TOPIC: PRODUCTIVITY BY MENTALITY
SCRIPTURE: “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life” Proverbs 4:23(KJV)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A dormant mind equals a dormant life; a non-strategic mind equals a non-productive life.
There is a connection between mentality and productivity; there is a link between how you think and your results in life. The truth is,”the stronger your mentality the heavier your productivity. Do not just let your hands work, let your mind work ahead of your hands. Nobody will mind the man who does not use his mind. The reason why a mad man is not productive is because he has lost his mind. It is not possible for you to be productive if your mind is functionless. A dormant mind equals a dormant life; a non-strategic mind equals a non-productive life.
To be productive, you need to be strategic. It is the synergy of mentality and activity that guarantees productivity. Activity without mentality is an exercise in futility. This is why you see some people working so hard, yet they see little or no result.
There are some employees with zero mentality or initiative; each time you ask them, ‘have you done this and that?’ Their responses would always be, ‘No sir, or okay, I remember now sir.’ That is a liability existence.
But today, I prophesy to you, your mind must work productively. As you maximize your mind you shall see greater results in life, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS”: A dormant mind equals a dormant life; a non-strategic mind equals a non-productive life.
1. Deliberately make strategic thinking a part of your daily TO-DO list.
2. Determine to consciously apply your mind to your task and whatever you do.

THEME: THE MEEK.
Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
READ: Psalm 37:11
But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
The word “meek”, within the context of our memory verse is best described as strength under control. To be meek in this sense then means to have power, yet decide not to use it just for the greater good. A meek fellow is one that the world would easily call a fool or mumu in my local parlance. A meek fellow is one whose toe you can step on yet still have him apologize. Matthew 11:29
“Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”
From the above passage, we see that the yoke of Jesus Christ is one of meekness. You cannot claim to be a true Christian without being meek. If someone slaps you and you retaliate, check your Christianity. If someone offends you and because of that, you decided not to relate with the fellow again or withdraw some benefits from him, check your salvation.
Hard as it is to be meek in this generation, we must embody it in our lifestyle. The good thing is that meekness has immense benefits attached to it. The first benefit that meek people are the ones who will inherit the earth (Matthew 5:5). No matter how much you cheat them now, they are coming back to be your landlord. Secondly, God fights for the meek. The meek may look foolish because he has refused to fight for himself, but God is watching. A classic example is Moses. God fought for him, so much so that he was the one begging God to have mercy on his enemies (Numbers 12:1-13). Thirdly, the meek receives divine guidance from God (Psalm 25:9).
I know it may be difficult, especially with people taking you for granted, but don’t stop being meek. Soon, you will be ruling over those taking you for granted. If you stop being, meek now, you would lose all the benefits of your meekness just like Moses, who did not reach the promised land because of one episode of anger.
God fights for the meek.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Genesis 12-15

HYMN 7: GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS.
1. Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.
Great is thy faithfulness!
Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see:
all I have needed thy hand hath provided–
Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!
2. Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.
3. Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide,
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

BE CHRIST-IN-ME CONSCIOUS.
THURSDAY, JANUARY 16TH.
…For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people (2 Corinthians 6:16 NKJV).
The real essence of Christianity is the fact that Christ literally lives in you by the Holy Spirit. That’s the reason Jesus came, to make fellowship and oneness with God possible. Through that fellowship, we were given eternal life—the life and nature of God. Therefore, you’re by no means an ordinary person. You’re full of God; full of His love, His grace and His wisdom.
This has to become a reality in your spirit; otherwise, you won’t be living the true Christian life. You have to be Christ-in-me conscious. I’m referring to a consciousness about life where all you know is Christ; everything you see is Christ. The Bible says Christ is your life (Colossians 3:4). Christ is everything. Functioning with this mindset will literally transport you to the realm where you have no consciousness of need, failure or fear; you’re on top and in victory every day, every hour, every minute and every second, because you carry God in you! You and God are the eternal winning team. Hallelujah!
But because many aren’t “Christ-in-me” minded, they struggle through life, “looking” for God; “going” to Him, and reaching out to Him for help. Whereas, the Bible says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world” (1 John 4:4). Everything and anything you could ever need is inside the greater One that lives in you. What you need is to become conscious of His indwelling presence and the wisdom He pilots you with for success and greatness.
Don’t ask Him for wisdom; He’s your wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). Don’t ask Him for help; He’s your Help and your Helper. Don’t ask Him for strength; He’s your strength. Don’t go anywhere without the consciousness that you’re a God-carrying vessel. You’ll be amazed at the sudden transformation: the grace, divine aura, influence and power that you’ll exude. Why? In the spiritual realm, the first principle is knowledge; the second is consciousness, and the third is speaking; voicing. That’s the reason this knowledge is coming to you today, for you to have the consciousness that you carry God in you, and then declare accordingly.
I’m not ordinary, for the Greater One lives in my spirit, soul and body! I’m full of God! I’m strong, sound, full of His love, wisdom and divine essence. My life is full of grace. Hallelujah!
1 Corinthians 3:16 (KJV)
Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and [that] the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Colossians 1:26-27 (KJV)
26 [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
27 To whom God would make known what [is] the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
