Many word of faith, born again, Spirit filled Christians use faith as a work. We are trying to move God with faith. No, I am going to tap into the moving that is already going on with God, because I am going to change my thinking and all I’m going to do is think about spiritual things.
I’m going to think about spiritual things and as I do the Holy Ghost starts working a change in me. I look back at where I was and where I am now, it just boggles my thinking how I got from point a to point b spiritually speaking. All I did was just think on spiritual things, that did it all. The Holy Ghost did it and the more I think on spiritual things, the more the Holy Ghost does.
Do you remember what Jesus said? It’s like a man sowing a seed. You go to sleep at night and you wake up in the morning and you think how did that seed pop up. I don’t know how, all I know is the Holy Ghost did it. As I set my mind thinking on spiritual things all of a sudden the Holy Ghost started changing me on the inside and the outside. He changed me on the inside until it began to radiate on the outside. That’s the way he does.
Titus 3:4-5 says, When the kindness and love of God our savior toward man appeared not by works which we have done but according to His mercy He saved us through the washing of regeneration and the renewing of the Holy Ghost. See what we talked about the renewing of your mind same thing who’s doing the renewing, the Holy Ghost. What are you doing, you are just thinking. That’s all you are doing, just thinking. That’s it. Well Pastor it can’t be that simple. I’m telling you it is! That’s what I’m trying to get you to see.
I’m just thinking about Jesus, just going through life thinking about the Lord what he has done Hallelujah and while I’m thinking the Holy Ghost is working on the inside. Then I just get up one morning and I say, wow, I have been changed! Then I’m going to think some more and go from one degree of glory to another degree.
Look at Romans 12:2, ” And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind so that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” God has a will for you life, God has a plan for your life, and as you start to think on spiritual things the Holy Ghost will start moving you towards that. You are not going to get there next week, you didn’t get where you are at in a week, But as you change your thinking you go from one degree of glory to another degree.
If all you are thinking about is what your going through that day, this is not going to happen. If all you are thinking about is your problems this is not going to happen. If all you are thinking about is your pains, your aches, your failures and your weaknesses then this is not going to happen. But if you will think about the law of the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus, if you will think about Him, think about his finished work, think about what he has done, set your mind on him then your reasoning and emotions will change and when they change then it will transform you from the inside out. You will be changed, and there is no condemnation in that at all. No condemnation what so ever.
