TRANSFORMATION OF THE MIND 1

Matt 18:3-4

And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

KJV

Life has taught us to be very calculative and very ‘responsible’ in order to make it. We grow into responsible people by taking charge of our lives; we don’t leave anything to chance, we plan, strategize and even worry about every high thing or challenge we face. That is how we are…

Jesus tells us to be converted and become as little children in order to enter His kingdom and be great therein. He tells us this because our calculative minds as ‘adults’ will usually tend to limit the lord God in our lives. Our ‘adult’ minds have been trained to work by sight alone but we need a childlike heart in order to walk by faith and not by sight. You need to trust in the lord and obey Him at all times. This is the only way you can walk with Him.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for this glorious day and your word which you have sent to me. I pray that if there is any way my heart is still not childlike before you, that you change my heart and convert me to the nature that is compatible with your will. I pray this dear God, in Jesus mighty name. Amen

Rom 8:1-3

So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus. 2 And because you belong to him, the power* of the life-giving Spirit has freed you* from the power of sin that leads to death.

NLT

The important question here is ‘do you belong to Christ. Do you have the seal of Christ in you who is the Holy Spirit?’

When you gave your life to Christ Jesus, you were literally transferring the ownership of your life to the lord Jesus Christ. You ultimately became His responsibility. You became a child of God and become free from the bondage of the devil, the world and sin.

When you live with this consciousness, you are living the way you should. You always have a choice whether to walk in the spirit or in the flesh; whether to walk under grace or under the law; whether to live in the new and better covenant or to live in the old ( even though the two are still covenants)

There is always going to be condemnation for those who walk in the flesh; walk under the laws of dos and don’ts. There is no condemnation for those who walk in the spirit; under the grace that teaches us (how)to be God’s children.

Go into today knowing that you belong to Christ and that you can never be condemned but you will judge the angels of darkness that seek to condemn you.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I give you all the praise for your goodness and your love. I ask that you help me walk in a constant awareness of your presence and power in my life, in Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:15-17

So you have not received a spirit that makes you fearful slaves. Instead, you received God's Spirit when he adopted you as his own children.* Now we call him, "Abba, Father."* 16 For his Spirit joins with our spirit to affirm that we are God's children. 17 And since we are his children, we are his heirs. In fact, together with Christ we are heirs of God's glory. But if we are to share his glory, we must also share his suffering.

NLT

the best thing that can happen to any man is for him to become a child of God. When you received the lord Jesus into your life, you were given the license to come into the household of God and become His child. This license is the Holy spirit. When a man who has received the Holy spirit chooses to obey and walk in the spirit, such a man will successfully migrate to sonship in the household of God, but when a man refuses to be led by the spirit and continues in his former sinful nature, even though he is now born again, such a man will not be a son in the household of God.

If you are born again God has put His spirit within you. Your conscience being the voice of your spirit is a safeguard if your spirit has been regenerated. Whatever it is you do that causes friction in your heart, including sins, are the things that hinder you from reaping the full benefits of a child of God. But if you chose to obey the leading of the spirit, and keep your conscience active and sensitive by not walking contrary to its leading, then you will grow in the kingdom of God.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I give you all the praise for your goodness and your love. I ask that you help me walk in a constant awareness of your presence and power in my life, in Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:12-14

Therefore, dear brothers and sisters,* you have no obligation to do what your sinful nature urges you to do. 13 For if you live by its dictates, you will die. But if through the power of the Spirit you put to death the deeds of your sinful nature,* you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of God are children* of God.

NLT

What does God means when he says that anyone who is controlled by the sinful nature will die? God is life and He is the source of all life. Sin is death and that was what the devil introduced to mankind in the Garden of Eden. When a man walks in the flesh; following the dictates of the sinful nature, that man will die spiritually. You must know that this instruction is to those who are already spiritually alive in the Lord Jesus. As you now have this new nature of righteousness in the lord Jesus you are required to walk in it and not in your old nature of sin that you were born with. The more you walk in the new nature, the more the old one fades away.

God’s plan for you is that you walk in His nature which is holiness. This nature is one that yields joy, peace, prosperity, Favor, power, might, wisdom and many more good things.

