Laying a foundation of Blessings for 2007
First of all, a very Happy and prosperous new year to all of my readers. I pray sincerely that this is the year that not only will you find your purpose, but that you will live it to the max so that you get results in every area of your life.
Did you think about the question I left you in the orignial post? You can read this post at http://www.womenofinfluence.com/blog/index.php/straight-talk-on-blessings-and-curses if you have no idea what I’m speaking about.
So, do you need to revoke that generational curse,
or do you need to change your mindset?
I’ll answer the question for you… you can revoke generational curses all day long but if you don’t change the way you think, you’ll not change your actions and the course of your life, because you’ll continue to make poor decisions which have lead you to where you are today.
Romans 8:2 specifies the laws that govern our lives… If we walk after the Spirit, we have a life in Christ Jesus and all the benefits that go with it… healing, divine health, prosperity, love, peace and happiness. Conversely, if we walk according to the law of sin and death, our decisions will lead us to a life of fear, poverty, sickness and ultimately death and as Creflo Dollar puts it so well, YOU turn on either of these laws and therefore, YOU have the ability to jump ship!
And Romans 8:5 even gives you instructions on how you have turned on the law you’re currently walking in and therefore, how to jump ship if you’re steering in the wrong direction,
"For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit." Amplified Version
What are you setting your mind on today?
Is it the Word of God which is going to give you the foundation you need to walk according to the Spirit, or is it your circumstances or even your past. As I’ve heard so many times, what you focus on expands. So by keeping your eyes on your circumstances, the problems are only going to get bigger, and if you try to avoid making the same mistakes you did in your past, if this is your focus, you could end up weaving your own web of destruction.
So, the secret is to walk into your future in Christ Jesus and by doing so, it’s inevitable that you will reap the benefits that go with good living such as peace, joy, prosperity, health etc. How am I so sure? It’s written in the Bible and the Word does not and cannot lie!
Trust in His Word and you’ll be able to walk according to the Spirit and enjoy all the benefits this brings.
Blessings until next time,
