If you were at the market and there were 7 beautifully voluptuous pineapples waiting to be purchased, and one scrawny one…which one would you choose? The answer seems obvious, but so often we settle for much less than we should.
What if someone told you that you couldn’t have any of the 7 and that the small one was the only one for you? Would you automatically believe them or would you fight for the best?
What if that person was you?
Do you settle for less than your potential? Are your own thoughts convincing you that you don’t qualify or deserve the best of something? If so, it’s time to renew your mind! That’s where the battle is!
The good news is, it’s also the very place where the battle can end. It’s as simple as that. Thoughts like, “I can’t have this” or I can’t do this” are not for those who have inherited the Kingdom of God.
We are heirs and if heirs, then victors.. just as He is. You CAN have a health-filled life and live in abundance. You CAN take off the weight that’s kept you feeling like the small pineapple among the strong and healthy ones.
Step out into what God has for you by beginning with the renewal of your mind.
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–His good, pleasing and perfect will” (Romans 12:2 NIV).
