Samuel 26:1-2, Saul left his throne and started pursuing David again. He was supposed to appeal to David to come and support him against the Philistines the enemy of Israel.

    The devil is the real enemy not your brother, your sister, your uncle, your parents, your partner, your boss at work etc. The envy against a true child of God will not stand. Whoever set his/her Mind wrongly on a chosen child of God, will fall for it expect he/she repent.

    King Saul eventually died when the Philistines pursued after him with a strong determination to see his end. Jonathan and many strong men of Israel died in the battle because they had a king whose Mind was diverted from the real battle. Saul killed himself. He could not face the shame of been killed by the enemies he was meant to pursue initially.

    Wrong Mind-set will lead to sudden death if not repented of. There is need for transformation of the heart. No matter how wrong, wicked, callous your Mind has been, Christ Jesus have the power to save, heal and transform your heart today.

    I pray for you today, that your mind will be set on the right things. Your mind will not deceive you to ruin you. Your mind will not drive away your helpers. I pray for you today that you will not abandon your exalted position. You will be a David with the right Mind-set that will bless your enemy and allow God to intervene for you in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    “And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit. And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.” Acts 7:59-60

     

    Stephen was a man full of faith and power. He did wonders and miracles among the people. But there were certain philosophers who disagreed with his Mind-set about Christ. With all their disputing, they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spoke. When you possess the right Mind-set about the kingdom, you are endow with special grace and anointing. With all the accusations against Stephen, all that the people on the high council could see was, the radiating glory of God on him. When we possess the right Mind-set, God causes His countenance to shine upon us for His glory.

    Stephen prayed for his persecutors and killers. Saul who became Paul eventually became converted through this prayer. His Mind-Set was to pray for his enemy’s salvation. He did not see his persecutors as the enemy. He saw the devil instigating them against him. How many of us have the same Mind-set like Stephen today? What kind of prayers do we pray for our persecutors and supposedly enemies in our homes, in our churches, meetings, prayer units?

    Some have the Mind-set of praying for their persecutors to fall down and die.

    Some have the Mind-set that their supposedly enemy’s children should encounter dangers and become miserable in life when they pray.

    Some have the Mind-set of praying dangerous prayers. I searched through the Bible and from Genesis to Revelation, there is nowhere dangerous prayers was mentioned. Do you also pray dangerous prayers? What does it mean to pray dangerous prayer?

    Some have the Mind-set of attacking their persecutors. He curse me, I must curse him back. He abuse me, I must abuse him back. He stone me, I must stone him back. He pour water on me, I must pour water on him also. He hit my car, I must hit his car back. She beat my child, then I must beat her child too. He cheated me in that transaction, I must cheat him also in the next deal. The list is endless.

    Stephen never prayed that fire should fall and consume his persecutors. He never prayed that God should reward them according to their deals. He never prayed for any wicked thing to happen to them. Instead, he prayed with a LOUD VOICE, ‘’LORD, LAY NOT THIS SIN TO THEIR CHARGE’’

    Our Mind-set has made our voices to be LOUDEST when praying against our persecutors. What a Mind-set we need to correct? We must cry and pray for the salvation of souls and not the punishment of souls here on earth. It is Satan that MUST be punish and not our persecutors. It is the devil that is instigating unbelievers against us. He must be perished and sent to hell where he belongs. God does not want the death of the wicked. He does not want the persecutors to perish. He want them to come to the knowledge of the truth and be saved. Stephen understood the Mind of God, therefore, he demonstrated it.

    Stephen pardon the ignorance of his persecutors that was why he prayed that God should not lay the sin to their charge. All sin and wickedness in the land should be laid to the devil and not to the persecutors. Until we all have the Mind-set that it is grace that makes the difference in your life and theirs, you will continue to have the wrong Mind-set in your prayers about your persecutors.

