Day 11 A Timely Mindset

A Timely Mindset


We have all heard the expression “why put off tomorrow what can be done today”. The Bible says in proverbs 6:4 “Don’t put it off; do it now! Don’t rest until you do. “ Do you realize you’ve had a lot of yesterdays in your lifetime. There seems to be a big misconception about time. We somehow whimsically say “I will do it tomorrow”. Have you began to notice that tomorrow gets here faster than we expect. So our dreams, healing, businesses, ministries etc... sleep and wait for another tomorrow. The truth is what you sow today is what you reap tomorrow. So it’s already a promise that if you didn’t make a move today you will not see any results tomorrow. This week we have been discussing the mindset of a warrior. Joshua in the battle of Jericho was not just obedient but timely. The smallest details have the most impact in battle and in life. Your future successes are wrapped in your daily routines (Dr. Micheal Murdock). Joshua 6:10 Joshua had commanded the army, “Do not give a war cry, do not raise your voices, do not say a word until the day I tell you to shout. Then shout”. Can I tell you the planning that led to their tomorrow victory under our Lord was planned in their yesterday. If the Lord gave you the vision and the seed today, start the work today! Keep in mind tomorrow will also turn into yesterday. Be timely!!

Day 2 all About the Mind challenge

THE MINDSET OF AN HEIR PART 2: DO YOU KNOW THE SIZE OF YOUR INHERITANCE? Mindset recovery and Discovery  One of the things that amaze me is our fear to ask big things of our big God. Truthfully speaking I have been guilty of this many times. Whether it's due to a lack of trust, guilt, or understanding we fail to see that God will meet us where we are. If we are minimalist in our prayers and asking we will get less than minimal answers and solutions. The prodigal son may have been guilty of a lot of things but he knew to ask his father for his portion. He knew the size of his portion and that he had a right to it. Although he used it poorly and selfishly he knew well enough to know what he was inheriting (Luke 15:11-32) . Let me ask you, are you asking according to the size of your God or the size of your vision? We think small but God plans big!!!! While you are asking for another apartment to rent or lease God is planning for your dream home. While you are asking for a small busi…

Day 10 The Resourceful Mindset

The Resourceful Mindset
             We have been focusing on the mindset of a warrior for the past two days. Looking at the life of Gideon and David. Surely, we can dig a little deeper into the the lives of both men to pull out some attributes we all could use to become a warrior. However, I would like to introduce another warrior, Esther. She is not a likely choice but she is a great example of a key concept needed in a warrior, resourcefulness. Hence, the resourceful mindset needed by every warrior. The word resourceful is defined as having the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties. It is the ability to promptly find solutions and deal with difficulties. After that definition you should absolutely see how Esther can be identified as having this mindset. Sure, the Bible describes her as being a beautiful woman but she was resourceful. This woman did not panic at the threat of her nation being wiped out. Being resourceful is bringing value to the table and ut…

Day 3 Destroying the Ambivalent Mind

The Ambivalent Mind Destroyed!                                                                 The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines ambivalence as simultaneous and contradictory attitudes or feelings toward an object, person, or action. Other connotations for that word are also fluctuation and uncertainty. In my profession ambivalence is often a sign of internal conflict. It is a battle that occurs in the mind that can affect all areas of an individual's life. It really boils down to not being able to make decisions. For most of us we are able to make informed decisions every day. At times we even make decisions on impulse, but we exercise the ability to make decisions. Even as a professional you can easily fall into being trapped by the quandary of an ambivalent person. I like to examine what the bible has to say about ambivalence. James 1:8 states, " He is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does". The word looks at it very clear cut. It's either this or tha…
