1. Must allow Spirit to controll thought process.

And now, behold, bound by the Spirit. Acts 20:22

We take captive every thought, make it obedient to Christ. 2 Corinthians 10:5

Don’t be drunk with wine.  Instead, let your mind be filled with the Holy Spirit, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among yourselves, and making music to the Lord in your hearts. Ephesians 5:18

Feed: Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4

Free: Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about Holy. Romans 8:5

Focus: We do this by keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus, the champion,  who endured the cross, Hebrews 12:2

David: Thou are with me, I fear no evil, Job: I know my Redeemer lives.

Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

2. Must have a consciousness of your spiritual purpose .

But my life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling wonderful grace of God. Acts 20:24

But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that My name might be proclaimed in all the earth. Exodus 9:16


I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb. Before you were born I set you apart and appointed you as my prophet to the nations.” Jeremiah 1:

From one man he made all the nations, and He marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands. Acts 17:26

Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. 1 Corinthians 7:17

The chief official assigned to Daniel,( God is judge)  the name Belteshazzar( god protect his life); Daniel 1:7

3.  Anchor your mind with Hope.

Now I commit you to God of hope and to the word of His grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified. Acts 20:32

We have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure. It enters the inner sanctuary behind the curtain, where our forerunner, Jesus, has entered . Hebrews 6:19,20

Though he slay me, yet will I hope in him; Job 13:15.

Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God. Psalm 42:11

For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 2 Timothy 1:79

4.  Discover the gift of blessing others.

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35

But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. Hebrews 13:16

John replied, “If you have two shirts, give one to the poor. If you have food, share it with those who are hungry.” John 3:11

Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you. Matthew 6:24
