Welcome to enjoying everyday life with New York Times best selling author Joyce Meyer.
On today’s program, Joyce will be teaching from her series right and wrong mindsets.
Our thoughts can help take us where we’d like to go.
Keep us right where we are, or even take us somewhere we don’t want to go if we allow negative thoughts to control us.
Joyce likes to say, complain and remain, or praise and be raised We set ourselves up for victory when we have a thankful mindset.
Now here’s Joyce with today’s teaching.
Alright. Anybody ever any trouble with their mind. Nah. Nah. Nah.
Well, you know, right thinking can enable you and wrong thinking can disable you.
It’s amazing what you won’t do if you think you can’t.
I mentioned that my mom knew that my dad was abusing me when I was growing up, but she never did anything about it.
And 30 years after I left home, she finally found the courage to say something to me.
And she said, I’m sorry for what I let your dad do to you.
I didn’t think that I could face the scandal, and I didn’t think that I could take care of you and your brother.
So her thinking, her wrong thinking, her wrong mindset ruined many lives.
She could have just as easily said, I believe I can do this and taken a step of faith and trusted god, and things could have turned out differently for a lot of people.
Now things have turned out good for me.
I stuck with god and fought through a lot of things, but I had a brother 9 9 years younger than me who sadly ended his own life.
And things could have been different for him, but he never had the right kind of training growing up, and he got on drugs when he was seventeen.
And on alcohol and just never could get free from it.
So it’s very important that we realize how much our thoughts affect our actions, our attitudes, our moods.
They literally are the forerunner for everything that we do or everything that we don’t do.
Now this teaching is taken from the story of the Israelites, who the Bible plainly says in deuteronomy chapter 1 verse 2 that It it is only 11 days journey from Horeb by way of Mount Sierra to Kadesh Barnia on Canaan’s border yet Israel took 40 years to get there.
I just read the amplified and they’ve got the ESV up, but we kind of switched back and forth.
Why would somebody take 40 years trying to make an 11 day trip?
And if you feel like you’ve been going around the same mountain way too long, in verse 6 of that same chapter, god actually spoke through Moses and said, you’ve stayed long enough at this mountain.
And so I wanna start tonight by saying to some of you you’ve stayed long enough at the same place.
You’ve been feeling sorry for yourself way too long.
Even blaming somebody else way too long. You’ve been complaining way too long.
Come on. It’s time for some change.
And I want you to remember this.
God can’t change anything if we won’t change.
It’s useless to keep praying for god to change everything you’re not gonna be willing to do, or if I’m not gonna be willing to do whatever god asked me to do.
So I actually have 10 of these wrong mindsets, and I’m gonna try to turn them into the way that you should think rather than the way that you shouldn’t think.
And I hope you get through all 10 by the time I leave tomorrow afternoon, but if I don’t, we can always finish it on TV.
I wanna talk to you tonight about getting your mind off of the road behind you.
Letting go what light is behind and not basing your future on your past or or even on what’s going on in your life right now.
See, some of you are stuck. You’re just stuck.
You’ve been in the same place for so long going around and around the same mountain that you dug a rut, and there’s no way that you feel that you can get out of it.
But it’s time for you to let god take you out of that place to a brand new beginning in your life.
Amen? The Bible says that god called the Israelites out of Egypt to take them into the promised land.
I brought you out to take you in.
God has brought you out of something to take you into something better. But you know what?
You have to let go of the old in order to take hold of the new. Amen? Amen?
Sometimes we feel pulled in two different directions because god’s trying to pull us forward and we keep hanging on to what’s back here.
You always have to give up something to get something. Hey, man?
You almost always have to leave something to go somewhere.
But the thing about god that Well, it’s he knows what he’s doing, of course, but it’s it’s not too easy as he’ll call you out of something before he shows you what you’re going into.
And so there comes fear. Like he told Abraham, leave the place where you’re at.
And go to the place that I will show you. Are there any of you like that right now?
