The Thinking I Am

The Thinking I Am


A thinker is a creator.

As we awaken to the Christ consciousness, we transition from a mortal thinker who is a mortal creator to a divine thinker who is a divine creator.

In our mortal mind, the five senses entomb our thoughts in false beliefs, creating a shadow-self that prevents the expression of the Divine (true) Self. The five senses deceive the mortal mind into holding onto false beliefs; which create erroneous thoughts. The deceived mind of the shadow-self is incapable of divine thought. This entombed mind abides in darkness with no awareness of the light of its divinity, producing thoughts that create a suffering and death-bound reality.

In my last post, I mentioned how all is energy and how our thoughts and emotions affect this energy which in turn shapes the reality around us. Consequently, our thoughts create a reality that is either an expression of our shadow-self or an expression of the Divine Self. We either hold our reality energetically bound to our false or shadow-self or liberate it to be an expression of the true or Divine Self. We bind or loose energy through our thoughts. Therefore, when we change our thoughts, we alter our reality’s energy and change our reality.

Each one of us is the center of his or her reality. All we know of our reality is what has been created through our consciousness. As we think, so is our reality. Therefore, as our thoughts change so do our circumstances, interactions, expressions, relationships, and so on that define our reality. We begin to see the depth of our creative power and where we once felt uncontrollably subjected to our reality, we learn that we create it through our thoughts.

When thoughts are created by the divine mind (Christ mind), they create a reality we truly desire. If we think we can fulfill our desires by the mortal mind (rather than the Christ mind), we inadvertently rob ourselves of all we truly desire. I Am the way, the truth, and the life. ~ John 14:6

Divine Thoughts

Divine thoughts create substance (creation) reflective of the divine attributes. These ever-expanding divine attributes include: strength, divine power, vitality, divine love, honor, loving kindness, gentleness, transformative grace, humility, tranquility, equanimity, magnanimity, liberty, mindfulness, beauty, abundance, harmony, oneness, honesty, truth, wisdom, eternal-present, gratitude, sovereignty, and joy.

Through the Spirit’s continual guidance and instruction, our thoughts are transformed into divine thoughts by:

  1. Becoming one in our soul (in its seven elements) to the Christ consciousness. Our soul elements shape our thoughts. Thus for our thoughts to be divine, our soul elements must be divine. The Spirit accomplishes this by giving us a deep soul understanding of divinity and leading us through transformative meditation that manifests this oneness in our consciousness.
  2. Letting only the thoughts and feelings that support divine attributes abide in our mind and rejecting all others.
  3. Speaking and thinking only what we want and not what we don’t.
  4. Filling our mind with thoughts that are supportive of divine attributes by focusing on the pure Voice within.
  5. Turning away from any aspect of the world that strengthens the thoughts of the shadow-self so divine thoughts can grow and expand.
  6. Facing every obstacle in our reality created by our shadow-self with Divine Gratitude. Gratitude extracts divine truth from the past and gives life to our present moment by the understanding we gain from it. And the truth gained expands the Christ consciousness within.

As we consciously participate in emptying ourselves, the Christ consciousness expands within us. We awaken to a sovereignty over the plane of the senses, where the soul was held in bondage by the thoughts of the mortal mind. In the Christ-Mind what we perceive through the senses can no longer entomb us. Where once our thoughts created and perpetuated all forms of suffering and death, they now create ever-expanding immortal harmony.

We become a new creation who creates a new creation.

River of Life

River of Life


As a growing awareness leads our soul out of the self-directed consciousness, we become emptied of the desires and beliefs of our shadow-self. This liberation and cleansing of our soul and mind enable the inflow of the Christ consciousness and the outflow of the Divine Self.

The Christ consciousness is the aspect of the divine consciousness that is united to the human soul.

The Christ consciousness is defined by divine love. So, as divine love begins to dominate every facet of our being we awaken to oneness with the Christ consciousness. Because love is manifested between two or more, one of the first phases of our transition into the Christ consciousness entails divine love flowing into all of our relationships. Divine love infusing these relationships causes radical shifts in our once held beliefs, desires, thoughts and emotions. This shift in consciousness (ascension) sends divine energy into creation, which forms a divine reality.