    Pray the right prayers. Stop waking up around 1:00am or 2:00am everyday praying against your enemies. You have been deceived that that is when they operate and so that is the best time to attack them in their meetings. BIG LIE OF THE DEVIL. Stop denying yourself rest that is necessary for your health. It is good to wake up in the midnight to pray but not necessarily a warfare prayer against your persecutors. DON’T YOU THINK THAT IS ALSO THE BEST TIME TO INTERCEDE FOR THE SALVATION OF SOULS? It is also very good to engage your Mind to think and mediate on positive things about your life and study the scriptures and positive materials in the mid of the night.

    It is your Mind-set that has deceive you to believe that over the years. Satan and his agents operates 24/7 round the clock. When you lie in the morning, who is at operation in your mind? When you falsify accounts at noon, who is in operation? When you fight your neighbour at night, who is at operation in your Mind? The devil of course. So the devil and his demons do not just operate by 1:00am or 2:00am. He operate 24/7 in the Minds of those that allow him. But a transformed Mind have the grace and power to resist his suggestions and temptations.

    If there is a battle you must fight vehemently, it is the battle against SIN that has occupied your untransformed Mind. Christ Jesus has the power to set you free today.

    I am challenged by the life of King David in 2Samuel 1:17-27. King David lamented over his obvious enemy death. Do you rejoice over the death of your persecutors? Do you pray for them to fall down and die? When negative things happen to the members of the family of your persecutors, do you give testimony about it? Remember, God has no delight in the death of the wicked but that the wicked turn from his/her wicked ways and live. This was what Stephen realised and he prayed for the salvation of his persecutors because he had the Right Mind-set.

    Friends and foes are in our lives to fulfil the purpose of God. Keep your friendship and relationship with God intact by grace. YOU WILL PREVAIL!

    I pray for you today, that your mind will bless and curse not. Your mind will not believe the lies of the devil. I pray for you today that you will always see Christ on the cross and live for the purpose He died and resurrected again for humanity. You will be a Stephen for Christ and manifest the Mind of Jesus everywhere you find yourself in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    “And they brought up an evil report of the land which they had searched unto the children of Israel, saying, The Land, through which we have gone to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men of a great stature. 33. And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” Numbers 13:32-33

    Moses, the servant of God sent twelve (12) men, each from the twelve tribes of Israel. The search took them forty days. They were to search out the land of Canaan, (The Promised Land) and know the condition of the people and the place. Numbers 13:17-20.

    Suppose God ministered to you directly towards the end of year 2017, that year 2018 is your year of peace, progress, prosperity, health and the fulfilment of long standing promise you have been trusting Him for. As a result of all these direct revelation from God, you came into year 2018 with a lot of excitement and expectations. But suddenly, something happen in your country that brought about uncertainty of the fulfilment of all those promises. Some challenges are already showing up in the family and in your office this first month of the year threatening your Mind about the revealed word of God to you. Whose report will you set your MIND to believe? The report of your current challenges or the report of the Lord? Joshua and Caleb mind-sets were set on the report of the Lord. Numbers 14:6-9

    People give report about someone, something or situation based on their Mind-Set and perception about it. Your make-up affects your Mind-set, and your mind-set is a true reflection of you. The ten other men that went to spy the land with Joshua and Caleb, brought evil reports about the land. They expressed fear based on their Mind-sets that is yet to be transformed through faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Their mind-sets would not allow them to embrace the promise of Canaan as their possession. They saw negativities more than possibilities.

    Why set your mind on the curses from your neighbour and people when you know you cannot be curse as a redeemed child of God? Numbers 22:9-12

    Why set your mind on wrong foundation? You have been told that there are satanic foundations working against your progress in life and that has been your focus and prayer every day of your life. Let your Mind-set be on Christ foundation. His foundation will set you free. Focus on Christ principles and practice them by grace. 1st Corins 3:10

    Why set your mind on false Dreams instead of the Dream/Purpose of God for your life? Jeremiah 29:11

    Why set your mind on the lies of the devil? When your Mind-set is on the lies of the devil, you will manifest his lies. John 8:44

    Why set your mind on evil inheritance? If you believe you have inherited evil from your fore-fathers, you will continue to manifest it. Colossians 1:13-14

    Why set your mind on failures, retrogression and disappointments in life?

    Why set your mind on False Experiences Appearing Real?

    Why set your mind on the past that will never come back?

