The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
In my past two writings I have brought to you the awesome revelation that we as children of God have the opportunity to walk in a word managed attitude and that we are able to come to the place where we can receive a attitude adjustment. To continually walk in victory.
If you have read my precious two writings on Heart-Thoughts of DK—Adjusting your Attitude and More than a Conqueror, then I believe that you will agree that for the most part many of Gods people are in need of an attitude adjustment.
And yet this is a place that is foreign to most children of God and the reason being is because their lives are dominated by their emotions and how they feel..
The sad truth is that most Christians realize that they are not walking according to the word of God and that they are for the most part dominated and over whelmed by their feelings.
Do they like it?
But they never go beyond that which is physical, they never go beyond that which is emotional and walk and live in that which is managed and controlled by the word of God
Here is reality and not only reality but truth, we as children of God can be empowered by the word to live according to the word.
I wonder how many of you have heard this old adage and it says
“Your attitude determines your altitude”
Your attitude determines the place in which you are going to walk, the place in which you are to fly as an eagle or flutter around on the ground like a chicken
Your attitude determines whether you walk in victory or defeat.
Ask yourself a question?
What is your attitude?
Does your attitude, your way of thinking, you’re outlook, your philosophy is it filtered and flavored through the word of God
The word of God needs to be a filter inside of you that takes every piece of information, every thought, every opportunity that is presented to you and it needs to be filtered through the word of God.
In my last writing “More than a conqueror” I shared with you how your feelings are not based upon truth and that feelings are based upon perceptions of what you may be feeling at the time but they are not facts.
I need to say it again,
Feelings are based upon perceptions, perceptions of what some one else might have said, upon what some body else might have experienced, based upon statistics and how you feel about any given thing, but they are not based upon the word of God.
And the word of God is the only standard of truth that the born again child of God can rely on if that child desires to walk in the fullness and completeness of who God is in them.
Your feelings are based upon perceptions of what you might think to be truth but in reality they are a lie masquerading as truth
Perceptions of truth are not facts and truth is facts based upon the word of God.
Let me give you some facts that are true that will make you free.
#1 you are a brand new creation and old things are passed away and all things are new.
2 Cor 5:17
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
#2 Not only are they new, they are new every morning
It is of the LORD’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.
They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him.
The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
The Lords mercies are not consumed, His compassions do not fail, every morning they are new
#3 Great is His faithfulness!
He is faithful and because He is faithful, He is my portion; He is my hope as I seek His face,
These are the facts, this is truth
But how is it that you perceive these facts and truths.
Do you perceive them though your feelings, do you not see them as new every morning because of what you may have went through during the previous night,
Do you not see how great His faithfulness is because of the trouble that you are now experiencing?
#4 you are above only, you are not beneath, and you have been made the head and not the tail.
And the LORD shall make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath; if that thou hearken unto the commandments of the LORD thy God, which I command thee this day, to observe and to do them:
#5 you are complete and you are finished.
For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
The same spirit that Christ has in Him, you have in you, the same resurrection power that was present is Christ is present in you, the same faith that Christ had to raise Lazarus from the dead lives inside of you
The same ability to cleanse the leper, raise the dead, cast out demons and heal the sick lives on the inside of you.
Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead , cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
You have all the faith that you need.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith .
#6 you have access to all the promises in the word of God
2 Cor 1:20
For all the promises of God in him are yea , and in him Amen , unto the glory of God by us.
#7 everything that you need you already have.
2 Pet 1:3
According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
#8 everything that pertains to this life and this salvation has already been provided to you.
1 Cor 3:21
Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours;
Does your thinking and your attitude exhibit this truth that all things are yours?
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
The scriptures are plain, when the Father gave us and delivered up His Son for our safes how could he not with His Son give us all things pertaining to His Son
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
The Lord God gives grace and glory
2 Cor 4:15
For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
What a tremendous scripture,
All things are for your sake that abundant grace might through thanksgiving may super abound to you for the glory of God
Is this how your attitude is managed and controlled or is your attitude managed and controlled by,
I am not adequate,
I am just a sinner saved by grace
I can not do it,
I can not be victorious around that person,
I can not walk in love around that person,
I can not forgive that person,
Everything is stacked against me,
I need more faith,
I need more grace when the grace of God is already abounding towards you.
Your thoughts ought to be about that which is abounding towards you instead of that which you feel you are lacking in.
The image that the word of God has placed in front of you, the picture that the word of God is portraying is that you are more than a conqueror.
And yet for many of you that is the last image that would ever fill your head.
Your life should not be about starting in a place of defeat hoping to go to a place of victory instead it should be about starting in a place of victory that forever allows you to walk in that victory.
Your perception of truth should not be about what you are feeling, not about what sounds good or what looks good and what seems to be good,
Your truth ought to be based and filtered through the word of God bringing you to the place of victory and walking according to what the word of God proclaims through a renewed mind.
How many times have I heard people pray?
Oh God come down
Oh God we desire your presence
Oh God give us a visitation
Oh God fill this place
Oh God protect us and be with us as we leave this place today
Why do we pray such foolish things when His word tells us that He will never leave us nor forsake us?
Why do we pray for protection when He says that He has given His angels charge over us to keep us?
Why do we say that we are sick when the word of God tells us that we are healed by His stripes?
WHO TOLD YOU THAT YOU WERE SICK
My body told me I was sick, I had tests run and they prove that I am sick
Physical results are not the ultimate truth.
There is a higher truth that is superior to physical truth and that is spiritual truth
Spiritual reality can live side by side with physical reality and if you will believe the spiritual reality it will change the physical reality
We the Redeemed ought to be shouting and praising His Name
When are people going to get this?
Many are struggling right now with what I am saying because they are thinking how you can say that you are healed when you are sick,
How can you believe that you are delivered when you need delivered.
How can you be something that you are not?
I am not being something that I am not.
I am being what I am in Christ
I am being what I am in my spirit
I am looking from the perspective of who I am in Him and not who I am in me.
I do not walk in depression; I do not walk in discouragement, I do not walk in hopelessness, I not walk in burn out and I do not walk in mood swings,
My spirit has never experienced any of these things.
The world and society has a excuse for everything that happens
If you are an alcoholic or deep in depression it is because you have a chemical imbalance.
If you have a sickness it is because you were unfortunate
If you are a homosexual it is because you were born that way
If you have an anger problem, a bitterness problem,
If you have o problem of unforgiveness it is because of what you have been through,
If you are struggling with showing love it is because the person you are trying to show it to is unlovable.
These lies come from man and the philosophies’ of man and even though you might think that they are true they keep the captive in bondage.
In the spirit these things are not so
In the spirit there is no trouble loving because it covers a multitude of faults
In the spirit there is no bitterness, no unforgiveness, no anger, no abnormal traits, and no drinking problems.
Because there are no lies and no excuses in the spirit.
The only thing that exists in your spirit is truth and when you come to that truth it makes you free.
Here is what is present in your spirit
It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
These are the things that are in your spirit so let us live and walk in the spirit.
And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.
If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
So if we live in the spirit and walk in the spirit there is no fear
2 Tim 1:7
For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
And the first step in walking in the spirit is for you to know what is in your spirit so that your attitude can be adjusted according to the spirit.