Our Creative Power

As we transition into the Christ Consciousness, A) our ability to perceive that all is energy expands significantly, B) we comprehend to a greater extent how our consciousness directly affects the flow of energy within creation and C) we grow in the belief that we can significantly alter reality through our consciousness. As a result, we recognize the creative power inherent in the Christ consciousness which becomes our power. (Exemplified in Jesus Christ stilling the waters, healing the sick, etc.)

As we are yoked to the Christ consciousness in our soul, mind and body, divine love begins to define all our thoughts and emotions, infusing divine energy into our reality. Our reality reflects this energy back to our consciousness which creates a circular life-giving current.

Everything is energy. Because the flow of energy is continuous, our reality is immediately impacted by our current state of consciousness. Thus, as our thoughts and emotions change so do the energetic vibrations of our reality and what they create. If our energy is of a low vibration (created by thoughts and emotions contrary to divine love), then it reflects  disharmonious and chaotic conditions in reality. If our energy is of a high vibration (created by thoughts and emotions supportive of divine love), then it reflects harmonic and tranquil conditions.

Gateways to Divine Energy

As divine energy is a love energy, this energy enters into our reality through the gateways of our relationships. As we mature and become outlets for divine love energy, we become powerful agents that transform our reality through the relationships in it. These relationships include our interactions with all aspects of creation. Though people vary in their receptivity to divine love (divine energy), when divine love flows through us it impacts all to some degree, because of its divine power. So, as divine love begins to govern our thoughts and emotions, it alters our reality. Understanding this creative dynamic between our state of consciousness and energy is foundational to understanding the workings of our creative power.

The more we perceive and believe in this creative power, the more our consciousness can alter our reality. Our ability to change our reality depends on how we handle the past. If we hold onto old thought forms of the past, our present moment seems static, unchanging and dead. However, if we learn and grow from our past through the counsels of the Christ consciousness, then our present moment is fluid and growing. We energetically release the present moment and it flows as a vibrant River.

During this harmonizing to the Christ consciousness, we move from a static conscious awareness limited by the perception of our senses to the ever-growing awareness of the divine consciousness sovereign over the senses (and all other realms of consciousness). We become rivers (lamps) for the current of divine energy, which is infinitely more powerful than any other form of energy because it’s the vibration of eternal life. In this oneness with the Christ consciousness, everything in our reality begins to change in accordance to its divinity, and our present moment that was once static and dead transforms into an ever-flowing River of Life.

Standing at the Gates

Standing at the Gates


A new thought, a new reality.
A divine thought, a divine reality.
In the realm of our thoughts lies the power of God.

To enter the Kingdom of Heaven (the divine consciousness), the soul relinquishes control of its reality to the Divine governance and trusts it implicitly, like a child.

In divine gratitude, the soul lets go of all and desires to witness the Creator’s workmanship in every aspect of soul, mind, spirit and body (our body is the reality,”our world”; which we each create through our consciousness). Sinking into this deep trust and letting go of all control thus fear, an eternal light begins to shine within. Subsequently, the mind detaches from the past and future, and rides the moments of the eternal present. In a state of eternal rest, the soul observes the workmanship of the Creator through its own consciousness.

The Creator’s sovereignty, which is grounded in divine love, is my greatest comfort. This sovereignty expresses itself through our consciousness; for ours is a drop of His. It’s through our consciousness of our divine-self that we know Him. It’s through this consciousness that we express Him. What can possibly concern us when we truly believe this is true?

We know our Creator through and by his divine attributes. Thus, these attributes that define his Spirit are my inspiration and the fulfillment of every hope in a perfection of an ever-expanding beauty and abundance. My heart rejoices in his bountiful, endless, and ever-expanding gift of his Spirit that flows through me as I desire to let go of all contrary to it, and desire to give this Spirit abundantly and without hesitation to All. All is You. You are All. 

These beautifully rich divine attributes are my soul’s daily meditation until all is revealed as one: I give and receive in endless joy and gratitude of my divine-self (the true part of my likeness that has lived in the shadows of my illusionary false-self that I thought was me), the divine Spirit (the Christ Spirit); a Spirit of infinite strength, power, vitality, divine love, honor, truth, sovereignty, loving kindness, gentleness, wisdom, equanimity, magnanimity, grace (mercy and forgiveness), humility, liberty (carefreeness of spirit), tranquility, present-mindedness (eternal present), oneness,  mindfulness, harmony and abundance. The place of God; the I in me.

