Programming your mind for success involves having the right mind-set. There’s a certain way the righteous ones of God think: they think like their Father, who has thoughts full of wisdom, knowledge, and power.
“Many of the people of Israel will he bring back to the Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous- to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.” < Luke 1:16-17 >
Mark the phrase “the wisdom of the righteous” in the verse quoted above. The Greek word from which “wisdom” in this context is derived is “Phronesis”; It means a mind-set: a fixed mental attitude or a disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to situations, and his interpretations of those situations.
Having this type of mental attitude influences your actions under any given situation. It’s a programming of your mind to reason, respond, interpret situations and behave in a certain way, usually, the most excellent way! Jesus had this mind-set: One time He went up a mountain to pray, and when He was done, it was late at night and there was no boat with which to go to the other side. He didn’t panic or start praying, “O God, please help me now.” No. He just stepped out on the water and walked on it as though it were dry ground. He didn’t think of sinking because he had a fixed mental attitude!
To Him, there wasn’t a difference between the sea and dry ground; nothing was going to stop Him from getting to the other side of the shore. He had a mind-set that had no sense of fear or impossibilities. God expects us, His children, to function with this mind-set, which can only be got from His Word. It will help you form the mind-set of a victor and champion; one who’s more than a conquerer and an undying success.
