the root of most failure

Wrong thinking is the root of most failure. Many have wrong thoughts about God, wrong thoughts about themselves and wrong thoughts about the circumstances.

Wrong thinking about God creates a foundation on which nothing can be built. If you think that God is in control, distant or harsh, those thoughts will impact your approach to life.

Wrong thinking about yourself breeds fear, anxiety and weakness, or pride and arrogance. Either way, your confidence is not in Christ but in your flesh.

Wrong thinking about the circumstances stems from lack of knowledge, lack of preparation, unrealistic expectations or a lack of vision that would stimulate faith. The circumstances have become your lord.

Renew your concept of God. He is the Father, Healer, Provider and Protector. Renew your concept of yourself. You are a new creation in Christ. You were created to overcome, not to roll over. See the circumstances in the light of God’s purpose for your life. Circumstances are temporal. God’s love for you and His Word are eternal. Be a doer of the Word and the circumstances will eventually bow the knee to your authority in Christ.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Romans 12:2
-Barry Bennett