This Spirit finds its home among the framework of truth the Spirit of Truth knits into the soul along its soulful journey of enlightenment and awakening. This temple of divine glory produces the Kingdom of Heaven on earth through the thoughts it manifests. The Creator lifts up the soul out of the deep humility he created within it and pours out His divine thoughts. Through this open gate, the Creator’s power is manifested in the soul and in the world.

Regeneration of Thought

Regeneration of Thought

“And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.”

Revelation 22:1

Out of our heart flows either living waters of life or bitter waters of death; depending upon our heart, which is the seat of our character.

The purpose and definition of eternal life are the same: to grow in the divine character of the utmost supreme divine spirit, the heavenly Father. John 17:3 When we are seeking the heavenly Father, we are seeking the awareness and the attainment of His divine character; the harmonious integration of all the aspects of His nature: like righteousness, holiness, honor, justice, compassion, long-suffering, mercy, kindness, strength, abundance, wisdom, truth, purity, love, peace, rest, and perfection. Thus we cease striving to obtain finite external objects of our world, and reorient our focus, in all areas and in all things, to knowing, understanding, obtaining and giving of this character as expressed through our unique untainted personality and given resources. Matthew 6:24, Matthew 5:48

When we focus on this character, the material world around us manifests as it should lacking nothing and in all things creating an abundance. Matthew 6:33 Divine character creates an internal and external reality of growing satisfaction and delight; a reality of harmony with God, ourself, others, and creation. It’s a reality in which our present moment gets eternally better. Seeking to know and be a part of this perfect character is what it means to seek after the heart of God.

This divine character has no images. To understand it is to “see the face of God”.  Psalm 80:19, Ezekiel 39:29 What we actually do see with our physical eyes is its expression and reflection in creation, and these manifestations are numerous and varied.

God has no images, and tells us not to create images. Leviticus 26:1 Ironically, this is exactly what mankind has done. We aren’t to create or pursue images, but pursue this divine character beyond all images. To put images on God or to seek to create certain images in our external environment is to limit our own understanding of the divine nature that will be expanding in our awareness for eternity, and to cease to let the divine character establish our external reality as it should be, thus creating harmony. (Attainment of the Divine Character)

Out of the heart flows all things. Proverbs 4:23 Our heart, our character, establishes our thoughts which determines our actions. Our reality is the sum reflection of our thoughts and actions. Therefore to alter our reality to reflect a divine nature, God, we have to obtain a new heart or character. Ezekiel 11:19 Obtaining this character comes by fostering an ongoing communion with the source of divine character. It’s meeting God in the depths of our soul, for that is where our character resides, thus where all the transformation takes place. Through this communion of understanding and grace, the divine character of God makes its home within us, changing us from our core.

Without inner reflective mediation, we remain unaware, thus blind, to the spiritual understanding that leads to transformation and growth. We believe, do and create what we first know. Romans 10:17 It’s by an inner communion with the spirit of God within us that we are changed FROM within. It’s by this internal dialogue with pure consciousness that we gain understanding and transition from a flesh finite mind to a spirit eternal mind. It is here, within, that our will comes into submission to the heavenly Father’s will. The regeneration of ourselves into new creations, thus this world, is a regeneration of the source of our thoughts, thus our thoughts. Matthew 19:28, Titus 3:5 It’s living waters flowing where one bitter waters ran.

We have to look within to see outwardly in truth. When we have turned our eyes of understanding inward to see the light, His divine seed with us – a divine seed of His character planted by Christ – then our outward perception changes. How we see our outward reality reflects the new vision we have gained by looking inwardly. We start seeing through the Light, understanding of truth, and thus our words, actions and what we create are of a life-giving spirit.

John 7:38 “He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

Living waters flow out of our heart, when our heart is of God, thus His throne. The living waters are pure thoughts; pure thoughts flow from a purified heart, which is an ever-perfecting character. Living thoughts create a reality of eternity.

