BIBLE VERSE: God saw all that He had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Genesis 1:39

It is important that you learn to believe in yourself. People tend to believe in individuals who believe in themselves. They support, promote, do business with, want to be served by, give opportunities to, want to be treated by, invest in the vision of, buy products from, learn from individuals or organization who believe in themselves. You wouldn't want to be treated by a doctor who does not believe in himself or herself.

All around us are products of individuals who believed in themselves. These people believed in themselves, worked hard, and God crowned their efforts with success. The founders of Facebook, Microsoft, iPhone, etc., wouldn't have been able to achieve what they achieved if they hadn't believed in themselves.
Believe in yourself. According to Genesis 1, God is the perfect Creator. Many of us are not where God wants us to be not because of demons but because we don't believe in ourselves. You are full of wonders. You are wonderfully and fearfully created by God. You are loaded with abilities far beyond your imagination. You are not hopeless or worthless. There is a lot of good things in you.

MEMORY VERSE: and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect, Romans 12:2

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Num 16, Ps 52-54, Isa 6, Heb 13

There are many true child of God who should be CEOs or chief executives in big organization who are ordinary supervisors, team leader or section leader. There are many believers who should be employers of thousands who are currently looking for jobs. There are many spirit filled Christians who should be lending to nations who are still struggling to pay their house rents. There are many sisters and brothers who should be married with at least two kids who are still looking for the right partners. There are many faithful tithers who by now should be living in abundance who cannot afford three square meals. There are many faithful workers in the vineyard of God who are long due for one kind of promotion or the other who are at the same level they were five years ago. Why is this so, is it that God has seized to be faithful? God has not seized to be faithful. 1 Thessalonians 5:24 says faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it.

God has opened big doors for many but they have not been able to take advantage of these doors because of their thoughts and beliefs. These thoughts are known as self limiting beliefs or thoughts. The enemy has been using these thoughts in one way or other to keep believers at the same level year in year out. 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. You are what you continually think about. If you continue to think of falling sick, before you know it you will fall sick and vice versa. If you entertain success thoughts, don’t be surprised when you become successful and vice versa. Romans 12:2 says and do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect. Promotion comes once your thoughts changes. Transformation comes when the thoughts of the hearts are renewed. 

One of the self limiting beliefs that have kept many stagnant in life is the ‘I am not good enough’ belief. The enemy has used this belief to rob many of their open doors. An opportunity comes along; instead of taking the opportunity they begin to doubt their ability. You are good enough because the bible says every creature of God is good, 1 Timothy 4:4. Not only that, you are full of wonders, Psalm 139:14.Since the bible cannot tell lie, whatever the bible has to say about is true then. A thought that has prevented many from taking important decision is the thought of failure – what if I fail, what if something goes wrong, what if I don’t measure up to standard e.t.c. A child of God cannot fail because it is impossible for God to fail. There is no single case of a believer ever failing in the bible. If no believer has ever failed, it will not start with you. You have God on your side so you cannot fail. All you need is just belief. Mark 9:23 says all things are possible to them that believeth.

PRAYER POINTS: Father, rid me of every self limiting beliefs and thoughts.

Freedom indeed

John 8:36 says if the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

The first thing to learn from this verse is there is no freedom anywhere else except in Jesus . One of the names of Jesus is the Truth ,John 14:6 . John 8:32 says And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free .There is no freedom in joining the occult because it is selling ones life to the devil. At times there is no freedom in divorce because in a bid to become free through divorce, one rather ends us up in a bigger bondage. Malachi 2:16 says For the LORD, the God of Israel, says that he hates putting away: For one covers violence with his garment, says the LORD of hosts: therefore take heed to your spirit that you deal not treacherously. There are many teenagers who see moving out of their parent’s house as means of getting freedom. Most of them later find out twenty, thirty years later that the decision to leave home at a early age restricted them and set them in bondage one way or the other. Freedom only comes from Jesus. Romans 8:2 say because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death.

Another thing to learn is there are two types of freedom. According to John 8:36,  there is one called ordinary freedom and there is freedom indeed.  In Luke 5:1-7, Peter received freedom from fruitless efforts. In Luke 13:10-17, the woman with the bent back received freedom from her sickness of eighteen years. In Luke 17:11-19, out of the ten lepers Jesus healed, nine of them received freedom but the one that came back to praise God received freedom indeed. The bible says he was made whole. One way to receive freedom indeed is to be thankful for the freedom we have received in Christ.

Do you know that it is possible for Jesus to set a man free and the man still remains in bondage? Proverbs 23:7 says as a man thinks, in his heart so is he. Gideon was born a warrior –mighty man of valor but his self limiting belief put him in bondage. Imagine the one whom the angel of God addressed as a mighty man of valor calling himself a weakling (Judges 6:11-15) , so also Moses and Saul. They were all born to achieve mighty things but their self limiting believes worked against them.

ACTION POINT: Jesus has set you free; do not put yourself in bondage with your thoughts.
