“Finally, my brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, if there be any praise, think on these things.”
In our reference text today, Paul is admonishing us to think on things that are true, think on things that are pure, think on things that are just, and think on things that are honest. What are you thinking about today? Maybe the reason your blessing is delaying is that you are not thinking right. You are expecting God to bless you, yet you have a poverty mindset. There are people sitting in the church with polluted minds; they just cannot celebrate anything good. Someone came to Potter’s City one day and said: “All these monies we are spending on projects could have been given to the poor”.
One day someone bought a very nice car and met a friend who told him that he could have bought a different car, and given the rest of the money to the poor. I like the response of the man, he said, “By buying this car, I am already feeding the poor because the one who services this car, and the one who fixes my tyres are all paid to cater for their families. Some of you are speaking evil because your thinking is not right, whenever you see good things, you cannot celebrate. Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are of good report, if there be any virtue, think positively.
Pray and ask God to deliver you from perverted thinking
The reason your blessing is delaying could be that you are not thinking right