When our soul’s foundation is of the heavenly Father’s character, though our understanding is finite, our actions harmonize with His will. Having His character enables us to trust and follow our desires for they are His desires. When we do what we want to, in the understanding that our actions create harmony (the sum affect of divine characteristics), then we have absolute freedom. In this way, God can direct our actions today to create a harmonious future. Not being all-knowing, we have no idea what lies ahead, but through purified desires, the spirit of God can guide us perfectly. Psalm 37:4, John 8:32

When we seek God’s divine character, which we eternally grow into, we become eternal because all we create is perfect and harmonious. Romans 8:28 Our thoughts thus actions cease to create destruction. We become truly alive for we are growing in the elements of eternity. When His pure heart has replaced our corrupt heart, then His divine character replaces our corrupt character. We become His offspring, a son/daughter of God, and an eternal creation.


A Mind of Eternity

A Mind of Eternity:

Truth Replacing Lies Masquerading as Truth

In a recent video, How We Carry the Presence of God, I described how we interact with our Heavenly Father and thus His wisdom. (note: I’ve been doing a lot more videos as the new wine is forming, thus I haven’t been able to keep up with all of them here, but please check them out for they hold very powerful truths: Stirring the Deep YouTube.) Through this communion is how we disconnect from receiving from the mass consciousness of letting mankind’s wisdom fill our thoughts, and connect to the pure consciousness of letting our heavenly Father’s wisdom fill our thoughts. When you make this shift you start to gain a mind of eternity, the mind of Christ. Romans 12:2, Matthew 7:21, Matthew 12:50

When you begin receiving from the pure consciousness of God; then what you automatically put into the mass consciousness is that purity. 1 Timothy 3:9, 1 John 5:4 This is how Christ, the Word of God, is going to renew the earth. He develops His perfect mind in those in true communion with His spirit, and they put the thoughts of that mind into the mass consciousness. John 17:17, 2 Thess 2:8 This is Christ coming with His saints. 1 Thess 3:13 It’s Christ’s spirit united to those who have been purified, then they spread His spirit, the spirit of truth and kingship, into the world. By having their mind cleansed into the pure consciousness of God, over time they alter the mass consciousness. Hebrews 10:22 Galatians 4:19, Matthew 25:31 It’s like medicine to a sick body. Romans 5:12-21

The mass consciousness will keep altering until it’s consumed in pure wisdom; thus all truth and no lies. (A lie is a concept/idea presented as truth promising a certain outcome.) 1 Corin 15:22-28, Isaiah 52:1-2 This is why the saints are the light to the darkness. The light is the wisdom of God, the darkness is the wisdom of mankind under the sway of evil. Matthew 5:15-16, Job 12:22

This pure truth will eventually replace all the lies. Lies only continue because the truth is not known. Without truth, people believe a lie as truth because they believe some thought, word or act produces something good; when it actually produces harm. When a lie is exposed by the truth in all its fullness, for there can be many layers to a lie, then it disappears. It was never real, so it ceases to exist.

Fear comes from a lie trying to hold on; it is what you feel when a lie is fighting to stay alive in your mind. Thus, as the lies are being usurped by the truth, fear will increase among those holding onto the lies. This is why there is no fear for those walking in righteousness; and those in unrighteousness are consumed in fears. This is also why you want to be seeking TRUTH in LOVE from God Himself; fear is a debilitating state of mind that produces significant harm. Proverbs 10:24, Isaiah 14:3, Isaiah 54:14

People operating by the corrupted mass consciousness exist in death. It keeps them bound in lies and false images about the past, present, and future. Lies are attached to images because they aren’t real. The image they are attached to makes them seem real. When the images are revealed for what they are; illusions, lies are destroyed because they were never real in the first place. (Images like what is a successful person, a happy life, a desirable woman, to be intellectual, a godly person, who God is, etc.) Because lies aren’t real, those who believe them and live by them are “non-existent” or dead. They aren’t living in reality. Psalm 115:4-8

Do you see how an image makes a lie real? Remember when you use to believe in Santa Claus? You had an “image” of him in your mind supported by people and things around you. When you learned he wasn’t real; you no longer had that “image” in your mind. If you lived a life serving an illusion like Santa Claus, what would your life be? The most damaging image we can possess is a false image of God; which religions create in the minds of people. When you have a false image of God; you are bound to death, the pit, and darkness and to all other images that imprison you; for He is the truth, way and light you need to be freed in every way.

