Can you picture yourself free of your drug of choice (i.e. repeated sinful behavior) and in the presence of Jesus experiencing the “good stuff?”
When it came to entering the Promised Land only Joshua and Caleb could imagine the grapes they would eat, the homes they would live in, and the figs they would pick and devour while resting in the care of their great and awesome God. Keep in mind this is not mere positive thinking on their part. God said He would give them this land (Num. 14:5-9). They simply allowed their minds to explore and believe what God was saying. In other words, they took God at His word and believed it! I call this positive believing. God said it and that was good enough for them.
As children of God, we are asked to be positive believers in Ephesians 3:20, “Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
Are you focusing on the challenges of life or what could be if you let God help you deal with those challenges? Do you trust in your way of thinking or in truths at the point of the lies given by One who can “do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine”? If you want to experience victory, will you allow yourself to believe what God is saying He can do?
What truths about what your God can do are you focusing on in the midst of the challenges you’re facing? Can you see yourself tasting the fruit of being closer to and more like Jesus? It’s time to taste the sweetness of victory in your life. Begin to imagine all that Jesus can do in and through you.