    Why set your mind on the giants in the land when He that lives in you is Greater than he that is in the world?

    Why set your mind on defeat when Jeremiah 1:17-19 is your portion?

    The other ten spies that went with Joshua and Caleb to spy the land, brought evil report because their Minds could not believe that God has given them the land, and has spoken good concerning them through His servant Moses. Numbers 10:29. To possess what belongs to you, your mind MUST be ready to receive it. Your transformed mind Must have it before arrival. They discouraged the people from a discouraged MIND. Don’t be a victim of discouraged minds this year. Separate yourself from people going nowhere this year. They see negativity in everything. They call you to give you negative news. They are critics of what is good. They don’t believe what you are doing will work and they want to discourage you from doing it. Some people’s Mind have been corrupted through envy and they will do everything within their power to influence you to follow and believe their evil report. RUN FOR YOUR LIFE FOR THEY DON’T HAVE YOUR INTEREST AT HEART.

    I pray for you today, that your mind will not dwell on evil report. You will not be one of those that will discourage others from possessing their possession. You will enjoy the ministry of encouragers that will help you to fulfil destiny. Your Mind-set will be on the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose promises cannot fail in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God wants to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    Manifesting Mindset (2)

    “And he gave heed unto them, expecting to receive something of them. Then Peter said, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.” Acts 3:5-6

     

    Peter and John went for prayers in the temple at the hour of prayers. A certain lame man was carried daily to the gate of the temple to ask alms of them that entered the temple. On this fateful day, this man went begging for alms as his manner was. His MIND-SET was to ask for what will suffice him for the day. His Mind-Set was to go to the temple daily to ask for temporary solution and not a permanent solution. He was always looking for a now, now bread and not a Bread that satisfies. He was not futuristic in his thinking. Is Mind-Set was to continue to beg for alms for life. What a mind-set?

    Are you like this man? Don’t be in a hurry to judge this man. Do you seek for permanent solution or you are just okay managing life because of your Mind-Set? You have been limited to begging and seeking for temporary help over the years because of your Mind-Set. His mind-set did not allow him to seek for healing. His mind-set did not allow him to work with his brain. On the streets of Lagos, there are Lame people helping to direct traffic. In different parts of the world, there are people who are physically handicap but are not handicap in their MIND. Some of them are in the position of authority and are well paid. Your Mind-Set have subjected you to a life of pity. I hate to be pitied. Run away from people who pity you. Set your MIND FREE.

    Thank God Peter and John set the mind of this man free indeed. “Then Peter said, silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. “Acts 3:6, 7-16

     

    Peter pointed this man to the One and Only Saviour that is all powerful to transform the minds of men. This man sat at the beautiful gate of the temple daily but that did not make his life and situation beautiful. Until you have a beautiful Mind, nothing will change. Peter gave this man a permanent solution to his lameness of the mind to have the healing of the physical lameness. The prayers/requests of this certain man over the years, was limiting him daily. But Peter came to pray an all-important prayer. Praying for silver and gold only will limit you in life. Pray that the Owner of silver and gold will fill your mind and life.

    Many a times, our requests are so limited because of our Mind-Set. We go through life with a management/scarcity mentality instead of abundance/enjoyment outlook. Please don’t get me wrong. I am not referring to a spending pattern of life without investing and generous lifestyle. The lame man was just managing his situation without seeking for an empowerment of his soul for his elevation. People went into the temple to pray and for the law to be read to them. That was what Peter and John eventually did in the temple. He wouldn’t go into the temple to listen to the word and pray but prefer begging for alms. He left his house everyday with the MIND-SET to go begging. Even if he was not allowed into the temple, a man who craves for the transformation of the MIND, would go the extra mile to get details of what was shared in the temple and not merely asking for money from the people.

