Antidotes for anger


Antidotes for anger

Renew your mind – ever since the fell of the fallen angel (the devil or wicked one) every imagination of men have been towards evil continuously (Gen.6:5). This is why you must reprogram yourself by thinking positively. You’re what you think and anger has a strong connection with your thought. Your mind is the devil’s primary object of attack.

Listen to this: before you can be liberated from the world of hatred, emptiness, bitterness, malice and anger; let there first be a casting down of all mind debris. Your mind can either make you or break you.

If God who is the creator of the universe and all which are in it – including you off course – thinks and thinks positively, then you and I have no choice than to follow the same principle.

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

Do all things without murmurings and disputings (Phil.2:14) – wouldn’t it make a news if I’m caught in a brawl? While murmurings will mess up your situation, complains will complicate your matters. It’s uncommon this day to hear that “situations in the country are bad” “we are feeling the heat.” The truth is that there is nobody who is not feeling the heat but the way we manage ourselves is different from each other. Those who grumbled this way are programmed for destruction.

1 Corinthians 10:10 KJV
Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.

The Antidotes of Praises and Thanksgiving – We thank God for what He has done, we praise Him for what He will do and we worship Him for who He is. Those who struggle more and had little or no result are in the company of those who have not added praise to their efforts. If you’re not joyful you will be fretful. It leaves you with no option as praise is a commandment (Psalm.150:6). Until you maintain a constant praise lifestyle, the spirit of destructive anger remains your neighbour. Only if you can turn all your bitterness into praises and thanksgiving your life will be experiencing all kinds of additions and multiplications on every side (Jer.30:19).

THINK BIG by Dr. Ben Carson


Think big by Dr.Ben Carson

This post is made available on this blog page as a reference as to what THINK BIG by Dr. Ben Carson actually meant. Since when i mentioned THINK BIG in one of my posts, people have been wondering about its full meaning this was why I decided to make the full meaning and explanation available on my blog page as a point of reference. Enjoy reading…

T = TALENT

Learn to recognize and accept your God-given talents (and we all have them). Develop those talents and use them in the career of your choice. Remembering T for talent puts you far ahead of the game if you take advantage of what God gives you.

T also = TIME

Learn the importance of time. When you are always on time, people can depend on you. You prove your trustworthiness. Learn not to waste time, because time is money and time is effort. Time usage is also a talent – God gives some people the ability to manage time. The rest of us learn how. And we can!

H=HOPE

Don’t go around with a long face, expecting something bad to happen. Anticipate good things; watch for them.

H also = HONESTY

When you do anything dishonest, you must do something else dishonest to cover up, and your life becomes hopelessly complex. The same with telling lies. If you’re honest, you don’t have to remember what you said the last time. Speaking the truth each time makes life amazingly simple.

I=INSIGHT

Listen and learn from people who have already be where you want to go. Benefit from their mistakes instead of repeating them. Read good books like the Bible because they open up new worlds of understanding.

N=NICE

Be nice to people – all people. If you’re nice to people, they’ ll be nice to you, it takes much less energy to be nice than it does to be mean. Being kind, friendly, and helpful takes less energy and relieves much of the pressure.

K=KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is the key to independent living, the key to all of your dreams, hopes and aspirations. If you are knowledgeable, particularly more knowledgeable than anybody else in a field, you become invaluable and write your own ticket.

B=BOOK

I emphasize that active learning from reading is better than passive learning such as listening to lectures or watching television. When you read, your mind must work by taking in letters and connecting them to form words. Words make themselves into thoughts and concepts. Developing good reading habit is something like being a Champion weight lifter. The champion didn’t go into the gym one day and start lifting 500 pounds. He toned his muscles, beginning with lighter weights, always building up, preparing for more. It’s the same thing with intellectual feats. We develop our minds by reading, by thinking by figuring out things ourselves.

I= IN-DEPTH LEARNING

Superficial learners cram for exams but know nothing two weeks later. In depth learners find that the acquired knowledge becomes a part of them. They understand more about themselves and their world. They keep building on prior understanding by piling on new information.

G=GOD

Never get too big for God. Never drop God out of your life

Imaginative faculty – mind by Godson


Imagination

Imagination refers to the action or process of forming new ideas, concepts, images of external objects without any immediate input of the senses.

Imagination which is one function of the mind shouldn’t be confused with thinking.
Imagination is a more structured, intentional and creative form of thought which are more likely to solve a problem or serve an intended purpose.

Your mind is that part of you that enables you to imagine through your thinking. Understand that it is within your capacity by the God Grace made sufficient in you to think constructively, creatively for a divine purpose.

Philippians 4:8 says
“Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things”.

But beware of the kind of thoughts you imagine. Think good things and your life will be good. Think bad things and you will continuously live in misery until you learn to consciously direct your thoughts. That is why you should be careful with what you imagine in your life everyday.

