Topic: Drop that mindset
Main Text: Matthew 9:17
“Neither do people pour new wine into old wineskins. If they do, the skins will burst; the wine will run out and the wineskins will be ruined. No, they pour new wine into new wineskins, and both are preserved.”
So you see, if you decide to allow your computer to be a “prostitute” allowing all sort of drives from unknown and unverified sources to be inserted into it, as well as visiting unsecured sites, there are two things involved, either pregnancy or contracting of STDs. Note that even with protection, the unexpected happens. But for now I want to dwell on STDs.
When a person’s PC becomes hijacked by viruses and no attention is paid to it because the PC seems to be working perfectly, it gets to a time where everything comes crushing down, either operating system crashes or hard drive does.
If the former happens, it could be repaired but definitely not at zero cost, important files could be lost if formatting isn’t done well but if the latter happens,then there will be no other option than replacing with a new one.
My point exactly is that so many minds have been corrupted because people were allowed to walk in there with dirty feet. Some peoples minds have been fed with too much negatives allowing all sort of ideologies to get inside there and further eroding the already depleted mind!
The sad thing is because the mind seems to be working well enough, less attention is paid to it, not even a scan for “viruses” is done.
The reason for this post is that, the year has almost ended and in the coming one, people are looking forward to their breakthroughs. But wait a second… who gets big deals and breaks with old strategies?
That same one you’ve been working with for years that hasn’t yielded any result, why are you still with it?
Today I want to announce to you that, every move of God starts with repentance. God will not put new wine in an old wineskin. It will be a waste! He will not put new ideas in an old and weak mind, it just can’t process!
There’s got to be some positive change in 2017, and wherever there is change, there is a shift but there is no shift without a shake.
Somebody it’s time to shake somethings off…
Just like computers, the operating system and the hard disk of some human systems(mind and heart) has crashed.
Some need formatting and others new hard drives and until this issue is resolved completely nothing useful will come out of that system.
What to do now?
Are you ready to repent and get fixed by the one who made you? The only one who has the prototype of your model.
Then Try these 3R’s
Turn from negative ways and dedicate yourself to the amendment of your life. The purpose of repentance is letting go of old, limited ideas and investing your belief in new expansive ideas.
After letting go of the old, you must replace with new ideas, where else can you find these if not the word of God? You must feed on every word of God so you may live and prosper.
This is where you let your faith do all the work. After putting in your best, leave the rest to God, and watch Him work on your behalf. Trust in God is very important at this point else you will have a restless rest.
Lord, thank you for my life and this message .Please forgive me as I forgive the sins of others. Help me live out these words lord that I will have a fulfilling year ahead, in Jesus name, amen.
