Have you ever heard this phrase before? "Insanity is doing the same thing but expecting different results." I've heard this before time and time again, but when I decided to focus on restoration this month, this phrase began to mean something deeper to me. Majority of the time we want to do better and do things differently, but one thing we aren't willing to change is our mind. Why is that? If our minds are restored to where God desires for them to be, our behavior is sure to follow.
God wants us to think what His word says about us. Jeremiah 29:11 is a well known verse, but it's important to remember what God truly feels about His children.
"For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11 NKJV
The enemy wants us to believe that all we've been through disqualify us from anything God has for us and this is such a lie. If the enemy can have you THINKING you are anything opposite than what God thinks about you, he's succeeded in his mission. You can't fall victim to these attacks.
God's thoughts are of peace, of a future, and a hope! These are all GOOD things. So we must begin to think what God thinks about us in all areas of our lives. Let him restore your mind to the place it should be, which is depending solely on His word!
So how can this help with business? I'm glad you asked. You know how you've "always done things this way" or how we "don't fix what isn't broken"? Yea, that dies TODAY. What if I told you that the next breakthrough for your business starts with your mind being reset? What if God wants to have a "meeting of the minds" with you to discuss the next moves of your business to change the trajectory of your income and clientele? This is all possible, but it takes for you to be willing to allow him to restore you and your thinking!
Today and ALL this month, we are going to do some work! I'm challenging you to think healthy and positive thoughts! A great way to do this is saying daily affirmations. You can always start with speaking with Word of God over your life! Romans 12:2 and Philippians 2:15 are great because they speak to the mind.
Also, I began taking a class from Prophetess Amanda Ferguson and she instructs her students to state these three affirmations below (I declare these things EVERY morning):
"I am living an abundant life. I am a money magnet. I am creating the answer to someone's problem."
When you start to speak these things continuously, your mindset is bound to shift at some point. My desire for you today is to seek God on mind restoration! I pray that you allow him to clear out the old and let him pour in some new strategies! Let's begin to think and act differently because our minds have been restored!
