I’m realizing more and more the need to build our thought, our consciousness, on a strong foundation. Jesus talked about having a house that is built on the rock and when the storms and winds came it couldn’t knock over that house. When our house is built on the sand it falls when the winds and rain come.
That house is our consciousness — our view of ourselves and others — and we want that built squarely on a solid foundation. For me, that foundation comes from the infinite, spiritual Truth that transcends our material senses but is the truth that God, good, is everpresent and we are God’s image and likeness. This is a spiritual fact. When we begin with this premise stated in Genesis 1 that God saw everything that was made as very good, we have the authority to denounce anything in our thought, our mental home, that is unlike God. Through spiritual power we have the ability to deny the supposed power of fear, limitation, lack, negativity of any kind, disease, bad predictions, etc.
We have to awaken to the authority that Christ gives us to deny and denounce any power unlike God. We can do this mentally and spiritually in our prayer closet. We can gain dominion, thought by thought, over believing and accepting things that aren’t from God, Spirit.
Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.*
So don’t allow evil/erroneous thinking to dictate your life or push you around! Kick it out! If it isn’t from God, then you don’t have to have it and it isn’t a power.
Turn that serpent into a staff, like Moses did, for you to lean on and to be part of that solid foundation for your journey Spiritward.
