For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.”
‭‭Romans‬ ‭8:6-7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

As long our mind is not renewed with God’s Word it makes it difficult for us to submit to God’s will. Our mind always wants to understand things before it does them. But the things of the Spirit is contrary to the way our mind functions. Understanding only comes to the mind when we obey God’s Word. This one of the measure reason why many have limited God in their lives. They are trying to understand before they do, instead of doing before understanding. A great example is the story of Naaman.

So Naaman came with his horses and with his chariot, and stood at the door of the house of Elisha. And Elisha sent a messenger unto him, saying, Go and wash in Jordan seven times, and thy flesh shall come again to thee, and thou shalt be clean. But Naaman was wroth, and went away, and said, Behold, I thought, He will surely come out to me, and stand, and call on the name of the Lord his God, and strike his hand over the place, and recover the leper. Are not Abana and Pharpar, rivers of Damascus, better than all the waters of Israel? may I not wash in them, and be clean? So he turned and went away in a rage. And his servants came near, and spake unto him, and said, My father, if the prophet had bid thee do some great thing, wouldest thou not have done it? how much rather then, when he saith to thee, Wash, and be clean? Then went he down, and dipped himself seven times in Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God: and his flesh came again like unto the flesh of a little child, and he was clean. And he returned to the man of God, he and all his company, and came, and stood before him: and he said, Behold, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, but in Israel: now therefore, I pray thee, take a blessing of thy servant.”
‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭5:9-15‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Naaman nearly missed out his miracle because he tried to figure out God with his understanding.

Today is a new day, with fresh opportunities. Yesterday is gone. Change your equation of walking with the Lord and I guarantee, you will soon have a testimony in Jesus name

Hearing + Doing = Manifestation + Understanding.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank you for giving me Hearing ear and obedient heart. I refuse to allow my way of thinking stand on your way of blessing for my life. I surrender my mind to full obedience to the voice of Christ and His Word in Jesus name. Amen.
