RHAPSODY OF REALITIES FRIDAY 8TH NOVEMBER 2019 *IT MATTERS HOW YOU THINK* _And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? (Luke 24:38)._ Many hardly take the time to review their own thinking process; how their minds work. A mind that’s not renewed with the Word will often come up with some of the weirdest thoughts. Such minds are filled with negativism. For example, there’re people who always think that when a law or new policy is introduced, it’s to their disadvantage; they see themselves as victims all the time. Therefore, they carry the burden of mistrusting everybody, because that’s the way their minds work. Even in Church, you could find a member who stops attending services because he thinks the Pastor’s sermon is usually about him. Meanwhile, someone else who heard the same sermons says, “I came to church and that day, the sermon was just about me. I mean I identified with everything the Pastor said, and have made up my mind to make improvements.” Notice that one decided to stay in church and grow, while the other decided to leave the same church. It’s about their way of thinking. Your thoughts can keep you perpetually in the road of success or keep you in failure. It’s the reason we’re to keep renewing our minds with the Word of God (Romans 12:2). Until you change your way of thinking, your life and circumstances won’t change. You’ve got to choose the character of your thoughts. Take charge of your thoughts. God gave us the ability to monitor our thoughts; to accept or reject the wrong thoughts. So, always, be sure that your thoughts are wholesome: “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things” (Philippians 4:8 ESV). *PRAYER* _Great ideas, pictures of success, possibilities and victories continuously brew in my mind. I take charge of my thoughts and refuse negative thinking, for the Holy Spirit causes me to have wholesome thoughts, say the right words and act the right way. Blessed be God!_ FURTHER STUDY: Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so [is] he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart [is] not with thee. Luke 6:45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Philippians 4:8 AMPC For the rest, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of reverence and is honorable and seemly, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely and lovable, whatever is kind and winsome and gracious, if there is any virtue and excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think on and weigh and take account of these things [fix your minds on them]. 1 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: Hebrews 8 Jeremiah 52 2 YEAR BIBLE READING PLAN: John 10:33-42 1 Chronicles 8. #cekano #nnwz2

*AFFIRMATION* FRIDAY 8TH NOVEMBER 2019 I affirm that God has blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places and has made me a blessing. I am a carrier and dispenser of God’s innumerable blessings to a hurting world. Daily, as I walk in the light of God’s blessings for my life and give vent to the Word; I experience progress, promotion, expansion, and spreading on every side. I am on an upward and forward journey only. God’s glory, grace, and power are manifested in my life and in all I do. I am a package of blessings happening everywhere. Anything I lay my hands upon is blessed and anyone I come in contact with receives an impartation of God’s blessings because the blessing of God is alive in me. Hallelujah! I am making progress and profiting in all areas of my life; I flourish like the palm tree, luxuriant and luscious like a well-watered garden. I am fruitful and productive, bearing fruits of righteousness, and bringing glory to the Father in all things. Blessed be God. #cekano #nnwz2