Proverbs 4:23 says “Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life”.

Your ability to imagine is your ability to choose how you want the spiritual to direct your physical life that is why God has given you dominion over all things. Understand that it is within your jurisdiction to cast evil and bring excess good which truly it starts from your thoughts.

Your imagination is a conscious link between your physical and all that is in the spiritual. It is the tool you use to tap from all that is infinite and limitless whether good or bad, its your choice. That is why the bible says we should guild our heart with all vigilance.

Let us learn to acknowledge the abundance, good health and riches that God had made in store for us through our thoughts and prayers. Something is made available to you only when you acknowledge, accept or have a conviction that it is there already (or that it is already yours) and that is why faith is very important.

Mark 11:23-24 says “Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours”.

FAITH IS THE SUBSTANCE OF THINGS HOPED FOR, EVIDENCE OF THINGS NOT SEEN.

I want you to pause, take a moment and look around you and take time to realize that all you see around you was first conceived through a person’s thought – the books, chairs, phones, houses etcetera. Those things were constructively thought into being for the enhancement of human life and for solving problems. But remember, imagining only will not bring things into manifestation. You have to pray for God’s direction, plan and execute according to his will for your life.

Jeremiah 17:10 says “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds”.

It’s my prayer this evening that God will give us the strength to diligently seek him so that as we live in accordance to his words and directives, our mind shall continually be renewed so that we shall grow in understanding and think more intelligently and creatively for the propagation of the gospel and the manifestation of all the good he had made in store for his children. Amen.

Continues…

(4). You are what you think

Proverbs 23:7 KJV
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.

Listen to this: you can’t think of failure today and wake up tomorrow to see success.

You can’t think of poverty and wake up tomorrow with a life full of abundance and prosperity.

Everybody gets what they think.

This is divine setting: God can’t break this principle because of you

(5). God answers thought just like He answers prayer.

Ephesians 3:20 KJV
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

For instance, the woman with the issue of blood in the bible didn’t had to pray before she took her healing. God answered her thought (thought preceded action).

Matthew 9:21-22 KJV
For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole. [22] But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.

Great minds discuss ideas

(6). A future that you can’t picture don’t expect to be featured in it

Whatever that you can see from Genesis to Revelation through the instrumentality of faith can be yours.

Genesis 13:14-16 KJV
And the Lord said unto Abram, after that Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes, and look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward: [15] For all the land which thou seest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed for ever. [16] And I will make thy seed as the dust of the earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.

God did not expect Abraham to see all his seed; He must be talking about another kind of eye. “The Imaginative faculty.”

Super human project like the pyramid of Egypt, Hanging garden of Babylon and the light house of Pharaoh were accomplished through the power of Imaginative faculty.

I wish you could understand how powerful your Imaginative faculty is

You need to renew your mind. Let there be a casting down of all mind debris, traditions and cultural orientations.

God has the final says

Whatever the scripture says concerning that issue is the final

Man’s view is a man’s view

Job 22:29 KJV
When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, There is lifting up; and he shall save the humble person.

I will stop at this junction.

Imaginative faculty – mind


Your mind can either make you or break you

Mind is the element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experience, to think and feel the faculty of consciousness and thought.

Mind is someone ability to think and reason: the intellect. Synonyms: Power of thought, mentality, perception, brain power and reasoning

 Why must someone renew his/her mind?

(1). The mind is the battle ground. This is where all the battles of life are fought and won. The devil’s object of attack is the mind so also the word of God can only gained entrance into you via the mind. That is why the scripture says,

Proverbs 4:23 KJV
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

(2). Ever since the fell of Lucifer, men thinking pattern have been evil continuously.

Genesis 6:5 KJV
And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.

This is why you must deprogram yourself from this negative pattern into the positive pattern. Watch out for what you allow to stay on your mind.

In the realm of the spirit, any thought that you allows to hold grip on you is regarded accomplished.

Your mind can either make you or break you.

Great minds discuss ideas

(3). God thinks and He thinks positively

Jeremiah 29:11 KJV
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord , thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.

3 John 1:2 KJV
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

Understand this: the law of the universe demands that every natural force duplicate itself into its offspring.

During creation, God subjected Himself to the same principle.

that creepeth upon the earth. [27] So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

The son of a goat is a goat; a cow can’t give birth to a dog. Likewise in living plant, a mango tree can’t produce a cashew fruit.

It follows that the sons and daughters of God are gods.

Psalm 82:6 KJV
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.

If your father thinks and He thinks positively; you have no choice than to think positively.

This is different from the positive thinking of psychology. It is drawing life from the fountain of revealed truth.

 

 

Mind


Imaginative faculty

 

Dictionary meaning;Mind mean your thought; your way of thinking or feeling.

The story of Lazarus in Luke 6 is that of a man who closed his mind. He left the giant inside of him idle. I want you to know that you re the sole determinant of your height in life.

