Gaining Victory in your Thoughts was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 17th of October 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
What goes on in our minds determines what goes on in our lives.
You won’t be able to go beyond the quality of your thoughts, and to gauge the quality of your thoughts simply listen to what you say.
What you permit in your thought realm you give access to in your life. Gaining victory in your thoughts is something you should strive to achieve.
God pays attention to your thoughts.
You are just one instruction away from solving the problem in your life.
Now Jericho was securely shut up because of the children of Israel; none went out, and none came in. And the LORD said to Joshua: “See! I have given Jericho into your hand, its king, and the mighty men of valor. You shall march around the city, all you men of war; you shall go all around the city once. This you shall do six days. And seven priests shall bear seven trumpets of rams’ horns before the ark. But the seventh day you shall march around the city seven times, and the priests shall blow the trumpets. It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.”Joshua 6:1-5 (NKJV)
You need the ark and the trumpet to surmount the walls before you
- When you face a problem that seems insurmountable, the first thing to do is to recede into the Presence of God
- The second thing to do is to praise
You get things done by holding onto it tenaciously – in prayer, in confession, in believing.
You must learn to cast down negative thoughts/imaginations, not embrace it. Gaining victory in your thoughts is something you should strive to achieve.
Don’t be lured into discussing your private life with mere acquaintances or any random person. When someone gossips another person to you, he/she is going to gossip about you to another person. If you mouth your issues all over the place, you will find it where you don’t want it.