The eternal mind is a polar opposite thought process from the mass consciousness under evil’s sway. Seek this mind of Christ.

This huge mind shift from operating as a dead creation of a finite flesh mind to a living creation of an eternal spirit mind has begun within the elect, the light bearers. I’ve been talking about this shift in recent videos, like Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life. To live in the wisdom of God is to live in the present moment in truth/love. The present is what is real, not the past or future. In the present is where God exists. To abide within the presence of God requires us to be present spirit minded.

“Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;
The fear of the Lord is His treasure”

Isaiah 33:6


Veiling of Spiritual Laws

Veiling of Spiritual Laws

To abide in peace, loving kindness, wisdom, power, freedom, joy, rest, love and all of the purest of your desires, which is the presence of God, isn’t rocket science but it’s a perfect science. It’s a science of spiritual laws based on a foundation of loving kindness; because their Creator is love.

Creation is crafted in incredible wisdom; which is obvious with even the simplest observation. This wisdom is made up of various types of laws; like physical and spiritual laws.

Spiritual laws are what we, the spirits, operate by to function perfectly. If we understand and live by them, we do well. If we don’t live by them, we don’t do well. This is why seeking this wisdom of the Creator is essential to all else. Proverbs 4:7 If you continually go against the law of gravity by jumping off of buildings, you are going to continue to get hurt. If you constantly go against the spiritual laws, like kindness without hypocrisy, you are going to continue to get hurt.

The problem is the spiritual laws have been masked by lies and thus not discernible by many.

Veil Over Spiritual Laws

The reason the spiritual laws are hidden to most people is because the laws have been covered in lies; a false truth presenting itself as truth. Most people are only aware of the lie covering the truth, and not the truth. Thus lies abound.

A false truth that claims to produce a certain end but it does not is a lie. A truth that does produce what it promises is a spiritual law. Proverbs 10:22  Lies promise the things of the spirit (peace, joy, love, etc) and yet never fully deliver. Truths promise these and do deliver. Thus, there are two contrary groups of thought around concepts; one of lies and one of truth.

Lies and truth influence our minds because they influence the source we draw wisdom from. There are two places we can seek for wisdom; the mass consciousness of man (mankind’s wisdom) or the pure consciousness of God (our Heavenly Father’s wisdom). James 3:15-17  Only seeking from God’s wisdom will we abide in pure truth; because mankind’s wisdom has been over-runned by lies. Think of these two places as two clouds, or air masses, of thought. Like air, wisdom exists but you don’t see it, you only see the results of it like a tree blowing in the wind.

If you control the awareness and understanding of the spiritual laws; you control the spirits abiding by those laws.

This is why spiritual laws continue to be covered in lies.

Because a lying spirit, Satan, seduced mankind to stray from truth, lies formed within the individual consciousness of man, which automatically feeds the mass consciousness. Romans 5:12 This is how lies spread; people holding lies as truth feed and withdraw from the mass consciousness, thus infecting everyone. If truth is not known, the lies can’t be detected. Some lies may be revealed for what they are, but as long as people are drawing upon this one source they will always abide in lies to some degree.

This is the domain Satan, the lying spirit, reigns. This is why he is referred to the prince of the air. Ephesians 2:2 This is how the world is under his sway, because most only interact with the mass consciousness by learning, seeking and gaining wisdom only from it and not the pure consciousness/God’s wisdom. 1 John 5:19

How Does a Lying Spirit Reign?

A lie generates when someone wants to gain a certain result and misleads someone to get what they want. Once the lie is received by another, it’s manifested in the mass consciousness. The more people believe in a specific lie the stronger it grows. Thus some lies abound and others stay small within the mass consciousness.

Some unknowingly manipulate the mass consciousness for evil, and others purposely manipulate it by the thoughts they put into it. This is the essence of “fear-based” news, advertising, TV, movies, media, magazines, various institutions, corrupted governments and religions, certain programs, organizations, schools, etc. These entities purposely influence the mass consciousness for certain purposes; money, power, fame, status, control, etc.

For example take advertising. A desirable image, like a beautiful woman, is attached to a concept, product or service. The ad suggests that if you embrace what they are selling you will have the desired image the woman projects. This is manipulating and influencing the mass thought of mankind to act in certain ways. This is one example of thousands on how people are manipulated by this mass consciousness. To stop interacting and succumbing our mind to all these manipulation sources is to “come out of the world.”

