DO YOU HAVE SPIRITUAL SCHIZOPHRENIA?
In Latin, the word schizophrenia literally means “ a splitting of the mind”. This condition seems to describe a big percentage of the current world’s population. The people of God are not excluded; we have always had to battle the spirit of confusion, any many have fallen into spiritual schizophrenia because we fail to ROAR and WAR.
The scriptures say to present our bodies a living sacrifice and to be transformed by the renewing of your mind. To organize our life, we must first assimilate our thoughts to bring order to our thinking. Only after we submit our will to God, will we rise to a higher place or dimension where miracles are the norm. GOD is dealing with the natural side of us first. Listen to the word of God, let it influence the way we think and then, let our new thoughts change the way we live. Our circumstances are not going to change until your thinking changes.
According to James 1:15, the evil desires conceived in our mind give birth to sin. Thoughts have presence, and they travel faster than light. The moment we think something, it is bound to happen. Our thinking, however, can also change in a flash just from hearing something good or bad. That is why it’s important that we focus on things that are true, lovely and of good report.
If the head is not right, the body will not function correctly. In the church, the Pastor is the head. You show honor to the head by listening and heeding the word that God delivers through him or her. Amos 3:7 says that the LORD does nothing without revealing His secrets to the prophet first. So, if you have a problem agreeing with the word that comes from the mouth of the prophet, then, your mind needs to be renewed.
You are called to be not only a hearer of the word but a doer also. If you remain a hearer only, you become a spiritual schizophrenic. Double-minded people know what to do but choose to do something altogether different. It seems they have excuses prepared in advance for not doing what God requires of them. Don’t follow the world systems like a robot. Let His Word transform the way you think.
Apostle L.R.Gooden Jr.
