Reprogram Your Mind

2019-10-02 | 🔗
Our mind is like a computer—how it is programmed determines everything. God, your Creator and Programmer, designed you to live an abundant, victorious, faith-filled life where you can do all things through Christ! But the reason we don’t always live this abundant life is because we’ve allowed viruses to contaminate our software and influence our thoughts with things such as our environment, how we were raised, the people we are around, and hurtful situations. This message will teach you how to hit the delete button and get back to your original software. As you take a look inside and examine your thought patterns, you’ll be inspired to upgrade with God’s Word and let go of what no longer serves you. Don’t let your thoughts limit you anymore. Let God’s Word empower you to live a life of victory!

the enemy will use people to try to contaminate your software i was already insecure intimidated didn't think i could do it when i heard that my first thought was to panic worst fears had come true but then something rose up on the inside get your grace for every season he arms me with strength for every battle i thought to myself those two ladies don't determine my destiny they didn't call me that in equipment annoys me and more than anything else they can't stop me they don't have the final say god has the final say he said i'm well able i can do all things through christ strong in the lord retirement heard their voice delete no thanks not dwell on that it came again and again and again i just kept hitting the delete button the scripture to guard our mind
control the doorway to what you allow in you can dwell on every negative thought every day the torrent comment or you can used to delete it and why what god says about you if i would have left two ladys said play over and over they would contaminated my confidence contaminate myself esteem contaminated my future some of you would go to a new level if you would just start hitting the delete button on every negative thought that comes to your mind that's the enemy to contaminate your software if he can control your thinking control your whole life what is negative discouraging pushing you down dwell on it deleted pay attention to what you're thinking if you go around thinking that you're not talented
then you'll never have the confidence to step into your destiny if you think you're unattractive you'll never meet the people you were supposed to meet if you think you can't break the addiction then you can if you think you've reached your limit then you have not because you can't go further just convinced yourself that you can't the good news is it's not too late can still be calm everything god created you debate here's a key you got to clear out the negative things people have set about you you are not people say you are you are god said you are clear out what the code the teacher said about you small you don't have what it takes deleted quit dwelling on that you're the size you have exam actually what you need for the race that's been designed for you clear out counselor said is to see student you're not called
material deleted urine a student seeds of greatness clear out what the ex boyfriend the experts you're not attractive you're not good enough for me deleted you're a mess capece beautiful attractive possession you may have to clear outward appearance said that post that raised you you're so discipline you're never going to amount to much you can't do anything right deleted you are destined to do great things you're destined to leave your mark on this generation i read a report children that have been bullied in school about how years later those negative words were still having an effect on many of them they interviewed this one man he was is fortys and he looked to be a bright intelligent man buddy not been able to hold down a good job struggle
his relationships couldn't seem to get on course he told how as a child he was overweight he was chubby the other children made fun of him called him names things like loser failure he made the mistake of living those words take root now they were keeping in mediocrity when somebody calls you something good or bad seed is planted in your soil now get to determine whether or not that seed takes root and grows when you dwell on what was said you are watering the seed you a right to become a reality that's why it's so important that were disciplined in our thought life is great when people your blessed your talent you're going to do great things were are those seeds meditate on those throughout the day that's what you were
become a reality but too often the mistake is we water the wrong seeds two ladies that said i wasn't as good as my father if i have water that seed i would have never gotten off the ground and did it wouldn't have been their fault they can't chia seed take root in me all they can do is sow the seed you have control seeds are going to take root and grow in your own saw a lot of times we blame others there we're talking about me they try to make it bad there were criticised me note let them talk all they want you control your own soil well on the negative don't we play what they said over and over your mind though viruses trying to infiltrate your software joshua put it this way if you will meditate on what god says about you
and night then you will have good success and prosper in everything you do when your mind is filled with thoughts of faith thoughts of her thoughts a victory that's what's going to become a reality that man his forties that was still struggling you know why he left derogatory comments play over and over every time he thought about it he was watering that seed year after year then said to say but it became a reality how different what life be if he did just learned to hit the delete button constantly play in the negative going around thinking i'm a masterpiece i'm one of a kind i'm talented i've got seeds of greatness it would be a whole different story somebody may have spoken negative words over to you deleted don't determine your destiny god determines your destiny
we start off every message by saying i am who god says i am we're saying in effect i am not my history teacher says i am who my expenses i am i am now hu the critic say i am i am who god says i am i like to take it a step not only i am who god says i am but i can do what god says i can do that means we know we've been programmed for victory we've been pro when the rain and lie we ve been programme overcome obstacles me are the afflictions and the righteous but the law what delivers us out of them all we will accomplish our dreams we will the right people we will step into the fullness of our destinies when you think like that all the forces of darkness cannot stop prince the real battle is taking place in your mind if defeated in your thoughts you've already lost you got
get rid of the viruses if you will get back you're a regional software putting you by your creator you'll go places that you ve never dreamed centrist thing how little children start off so excited about life there big dreams there become a scientist an aspirin a singer a teacher a ballplayer even the president intimidated the cure they believe they can do anything it's because they just came from their creator their thing has not been contaminated they can still feel the seeds of greatness but too often time they start to get reprogrammed details than what they can't become what they can't do little by little their environment starts to squeeze them down a coach at you're not good enough you're too small their self esteem goes down they see somebody more attractive and they start to feel inferior
