Wisdom Is Seeking Dominion Of Mind!
Chaplain Nelson Colon
As we hopefully learn from our mistakes during our journey in life
we can’t help but acquire WISDOM.
We seek and hopefully learn to take dominion over our minds
as not to repeat the same mistakes over and over again.
The definition of insanity is just that…doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. So, how do we really take control over our minds and break this same old insane vicious cycle? We have to do something NEW!
The Bible teaches that,
“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of WISDOM…” – Proverbs 9:10
We first have to learn to fear God in order to attain the Wisdom that comes solely from Him. Revering God enough to accept Him to rule over our lives as LORD, choosing to accept His sovereignty, learning to trust His control over our minds,
The Word of God personalizes Wisdom throughout Proverbs Chapter 8:
Verse12 – “I, Wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion.”
Verses 17 & 18 – “I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.
With me are riches and honor, enduring wealth and prosperity.”
Verse 21 – “…bestowing wealth on those who love me and making their treasuries full.”
Seek God first and foremost, then seek His Wisdom and purpose for your life, that your life may be full indeed…
full of His treasuries!
“This Is The Day!”
“This is the day the Lord has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”- Psalm 118:24
Some days the road seems too long and the climb too steep.
Max Lucado describes them as days when “Hope is Hindenberged by crisis. You never leave the hospital bed or wheelchair. You wake up in the same prison cell, the cemetery dirt is still fresh, the dismissal letter still folded in your pocket, the other side of the bed still empty. ‘This is the day’ includes divorce days, final-exam days, surgery days, tax days, sending-your-firstborn-off-to-college days. God made this day. He knows the details of each wrenching moment. He isn’t on holiday. He still holds the conductor’s baton, sits in the cockpit, and occupies the universe’s only throne. “We will rejoice and be glad in it!” Oops, there’s another word we’d like to edit: in. Perhaps we could swap it for after? Or through, or over. ‘I’ll rejoice when this day ends!’ Paul rejoiced in prison. David wrote psalms in the wilderness; Paul and Silas sang in jail; the Hebrew children remained resolute in the fiery furnace; John saw Heaven in his exile, and Jesus prayed in the garden of pain. You no longer have yesterday. It slipped away as you slept. You don’t yet have tomorrow. You can’t spend its money, celebrate its achievements or resolve its riddles. Days are bite-sized portions of life: 84,000 heartbeats, 1,440 minutes, a rotation of the earth, a sunrise and sunset, a gift of 24 unlived, unexplored hours. And if you can stack one good day on another, you’ll link together a good life.
‘This is the day’, live in it.”

“Something may happen today that shocks you…
Don’t worry about it!
God anticipated it. Remember, satan is merely an ex-employee of Heaven. God knows him quite well. He fired him.
Get alone today and just soak in the presence of God…
fear will die and courage will flourish.”
“Be still, and know that I AM GOD!” – Psalm 46:10

Focus On The Benefits Of Endurance
Every battle is for a reason…every battle is for a season.
Don’t forget it…ENDURE! When you are tired, exhausted and discouraged…ENDURE. Endurance is rewarded. Always!
It is actually the only thing that will be rewarded in eternity.
“…But he that endureth to the end shall be saved.” – Matthew 10:22

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the churches…” – Revelation 2:7a
“Beloved, do not hinder the flow of my cleansing tide as I wash away all of the debris from your soul and spirit. Let go and trust Me to do all that is necessary at this time to truly bring you higher spiritually.
Release the baggage of the past so that you can arise in new hope, purity and power to embrace all that I have prepared you for.” -says The LORD!
“Ask and I will show you ways to overcome the problems you face. However, in order to truly receive this wisdom you will have to rise above your feelings of oppression and sense of being a victim. Come up in the realm of the Spirit, and establish yourself in the belief that I am with you to bring you through every situation…
I see you…I know you, and I understand you! I AM your help in times of trouble. Nothing is too difficult for me, and I will bring you through one step at a time. ” -says The LORD.
“I AM giving you, My people, opportunities to redeem the times of disappointment, heartache, hardship, loss of health, loss of vitality, and loss of prosperity. Turn your eyes upon me now and BELIEVE;
I will lift you up and allow you to redeem those things that have passed you by.
Some of you have lost your joy, and some of you have lost your peace. Some of you have lost your way in the darkness of the world. But you can now, by faith, get back that which has eluded you and once again live in the power of My kingdom, reinstated with full rights of what I have promised you. All that is required now is that you RISE UP, BELIEVE, and EMBRACE what I AM speaking to you right now…to retrieve ALL that which was lost.” -says the LORD!
“ARISE and RUN the race that I have set before you…
for I AM for you and I will indeed lead you into all the goodness that I have prepared for you. I will restore you and bring you to a higher spiritual level…
Will you abide in the glory of this time? What holds you back? What keeps you from running? Do NOT allow the enemy to hinder this present work. As you come to me all things shall be according to My Word. You are My chosen generation, My Bride. RECEIVE all that which I Am giving!”
“I speak to those who once had a holy fire burning in you. Your love for me burned white-hot in your heart, but the enemy has brought one disaster after another for you to deal with, and the seed of my Word has been all but but choked out because of worldly cares and your struggle to just survive.
Yet in the depth of your heart there is still a desire and a longing to re-establish the spiritual connection with Me.
I AM here and I love you! I see and know and understand your plight, and you have not gone so far away that you cannot return.
Make the effort and come to me again,”
says The LORD,
“and I will receive you!”
