There are three major components to a mindset wired for miracles. We must adjust our mindset into the flow of His grace so that we can follow the consistent and dependable example of Christ to do the works that He did, and greater!
Be Ruled By The Spirit
Logic and reason only take their proper place when the mind is submitted to the Spirit. You must not be ruled by your head. All life comes through the spirit, not through the head.
The Bible says that if we receive life by the spirit, we must be deliberate about walking by the Spirit (Gal. 5:25). When you commune with God in spirit, you receive from His ever-increasing, life-giving flow of grace. Grace is power to cooperate with God in order to receive “all things pertaining to life and godliness.” (2Pe. 1:3)
Live with a mindset that refuses anything less that what Jesus paid for. The working of miracles requires a determination to boldly submit to the leading of the Spirit and act in confidence that His grace empowers you to do what Jesus did (Act. 10:38, Mat. 8:16). Determination means that you refuse to accept anything short of what Jesus would receive. It’s an attitude that says, “everything MUST bow before Him.”
Live From The Victory Of Jesus
You must be relentless. You must not be ruled by failure. You must never give up, never quit, never back down. As you learn to walk in the Spirit, you will find that God never backs down and He never fails.
You must learn to enforce the finished work of Jesus instead of contending for a victory that is already won. You don’t have to fight the devil, you only need to radiate the confidence that Jesus has. He is in you, and He has already defeated everything opposed to life and godliness.
Never fight to break out of failure — fight from the victory of Jesus. It is our privilege to enforce His triumphant rule.
Realize Circumstances Are Opportunities
You are here to light up the darkness. You must not be disheartened by the worst of circumstances. James says to count it all joy when you are faced with trials, difficulties, and temptations (Jam. 1:2). Every circumstance is an opportunity to see the victory of Jesus Christ put on display.
God has allowed the circumstances of your life because you can only walk in the footsteps of Christ as you triumph over the work of the enemy around you. If you will move forward boldly, God will take advantage of every attack of the enemy as a means to empower you and to train you to live in dominion over your circumstances.
Every circumstance in your life is an opportunity to release the miracle power of God. Every situation is a custom-designed opportunity for you to rise to the top if you will look for the leading of the Spirit and operate from the victory of Jesus.
