There is power and authority in having a made up mind.
It is critical to remember that our view of God determines our view of life. When God is our reference point, we can make sense of that which doesn’t make sense. If our circumstance is our reference point, nothing will make sense because we will have a distorted view.
Our first responsibility as a Christian is to build a relationship with God. We must have an understanding of the sovereignty of life. God is the ruler and controller of all creation. To say God is sovereign speaks of His Kingship. God has control over everything that happens. He either caused it or allows it to happen. You cannot have a sovereign God and have luck. God does not deal in luck!
God is a God of order. He is wrapped up in order. God’s sovereignty says things are under control when they appear to be out of control. We must let God have control and stop making decisions based on what we think. We must align ourselves with the will of God!
No matter what’s going on in your life, if you will continually walk in integrity God will raise you up. We have to keep our eyes on the hand of God, not what someone has done to us. Whatever has been done to you in the natural that men meant for evil, God will turn it around.
God never promised our road would be easy; He promised never to leave us. The key to joy in spite of people is a submissive mind, the mind of Christ which is the POWER OF A MADE UP MIND!