all these things begin to distort who they really are before long instead dream and big and believe in possibility thoughts they think i'm never do anything right i'm not that talented i'm just average and our selves stuck in these rights believing we can rise any higher we need to ask why do i think this way who program me to think that i'm average program me to give up on my dreams program me to think i can't lose this weight i can't break this addiction i've gone as far as i can where did those thoughts come from did you have accepted a wrong mindset because environment you were raised in the p that you were around just because it seems normal to you does it mean necessarily normal sometimes we learn to function in our dysfunction
maybe everybody you grew up with was negative when you're not posts to be negative s not normal maybe your friends didn't have big dreams they didn't do anything great in life but that's not k for you that's not normal just but our family members had addictions bad habits don't make the mistake of thinking that's okay for you to live that way viruses that have been passed down that keep infiltrating our thinking god created you to go further to be confident to be free to be healthy positive happy you have greatness on the inside now it starts reprogramming you're thinking i saw a story about this on a german shepherd she was pregnant with puppies one day she was walking across the street and got hit by a car both of back legs were broken
she was able to drag herself off the street and back to her house as the weeks went she began to slowly recover her finally healed but big they weren't properly reset when she walk he could do was dragged her back legs she could walk properly or joints had been messed up eventually she had her puppies they seem to be healthy and whole but if weeks later when they see walking just like whether they drag their back legs was amazed maybe they had been injured in the accident as well took them the veterinary and to have them checked out the doktor discovered there was nothing wrong with their back legs they were perfectly healthy those puppies were simply copying other that's all they had seen model in their mind that's the way they were supposed to walk that's what's half many of us
we saw model growing up the people that raised us they were good they were doing their best but in some way they were in their back legs they were negative discouraged we live negative discouraged they have addictions low self esteem in those same areas or maybe made poor choices in relationships got involved with the wrong people now we're dealing with the same issues we saw them accept mediocrity now mediocrity has been normal to us the good news just like those puppies there is nothing wrong with your back legs those are simply wrong mindset that you developed as you get thinking straightened out your legs will straighten out god didn't make you faulty he didn't aging sub par he creates did you in his image
his masterpiece crowned with favor equipped with talent gives you are destined to live a great life healthy abundant happy face now don't go around drag your back legs you are supposed to go through life inferior steam addicted little gauls little dreams that's not who you are start reprogramming your mind as the head and not that program it with excellence not mediocrity program it with abundance not lack in poverty program it with freedom not addictions this is what my father did he grew up in a very poor environment his parents lost everything during the great depression he had no money no education no future to speak had been programme with poverty defeat mediocrity he couldn't stand there
that's all he had seen thought hey this just my lot lie we're just poor the feeding people but it seventeen years old when he gave his life to christ he started weave ramming his thinking deep down something said you were made for more than this you're not so constantly struggle to barely to lie he could feel seeds of greatness storing on the inside tat was maybe where i am but this is not who i am i may be in defeat but i am not defeated i'm a child of the most high god after he kept hitting the delete button told him you have no future delete god's plans for me or for good to give me a future and a hope you have no money delete i'm blessed whatever i touch wasp you have no education you will never get out of here it's impossible delete delete delete
god is making a way where i don't see a way he's a doors that no man can shut bringing the right people across my path i will step into the fullness of my destiny programmed his thinking with thoughts of fate thoughts of whole thought a victory that's how he rose up out of that poverty set a new standard for our family you may have been raised in a limited environment all you saw model was strife addictions conflict low self esteem mediocrity don't let that set the limit for your life don't go around dragon your back legs god want to go further now it's too by getting rid of the virus is hit the delete but the thought tell that you're gone as far as you can delete your get well delete you know please be addicted delete this as good as it gets delete if you'll get good hitting the delete button you lost boy
a bondage is and you will step into freedom you will break lack in poverty and step into abundance you'll break out of media operating and step up to excellence listen this is a new day strongholds are coming down wrong mindsets are being broken viruses are being cleared out ready for god to do something new get rid just see his goodness in amazing ways that sounds encouraging but i don't know all the air bert say i'll never get well the experts say i'll never get out of debt tell me i've gone as far as my education allows this is as good as it gets this respectfully but the experts can be wrong the expert told us we would never have this building but here we are today
the experts told my mother that she had a few weeks to live but thirty three years later she still alive and healthy the experts told us lakewood would never make it without my father but we're doing pretty good i read about a bumblebee all the laws of aerodynamics will be should not be able to fly its spain is too small for the size of its body it can't get enough live but here's the key no they told the bumble bee get the memo no ex we're able to talk it out of it the bumble bee felt its way is on its side something dna said i'm supposed to fly i'm not made just call around on the ground it go check with the experts it didn't read the latest engineering report it just
what was natural and started flapping its wings took off up into the air if that bumblebee would have been able to read the negative reports would have been able to listen to the naysayers never got off the ground it starts in our thinking if you don't think you can be successful you want if you don't you're talented then you're not if you don't think you'll meet the right people you never will not because you're not able to but because of your software you're thinking limiting you when coral louis was training for the olympic games the x said no person can jump over thirty feet the scientist ignoring all their calculations than all their research according to their data no one would ever be able to jump that far a reporter asked carl lewis what he thought about it he's yes i know the experts say it can't be done but
listen to that kind of talk i know thoughts like that we're slipping down to my feet he went on later that same year to jump over thirty and break the world record are you allowing negative thoughts to drop down to your feet stifle your potential why don't you do like he did start hitting the delete button may i have told you how impossible it is how it's not going work out how you're not to get well and i mean it respectfully because the experts when the best they can with the knowledge that they hear what i'm saying is god the final say he wouldn't put the dream in your heart he wouldn't have given you that promise if he didn't have a way to bring it to pass delete what the naysayers have told you delete that guaranteeing words delete the negative report you gotta get back to you original software some of you this is the only thing that's holding you back
