Cultivating a Winning Mindset

We often hear all the scriptures and Biblical colloquialisms about being victorious, more than a conqueror, a true warrior, and the list continues. All Truth, might I add.


But have you ever thought - nope, that doesn't apply to me. Have you witnessed the pomp and circumstance in other people's lives but just cannot see it ever happening for yourself? Or you questioned when it will be your winning season.


Cue Jekalyn Carr's song - You will win!


I've been there too! I have been in a place of becoming sick and tired of waiting to reach the finish line victoriously. I questioned what victory looked like for me, when it would happen, and even fell victim to the traps of comparison and envy while admiring other people's come up.


Embracing the {potential of a} winning season is even the more difficult while battling chronic illnesses and other pains. That's a whole additional mental hurdle.


If I knew God had more for me. If I knew He was the Almighty who wants His children to win, then that meant blessings and breakthroughs were my portion.


My posture shifted. It had to. I began speaking with my mouth and heart what I believed God to do in my life, and I began operating and flowing in that belief. It's a process. But God is so deserving!


Moses doubted his ability; but was victorious!

David was overlooked; but was victorious!

Joseph was sold by his brothers; but was victorious!

Esther was an orphan; but was victorious!

Jeremiah was young and inexperienced; but was victorious!


We mustn't get discouraged by what our journey looks like to us! If God is in it, it will be a victory!


I shared this post on Instagram this week. My best friend and I continuously affirm what God is doing, in the waiting and in the flowing, with a simple a very declaration: "It's time."


It's time is a profession of faith and belief in God's goodness. Despite our circumstances, we know that our God is greater, and His promises for our lives will indeed come to pass.


Not only has the 'It's Time' statement applied to what God can, is, and has done, but it also speaks to our boldness, confidence, and power in Christ Jesus.


Because our God is bigger than our circumstances, we have the authority to victoriously trample the enemy's wicked plans!


The opposite of a winning mindset can show up in our lives, looking like fear, limited & poverty mindsets, worry, feelings of inadequacy, lack, anger, anxiety, spiritual paralysis, and so much more.


Q: What are some of your struggles in this area?

Q: How can I walk alongside you?


Below are some Biblical promises and practical ways to help cultivate a winning mindset – in Christ Jesus!


God's Promises for:


  1. Abundance: "I will satisfy the priests with abundance, and my people will be filled with my bounty," declares the Lord." Jeremiah 31:14 NIV

  2. Assurance: "God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?" Numbers 23:19 NIV

  3. Courage: One night the Lord said to Paul in a vision, "Don't be afraid. Continue speaking. Don't be silent. I'm with you and no one who attacks you will harm you, for I have many people in this city." Acts of the Apostles 18:9-10 CEB

  4. Faith: "Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God's glory." Romans 5:2 NLT

  5. Success: "Be strong and very courageous. Be careful to obey all the instructions Moses gave you. Do not deviate from them, turning either to the right or to the left. Then you will be successful in everything you do." Joshua 1:7 NLT


Practical ways to cultivate a winning mindset:


  1. Don't discount what God is doing right here and now. This season you're in is playing a major role in your journey to winning!

  2. Surround yourself with people who will keep you encouraged and will war against limiting mindsets and anything outside of the plans and will of God for your life.

  3. Give all that you are and all that you desire over to God, and watch Him do a work in and through you.

  4. Meditate on the Word and the above scriptures for daily reminders and motivation.



Blessings,
