Is Your Future Clear?


 

I would like to talk about your future. What is it that God has called you to do? What are the things that you would like to do? What car would you like to drive? Where would you like to live?

What I am trying to get to is this, is your future clear? Do you have a vivid picture of what you want to do and where you want to travel and what car you want to drive and so on?

You need to have a clear picture because you gravitate towards the strongest picture that is in your mind! And the fact is this, you have a picture. The questions you then need to ask yourself is,

–          Is the picture negative or positive?

–          Is the picture that you hold someone else’s?

We have a responsibility in the actualization of our future. If our picture is not clear we have a responsibility to make it clear. If you are running with other people’s dreams then you have a responsibility to cry out to God to give YOU desires and dreams. It is possible!

I have something I would like to make very clear. When it comes to destiny and dreams God won’t show you everything all at once. He will show a little at a time. I honestly don’t think we could handle it if God had to show us everything He has planned for us. We wouldn’t believe it and we would run away from it!!!!

So what I am saying is, in the things God has shown you, make those things clear. In the desires you have make them clear for example, if you want a car what color will it be, what model is it and so on.

Familiarize yourself with your future. Make it so clear that you get to a point where you can taste it!!!

When your future is that clear then you are in the right place.

Stuttering- Eliminate the “grasshoppers”.


I have already spoken about getting the right picture about yourself. Especially if you stutter. We always move towards the strongest picture in our minds. That’s a fact. So if your picture is one of people making fun of you and of you stuttering then that is what you gravitate towards. Change the negative picture at all costs. If change is to come then you need to eliminate the grasshoppers! I won’t lie about the work. It’s not easy. It requires you to be committed to the process. You will need to also deal with the negative beliefs that you have about stuttering. Some people believe that there is no cure for stuttering. How wrong they are. I am testimony that you can stop stuttering. It is possible.
Someone in regard to beliefs said that, it’s not a money or a weight problem that we have but a belief problem. For some of us we have a big belief problem. We need to examine our beliefs because if they are negative they drastically limit our potential and our progress. Lets get back to getting rid of the “grasshoppers”. You might be wondering what i mean by that. I got that statement after reading Numbers. There is a very interesting story in chapter thirteen. Let me give you a brief summary of the story. The Israelites have finally reached the promise land. But before they enter they scout out the promise land. They select twelve spies who are supposed to scout out the land and return with a report. Sure enough they go and bring back an evil report. Well ten of the twelve bring an evil report while two of the twelve bring back a good report. Anyway the ten spies are telling the Israelites what they have seen. So this is where i would like to pick up the story.

Numbers 13:33- There we saw the Nephilim [or giants], the sons of Anak, who come from the giants; and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers and so we were in their sight.

This is the essence of “grasshopper” thinking. How do you think when everything is going well? It’s pretty ok to think correctly when things are smooth but what happens when the challenges come? What happens when people make fun of you and ridicule you? What happens to the way you think in that situation?
I was seeing progress as i was applying all i am teaching you now. The one area i was really struggling in was when people would say something bad about the way i stuttered. My thoughts would go awol. They would go really crazy. But i got that in check as i stopped bringing myself down.
Look at the last part of that verse. “we were in our sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight”.
When the ememy came we see how they really saw themselves. That is what trials and challenges do, they make it very clear how we see ourselves.
When the trials and challenges come you need to hold on to the right picture. Don’t let challenges that you face change how you see yourself. You need to fight to keep the right picture. Eliminate the “grasshoppers” at all costs.

The Israelites paid a heavy price because they didn’t hold on to the right picture. Because they listened to the ten spies negative report instead of Joshua and Caleb’s positive report they lost the promise land! So close yet so far. They lost their promise because they focused on the wrong thing.
Just something else to note: watch who you are allowing to shape the way you see. Choosing the right people will determine whether you succeed or fail in changing the way you see yourself. So with all that, i encourage you to eliminate the grasshoppers. Hold on to the positive picture dispite the challenges that come your way. Remember that it’s a fight to hold on to the right picture.
I really believe that you can stop stuttering. Change those negative beliefs. Create the new picture. See yourself as talking fluently.
And that is what it means to eliminate the grasshoppers!

How to stop stuttering-What do you see. Part 2


In this second part i am concluding what i spoke about in my previous post. What do you see? I hope you can see the importance of changing the way you see. I hope you have taken a look at yourself and asked yourself some hard questions. This question is for everyone and not just a selected few.

We need to learn to see what we want happen in our lives. But it doesn’t just stop there. There is work that needs to be done. You have a part to play in the story of your life. There has been a lot of false teachings about how you just need to visualise what you want and it will happen. “Just visualise what you want happen and it will happen, they say”.
Please understand that it does not stop there. You have a part to play in your success. Its you that is responsible for your life. As God leads you He wants you to be responsible. He wants you to trust in Him and then act in faith. That negative picture in your mind is not going to change by itself.
You need to play your part by renewing your mind with the Word. Deliberately set high goals for yourself. If you want to be a pilot go for it. If you want to be a lawyer you can do it. If you desire to walk in fluency you can. God is with you. Dare to dream crazy big dreams! Don’t be afraid to dream big.
It’s imperative that your picture is positive. It’s important that your picture is so big that it scares you because,
You gravitate towards the strongest picture in your mind.
It has been proven that as humans we are drawn to the strongest picture in our minds. For example, a man who has been told he is stupid and will never amount to anything will stay in that place until he changes how he sees himself.
What is the strongest picture in your mind? Is stuttering stronger than fluency? If so, that needs to be changed. Is failure stronger than success? Is sickness stronger than health? Is impurity stronger than purity? All these negative mindsets need to be changed. You cannot afford to have them. They will be detrimental to your growth as a person. Ask God to show you the strong negative pictures that you gravitate towards.
Once He does, ask Him to help you change them.

I hope that helped. You are destined for great things. Open your eyes and see all that God has for you because He has so much in store. There are a lot more principles that i need to share with you that i know once you apply will help you tremendously.
Stay blessed.
