The Power of Biblical ENTHUSIASM
Dr. Kluane Spake http://kluane.org
It's easy to become discouraged these days. Especially during this time of troubled economy, we really need to FOCUS on becoming enthused.
After all, this is your life .. and you and I need to break through past the daily news, beyond what everyone is saying, and far away from all the old religious barriers that speak limitation and opposition. We fail because of false expectations. We fail because of negative thinking. We fail because others try to take away our hope.
The Bible calls the brain the HEART. Scripture says, "As a man thinks in his heart, so it will be." Therefore, in life, you need to learn how to utilize the greatest success and prosperity tool of all time: the brain. You need to properly engage your brain (mind, heart) and demand right thinking and correct responses.
It's time to become enthused by God's ongoing promises. The word "enthusiasm" comes from the Greek “en theos,” which means becoming God‐inspired. Imagine that! Enthused people embrace life with joy and exuberance. They know that God will INSPIRE them with the best in life.
The number one definition in Webster's Dictionary for enthusiasm is: "Belief in special revelations of the Holy Spirit."
My friend, enthusiasm is inspiring - it brings "special revelations!" Let this definition change your reality.
Special revelation will change your future. Your imagination can be guided by the Holy Spirit. We must renew our MIND (Rom. 12) with the thoughts that will create a prosperous life. This continual process is known by scientists as imprinting or modeling. Whatever you call it, start now and just do it!
Influencing your mind to think upon certain spiritual truths can create a better future for you. Soooo.... please, get enthused about that!
It means that we decide WHAT needs to be changed in our outlook, our expectations, and our assumptions.
Decide what will go into your personal mind‐computer. Enthusiasm is adventurous and dares to reach out past previous restrictions.
"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your object. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm" - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Right now, take control of the caliber of information that you allow to enter into your sub‐conscious mind.
Be positive and ENTHUSED about your future.
Build new definitions of what you expect.
Imagine positive and prosperous results.
“All achievements, whether in the business, intellectual, or spiritual world, are the result of definitely directed thought, are governed by the same law and are of the same method. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain, or rise with your thoughts, your Vision, your Ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.” Og Mandino
Once you become ENTHUSED, everything changes. Your revelation expands and your invigorated countenance becomes contagious. You sense new inspiration and motivation. New insights and ideas. You suddenly have greater focus, direction, intuition, and charisma.
Passion, confidence, fervor and energy attracts people and incredible opportunities to come to you. That's the way it works. Those who have, get. Enthusiasm makes you a God inspired "success magnet."
Enthusiasm ignites your imagination.
The Lord asked Jeremiah, "What do you SEE?" And that is true with us! If we can SEE the possibility, then we can do it. My favorite quote is by Helen Keller, “The greatest tragedy in life is people who have sight but no vision.”
What is your vision? Can you see it? Well, get excited and act like it has already happened! Think about how it would be, smell, feel, taste. Enthusiasm is the energy produced as a result of positive expectation. It's just that easy. The more you think eagerly, ardently, expectantly, enthusiastically, the greater your results.
This is part of the dominion mandate that God gave to humanity from the beginning. Enthusiasm bonds you to a greater power of the Lord. You become deeply centered in the KNOWING that Biblical principles have a certainty of reality.
Enthusiasm builds your faith. It grows expectation.
Just imagine your soul realm prospering! Isn't it exciting to think about not being depressed? Not being sad all the time? Your mind is a factory that creates Godly response upon this earth. We pray, "Thy Kingdom Come - Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven!"
What is heaven on earth for you? Imagine those best results for you.
Why are heavens gates made from pearl and the streets made of gold?
Look into the promises of heaven and pull those things into the NOW (on earth). See success and not failure. Confess and rehearse limitless possibilities. Write new vision.
Don't allow other people to limit your beliefs any longer.
Norman Vincent Peal said, "If you have zest and enthusiasm you attract zest and enthusiasm. Life does give back in kind."
Walt Disney said, “If you can dream it, you can do it.” What are your dreams? What talents did God give you to be successful? The first Christians lived out of their dreams and hopes.
What you are enthused about can only expand.
What you renew your mind to, is your reality. Paul told us to renew our mind - that was not a suggestion, but a command.
Scriptures about enthusiasm:
· He (Apollos) had been taught the way of the Lord and talked to others with great enthusiasm and accuracy about Jesus (Acts 18:25).
· Since you excel in so many ways--you have so much faith, such gifted speakers, such knowledge, such enthusiasm, and such love for us*--now I want you to excel also in this gracious ministry of giving ( 2 Cor.8:7).
· I am thankful to God that he has given Titus the same enthusiasm for you that I have. (2 Cor. 8:16).
· For I know how eager you are to help, and I have been boasting to our friends in Macedonia that you Christians in Greece* were ready to send an offering a year ago. In fact, it was your enthusiasm that stirred up many of them to begin helping (2 Cor. 9:2).
· Work with enthusiasm, as though you were working for the Lord rather than for people (Eph. 6:7).
