Dr. Mike Okonkwo – Feed Your Mind With The Good News Of Christ

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me because He has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.” –Luke 4:18 ESV
Beloved, the gospel of Jesus Christ is the good news. Jesus tells us in the scripture above that the reason for His anointing is to proclaim the good news. Child of God, for too long, you have been feeding your mind with bad news; news of doom and wars. Yes, I understand that we live in very precarious times, but Jesus came to give us good news. It is high time you began to feed your mind and spirit with the good news of Christ. And what is that good news? You will make it! You will succeed! No weapon fashioned against you shall prosper! And many other precious promises in the Bible.
Feed on the gospel of Jesus Christ. Yes, I know it is important to listen to the news and to keep abreast of the happenings in the society. But your heart must be so fixed on the good news that even when you are watching the news, and the tales of dooms start, you can boldly declare to yourself that your case is different. When the news is saying recession, you declare to yourself that it is not your portion. ‘As for me and my household, there is a lifting.’ This is what it means to live by the Word of God.
Your situation may look so bleak that you can’t even see a way out of it. But the Bible tells us: “For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.”(2 Corinthians 4:6 KJV) Therefore, I call forth light out of every form of darkness in your life in the name of Jesus. You see, this is the reason God sent His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life. Our part is to believe the good news. His part is to bring the Word to pass.
