(Have The Mindset Of The Righteous)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Luke 1:16-17 NIV “He will bring back many of the people of Israel to the Lord their God. And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous—to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
◀ LET’S TALK
I’d like you to mark the phrase “the wisdom of the righteous” in the verse quoted above. The righteous have a certain kind of wisdom. Now, what does “wisdom” here mean? The Greek word, from which “wisdom” in this context is derived, is “Phronesis”; it means a mindset: a fixed mental attitude or a disposition that predetermines a person’s responses to situations, and his interpretations of those situations.
Having this type of mental attitude influences your actions under any given situation. It’s a programming of your mind to reason, respond, interpret situations and behave in a certain way, usually, the most excellent way! Jesus had this mindset: one time He went up a mountain to pray, and when He was done, it was late at night and there was no boat with which to go to the other side. He didn’t panic or start praying, “O, God, please help me now.” No! He just stepped out on the water and walked on it as though it were dry ground. He didn’t think of sinking, because He had a fixed mental attitude!
To Him, there wasn’t a difference between the sea and dry ground; nothing was going to stop Him from getting to the other side of the shore. He had a mindset that had no sense of fear or impossibilities. God expects us, His children, to function with this mindset, which is garnered from His Word. It will help you form the mindset of a victor and champion; one who’s more than a conqueror and an undying success.
THAT ONE PLACE! 🤔

All we need to experience is that one place & atmosphere that somehow calms everything…

Romans 12:2; Philippians 2:5
Dear Father, your Word causes me to have the right mindset— the mindset of the righteous—such that my responses to circumstances and situations are from the standpoint of victory! Thank you so much for your wisdom that’s working in me now to function with the dominion of the Spirit, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
