Time For Your Promotion
by Diana Scothorn
I’ve learned you cannot go to a new level with an old way of thinking. If we want our life to come up higher, our thinking must come up higher as well! Many times in my life, God wanted to promote my life to the next level, but my thinking held me back!
When God brought my husband into my life, the man he had prepared to be my mate, the man I had been believing for ten years to manifest, I almost missed my PROMOTION due to…
…my old mindset!
To “set” something means to place someone or something in a particular position, and you
DO NOT MOVE IT! IT IS SET! When we set our mind on what we are familiar with, we never step into God’s Infinite Wisdom! My husband knew almost immediately I was the one that God had prepared for him to spend the rest of his life. He heard the Voice of God, and he promptly obeyed, without hesitation, to tell me, “I was the one.”
When we allow our spirit to overrule our minds, it is when we are promoted in life! It is not mind over matter. It is SPIRIT OVER MIND! I, on the other hand, had a mindset of how this could NOT BE! It was too soon! God would not rush! My mom was sick and lived out of State, and had never met him! The timing was wrong! What if my children follow my example in relationships and think it’s ok to rush, and the list goes on!
God cannot PROMOTE our life to the next level with our MIND. I’m the way! In the first place, God does not operate with our minds. God works in the Spirit Realm. He had already accomplished everything in the Spirit in advance before we were born!
The moment we took our first breath, He finished our life in that exact moment! That is mind-boggling but true! We will never know what God has already prepared for our life without getting in His Word and getting it from our minds into our hearts!
When our mind begins to agree with His Word, our spirit will be able to comprehend His deep love for us. His Love knows no boundaries! He will take us BEYOND where we have ever been, to get us BEYOND the life we are currently living!
If we want to experience life with the fullness of all God as prepared, and we want to go to the next level, we must be willing to get our MIND out of the way and MAKE ROOM for GOD to do it; his Way!
Isaiah 55:8-9 says,
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
We cannot think about all the times we tried, and it did not work! We have to trust that the Spirit of God knows how to lead us in a way that this time it will work!!!
If we want our life to step up for promotion, we must step up our thinking! There is no way to ever get past where we are if we cannot get past our old way of thinking!
