Be Christ minded
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.”
“For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.”
One of my goals is to be Christ-minded in every area of life because I have realized that though I already have the mind of Christ I have to consciously put my mind to use 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 of whom 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 pattern 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 human outlook to 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.
The Bible says you are God’s dwelling place so see and carry yourself that way. The Bible says you have the mind of Christ then call your mind in line with divine intelligence. Start getting ready to catch waves of witty inventions and make unusual discoveries. If God says that Christ the anointed one is in you therefore no devil of oppression can reside inside you, and all forms of satanic operation cease immediately.
You need to begin to effect and exert your new identity by giving your inner man more and better recognition or else your supernatural potential would lie dormant and unproductive. For example I don’t feel inferior to anybody because of my awareness of my status in Christ and the fact that I have all of heaven’s resources inside me. So when any unfavorable situation shows up I stir up the Spirit of God inside me by praying in tongues and ideas would begin to generate and off I go again marching in triumph over the enemy. You can also do the same.
Many have taken the life of God in them for granted thinking that Christ in them is just for the fun of it and only a ticket to heaven and nothing more. Yes it’s a ticket to heaven but it is more than that it is also the ticket to living the life of heaven on earth and enjoying God’s best.
I implore you to consciously work on becoming Christ-minded inside and you will enter into your large place on this earth.