Go into today with a determination to follow your spiritual nature and abandon your fleshly nature. Walk in the spirit that you may not gratify the lusts of the flesh.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I thank you for your grace and your light you have shown in my heart. I pray that this day I will walk in my new nature as your child. That I will not walk in the flesh for any moment. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen

Rom 8:9-11

9 But you are not controlled by your sinful nature. You are controlled by the Spirit if you have the Spirit of God living in you. (And remember that those who do not have the Spirit of Christ living in them do not belong to him at all.) 10 And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die because of sin, the Spirit gives you life* because you have been made right with God.

NLT

The spirit that lives in a man controls the man. You were born with a spirit that was sinful in nature and that was why you were born a sinner. When you became born again, it was your spirit that was born again into a new man; born of the Holy Spirit thereby producing the nature of the Holy Spirit (the former was born of flesh). The Holy Spirit therefore dwells in your Spirit and He quickens, controls and strengthens your spirit, mind and physical body so that you can do the will of God.

If you have the Holy Spirit living in you, you cannot be controlled by the sinful nature but by the Spirit.

Many Christians that walk in the flesh usually do this because they have left the Holy Spirit’s control. You cannot afford to do this if you want to live the life of peace and joy in the kingdom of God.

Make up your mind that you will go around with a Holy Spirit consciousness (a God consciousness). Let the words of God dwell in you richly that you may express His nature indeed.

Prayer: Dear Lord God, I thank you for this day. I thank you for your love and mercy. I pray that you fill me with the Holy Spirit that I may walk on the earth as your child. Thank you father for hearing me, I Jesus name I pray. Amen

Rom 8:5-7

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. 6 So letting your sinful nature control your mind leads to death. But letting the Spirit control your mind leads to life and peace.

NLT

Now that you are born again, You have two natures. Before you were born again, you had one nature which was the sinful nature; this nature is the reason why nobody needed to teach you how to lie or commit any sin. But you now have the nature of the Holy Spirit who now dwells within your heart.

You now get to choose the nature you will walk in, whether the sinful nature that may look appealing but leads to death or the Spirit’s nature that leads to eternal life in this world and in the world to come.

There are several reasons why many Christians let their sinful nature control them instead of letting the other nature they have to control them. One of these reasons may be that they do not know how to let their other nature which is the nature of the Holy Spirit control them. Some others are deceived into thinking that they have only one nature and this nature is the nature of the spirit, therefore when they see the evidences or even the vestiges of the sinful nature appear, they get condemnation in their hearts plus guilty conscience which interfaces you with the sinful nature.

You need to know first of all that you have a new nature even though the nature of sin you had may seem very easy to switch into because you were born in that nature and you may have probably spent more time exploring it, but as you walk more in the spirit, it will be harder for you to go back there.

We must also point out that walking under the laws of dos and don’ts is a sign of the sinful nature, but walking under grace is a sign of the Spirit’s nature.

Walking under grace means that your relationship with God is not like master and slave but like father and son. ‘For we have not received the spirit of fear but the spirit of children’ (paraphrased Romans 8:15). This means that you do not depend on rules to have a relationship with God but His Spirit who gives you His nature.

Prayer: My father who art in heaven. I thank you for adopting me into your family. I pray that you fill me with your nature that I may have a good relationship with you. Thank you father for hearing me, In Jesus mighty name. Amen

ADVANCING IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

CLICK TO LISTEN TO AUDIO

Matt 11:12

And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.

KJV

The Abrahams found a huge rat in their master bedroom. It really perturbed them because they wondered how it got there in the first place; It must have been when the carpenter came to work and left the back door open’ Helen said. it was quite troubling for them because they couldn’t help but wonder what else might have crawled into the house. They did all they knew to get rid of the rat. They eventually decided to give it rat poison- this killed the rat and they got rid of its carcass.

So many times we have situations that make us remember that there are unwanted visitors that would come uninvited. There are habits that could come because we were not guarding against them. What do we do in such situations? We take strong measures until we see the stranger gone. Many times, Christians take such measures against physical enmity but fail to do so against spiritual enmity.

If there is a new habit in your life that is not in agreement with your new nature as a child of God, do as the Abrahams did. Do not rest until the stranger is gone. This is what being violent is all about, It begins with you; you have to be hard on yourself to grow.

