MFM Mountain Top Life Daily Devotional 30 December 2018 By Dr. D.K Olukoya – The Power of Thoughts
TOPIC: The Power of Thoughts (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 30 December 2018)
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 10:3-6
MEMORY VERSE: “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” – Philippians 4:8
As a man thinks in his heart, so he is. It is the thoughts of man that make him who he is and what he will be. If your thoughts are positive, then it is good, if not, it is bad. It is a universal rule that what you do not see cannot become a reality. Joseph once saw himself as a great man and it came to pass. Your thoughts have the power to create what you are thinking for you. Your thoughts are forces you send out to work on your behalf. Fear is the wrong use of imagination. For one to raise new questions, new possibilities and to regard old problems from a new angle require imagination and positive thoughts. If you must remain an undefeated soldier of Christ, you must align your thoughts with God’s thoughts. If the devil wants to attack you, he starts with your mind because, there, resides the power of imagination. The whole mechanism of evil is based on evil imagination. The actual warfare is in the pulling down of imaginations and the dissolution of evil thoughts. The foundation of every spiritual defeat is to allow the devil to use your thoughts against you. It is within your power to deploy your thoughts positively. Job said in Job 31:1, “I made a solemn pact with myself never to undress a girl with my eyes”.
In Job’s resolution above, he used his thoughts positively by telling and agreeing with his eyes and body what it could do and could not do – it came from within. It is from within that we conquer ourselves and then conquer without -external battles. This is why you must pray for discernment as this helps us understand every challenge and trick of the devil. Job 26:4 says, “With whose help have you uttered words and whose spirit has come forth from you?” If a wrong thought comes to your mind, cast it down with the word of God. If the devil says you are a loser and a poor low life, at once, your mind will begin to imagine it, but beloved, it is within your power to cast down every evil imagination and take the thought captive by reminding yourself that Jesus, through His blood, has made you a king. You can further engage the tongue in a language of sonship made possible through Jesus and finally invite the presence of God by singing praises.
IT IS WITHIN YOUR POWER TO CAST DOWN EVERY EVIL IMAGINATION AND TAKE THE THOUGHT CAPTIVE.
Receive the power to resist the devil.
- Anything in me ministering negative thoughts, loose your hold and die, in the name of Jesus.
- My inner man, receive the power to be unmoved, even in the midst of a storm, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, give me a willing heart to meditate on Your word and exercise the power of positive thoughts, in the name of Jesus.
- Evil imagination, my life is not your candidate, jump out and die, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, sanctify my thoughts with the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
- Power of positive thinking, enter into my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Anointing for creative ideas, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
