I heard the Lord say:
“Don’t create a problem, looking for a problem!”
I’m reminded of the text:
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9 KJV
1 to cause to come into being, as something unique that would not naturally evolve or that is not made by ordinary processes.
2 to evolve from one’s own thought or imagination, as a work of art or an invention.
3 to make by investing with new rank or by designating; constitute; appoint:
4 to cause to happen; bring about; arrange, as by intention or design:
Don’t cause something to exist, that didn’t exist before!
Meaning, your mind creates the figments of your imagination…
As Believers, we have to ask ourselves daily, where is my Mind positioned?
“Do I have the Mind of Christ, or another?” (1 Cor. 2:16)
And let the fruit of that position yield forth the harvest of your thoughts.
I’m also reminded of the enemy’s plot, in the book of Nehemiah.
As Nehemiah was finishing the wall his enemies, (Sanballat, Tobiah, and Geshem) could not understand how the Jews were able to take on the work and actually rebuild the wall of Jerusalem.
So Sanballat began making up lies; creating vain imaginations to plot, scheme and even kill Nehemiah for moving forward to the completion of the work.
2 “Sanballat and Geshem sent word to me, saying, “Come, let us meet together at Chephirim in the plain of Ono.” But they were planning to harm me. 3 So I sent messengers to them, saying, “I am doing a great work and cannot come down. Why should the work stop while I leave to come down to [meet with] you?” 4 They sent word to me four times in this way, and I answered them in the same way. 5 Then Sanballat sent his servant to me in the same way the fifth time, with an open letter in his hand. 6 In it was written, “It is reported among the [neighboring] nations, and Gashmu is saying that you and the Jews are planning to revolt, and that is the reason you are rebuilding the wall. And according to these reports, you are to be their king. 7 Also [it is reported that] you have appointed prophets to make a proclamation concerning you in Jerusalem, saying, ‘There is a king in Judah!’ And now these things will be reported to the [Persian] king. So come now, and let us consult together.” 8 I sent a message to him, saying, “Such things as you are saying have not been done; you are inventing them in your own mind.” 9 For they all wanted to frighten us, thinking, “They will become discouraged with the work and it will not be done.” But now, [O God,] strengthen my hands.”
NEHEMIAH 6:2-9 AMP
Nehemiah responded to the enemies antics with a rebuke, then he asked the Lord for strength.
We create what we imagine! And our formed thoughts, become our realities!
This is such a great lesson Lord 🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾
O’ what greatness we can create in the earth and for the kingdom, when we take back our power, and position our mind on things above.
Lord I thank you, that the realities of heaven are my portion. That your original intent of me, has the ability to create destiny for me. I thank you for reminding me that I have the ability to create.
Thank you reminding me to watch my thoughts; how they form and enter my being. And how powerfully they work to become one with me. I declare that your divine spirit lives within me; that I am not weakened or far off from you. I will not align myself with carnal thoughts and worldly processes. I declare that I have the mind of Christ, and I take every thought captive that seeks to raise itself up against the knowledge of you in me. I pull down strongholds and vices that seek to vex my mind, and cover myself in the blood, in the name of Jesus.
Lord I thank you creating in me a clean heart and renewing a right spirit within me. Thank you for reminding me that you’re ALWAYS doing a Great Work in your people and in the earth.
As I look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of my faith; I trust You to direct my path – in Jesus name I pray Amen.
