Powerdigms: Introduction

From the moment you wake up to the instant you fall asleep, your life is controlled by something unseen. They dictate your choices, your actions, and your responses. They determine your attitude, your perspective, and in time, your success.

These unseen things are your beliefs. They are your beliefs about yourself, the world, those around you, and even God Himself. They are the engine that drive your life.

Many of us are unaware of the ways our mindsets affect the way we live. We try to change behaviors we don’t like, but we fail to bring lasting change. Why? We don’t recognize that certain beliefs actually keep us in our prison of old behavior. Transformation comes by overhauling the engine of life–by renewing our minds so that our thoughts line up with God’s thoughts.

And it’s not without opposition. We live in a war zone, and the enemy is fighting for our life. He wants to claim our prize, and so we fight. But we do not fight with ordinary means. As Paul wrote, “We take every thought captive to obey Christ.” How do we fight? We fight by judging our thoughts–do they empower me to fulfill God’s call and manifest Christ to the world, or do they disempower me and cause me to cower? We destroy every mindset that is not from God.

We must embrace these life-changing mindsets. I call them “powerful paradigms,” or powerdigms, because they will empower us to fulfill the destiny and call that God has placed on our life. They must become more than an idea; they must become the very heart and soul of our lives.

As you go through your day, I challenge you to consider this: What are the beliefs that drive my actions? Are these beliefs positive beliefs? Ask the Holy Spirit to show you not only places of error, but the truth that He would have you believe.

For the King.