The best way to do away with besetting sins, impulsive habits that are sinful or any such thing is to face it head on. You may need to seek help from your pastor or someone you trust. You may need to pray long and even fast. Whatever it is, do all you can till you see that stranger go away.

The greatest poison I know against such strangers is to soak yourself in the un adulterated word from God.

Go into today with filling your heart with the word of God under and atmosphere of prayer. This is a sure way to poison an unwanted guest in your life.

Prayer: heavenly father, I give you all the praise and glories for all that you have for me. I praise you for giving another chance to partake in your kingdom. I pray you give me the strength to grow in the kingdom. In Jesus name I pray. Amen

Acts 3:16

16 "Through faith in the name of Jesus, this man was healed—and you know how crippled he was before. Faith in Jesus' name has healed him before your very eyes.

NLT

The name of Jesus is not Just a name that He has, the name of Jesus is the seal of authority that His personality commands.

When we talk about the name of the lord we are talking about who He really is. The integrity of a person is reflected in His name.

‘The name of the lord is a strong tower, the righteous runs into it and is safe. The only people that get to utilize the name of the lord are the righteous. The righteous are those who have faith in the name of the lord and who are under the authority of that name.

When you are under the authority of the name of the lord (which is when you are under the authority of the lord), like peter and John, you will be able to utilize the power in that name to perform miracles. Like the psalmist, you will be able to find help in the name of the lord.

Go into today under the authority of God’s glorious name and let the power of God ooze out through you.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for your glorious name that you have given to us as our help and source of power. I pray that from this day I will be more subject to your authority and utilize the power of this name

THE BLESSING OF THE LORD

CLICK TO LISTEN TO AUDIO

Prov 10:22

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich,

And He adds no sorrow with it.

NKJV

The story is told of a man who went to the occult realm to get wealth, he was really rich, but he never had peace because he was given a condition that in order to stay rich, he must sacrifice the life of someone close to him periodically. He was hunted by ghosts in his dreams, he was a troubled man totally void of peace…

There are several spirits other than God that can bless; these spirits are evil spirits and this means they are fundamentally evil, so when such spirits bless people, they unfailingly add sorrow with their blessing.

People who join cults in order to stay on top in their careers, in entertainment or any other endeavor of life are also in this category of those who are blessed with sorrows added. The sorrow added will eventually make the blessing a curse.

The Spirit of the lord is the only Spirit who blesses and adds no sorrow; He is the original blessing giver.

If you are a child of God, you need to know that you are a recipient of the blessing of the Lord. One thing about blessing is that it is a spiritual thing; the evidences are worked out physically when the enabling physical things are done. For example, if you have a specific blessing to be a very successful business man because that is your destiny in God, and then you never venture into any business, you may never know that you have been blessed?

Go into today knowing that God has blessed you with every spiritual blessing in heavenly places. You can plug into any one you want in earthly places.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for blessing me with all blessings. I thank you that I can be whatever you say I can be. I commit my life unto your hands and I pray you keep me and lead me into all truth. That I will walk in all your plan for my life. I pray all this in Jesus’ Holy name. Amen

Luke 15:7

I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

NKJV

Lucy the sheep strayed far away from the ranch in search for food. she looked all over the place and could not find her way back, she was hungry, weak and very miserable. She was lost indeed…

We are sheep in the pasture of our lord, and if one sheep strays away, just like Lucy, our lord knows how horrible it will be for him or her. Our lord is so interested in the repentance of a sinner that all of heaven rejoices with Him when one sinner repents.

Anyone who is not saved is not safe because out there is the roaring lion (the devil) seeking who to devour. There are many people in this world who are not saved, there are some of them where you work, school or live. God wants you to be the one through whom salvation will come to those. I don’t know about you but I really want great joy once more in the whole of heaven  because I led a soul to repentance.

Go into today with a determination to bring joy to the heart of your heavenly father who loves you so much; share the gospel with someone; be a witness and let their interaction with you be like an interaction with Christ.

Prayer: father in heaven, I thank you for making me a sheep in your pasture. I thank you that I will not stray away from your watch. I pray that starting from this day, you use more in bring lost sheep to the fold, in Jesus name, Amen

2 Thess 2:13-14

But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved by the Lord, because God from the beginning chose you for salvation through sanctification by the Spirit and belief in the truth, 1

NKJV

Your salvation is because of the Holy Spirit who has sanctified you by setting you apart for God’s purpose.

