The Weapon of THE MIND!
The other day I was reflecting over the past few years of my life. While thinking about the ups, downs, joys, and pains, beloved, you must know that life is like a series of tests. You learn the lessons, you move on, you refuse to learn the lessons you will keep “going around the same mountain.” One of the greatest lessons that I have learned is the fact that battles are fought twice and also everything you possess and experience was created twice. Here is the encouragement from God to you for this day: before you can successfully deal with any challenges and/or battles of life, you must first conquer them in your mind. Your mind is one of the most powerful weapons that God has given to you to be more than a conqueror. I stand on the conviction that what we need in life is not a revival of our spirits nor a transformation of our bodies; but what we need is a renewal of our minds. Great women of God, YOU ARE not only WHO GOD SAYS YOU ARE, but WHO YOU SAY YOU ARE! Stop listening to television, commercials, public opinions, people, and I would dare to say, some of you need to stop listening to your “so-called” friends. You are wonderfully and fearfully made, created by the HANDS OF GOD! Did you know that when God decided to create woman (you), he put man to sleep! Did you get it? God did not need the opinion of man to create you! You may deal with those challenges and battles in life and you feel like you are about to lose your mind; let me share with you the blessing in losing your mind. God wants his thoughts of you, his plan for you in your mind, but God cannot put it in your mind because your mind is so full of “trash”. Beloved, the Word says to you today; “Whoever knows what you’re thinking and planning except you, yourself? The same with God-except that he not only know what he’s thinking, but he lets us (you) in on it. God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving us (to you). We (You) don’t have to rely on the world’s guesses and opinions…” (1 Corinthians 2:10-13 The Message)