     

    Why do you go to church? To sweep the floor of the building? To sing in the choir? To usher? To pray in the prayer unit? To preach to the people? To drop money in the offering bags? To do security work? Let’s look at the MIND-SET of King David; One thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the Lord, and to enquire in his temple.” Psalm 27:4

    The lame man sat at the beautiful gate of the temple every day without desiring the beauty of the LORD that is all powerful to transform his life and restore his health because of his MIND-SET. How we have missed out in the revival, outpouring of the Holy Spirit, blessings of God because of our MIND-SET. The word says; “But without thy mind would I do nothing.” Philemon 1:14

    “If you delight more in God’s gifts than in God Himself, you are practically setting up another God above Him, and this you must never do.” Charles Spurgeon. The lame man desire the gift of God more than the God of the gift. If we get our Minds right, we will not be seeking God for bread and butter alone. There is ONLY one thing competing with God on earth. It is called MONEY! You cannot serve God and money. Money does not set free. It’s the Truth that set free. All the money that the lame man had received from people over the years, could not give him freedom. Is your MIND-SET on autopilot to daily receive money and not God that gives all things that pertains to life and godliness?

    If you set your MIND on God, He will not just give you food for the day, He will give you food, money and resources to be a blessing to others. He will not just solve your accommodation problem, he will bless you with houses to accommodate others. He will not just pay your children school fees, but use you to pay the school fees of others children. Thank God the lame man was set free. YOUR ABUNDANCE LIFESTYLE IS HERE. Change your Mind-Set for a Bountiful Harvest.

    I pray for you today, that your mind will desire the right thing. Your mind will seek the Giver of silver and gold and not mere gold. May you encounter the ministration of certain men like Peter and John that will give you permanent solution to your life challenges in Jesus name, amen.

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God want to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    To your Transformation

    Manifesting Mindset (1)  

    January 1st, 2018

    2Kings 5:3 “And She said unto her mistress, Would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.”

    Happy New Year to you all. The year will yield her increase to you. You will soar higher and enjoy the rest of God. For things to really happen for you this New Year, YOU have got to make them happen. The year holds lot of promises ad prospects for YOU but you have got to actualize them through the right mind-set.

    Let’s look at the mind-set of this Hebrew maid.

    The Syrian army have gone to war with Israel and conquered the army of Israel. In the process, a little girl was one of their captive. Naaman, the captain and chief of army staff of the Syrian army, was a great man of valour, but was a leper. The leprosy was a stigma in his life and family. I am sure he would have seen the best physicians of his time without any solution. The Syrian government would have also spent tax payer’s money to get the best treatment for him around the world but all resulted in him having to manage his health challenge.

    Every day, as this little maid waited on Naaman’s wife, her mind-set was on how to get her lord to prophet Elisha in Samaria. All she could think of are the wonders and miracles of God to His people in Israel. She wanted help for the Syrians even when it was obvious that they were the enemies of Israel.

    She did not see herself as Slave but she saw herself as a Solution

    She did not see herself as Imprisoned but she saw herself as Inspired to Impact lives

    She did not fill her heart with Hatred but she saw herself as Helper of Destiny

    She did not see herself as a Foreigner but she saw herself as part of the Family of Naaman

    She did not see herself in a Wrong Place but she saw herself in the Right Place Fulfilling Purpose

    Friends, there is much to learn from this little girl Mind-set. You need to think deep to get those life lessons. What would you have done if you find yourself in her condition?

    What kind of mind-set do you manifest towards your employer, neighbours, family members, co-workers, business partners, leaders, strangers, even enemies (Roms 12:20)?

    “And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus/Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.” Luke 4: 27

    The above scripture speaks volume. May you possess the spirit of understanding. How we have limited ourselves and others because of our mind-set? This little maid made history through the Manifestation of her mind. People are halting, crying, in pains, in sorrow, and they need your help. Are you willing to help? You never can tell the impact you are making today with your mind-set, the positive effect it will make in the lives of people and it could become a reference point for generations to come.

    Are you transforming lives by your daily lifestyle?

    Are you a blessing to somebody?

    Are you helping to change the destiny of people for better?

    Are you empowering people?

    Are you adding value to others?

    Are you influencing lives positively?

    Are you paying it forward?

    Impacting others will be a function of the things we manifest. If you think and dwell on hatred, you will manifest hatred. If you think love, you will manifest love. If you manifest poverty, you will attract poverty and live in poverty.