God chose you not because of your good works but because of His love for you. While you were still a sinner, Christ died for you. Now I know how this sounds since you were not even yet born when Christ died, but you need to know that you already existed in the mind of God when Christ died and you, even you were one of whom he died for.

He who believes in this gospel receives adoption into the eternal family of God’s kingdom.

Go into today renewed in your hope because you know God has before ordained you to walk in His good pleasure.

Prov 4:18

18 But the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.

KJV

The sun begins to rise around 5 to 6am and from then becomes brighter and brighter until the perfect day (around 12 noon) before it begins to become dimmer and dimmer as it sets around six pm to 7pm.

The lord orchestrates the path of a just man to keep shinning brighter and brighter like the light that shines till the perfect day. Unlike the sun, this one ends at the perfect day and doesn’t begin to dim. There is a question brewing in my heart right now.

Who is the Just?

Jesus talks about the resurrection of the just (Luke 14:14) and we learn from the bible that the just shall live by his faith, the word for faith in the original Hebrew language is faithfulness. There is no separate word for faith in Hebrew. This could also mean that you get to be just by faith in the lord Jesus Christ and continue to be just by being faithful to Him. Just like all those who God declared to be just in the bible even though they probably didn’t know they were just or perfect, you through your faith and faithfulness to the lord will be considered as being just by heaven; your life will only get better as a result. You will never have a better tomorrow because as you grow older your glory will increase.

Go into today knowing that God has tagged you Just. Live in the light of this and see a glorious future.

Prayer: Heavenly father. I thank you for being so good. I pray lord this day that you make me truly and wholly just. That I will live by faith and not by works. That I will never limit you in my life, In Jesus name I pray. Amen

CLEANSING FROM SIN

1 John 1:7-8

But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

KJV

When a man walks around without adequate light, he is likely to stumble on things and probably fall. If he falls, he falls as a result of darkness which is an absence of light.

Sin is a result of spiritual darkness; an absence of God’s authority because God is the light.

Because the world is covered with darkness, our walk in this world will cause us to come in contact with the consequence of darkness: sin. By this I am not referring to Christians doing iniquity which is a willful disobedience against the law of life: God’s law, I am saying that there are times one could come in contact with sin without even knowing it, because sin is like an ink that stains. When a Christian commits iniquity, it is like someone intentionally staining himself, but this is not what I am talking about when I say one cannot walk without the stain of sin in this world.

The blood of Jesus continually cleanses and makes us perfect if we walk in the light. It is just like wearing a garment that automatically expels dirt when it comes in contact with it. That garment can never be dirty.

The key to living a sinless life is walking in the Spirit; walking with a God consciousness who is the light.

Go into today determined to walk in love and fellowship with brethren. Let the light so shine that men will glory God on account of you.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly father. I thank you for your love and you word you have given me today. I pray that you help me to constantly walk in the light and never again in darkness. I pray this in Jesus name. Amen

1 John 1:5-7

This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.

6 If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:

7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

KJV

The definition of darkness is an absence of light. Take away the light and what you have is darkness.

If you are a Christian who is abiding in the will of God, He gives you His precious Holy Spirit to dwell in you. The Spirit of God who dwells in your spirit dwells also in your body because your spirit dwells in your body.

When you walk in the spirit as a child of God, this means you are living under the authority of God; you go about with a God consciousness and give your spirit more priority over your flesh. This also means you are walking in the light.

God is love, you cannot walk in the Spirit and not love; this becomes the nature of your spirit when it is regenerated and Housing the Spirit of God. Like a glove expresses the hand inside it, your Spirit begins to express the nature of God, your mind and body should follow suite. This is what happens when you chose to walk in the spirit. But if you refuse to do this, you are walking in the flesh: walking in darkness because anything void of the light(God) is darkness.

When you walk in the spirit, you are the one who the blood of Jesus cleanses constantly because the fact that you walk on the earth will require this constant cleansing.

Go into today walking in the nature of the spirit that you now have; walk in love.

Prayer: My father in heaven. I thank you for today and your word that you have sent to my heart. I pray that you fill me with all goodness and righteousness and truth( the fruit of the spirit- see: Eph 5:7) I pray this in Jesus name. Amen

In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood a it.