Every potential finds full expression through the mind. The size of your mind will determine your height in life. If you close the door of your mind or limit it to small dream, you will discover that your potential will be dormant, until you open up.

The best of Lazarus desire was to eat the crumbs that fell from the table. His dream was limited to crumbs. He never could fathom his becoming a rich man. You cannot go higher than your desire in life. Your potential find full expression when your mind is clear and open.

Luke 16:21say and desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man table:moreover the dog came and licked the sores

Many mind are preoccupied with myopic vision. Romans 12 enjoin us to consistently renew our mind with the word of God. The dream you had yesterday, which to you is very big,might be too small for your today. Don’t be stagnant. Upgrade and renew your desires in life.

Sorry I am going for prep class continue when am back

OK I am back.

 

great mind 2

Poverty, sickness, confusion and stagnancy are offshoot of a sick mind. 3 john 2  says, “I wish above all things that you prosper and be in good health even as your soul prosper. ”

Your destiny in life is subject to the state of your mind. If your mind is healthy with the word of God, you will have healthy dreams.

The prosperity of your mind is the prosperity of your dream. The mind is like a water pipe. If it is not clean, it will pollute your desires. Once the desires are low and rotten, the potential becomes weak. Clean up your mind with the word of God. Let the past go. Give room for the new things God wants you to do.

Isaiah 43:18-19says-Remember not the former thing,neither consider the things of old. Behold I will do a new thing: now it shall spring forth: shall you not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and river in desert.
Help God to help you. He will not open your mind for you. You must sit down with the spirit of God through your mind, to believe the impossible. When you read the bible, believe the miracles are real. Stop saying they are fairy tales.
Open your mind to the greatest of God.

when your mind is able to catch how great God is,this greatness unconsciously begin to rub off on you. You will begin to attempt the impossible.

A closed mind is the gateway to your inheritance.

Ephesians 3:20 summarizes it all. It says- Now unto him that is able to do exceedingly abundant above all that we ask or think, ACCORDING to the power that works in us.
Note the word ‘according’.

It means in proportion to going back to the scripture, it means that God exceeding power can only be in operation, through the power that works in us.

It therefore mean that God cannot work outside what man makes available for him.

It is pertinent that you work on your mind regularly, knowing that the mind is God testing ground.

The greatest miracle that can take place in the life of a man is for him to allow his mind to believe that things are possible with God. When your mind begin to operate on this truth, a higher force is released to push you to the realm of exploit. Let your mind open up to possibilities.

Many have closed their minds from attempting great things because the world has tagged those exploits as impossible. This is the key you need to open all doors.

All the people who invented and discovered great things started them in their minds. When the mind is in agreement,the head begins to function. Every signal of progress is flashed from the mind.

Regulate your mind to meditate and dwell on high things. Never allow it to stay low. Staying low and inactive will bring you low. This will be a disservice to God because God is not low.

You have been made in the image of God. That means you carry the divine potential inside you. You cannot afford to live less than the great opportunities the word of God offer you.

Thinking – the mind based activity


20180712_185323_0001

This thing (devil) just go about looking for who is available, who is ready for negativities.

Never again, must it cross my mind that the negative will happen.

Thinking is one of the mind based activities.

Before God, your thoughts and prayers weigh equally.

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” Eph.3:20.

God answers thought as much has he answers prayer. That woman with the issue of blood didn’t had to pray before she got her healing.

“For she said within herself, if I may touch his garment, I shall be whole.” Mat.9:21.

The destiny of man was fractured due to the devil’s attack on mind of the woman. The woman involved her husband by giving him the fruit to eat, Adam too became a victim of deception.

The devil is still at the business of upturning destines through ceaseless attacks on the mind.

God’s word can only gained entrance into you through your mind. So also, your  mind is the devil’s target.

Get this straight: You can’t see dead tomorrow and wake up to see a life full of prosperity and abundance.  You can’t see failure tomorrow and wake up to see success. Everyone gets what they think. This is divine principle. God can’t break this principle because of you.

If God think and think positively, then you and I have no choice but to think positively the way God think.

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not evil to give you an expected end.” Jer.29:11

“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3.Jn.1:2.

Creative positive thoughts are lifting while destructive negative thoughts are inhibitive.

Repent all negative thoughts and cultural perspectives. I wish you realize how powerful your imaginative faculty is, your mind can either make you or break you. In the spirit realm any thought you allow to hold grip on you is regarded accomplished. Very soon it will manifest into the reality.

This is not psychology, it is drawing life from the fountain of truth – the word of God.

Ever since the devil fell, man thoughts has been only evil continually.

“And God saw the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and every imagination of the thoughts of his earth was only evil continually.” Gen.6:5

This is why you must deprogram yourself from this negative pattern of thinking by casting down all mind debris and cultural orientations.
