random thoughts for 2012…
it’s time to change your ‘default’ mindset… the behaviour patterns you settle into when nothing much seems to be happening.
lose the old religious tradition defaults. train your mind to take on a new default.
imagine israel at the red sea, with the egyptian army closing in. their mindset was one of unbelief & complaining… a slave mindset. moses’ mindset was one of passivity… wait for god to show up & do something. so moses’s mindset was a step up from the slave mindset, but he was still in need of an upgrade.
moses says ‘god, you need to do something’.
god says ‘moses, you do something’.
god deliberately allowed this situation. god wasnt picking on them… quite the opposite. he was giving them the opportunity to break out of the slave mindset, & get an upgrade.
but they continued to cling to the default mindset of complaining & unbelief! ultimately this opened the door to more destructive & delusional thinking. it was almost impossible for them to receive anything good from god because their hearts were hardened.
but eventually two people ‘get it’. joshua & caleb. they get an upgraded mindset, a new way of thinking.
all the miracles that god provided for israel in the desert were for the equipping of his people to be able to step into enormous favour. he was looking for a people to walk in the favor that he promised to abraham…
And I will make you a great nation, And I will bless you, And make your name great; And so you shall be a blessing.
so fast forward to present day… daddy god is looking for a people to walk in the favour of their big bro, & king, christ jesus!
take the challenge. don’t run away. it’s time for an upgrade.
