Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.
For the longest time i was stuck in the same place of self unworthiness derived from my belief of others definition of me. It was so real i could see and feel it.
We were carjacked in broad daylight on Mombasa Nairobi highway as we drove to Nairobi. It was a very traumatizing experience for me. For many months, i freaked whenever a car passed me and stopped to let an occupant alight. I would nearly freeze. It was worse whenever i drove within the vicinity where the carjacking took place. I would tremble, overspeed and almost freeze in fear. I could easily have drove myself into a crash, yet in reality chances that i would get carjacked in the same area were next to none. I had allowed that incident to take a big part of my life. I was stuck in that moment whenever my mind revisited it.
Most of us spend our entire life stagnant in a place we failed, where we were hurt, where we fell. It is a waste of time. These things are bound to happen in life. We must face challenges and obstacles. And if we give the enemy the chance to keep us down, we shall stay there. If you listen to his voice, directly reminding you, or through others who will tell you how this or that is impossible. You cannot find a husband if you are a single mom. You cannot find a job in a particular firm unless you are this or that. The list is endless.
However its up to you to renew your mind through the word of God and know the truth which shall make you free. In the bible Moses gave excuses why he couldn’t lead the Israelites out of captivity. So did Joshua. Sara couldn’t imagine how she could have a baby. She laughed. But in all these instances what happened? It came to pass. It does not matter what you feel about yourself. What you should know is that with God nothing is impossible. Instead of remaining in your fallen state, rise up and move on.
Renew your mind. Do not allow strongholds in your life to decide your destiny. All high things must come down for only God should be on the throne in your life. Renew your mind, you will be amazed at the possibilities awaiting you.
May the good Lord enable me!