    Thanks to the parents of this little maid who helped in the transformation of her mind. Thanks to the teachings about the values of God that she learnt from the tabernacle and temples. Thanks for all the positive influence she has received from neighbours around her before going into captivity. Thanks to this little maid who did not live her life in complaints, sorrow, accusing God for allowing her and other Jews to go into captivity. She trusted God. She knew what God could prevent in His power, He allow in His wisdom. She saw her captivity as an opportunity to be the light in darkness, a salt to sweeten the bitterness in the lives of others.

     “And be not conformed to this world but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” Romans 12:2

    Your Mind Makes You. Nothing changes until your mind changes

     “But without thy mind would I do nothing.” Philemon 1:14

    This little maid, was mindful of Naaman’s condition. That true manifestation of her mind, eventually brought healing to her master’s leprosy. How we need a transformed life and mind today. We must take the challenge to look away from our predicament, and focus on helping others with the opportunities around us. Though nothing was said about the favour and reward that Naaman gave to this little girl that saved him from leprosy, but our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ referred to how the mind-set of this maid brought healing to the leprosy of Naaman out of all the lepers in Israel.

    At age 13, Dr Myles Munroe cried to God at 3:00am and asked Him to explain to him “Why they were poor as a family? God’s answer to him was simple; God said because of your MIND…..

    I pray for you today, that your mind will not limit you in this New Year. Your mind will express grace to display the faithfulness of God in your life and family in Jesus name, amen

    The kingdom of God is the kingdom of the soul. The soul consist of your emotion, mind and will. God want to control your soul. Surrender your soul to Jesus today.

    To your Transformation

    IT’S NOT RELEVANT!

    December 31st, 2017

    Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross Colossians 2:14

    We often let past problems and mistakes form our outlook and approach to the future. Many people think they can’t enter the future without the past looming over them like a dark cloud. They expect their future to be hindered or altered somehow because of it. However, God can take the problems of the past, reshape them, and make it so they aren’t relevant to our future. Colossians 2:14 says Jesus took the incriminating evidence against us and nailed it to the cross. The verse says, “and took it out of the way.” In other words, Jesus has taken our sins, failures, weakness, and problems out of our way so we are able to say of the past, “IT’S NOT RELEVANT!”

    You don’t have to make your past relevant to your future. It doesn’t have to be a factor in formulating your outlook and actions for the upcoming year. If you need to repent and come clean in some areas, then do it now so you can leave last year in last year. Daily receive grace to say no to sin (John 8:10-11, Titus 2:11-12).Then start expecting something new and wonderful to be on the horizon. Start saying of your negative past boldly, “IT’S NOT RELEVANT!” Keep saying it! Don’t stop saying and shame the enemy of your soul.

    PRAYER…

    Lord Jesus, as this year comes to a close, I repent of all sins. Forgive me and reshape my future. I thank you that Jesus took my sins, weakness, frustrations and problems out of the way. I look for a bright new year to come, and I say of my negative past, “IT’S NOT RELEVANT!” in Jesus name, amen

    Mercy For Today (6)

    January 6th, 2017

    mercy-picture

    Psalm 90:17 “And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.”

    What a privilege again to enjoy the mercy, the beauty of God today. Praise God for the gift of another day. Five days in year 2017 are gone forever. I am sure that as you multiply the mercies of God upon your life daily, His beauty will be obvious in your life, family and the work of your hands in Jesus name, amen.

    It is dangerous not to have something in your hand, life that God could bless. God want His beauty radiates your life endeavors. God want to establish the work of your hand with His beauty, mercy. King David prayed to God to bless the works of our hands with His beauty, mercy. It is God’s beauty that will distinguished you for establishment this year and beyond.

    Man must make effort, work with his brain through positive thinking, network with others through godly relationships, study and do some research, plan and take proactive decisions, demonstrate a personality avoid of corruption in work place for promotion and so on. But failure to ask, seek and open the door for God’s beauty/mercy upon his work, will be an effort in futility.

    May the beauty, mercy of God permeate your life and the work of your hand throughout the year in Jesus name, amen.

    More Mercy!

    All Blessings!
