Ephesians 1:11 – In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will…

God knows the end from the beginning. He knows who chooses to follow him. These He gives a great bit purpose and destiny. Do not fear! He is working all things for your good because you love Him!

Declaration: Because I choose to love Jesus, I am chosen. God has promised a thousand generations to those who love Him. My children and grandchildren have a place in God’s family. 

Thinking Kingdom

Whether you know it or not, there is a battle going on for your mind. Whatever controls your mind, controls your words and your actions. Disney? Porn? Netflix? Gossip? Anger and bitterness? Financial fear? I’m sure some of these will hit home for you as they do for me. 

While the devil would love to control your thoughts, and tries to take your attention off the things of God, the Holy Spirit puts up a fight by reminding you who you are to God and how you fit into His kingdom.

You see, a kingdom mentality is one that says, “You are a valuable and privileged part of something much bigger than yourself.”

And He said, “To you it has been given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…” – Luke 8:10

A kingdom mentality is one that says, “You are a part of something special that will never end.”

…and of His kingdom there shall be no end. – Luke 1:33

A kingdom mentality is also one that says, “You are in and you can never go back to what God has brought you out of.”

…And Jesus said unto him, “No man, having put his hands to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.” – Luke 9:62

Do you have a kingdom mentality? Do you see yourself as a child of God, part of the family and a joint-heir with Jesus bringing heaven to earth? If not, get your head out of the lap of “Media Delilah” and listen to the word of the Lord. 

Get rid of your worldly, me-centered mentality and see what God’s plan for your life is. His way is always the best way!
