Breaking false and poisonous mindsets through faith (278)
In an age where we get instant information, very few find instant answers.
The modern world with all its ease, it still doesn’t have the ability to calm the soul.
We get to work faster, achieve a lot more, run from one meeting to another and still feel we’ve accomplished nothing.
We are all created in the image of God, yet through false and poisonous mindsets we rob ourselves of all God intended for us.
What is a MINDSET?
Simplest meaning : Your mindset is a set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation.
An even simpler meaning is our mind begins to form beliefs likened to concrete being poured into moulds. Once the concrete is set, it becomes irreversible. It no longer is pliable or fashioned into a greater belief.
Faith changes everything!
It was Paul the Apostle who described faith that changes everything. He said “Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”
The word substance can also be interpreted as assurance.
Faith is like a title deed to a property transaction. It’s proof of ownership.
Faith activates what is ours if we claim it as it’s rightful owner. Faith produces hope, confidence, a miraculous change of mind.
Old mindsets are literally removed and new beliefs are set in their place.
Faith in what?
Faith in God’s promises, starting with salvation through Jesus Christ. Building our lives on a solid foundation first.
Just having faith alone with no foundations creates a roller coaster life that has extreme highs and lows yet without meaning.
Jesus said “I am the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the father except though me”
One of the greatest mistakes I’ve done in my forty plus years of faith was to compromise where I place my faith.
People let us down
Governments let us down
Our own intuition let us down
Repositioning where we place our faith restores our ability to build lifelong relationships without bitterness and suspicion. It also helps us with uncertainties of government and social disruption. More importantly it hones our intuition through the eyes of a gracious, loving and merciful God.
If you have never considered placing your faith in Jesus but you are sick and tired of false and poisonous mindsets that are holding you back, just pray and ask God to show you the way.
As for me, my faith is not for sale. I’ve been to the dark side and back and I put my trust in Jesus.
I pray 🙏 you have an awesome day and take hold of God’s assurance.
