[TBC: Mind Science, whether Christian Science, Religious Science, the Secret, or the word faith movement, is active today. As Dave Hunt pointed out in the July 2007 issue of the newsletter, these things are in reality, “recycled Hinduism, shamanism, and New Age folly. One of many huge lies is its claim: ‘You create your own reality with your mind.’ This was the serpent's false promise to Eve-the promise of godhood (Gen:3:5). Embracing that delusion cost Eve and her descendants Eden's paradise-and would have barred mankind from heaven had not Christ died for the sins of the world. In the 6,000 years since Eden, the serpent's promise has not been fulfilled in even one person's life.” Consider the parallels in the following article from the October 20, 2009 issue of Charisma online.]
Take Possession of Your Land!
The first thing you must do in taking possession of your land--all God has prepared for you--is to take possession of your thoughts. There is a direct correlation between the quality of your thoughts and the quality of your life. What you think determines who you are, what you are, where you go, what you acquire, where you live, whom you love, where you work, what you accomplish, what you read and so on.
James Allen wrote in his timeless classic As a Man Thinketh, "All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts." If your life is going to change, you must think change. You are always only one thought away from changing your life. As Joel Osteen says, "You can live your best life now!"
Here's the principle: You will never have more or go further or accomplish greater things than your thoughts will allow you to. Therefore, you must create an opulent thinking environment in order to create an opulent life. Your life is a reflection of your most dominant thoughts and meditations. When you make it a practice to meditate on success, you will begin to live a successful life.
Use your thoughts as an architect uses a blueprint. Think about every detail. An architect thinks not only about the rooms in a house but also about the types of windows, sizes of closets, location of electrical outlets and so on. Nothing is too insignificant. Think big and think detailed!