This mass consciousness among many things is full of empty images that keep people bound to certain lifestyles causing them pain. The lie posing as truth keeps them bound to being and feeding the source of the things that cause pain and suffering in their lives. It’s a place of contrived images that tell people who they are, who others are, who God is, what to pursue, what is success, what is valued, what is desired, and so on. It’s used to oppress, control and manipulate people for all kinds of evil purposes. It’s a very corrupted spiritual realm of thought, in which most people interact with all day long. This dynamic of the mind being shrouded in lies creates the prison, the darkness, the pit.

To operate in accordance to the spiritual laws, one has to willing unplug from the world’s wisdom by seeking the pure wisdom of God.

More on this next ….


Free – the Prison of Your Mind

The Awakening

The Awakening

Light as a sword cuts through the darkness
Where it goes life replaces the corpses.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

The voice long silenced breaks forth in song
A melody of love is forged and strong.

Truth takes flight changing the course of time
In response the soul plays a new rhyme.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

Thoughts transcend to a new dimension
Creating a path of freedom in redemption.

Though a flower dies upon a field of gold
A new bloom rises bearing eternity untold.

A thought dispelled, a bond broken
An act redeemed, a life spoken

Eyes wide open see a crystal lake
An awakening brings birth of no mistake

Heaven rejoices in voices and strings
For one new birth among the beings.

Circle of Life … PART 2

Circle of Life … PART 2

Continued from previous post … Circles of Life … To be Born Again Part 1

To be “born again” or “born from above” is to be born of the spirit of God leaving the spirit of man behind. John 3 Only by being born again into the spirit of God can we escape the bondage of the spirit of man because it is only then that we leave that circle.

Once born for a second time, the source of who we are isn’t of man but of God, thus we are new creation. Galatians 2:20. The source changes everything. No longer are we connected and tied to the corruption. Instead we are connected to God thus eternal life. Therefore the “issues” we developed and owned start to fade as the chord is broken.

Consider what this means. It’s tremendous. No longer are we bound to that spirit of man and all the corruption is creates. No longer are we bound to our destructive behaviors. No longer are we bound to our past. No longer are we bound to those who hurt us. This is a significant part of what it means to be born again – you literally start feeling and acting like a new creation. Once you’ve truly experienced this new life – it will blow your mind – literally… (more on that in a minute). It frees you from the corruption thus your “issues” and you are truly able to move into a different place in our soul leaving the corrupted past behind.

HOWEVER, though we are born of the Spirit of God, we can still walk in the old life like we are still in the other circle. We do this because our minds are not aligned to our new spirits. Our spirit is there – our minds have to catch up. Our bodies are machines; machines that are trained to function and respond in a certain way. Most of what we do is automated – our responses, thinking, attitudes, and perspectives. And all of these were developed when we were attached to the spirit of man, thus they are formed in corruption. Thus, our minds need to be rewired to align with our new spirit. Our machines need retraining and it starts with the hub – the mind, which directs everything else. Beliefs, ways of thinking, emotions, perspectives, attitudes, lies, and deception are all aspects of our minds that have to be renewed in God’s truth and wisdom.

As we seek God’s wisdom in the Bible and the Holy Spirit’s instruction, our minds are rewired to be in sync with the spirit of God. As a result, the “issues” we had start to dissolve and we start to live in freedom. The fruits of the spirit, the words and ways of God, God’s wisdom and truth take their place.

The renewing of the mind is a process; it isn’t instant. Further, it requires our participation. It takes dedication to seeking God’s instruction, a willingness to let go, to walk in God’s ways, and a strong desire for truth. If we don’t make this journey of renewal we will remain trapped to the spirit of man by our minds, though we have been severed from it. This is how many believers live. It’s a sad state because they have been given the key to freedom yet fail to use it.

It’s like a man who has been in prison and one day released. Though free, he continues to live as a prisoner. He doesn’t understand what it means to be free because he has been imprisoned for so long. His mind is wired to think like a prisoner and therefore hasn’t come in sync with the reality of his condition, freedom.

