Foundation thinking

  1. 1. (opening, initial, first, introductory)The basis of something such as theory or an idea.Introduction: I am desiring to share with you the revealed knowledge thatI’ve received from the Word of God. Which is written in the book of Genesis.Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was uponthe face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of thewaters.Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.Gen 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the lightfrom the darkness.You see God had already planned this event in his mind before thefoundations of the earth. He is Omni-present – very present; Omni-science –all knowing; and Omni-power – all powerful. So he has predestinedeverything. He is universal all in one place at the same time because he isSpirit.
  2. 2. We also see in John.John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, andthe Word was God. John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thingmade that was made.John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darknesscomprehended it not.We see in the Word of God, that Jesus was in the mind of God to redeemus from the curse of sin and redeem us to everlasting life through JesusChrist. This is why it is so important to have the mind of Christ. He is thefullness of the Godhead bodily and we are complete in him.John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and webeheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full ofgrace and truth.John 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he ofwhom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he wasbefore me.John 1:16 And of his fullness have all we received, and grace for grace.John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came byJesus Christ.
  3. 3. We can see from the Word of God why it is so important to thinkfoundationally because we can get a right perspective on who we arein Jesus and the rich inheritance that we can have as children of theKing. The King is the master over everything, we can see this fromthe beginning in Genesis, all things were made by him. In order tohave successful abundantly alive thoughts that produce positivethings; we must stay connected to Jesus Christ, who is the true vine.He is the lamb of God and in the Word of God, it’s revealed to us thatthe Lamb (meaning Jesus) was slain before the foundations of theWorld. Rev. 13:8. Which means this was already done in the mind ofthe God before the World was even created. He is our foundation.1Co 3:10 According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as awise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeththereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.1Co 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, whichis Jesus Christ.
  4. 4. Therefore in order to be abundant, blessed, creative, delivered, earnest,foundational, glorified, holy, important, Jesus, kingdom, Loving, majestic, new,prosperous, royal successful, terrific, unusual, victorious, wealthy,xenial (hospitality) and zealous, we must have the mind of Christ. He is all ofthe above and he will reveal to us how to live a life of abundance in expressionof all of these things. You know, however, because thoughts are things andwith the mind of Christ we can think positively in all of these areas.Jesus gave us a parabolic message when he talked about building on a surefoundation and we should in our thoughts, plan to have that foundation.Luk 6:47 Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, Iwill shew you to whom he is like:Luk 6:48 He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid thefoundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehementlyupon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.Luk 6:49 But he that heareth, and doeth not, is like a man that without afoundation built an house upon the earth; against which the stream did beatvehemently, and immediately it fell; and the ruin of that house was great.
  5. 5. In conclusion of the whole matter, let’s think foundational andthink in the mind of Christ. Present our bodies living sacrifices,holy and acceptable unto God which is our reasonable servicesby staying connected unto the Lord Jesus Christ, who is thetrue vine. It states in the Word, John 15:7 If ye abide in me, andmy words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall bedone unto you.We must abide in Jesus Christ, who is the true vine. (Read all ofJohn 15) And as we abide in him, having his thoughts we canbe successful, have resurrected positive thoughts and bevictorious in every area. Remember as a man thinketh in hisheart, so is he and if Jesus Christ is living in your heart. You areChrist’s and Christ is God.And as Jesus is, so are you in this world. Therefore thinkfoundational with the mind of Christ and your light will continueto shine with the love of Christ. Now this is right thinking.
