In this season of your life, prioritize your own desires for change over seeking approval from others. Don’t let others hold you back from experiencing personal growth. Stop putting other people’s opinions above your own needs. Change is not something that happens on its own, but rather it needs to be actively initiated by an individual. Do not wait for change, take action in order to avoid being trapped in a situation that leads to downfall. Change does not happen simply by waiting for it to come to you. Don’t wait for defining moments to happen, because they may never come.

Proverbs 23:7

The Bible emphasizes the importance of an individual’s thoughts and mindset, suggesting that as a person thinks in their heart, so they are. This verse highlights the power of one’s thoughts in shaping their actions and character. Your thoughts influence your perception of reality

Your mental state determines your prosperity and success in life, whether it is in a spiritual or physical sense. The role of the mind is a key factor in achieving personal growth and fulfillment and it is important to recognize that the mind is a valuable gift from God meaning what we think and believe will eventually become reality. Our thoughts and mindset play a critical role in shaping our experiences and outcomes, our beliefs are shaped by the realities and thoughts we hold in our minds, ultimately determining our perceived reality and creating belief systems which these belief systems will manifest themselves in physical ways in your life over time. There is common saying that “life has its ups and downs” which reflects the idea that everyone experiences both good and bad times in life. In this case individual create a philosophy based on their life experiences and pass it down to future generations. Being a child of God does not mean one is immune from challenges, but victory is assured when facing these challenges.

Genesis 11:1-6 (KJV) the Bible discusses Nimrod, Cush, and their people planning to build a city. They were already considering the idea and discussing it amongst themselves. The scripture discusses how the Lord came down to see the city and the tower that people were building. However, the Lord did not come down because of the physical structure, but rather while the people were still discussing it. In verse 6, it says God observes that the people are unified in language and capability, suggesting that with this unity, there is no limit to what they can achieve. This shows that God responds to our thoughts. Isaiah 65:24 suggests that God will answer prayers before they are even spoken. The word emphasizes the importance of creating a vision or plan in your mind before physically building something, as doing so will increase the chances of success and retention of the project. Without first visualizing and planning, the risk of losing the physical creation is higher. Be mindful of what you choose to focus on and plant in your minds, as it will manifest in your lives. If you remove mental barriers or limitations, you will be able to experience true freedom and overcome limitations in your life. Many believers struggle with feeling defeated in their minds, even if they do not face physical defeat.

2 Corinthians 10:4 -5 says for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds. The scripture further says casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalt itself against the knowledge of God and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. This shows that every battle is fought within one’s thoughts or mind.

Sometimes in life it may seem like there is currently no positive outcome but implementing change can lead to growth and progress. There is a necessary process to go through before success is achieved. It is important to make changes in life when certain philosophies hinder our growth, meaning when patterns repeat without progress, it is time to reassess and unsubscribe from those beliefs. Changing a philosophy does not mean changing the ultimate goal, but rather changing the approach or method used to achieve that goal. Life is meant to be lived fully and actively, not as a rehearsal. In the Bible, Jesus came to a group of disciples who had been fishing all night without catching anything. Jesus instructed the disciples to cast their nets into the deep water. The scripture discusses how different methods were used to achieve the same goal of catching fish and from the instructions from the Lord, they were able to catch numerous fish

It is important to have big aspirations and being willing to fight for them in life, do not become complacent or so satisfied just because you know something is going to happen. Even when you are aware of something good coming your way, you should still remain proactive and prepared. For example, Zacchaeus, a tax collector in Jericho, became aware that Jesus was visiting the city. Zacchaeus, a man of short stature, ran ahead of the crowd and climbed a sycamore tree to see Jesus better. Jesus noticed Zacchaeus in a tree and told him to come down because he needed to stay at his house that day. This interaction led to Zacchaeus receiving salvation therefor if he did not climb the tree his household would not have received salvation.

Remember if one is a child of God, chosen and anointed by Him, they should live a life that reflects that divine selection and purpose.

Take hold of these mysteries and you will see results.
