The Holy Spirit is constantly working to do something divine in the lives of believers. But because of the devil’s work which always influences and prints people’s thoughts and emotions through various bad or negative events and conditions that have befallen their lives, various doubts and confusion arise in the mind whether in considerations, arguments, opinions, logic and human point of view, thus making many people tend not to believe in what God is doing.
Mark 16:9-18 (NKJV) Now when He rose early on the first day of the week, He appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom He had cast seven demons. She went and told those who had been with Him, as they mourned and wept. And when they heard that He was alive and had been seen by her, they did not believe. After that, He appeared in another form to two of them as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it to the rest, but they did not believe them either. Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
Even though the minds of hearts of the disciples became unbelieving, Jesus still put His faith in the work of the power of the Word and the Spirit that the Father poured out to fulfil the Father’s will.
Therefore, let’s align our minds with the following principles of truth:
Proverb 4:23 (ERV) Above all, BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU THINK because YOUR THOUGHTS CONTROL YOUR LIFE.
Philippians 4:8 (TLB) And now, brothers, as I close this letter, let me say this one more thing: FIX YOUR THOUGHTS on what is true and good and right. THINK ABOUT things that are pure and lovely, and dwell on the fine, good things in others. THINK ABOUT all you can praise God for and be glad about.
Romans 8:5 (NKJV) For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but THOSE WHO LIVE ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT, THE THINGS OF THE SPIRIT.
Romans 8:6 (ERV) If YOUR THINKING IS CONTROLLED BY YOUR SINFUL SELF, THERE IS SPIRITUAL DEATH. BUT IF YOUR THINKING IS CONTROLLED BY THE SPIRIT, THERE IS LIFE AND PEACE.
Rise up in the power of the Spirit, destroy all the forms of the enemy’s works and various human and worldly minds to be brought back into harmony with the truth of the Word. Let’s become believers who easily believe the Word and always experience the reality that God is real.
Mark 16:19-20 (NKJV) So then, after the Lord had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of God. And they went out and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs. Amen.
As Jesus Christ who has been seated at the right hand of God, bringing power and authority from heaven, so the church which is His body is also given the power and authority of the government of the kingdom of God to convey good news to the people, witnessing the power and works of God that are full of wonders and miracles, to bring many people in touch with the reality of the kingdom of God.
For this to be realized in our lives make sure that in these days our minds continue to be disciplined with the work of the Word and the Spirit. Continue to train our minds so that they are reprinted because when our minds undergo a change to become aligned with the Word then the reality of God’s kingdom will become more real in our daily lives.
Ephesians 4:22-24 (NKJV)
The word “be renewed” in Greek is written with the word “ananeoo” which means “renovated or remolded”. So, various forms of worldly and human thoughts must be remolded, until we have a high desire and interest in spiritual or divine things.
Get ready, the moment of revival in Indonesia is getting closer. Believers and God’s church who continue to persevere in aligning their minds with the truth of the Word, will experience their lives as a portal or gate for the presence of miraculous (supernatural) things that will bring many people back in touch with the reality of God’s kingdom.
