Romans 8:11,15-17 –But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you
For you did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption by whom we cry out, “Abba, Father.”The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs–heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
One of my goals is to be Christ-minded in every area of life because I have realised that though I already have the mind of Christ I have to consciously put my mind to use it in a Christ-like manner. To put your mind to use in a Christ-like manner you have to consistently format your mindset to God’s word.
I spend a lot of time meditating and thinking who Christ has made me and my new status and nature, because I know that what I look at longest becomes strongest in my heart. Everyone has a mind and everyone is using it in one way or another. So the question is what are you using your mind to do? The Bible says, as a man thinks so is he. How are your thoughts and thinking patterns formatted? Towards your identity in Christ or towards your natural identity?
While it is alright to know your natural identity it is not wise to rely on that identity to bring you into God’s best. To live large and anointed on earth you need to be Christ-minded. This means to mind things like Christ; to see things through anointed eyes not through natural eyes. It’s time for us to switch from a human outlook to a divine outlook, from natural to supernatural, physical to spiritual. Remember, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God. You need to be more in tune spiritually to be able to catch heaven’s waves and frequency.
I implore you to consciously work on becoming Christ-minded inside and you will enter into your large place on this earth.
