But if you make yourselves at home with me and my words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon – John 15:5-8 MSG.
When we invite Jesus into our lives he intercedes, he takes away all of the rotten fruit and branches that might contaminate the new fruits. We have His spirit residing within us, the same spirit that rose him from the dead.
We are made up of 3 parts, the conscious mind, the subconscious mind and the body. The subconscious mind is your spirit, this is a still small voice that suggests things that we quite often miss, ignore or play down because we think we can’t possibly do what it is saying, that’s the conscious mind telling us that we can’t-do it. That’s the way we have been programmed to think.
Our conscious minds are filled with worldly thinking, systematic thinking that programs us in a way that society deems fit. Whatever we believe about our own self-image is what has been programmed into us since birth, a physical birth that is.
The good news is that Jesus came so that we might live a life of peace, joy and abundance!
If our thinking remains limited how can this happen? Spirit is telling us to go for that goal, flesh is the telling us that we can’t-do it, we are worthless and nothing we do beyond our limited thinking will ever come to pass. If we allow this thinking to continue you know what will happen? Nothing. The same nothing we could spend a lifetime grumbling about!
Once we realise that we are in Christ and Christ is in us, that opens up a door to any opportunity you desire!
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength -Philippians 4:13 NLT
“Anything?” I hear you ask.
Yes! ANYTHING, according to the will of Christ.
“But how do I know what the will of Christ for my life is?”
The answer is right here in Philippians 4:8 – Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.
Whatever your dreams, goals or ambitions, they did not get there by coincidence. I encourage you today to start planning, imagine them in motion, take action and you will soon see those fruits developing ready for harvest. 😍
