Corinthians 2:16 (AMP)
16 For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.
2 Corinthians 10:5 (AMP)
5 [Inasmuch as we] refute arguments and theories and reasonings and every proud and lofty thing that sets itself up against the [true] knowledge of God; and we lead every thought and purpose away captive into the obedience of Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One),
It is truly amazing to see how the wrong words spoken to us when we were children, can dictate our decisions, responses and plans in our adult lives. Harsh, hurting and non productive words spoken from family members have put limits on many of our lives. These limits stop us from even trying to accomplish our full potential and develop the greatness within.
The sad thing is that ninety nine percent of all those words were lies, spoken out of anger, frustration and folly, along with many other vain reasons. What does this all mean? Well, many people are not seeing their lives and abilities based on the abilities that God has put inside them. They are seeing and judging their lives based on the lies they heard when they were children. Those lies developed the wrong imaginations and produced the wrong results. Many have settled for living a life of crime because of words like, "You'll never amount to anything! or You're nothing!" These words have blinded their eyes to only see getting ahead in life through hurting other and doing evil works.
The good news is that because of the Lord Jesus Christ, all those lies and their diminishing, oppressive effects can be completely erased and wiped away from our conscious. That is one of the awesome benefits of meditating on what God says about us. I believe that meditating the Word is the only way to completely rise above the effects of every lie in our lives, because God Word is all Truth. Filling our minds and hearts with it, transforms our lives into Truth.
Many people are trying to find who they are and what they are here on earth for. Mediating the Word fills you with God's plan and purpose for your life. When we meditate the Word, the Holy Spirit will take it and energize our creativity, visions, imaginations, dreams and plans. He lines everything up with what God has planned, purposed and made ready for us, while destroying the lies we have believed about ourselves. As our faith rises in the new vision of who we are, the wonderful grace of God equips us with all kinds of abilities and unmerited favors, that we never thought possible.
There is a special life for you that God has created and made possible. My pray is that as you meditate the Word of God, you will destroy every lie, identify with who you are and excel in all the wisdom, power, grace and ability that God has waiting for you.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
