Winning Ways 2

 God created the earth ... you create your world. 

God created you ... you create your life. 

Psalm 139:16  - all the days God has ordained for each person are recorded in God’s book even before we begin life ... God has an ‘ideal’ life for you and I to live ... but that ‘ideal’ life is subject to our freedom of choice ... we make those choices based on what we think and believe.

It was God’s perfect will and intention for Israel to go into the Promised Land forty years before they did ... there was an identifiable difference between the mindsets of Joshua and Caleb and the rest of the ‘spies’ and the people of Israel ... they thought differently and believed different things and God’s perfect will for them was deferred to another time and another people because of the choices they made ... dying in the Wilderness was a direct result of their thinking, believing and decision making  ...    Now, that’s a scary thought! 

Here’s another spectrum of thinking that reflects Winning Ways compared to ‘losing’ ways...

  • Highly effective people approach life with the intention of ‘winning’.
  • Less effective people approach life with the intention of ‘not losing’.
  • Highly effective people know that to ‘win’ in life they must apply themselves, back themselves, commit themselves, make the right decisions and position themselves to win.
  • Less effective people know that in order to ‘not lose’ they must not have too much confidence in themselves, not position themselves too far out of their comfort zone, and always have an escape plan in place.
  • Highly effective people understand that in order to win you have to take risks, you have to focus on your long term goals and you must be prepared to put in serious effort over an extended period of time if you’re going to enjoy the results of victory.
  • Less effective people understand that in order to ‘not lose’ you can’t take risks and you have to always be in control. Less effective people tend to focus on short term results and lifestyle gratifications.

Where do your current mindsets position you on that spectrum?

Romans 12:2indicates that there are different ‘levels’ in the will of God ... it is God’s intention that we each walk in His ‘perfect’ will ... the ability to do that is determined by our not being ‘conformed to this world’ but our being ‘transformed by the renewing of our minds’ ... our thinking ... our believing ... our mindsets and perspectives.

Until next time ...