The renewal of our mind is an essential component of experiencing the new life we’ve been given. Though we are free we can still live like we aren’t. Spiritual birth isn’t our choice just as physical birth isn’t, but this renewal is where we do have a choice. John 3:6 When the disciples asked what is the work of God, Jesus responded it is our work is to believe in Him, which is our new life. John 6:28-29 That means our part is to spend time with God, abide in His Word, listen to the Holy Spirit, and respond in obedience to His leading. If we do, over time our minds are transformed and come in line with the spirit of God. When our minds are transform to a certain extent, we literally feel born again and like a new creation.

When we seek and commit to the journey of developing a transformed mind, we will start experiencing amazing freedom, fruit of the spirit of God, the Kingdom of God, and a new reality. We’ll experience the freedom, joy, abundance and love we’ve longed for.

Our minds are a powerful tool. We can choose to seek God and His truth or we can choose to remain as we always have been.

What circle do you want to be a part of? 1 Corinthians 15:22


The Many Lies that Devalue Us

The Many Lies that Devalue Us

Our enemy’s (our self-governed will) greatest weapon is lies. Therefore our greatest power is truth (the substance of faith and belief). If we believe lies, they have tremendous power over us. If we know and believe the truth, they are powerless. Knowing the truth is how we are able to trample on serpents and scorpions, and have all power over the enemy Luke 10:19. It’s a LOVE for the truth that protects us. 2 Thessalonians 2:9-10

Of the lies that abound, some of the deadliest and most pervasive are in regards to devalue. Devalue of ourselves that we are replaceable, worthless, useless, and unwanted. Devalue of others that they are replaceable, worthless, useless, less, and unneeded. Devalue of God’s power and love in our lives. Devalue of the importance of truth. Devalue of sex, marriage, and relationships. Devalue of women and men and various nationalities and who they are as God created them. Devalue of everything. If you take time to look around you will see that lie is eating away at the souls of many people in a multitude of ways, perhaps eating away at your own soul; it has mine . . . until I sought the truth. That is what the enemy, our self-detemined will does – he or she creates messages of devalue sometimes wrapped up in glittering paper of power, control and life. And the lies start the moment we are born.

Further, it’s a lie of our internal enemy telling us want we can’t be or can’t do. God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that you ask or think. Ephesians 3:20 Nothing is too hard or impossible for Him. He knows no boundaries, neither should we.

John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.

Our lying self hits us from all sides. He or she tries to devalue who we are as well as God. If she can minimize our beliefs in God then she wins for we live by faith – faith in who God is, who He is to us and who we are to Him. Our beliefs are everything. If our beliefs are full of lies, then our lives suffer for it because we think, feel, and act based on our beliefs. This is why God instructs us to get wisdom, to get understanding. Proverbs 4:7 He has given us all we need – His Word and His Spirit to teach us all things. We only need to seek with a heart to know the truth.

Let me tell you who you are. What God told me the other morning.

You are irreplaceable and of infinite value. For God to give His son to save your life shows the extent of your value. Would we give up our precious innocent child for someone undeserving? Even if they were deserving? The fact that you don’t believe in the value you have and therefore act out a life of devalue doesn’t make it truth. Your true purpose is far greater than you can imagine. You were created by a God to be unlike any other. It’s the lies believed then acted upon that corrupt what was good.

God created you with a uniqueness unlike any other. Because of your uniqueness there is a place for you to fill in this world that no one else can. People make up a huge puzzle. No puzzle piece is the same and each one is crafted and shaped to fill a certain place in this world and in the lives of others. Acts 17:26 We are all needed to complete the whole; no piece can fill another’s spot. This is how God made you. This is how you need to treat yourself, others, and your relationship with Him.

Each relationship is different in that each person is unique so when two come together that relationship is unlike any other. A relationship with one child is different from another though you love them both the same. Each one of us has a unique relationship with other people and each one with God because we are different. There is no one that can replace us in any relationship. That’s why God desires all of us to be saved. 2 Peter 3:9 Anyone would be a great loss. This uniqueness and love God has for each one of us is shown in the parable of lost sheep. Luke 15:4-7

We’ve been inundated with lies and owned many of them as our truth. Seek His truth in His Word and learn from Him (not man) and you will find who God truly is and who you really are.

Psalm 139:14 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvellous are thy works; and that my soul knoweth right well.
