... we are more than conquerors through him that loved us..(Romans 8:37)
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the name----Jesus? A good man? A wise man? To some, a fictional character that may not exist? I've come to tell you that the name of Jesus is more than that. Don't knock it until you try him.
The word says that taste and see that the Lord is good. I can tell you all day about the apple but if you have not tasted it, you won't know its flavor. Many get angry at God because their prayer was not answered, but I've come to tell you that God, still, answers prayers. The only requirement is that you've got to come by the book---The word of God!
Perhaps some that read this think I'm in denial, but I've come to tell you that Jesus is real. When you invite him in your heart, you have it all. How? By this simple word---Wisdom! The world is looking for wisdom. One of the definition of wisdom is getting answers to complex problems.
The word tells us that Christ is made unto us wisdom.(I Cor 1:30) That means that when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, he becomes wisdom inside of you. Think of this--You have a genius living inside of you! The word says that you have the mind of Christ. The word Christ means the anointing and we know that its power will break the yoke of the enemy!
That doesn't mean that life will be a bed of roses. There will be challenges--There will be tests! Why? Because we live in a fallen world. Many Christians are going under and some wind up in mental institutions---Why? Because they have allowed the circumstances to defeat them! What you don't know can hurt you! The body needs to know what they have in Christ.
That is why the word says---Let this mind be in you! (Phil 2:5) You have to let the mind of Christ rise up and help you in life. How? First, you ask him for wisdom. When you do that, that wisdom that is inside you will rise up and provide answers. Another way is through prayer. Spend some time alone with him. Practice being silent and hearing his voice.
Another way is through confessing the word. The word, itself, has the power to give you wisdom. Get up everyday and confess the mind of Christ. Confess that you are wise. Confess that you are his sheep. As we identify with him, you will see the end result. No matter what you are going through in life, remember God knows the end from the beginning. He will turn your testings into testimonies and make you more than a conqueror!
Prayer---Lord, thank you for your word. I confess in this day that I have the mind of Christ. I confess that I am his sheep and hear his voice. I am wise and I always make the right decisions. I will not be moved by the circumstances because they are subject to change. Your word is mighty and will change circumstances to conform to your word. I cannot lose because I am more than a conqueror. In Jesus Name---Amen!
