Key Thoughts On Mentality – Seeds Of Destiny Devotional, 7 July 2021 By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Mentality affects possibility.
Our anchor Scripture makes it clear that mentality determines reality. As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. That is to say the realities of a man’s life are a reflection of the thought of his mind.
I will like you to take note of these key thoughts on mentality or mind-set:
1. Mentality sets the limit on destiny
Proverbs 23:7 says, For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
If your mind says, “This is where you will remain”, and you agree, that is where you will remain. Your mentality sets the limit on your destiny.
2. Mentality determines possibility (Proverbs 23:7)
Luke 1:45 says, And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
Mentality affects possibility. The possibilities you experience in life are determined by your mentality.
3. Mentality is the determinant of reality
Things are real twice, first to the mind, and then to the physical eye. For example, the structure of the Glory Dome, Dunamis Int’l Gospel Centre, at the Airport Road, Abuja, was first real in the mind, and then it became real on the earth. The architect has the picture in his mind, before he puts it on paper.
All truths are parallel. As it is in the physical, so it is in the spiritual. What you think in your mind becomes real in in your life.
My counsel is, change your mind-set positively. Become different so you can overcome what is limiting people around you.
Remember this: Mentality affects possibility.
