Hello Dear One,
Welcome to the start of an amazing working week! It’ll be a week of good reports for you in Jesus name.
As we begin the new working week, what do you imagine to experience? There’s favour, blessings, protection, good reports, grace… on the one hand and there’s oppositions, missed opportunities and near successes… on the other hand. While no one would expressly state that they want the negatives, many have their thoughts aligned in that direction.
Do you remember those building the tower of Babel in Genesis 11.They had purposed in their hearts to build a temple very high up. When God saw that their imagination was propelling them and that nothing was going to stop them, He had to set confusion in their midst. Genesis 11:4 (NLT) states, “Look! he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! “
Sometimes we are all pumped and ready to face our challenges, until we accept a narrative that does not align with the word of God. For instance, you were gunning for a promotion at your work place and all of a sudden, someone tells you no one has achieved that feat under one year. Once you accept that narrative (whether consciously or unconsciously), it begins to inform your actions and thoughts. Consequently, you slow down and accept to go with the flow.
Philippians 4:8 provides a guideline for our thought pattern as believers. The Passion Translation states, ” So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God,praising him always.“
The second half of the year is still budding, there are lots of great feats that can happen for you and through you. It’s time to let go of all the negative narratives that have clouded your thoughts and replace these with what God says. Keep speaking it, keep imagining it and it’ll come to pass in Jesus name.
God’s blessings always,
