The Power Of A Changed Mind Paul Adefarasin
You are being parented by God. Even as an adult, you are not past training because you never matriculated from correction. You never graduate from chastening. He disciplines you today even though it is painful for Him and you so that you don't mess up your tomorrow. So don’t refuse God's chastening. If you endure it, it causes Godly character. It protects you from poor decisions later in life.
However, there's nothing more transformational than a changed mind. Christianity is more than a religion, it requires a deep internal mental change. In order to change your mind, Apostle Paul warns us that the process God uses to change your mind is painful but in the end, it yields a life that is pleasing to God.You may want to change a read of your life but are not ready to make a mental change it requires. The man by the pool of Bethesda wanted the healing but didn't make a mental change until Jesus showed him how. Some people just want to wallow in empathy and enjoy the pity of others.
Don't trade your future for a life of bitterness because bitterness is terrible. It leaves you so dysfunctional that you're out of sync with God’s purpose and His plan for your life. Get your life together. God wants to do something in you and through you. He wants to bless you. So change your mindset. God is consistently, throughout the entire span of your life, going to be in the process of training you. Training sometimes requires some painful correction. You need to make your mind available for change. Work on your relationship with all men. Pursue peace with all men. Be a conduit for God to flow through you, for His blessings to flow through you.
Stop fighting against every little thing. Let it pass! Make up your mind every morning to forgive everybody you will encounter that day so you're flowing in the spirit of mercy. Unforgiveness hurts you more than those who have wronged you. Work at living a holy life, for those who are not holy will not see the move of God in their lives. Holiness is not a matter of anything external. It is a matter of the heart.
