But the Lord was with Joseph, and he [though a slave] was a successful and prosperous man… (Genesis 39:2, AMP)
The Lord was with Joseph and he was successful. Isn’t the same Lord with you? So why aren’t you successful? It must be your part that is missing. Joseph saw his success (in his dreams). He believed it, meditated on it, thought about it and he even spoke about it. This convinced his mind he was well able to attain it, it was within his reach. You have seen it. What are you doing about it? You wipe it off your mind because you think it was just a thought. You don’t believe it, you don’t meditate on it and your mind and your entire being is really convinced you really don’t have the strength and what it takes to get there.
Everything that you can ever be in your life begins in your mind. Your life is actually a replay of what has been playing in your mind. Your mind gives you a foretaste of the life ahead. If your mind has been fed with a life of success, surely that success shall be made manifest in your life. Your thoughts can limit you or they can expand you.
There are no limits in what you are capable of doing except for those that you create for yourself.
Instil in your heart what you want to be and meditate upon these things. The Bible says as a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Make it a point that whatever you meditate and think about is what you will be happy about when it manifests in your life. Positive thinking produces positive living, negative thinking alike. Positive thinking makes the effectors of your thoughts able to ‘look’ beyond your barriers and prepares them to push through any obstructions. Negative thinking on the other hand makes the effectors weary and deprives them of the ability to make things happen. Whatever you can think about, the same you can become no matter how impossible it looks on your physical eyes. There is a principle that God introduced when He told Abram that as far as his eyes could see, that land would be his. With you, as far as your thoughts can reach your being can also reach.
It is important to lay a firm foundation of where you want to go in life. Setting your perceptions straight is the first step towards attaining your success. God desires to see you succeed and prosper in all that you do. Align your thoughts with His desire; for your well being and for the advancement of the Kingdom. You have a blood bought right to success that is out of this world and no one can take it from you except your own thoughts that can be your own hindrance. If you can see it, it means you have the ability to attain it. It may take some time but you will eventually get there if you don’t lose focus.
