Today I want to encourage you with a mystery that changes results. You know, from my experience, I have come to realize that in this Kingdom we don’t just receive with our hands, we first receive with our minds and heart. It is according to our level of expectations. Your life will always be a reflection of your mindset and belief system. This is the reason in alot of cases Jesus said, ” Let it be according to your faith.”
Your mind doesn’t need any formal clearance, stamp, gate pass, visa or passport to go anywhere. You can desire something, wish to get to somewhere or want to get from here to there in your life and your mind will lead you to attain it. When God told Abraham, ‘…as far as you can see I give you…’, the scope of possession and the territory he could get and occupy depended on him(Abraham not God). As far as you can see. Seeing with your inner eyes, your mind.
Back in our village Murunyu in Nakuru County, there was this lady who was always very dirty and shabby that even when we were in Kamurunyu primary school teachers would say wewe ni mchafu kama lady X(name withheld). Despite of her appearance and up bringing (the parents cooked Busaa and Chan’gaa) she had high esteem and alot of times she would try to walk like a model. Honestly she looked like a scare craw or Kigogoo when cat walking. Her mindset was prepared to be a model. As we talk today she is married to a white man, lives abroad and is a model. What happened? Setting her mindset right. What people said, saw, perceived, her Busaa family background and Shags didn’t change her desire to be a model.
You see, you can never rise above the level of your mindset.
Challenge your limiting beliefs!
There’s power in a transformed mind.
The bible in Romans 12:2 tells us not to conform into the cultures, patterns, systems and how we think things happen but to be Transformed (converted, renewed, remade, changed, reshaped or undergo metamorphosis) by the changing of our minds and setting it right.
In 2kings 7:3-10 the 4 reapers made up their mind to get into the city if it’s dying they die.
In Mark5:25-34 the woman with the issue of blood purposed to touch the hem of Jesus garment.
In Numbers 13:1-33 Joshua and Caleb courageously purposed to go posses the land.
In Athletics we learn from Faith Kibyegon, Michael Olunga, Eliud Kipchoge and Ferdinand Omanyala who go against all odds believing they’ll win and for sure they do wonders. It’s all about our mindset.
I usually share my story of how after periodically becoming last in class then dropped out of school while in form two in 1999, was out of school for four years and when I made up my mind to go back to school in 2004, I didn’t look at the stubborn limitations of my performance or where to get the school fees. I decided that I would join Anestar School in Nakuru, went bought uniforms even without confirming admission and when I reported I wasn’t interviewed(not common to join a new school without interview moreso like my case) and with only the Ksh 2000 school fees that I reported with I was admitted to join form two and three years later in 2006 I completed my Secondary School education with an A(-) grade with no school fees arrears. I just purposed to go back to school, period! All other matters didn’t hold me back. It’s all by setting our mindset right.
Remember, I said your mind doesn’t need a gate pass, visa or passport. Just set it towards a certain direction and it’ll take you there breaking all the barriers.
1. Have a big vision and pursue it. Look at how politicians pursue their dreams of becoming governors, presidents etc. All odds are against them but they keep on fighting because of their vision. They aren’t allowing adversities, challenges, setbacks and stubborn limitations pull them down.
2. Surround yourself with great achievers. If you spend most of your time with a gym instructor you’ll also find yourself gaining some few body fitness tips. We learn naturally from the experts around us through Apprenticeship. Choose your companions wisely.
3. Be ready to pay the price. Maisha ni kujituma na kulipa gharama.
4. Recognize and appreciate the progress. Those small steps matters and you must be keen to notice and celebrate them.
5. Be God-dependent. In the beginning, God. Along the way, God. Let Him be The Lord of all that happens. Honor, Obey, Fear and Trust Him all through because He is the Alpha and Omega, the begining and the end and sees the end from the beginning..
Ever watched a football striker like Ronaldo, Messi, Farah etc when taking up a penalty? They step back, strategize, come very fast and kick the ball. I call it Nduki or Mkiki. Maisha ni kujituma nduki nduki. Life ni kujituma Mkiki Mkiki.
Have the tenacity of a bull dog.
In boxing when trying to win your opponent you aim to give him that one knock that will blow him out. We call it a Technical Knock Out(TKO). Give your limitations a Technical Knock Out.
God told Jeremiah in chapter 1:10 See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and throw down, to build and to plant.
Also in Genesis after God created man He commanded him to go rule, multiply, be fruitful, subdue and have dominion.
In Timothy the bible says that we have not been given the spirit of fear but POWER.
In Ephesians 3:20 To Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above and beyond what we can ever imagine or ask for, according to the POWER that is WITHIN US.
We have power in US that we need to discharge and unleash. We can do wonders.
The bible in Daniel says that …but the people who KNOWS their God shall be MIGHTY and DO WONDERS.
My friend, know your worth! Know your value! Know what you are before God! He called Jacob …you worm I’ll make you a threshing stone to crush kingdoms. He called Gideon mighty man of valor (mighty warrior).
There is great potential in you through Christ Jesus. Set your mindset right!
You see how those big superhighways are done? They start with a map and plan then starts doing demolitions and excavation. Can you have the bigger picture of your life, where you desires to be. Get a map, plan, strategy and implement. See the bigger picture of your life. Impacting lives and living your purpose. Now start the demolitions and excavations working on that project(you, your future, your destiny).
Have a great desire, imagine attaining it, Perceive yourself being there, be Thirsty and Hungry to achieve and succeed, Aspire to Inspire and take ACTION.
Whatever you desire you possess. Wherever there is a desire there’s provision.
In all the things that comes your way, you are more than a conqueror, not that you are going to be but you are more than already so act like it and use the power given in you, you have the victory, confess His word not to get victory but because you already have the victory, stop being conscious of your weakness because you are a victor. The bible doesn’t say that by His stripes we are going to be healed but we are healed. Romans8:37. You are more than a conqueror today in JESUS Holy name!
Life is a battle!
Stand up and fight for your life, your destiny, your future.
Choices makes or breaks us and you have to make choices that will give you conducive consequences.
Right knowledge + Right Action = Desirable Outcome.
Purpose to come out of the status quo, change your life, change your destiny.
This is a private affair!
Draw a line on the ground and declare, ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!’
Philippians 4:13 You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you!
Isaiah 60:1,2 Arise and shine for your light has come!
Handle your next frontier with the weight that it deserves. Take charge of the next chapter, phase, level, model and version of your life. Time to change is NOW! The person to change is YOU? And the how is to change your MINDSET!
AS FAR AS YOU CAN SEE, and, ACCORDING TO YOUR FAITH.
Hey, declare with me, ‘MY LIFE, WILL NEVER, EVER, BE THE SAME AGAIN IN JESUS NAME. And so shall it be!