I was looking at a solar powered device yesterday; it was a calculator that wouldn’t work without solar power; this calculator now had a bad battery and would not work unless it had sufficient power from the solar panel.

The life (as it were) of that calculator was the light of the sun, without that light no one will be able to use the calculator even if it was working.

Jesus is our source of life and He is also the light of the world. His light shines in this dark world and the world cannot understand it.

The world was groping in darkness but Jesus came and showed us the way. Now we who have accepted Him have the light of life. We are the light of the world.

Go into today knowing that you are like Christ to the world. You have life and you have light; that is why you can heal the sick and cast out demons of darkness (light expels darkness). That is why you can walk in perpetual victory in this world.

BEARING FRUIT

Matt 12:33

"Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit.

NIV

Jesus clearly pointed out to us that the fruit we produce are a function of who we are not the other way round; religion only cares about the fruit and not who you are. It is important for us to remember that it is out of the abundance of the heart that the fruit is produced.

Jesus has begun to make us good by giving us the Holy Spirit who renews our minds and changes us into the nature of God; the good nature. The more yielded you are to the Holy spirit and His word, the better you are in the inside and the more you can bear the fruit of the spirit.

God wants us to be transformed by the renewing of our minds. He wants us to be renewed by His word and His Holy Spirit within us. This is His plan to make us good because were not born to be good; we were born will a sinful/bad nature.

You do not need to struggle to bear the fruit of the spirit; you just see the fruit comes naturally because it is now your nature.

When you have been renewed from the inside, you will naturally bear the fruit of the spirit. The major way to be renewed is to constantly submit and yield to the Holy Spirit and letting the word of God dwell in you richly.

Go into today with a consciousness of the Holy Ghost and the word of God running in your inner man.

Prayer: dear heavenly father. I thank you for making me your own and filling me with your Holy Spirit. I pray that you give me the grace to yield to your spirit and live in the light of your word at all times. I pray this in Jesus mighty name. Amen

LIFE IN THE SPIRIT



   
    


Eph 5:15-20
15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, 16 making the most of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. 18 And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery; but be filled with the Spirit, 19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord with all your heart, 20 always and for everything giving thanks in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ to God the Father.
RSV
God has chosen you and given His divine nature to the end that you express Him on the earth.
Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your father in heaven.
There is a clear instruction here that we Christians should not be drunk with wine but be filled with the Holy Spirit. It appears to me that this two contradict; being drunk with win or being filled with the Holy Spirit. People of the world pass time by getting filled with wine to relax and be refreshed, people of God’s kingdom pass time by getting filled with the Holy Spirit to be refreshed. Being filled with the Holy Spirit for you should be as accessible as being filled with wine for the unbeliever.
There is a sweetness and joy that is generated from being filled with the Holy Spirit. It is a peace and joy that cannot be explained. It usually bursts out with songs of thanksgiving, hymns and deep gratitude to the father in the name of Jesus Christ.
Go into today with a determination to be filled with the Holy Spirit. Let the presence of God envelop your world and see a turn around and grace that is unexplainable.
PREYER: Heavenly father, I thank you for your word today. I thank you for your precious Holy Spirit that you have sent to fill my heart. I pray that today, I will be filled afresh with the Holy Spirit, In Jesus mighty name I pray. Amen

Out of the brightness of his presence clouds advanced,

Let us not forget today that the lord our God is a mighty and awesome God. Even though He is Spirit, He manifests Himself in more physical ways than you can possibly imagine.
When you look up this morning and see the sky, I want you remember that God put them there. The clouds are up there only because of the existence of God; your father in heaven. I want you to also be reminded that it means He sees you and He is very present in your situation. He may be Spirit but the very existence of the clouds and lightening is a direct proof of His existence and strong presence on the earth.
When you look up into the heavens, I want to you be inspired into knowing that the lord is physically present. Talk with the authority of knowing He is ever present; declare His will and only His will concerning your life. Cancel every pronunciation and evil counsel or course concerning your life in His name; declare His blessings into every aspect of your life. Do this with a renewed and strong awareness of His presence and power over all the earth.
Go into today with a renewed assurance that you are never alone. You do not only have the Spirit of God within you, you also have the strong physical/spiritual presence of God in and above the whole earth. God is everywhere and He cares for you.