You’ve let go of one thing behind you and now you just feel like you’re just in total confusion and you don’t know what’s next or what you’re gonna do.
And, well, you know what? You don’t have to know because god knows.
And all he really wants to hear from you is I trust you.
Not why god why, but I trust you.
Now, our mind has a lot to do but how fast we make it from Egypt through the wilderness to the promised land.
I’m sure you’ve all heard of the promised land.
I don’t know about you, but after several years of being in church, I got so tired of hearing about the promises but never feeling like I actually possessed them.
I heard about freedom all the time, but I wasn’t free.
I heard that god wanted to bless me, but financially, we were just hand them out and paycheck to paycheck and I heard about all these things, and I believed them or I thought I did, but they never seem to happen in my life.
Anybody ever feel like that? You just k. Let me just be honest.
You get a little tired of the Rahra Rahra and, you know, it’s nice while you’re there, but when you go home, you still got the same mess, and you just you you wanna possess the promises.
You don’t wanna just hear somebody talk about it. You wanna possess it.
Well, the Israelite wanted to possess what god called the promised land, and it was a land that he said was flowing with milk and honey, which meant every good thing.
God wants us to have every good thing.
The Bible says, eye has not seen ear has not heard all the good things that god already has made ready, prepared, and stored up for those who love him.
But the interesting thing about the word possess that the Israelites didn’t understand, and I don’t think we understand it a lot the word possess actually means to disposes the current occupants.
So in other words, they had to be ready for war.
In order to take that land that god promised them because enemies of god were already living on that land.
Amen. And so the Bible says that god took them the long hard way through the desert instead of a a route that was much shorter and he did it on purpose because they were not ready yet for war.
And see, I’ve been getting real bothered in my spirit lately, and so I know that I’ve gotten do some preaching on this, not all tonight, but I’ll mention it.
You know, a lot of Christians aren’t ready for war.
They’re just Sometimes I feel like I’m in a cosmic battle between Satan and god, and they’re both trying to win And I’m here in the middle deciding who I’m gonna follow.
Am I gonna listen to the lies of Satan or am I gonna believe the promises of god and stand firm?
And go with him. You gotta disposes the current occupants before he can possess the promises of god.
And we gotta be ready for war.
So god took them the long hard way because they weren’t ready for that yet.
He knew that they were still too immature to really take a stand and not be moved by anything that they saw or felt and believe god.
And so they ended up out in the wilderness, whining, blaming, complaining, murmuring, grumbling.
And you’ll see when I get to the part on complaining that the word complain means to remain.
Complain and remain. Praise and be raised.
That’s my only special quote.
The more we complain, the more we stay, right where we’re at, And so they just wandered around out there for 40 years when it was an 11 day journey because they had wrong mindsets.
They had a wrong mental attitude. They didn’t know how to think right.
So before we get into the specifics of these different attitudes.
Let’s just talk for a minute about the mind.
Who who could stand in if I talked for a minute about the mind? Please do. Right?
Okay. Well, Proverbs 23 7 says that a man thinks in his heart so is he.
That’s a very interesting scripture.
Colossians 3 12 says if then you’ve been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above where Christ is seated at the right hand of god.
Set your mind on things that are above.
That means right things, not on the things that are upon the earth. Now let’s read it again.
Set your mind. And I really like what the amplified says. Set your mind and keep it set.
See. It’s easy to go on a diet on Sunday night after dinner.
But the problem starts by Tuesday when you wanna eat everything on the table and then eat the table.
Okay. I’m gonna tell you a secret.
You’re not gonna like this part, but here it comes anyway.
If you wanna have real victory, you’re gonna have to be willing to hurt a little bit.
And see, the Israelites didn’t wanna hurt, and we don’t wanna hurt.
So the devil gives us 9 different ways to get out of hurting.
And, you know, even if you just type complaining, you know, if you’re going through something and you just keep your mouth shut about it and you’re just talking to god about it, and not murmuring and complaining, it it’s hard.
It’s like there’s no relief valve for the pressure in our soul. But if we can just tell somebody
