CONDITIONED TO LOSE…
There was a story about an eagle whose egg hatched in the midst of chickens. Though it grew up to understand that eagles are very special birds, but because it possessed a chicken mentality – it never flew beyond the capacity of a chicken.
The eagle was born to win, but it was conditioned to lose. As Christians, we've been born into a winning family; but Satan has conditioned us to lose. And as long as our thoughts are framed around satan's living conditions, we'd never soar as an eagle.
An eagle does not look up to the sky, rather, it looks down to the ground to see what is happening. Whatever is happening on the ground does not affect an eagle, because it soars far above the ground. Anything is free to happen on the ground, but the things that happen on the ground are not free to affect an eagle unless it permits it.
The bible says we're seated far above principalities and powers. That also means that Satan is on the ground, while we are in the skies; and Satan can only torment us when we come to the ground.
The time has come for believers to renew their minds by the word of God, just as an eagle renews its wings by the sun. We may be born to win, but without the word of God, we're helpless.
Let me conclude with this; the word of God is the wing of a christian life. If you ever want to lift above those worldly circumstances, then engage the word. May God give us understanding!
God bless you, I love you, and don't forget to share!
