Keep Your Mind On Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Keep Your Mind On Him by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

For those who live according to the flesh
set their minds on the things of the flesh,
but those [who live] according to the
Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be
carnally minded [is] death, but to be
spiritually minded [is] life and peace
(Romans 8:5-6 NKJV).

To be carnally minded means to set your mind
on fleshly, worldly things. The Christian who
is carnally minded is governed or ruled by his
senses, emotions and the circumstances of life. The
Bible warns that this produces death, a separation from
the God-life.

On the other hand, the Christian who is spiritually
minded has his attention on the unseen realities of the
Kingdom through the Word of God. He lives by the
Word, and responds to issues and situations on the
basis of God’s Word.

Let me give you a simple example: when the man
who is carnally minded feels a headache, coupled with
fever, his senses tell him, “Now you’re sick; you may
have just caught the flu.” And because his focus is on
how he feels, he agrees and says, “I think I better see a
doctor.”

On the contrary, when the man who is spiritually
minded feels the same symptoms, he’s unperturbed,
because he knows he’s uninfectable. His attention is on
the Word, and according to the Word, divine health is
his nature in Christ. Therefore, he says, “I refuse to be
sick, because I have the life of God in me.”

The Bible lets us know that those who live by the
senses cannot please God (Romans 8:8); that’s because
they aren’t walking by faith, for without faith, it’s
impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6). Christianity
is a walk in faith. Faith is the lifestyle of the just, and
the basis for faith is the Word of God. Therefore, let the
Word of God dominate your thinking and control your
life.

Stay your mind on the Word and the Word
alone, and have a life of absolute peace with prosperity.
Isaiah 26:3 says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth
in thee.” The Hebrew word for “Peace” here is
“Shalom”—the rest of God, wherein is prosperity,
health, strength, etc. Hallelujah!

PRAYER
I refuse to be governed, controlled or ruled by the
physical senses; rather, I see, think, talk and live by
faith, and respond to issues and situations through
the Word. I live in the Word and walk in the full
consciousness of the spiritual Kingdom to which I
belong, enjoying the full provisions of the Gospel, in
Jesus’ Name. Amen.
