We are purposed to lift up and magnify God. When we lift up God we lift up our healing and our deliverance. When we lift up God we lift up the perfect love of God that removes fear and every challenge that is being presented to us (1 John 4:17-19). Often times we hear about the power of positive thinking.
I want to talk about the power of kingdom thinking.
Throughout Jesus ministry when he came to minister, He said repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The kingdom of heaven is the mind of God that is the mind of perfect love, perfect power, perfect peace, perfect wisdom, perfect understanding and therefore kingdom thinking. It is the mind of holiness, the mind of wellness, the mind of wholeness. Holiness heals and restores the presence of the Creator God, who is the Heavenly Father of His creation. When we are separated from the life that sustains us to elevate us and uplift us, we suffer from a growing void that is purposed to be fulfilled with the presence of our Creator God, who is our Heavenly Father.
His presence becomes our new way of thinking, our kingdom way of thinking that is a higher and heavenly way of thinking (Isaiah 55:8-9):
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Without faith, it is impossible to please God, because when faith is lifted up God, the Father of faith is glorified and overcomes fear. His eternal presence in us is our healing that is lifted up in us to overcome the insecurity, hurt, pain and heartbreak that is a result of our inner being having a void of His healing presence. God desires us to intimately become intertwined as one with His perfect love; so His perfect love can be lifted up in us to overcome the presence of fear in our inner being that connects with the fear of a fallen world. The perfect love of God is the fulfillment of faith and when we are filled with faith our inner being connects with the faith in this world to awaken a new way of thinking, believing, desiring and responding that is kingdom minded bringing the will of God on earth as it is in heaven.
It is the kingdom of God that came to reclaim and return the people of a perishing world back to the presence of God who is perfect love and our gift of eternal life. This eternal life is what fulfills the inner being of our mind, spirit, soul and body with the presence of the kingdom of heaven. This eternal life is the presence of God that purifies our heart to protect our heart from any presence in thought, word, desire that is not of God’s kingdom and therefore not of His perfect love towards us.
Positive thinking has no power without the truth of God’s eternal wisdom that sets us free from what positive thinking does not have the power to heal in our life and heart. It only has the power to disguise the issues of the heart that is a beautiful nightmare. Beautiful in charm and immediate gratification but a nightmare in the final outcome that ends in spiritual, emotional, relational, intellectual, financial and physical death. Positive thinking rooted in the presence of God’s eternal wisdom is the power that overcomes every negative circumstance awakening in us the power of Christ that will do exceeding abundantly more than anything we can ask or think as referenced in Ephesians 3:20:
Never doubt God’s mighty power to work in you and accomplish all this. He will achieve infinitely more than your greatest request, your most unbelievable dream, and exceed your wildest imagination! He will outdo them all, for his miraculous power constantly energizes you.
It is the power that works in us that is the power of kingdom thinking at work in us to accomplish the impossible making it evidently possible!
