united together by faith
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus....
Philippians 2:5-11 KJV
Can we do something united together by faith and in spirit?
Iíd like to ask you to 1) agree and believe with me for those in
need of restoration in their mind, and 2) let me know if you are
one of those people so I can pray and believe with you. Let me
Today Iím bringing before the Lord a specific need in many peoples
lives. In my own life Iíve experienced the affects of what Iíd
like to pray towards this day. You see, many people experience
extended seasons of trials and pain. Others learn and gain victory
right away in Christ and others kindaí have to go around the
mountain until the work that God started is completed.
Iím one of those people who at times, couldnít see what the Lord
was doing in me because I was distracted by the pain of what
circumstance He was using to get through to me and build me up in
faith. In these seasons of being focused on the wrong things
caused those learning lessons(seasons) to be extended. There is
pressing and pain and trial that brings blessed increase in
relationship with the Lord. It can take a toll on the mind and you
can become weary in well doing. Iím sure many can relate to what I
I missed it over and over until a brother shared that with me what
Iím telling you now. That if we love the Lord and He orders our
steps, what happens TO us is ALWAYS about what Heís doing IN us.
Itís NEVER about the circumstance, it ALWAYS about the fruit of
So now, I look for what Heís trying to accomplish in me and the
test and refinement happens quicker. Call this a growth spurts if
I digress. What can happen in these prolong seasons of emotional,
physical, spiritual, or even relational pains is you start to
become familiar with the dysfunction and adapt it as a part of
your identity. You actually become perpetually in a state of
unrest(even once delivered) because your mind has become accustom
to thinking through filters of discomfort. Remember how the
Israelites came out of slavery but slavery was still in them
though they were delivered? They weíre in slavery so long it
became their identity even when they were free.
The good news the Lord can restore this! And I know He wants to! I
hear the Lord say I make ALL THINGS NEW!
He can restore your mind to think in the way like a child.
Innocent and new. Sometimes we need God to wipe the canvas of our
mind so that we can seek for HIS mind. Letís lose our mind
So will you believe with me for the restoration in those who have
asked for prayer in this area? Letís pray for one another. If you
are one of those people that have a need in this area of
restoration, please reply and let me add your name.
Letís believe together! BE YE TRANSFORMED by the renewing of your
mind in Jesus!
I bless you in the name of Jesus - Thomas & Mandi + 6 Awesome
