Chapter 11:
After Stirring Up Your Mind, What Next?
Lack of use causes decay, but active use leads to maturity. After your mind
is stirred up, the exercise of that mind is what will cause it to expand, to receive
and to produce in a higher dimension. The more you put your mind to use, the
greater tasks it is able to accomplish. Utilization of the mind is what extracts its  values.
But strong meat belongeth unto them that are of full age, even
those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern
both good and evil.
Hebrews 5:14
Maturity comes by reason of use through the exercise of the senses. It
comes as one learns to accept full responsibility for one’s life and puts his mind
to full use. It comes by reason of use not age; through the exercise of the senses
to discern correct choices in life. It is only the challenges of life that lead to the
development of that sound mind in you.
The aim of challenges is to get you developed. So escapees never mature.
They never grow. Take every challenge as a task that must be done then the
senses will be on the alert.
For the Lord’s portion is his people; Jacob is his inheritance. He
found him in a desert land, and in the waste howling wilderness; he
led him about, he instructed him, he kept him as the apple of his
As an eagle stirreth her nest, fluttereth over her young, spreadeth
abroad her wings, taketh them, beareth them on her wings: So the
Lord alone did lead him, and there was no strange god with him.
He made him ride on the high places of the earth, that he might eat
the increase of the fields; and he made him to suck honey out of the
rock, and oil out of the flinty rock.
Deuteronomy 32:9–13
The nation of Israel is God’s own chosen nation. She occupies a position of

honour and dignity in the world today. But, it was not always so. Before
attaining this position of maturity, the Lord had to expose her to challenges.
These helped in her development. You have a rich deposit on the inside of you.
Use what you have to get what you want. The ability to do this is wisdom. After
your mind has been stirred up, use it to bring about an enviable future for
I pray in the name of Jesus that you will begin to manifest the many–
sided wisdom of God from day to day. May you never get stuck in your walk
with God not knowing what next to do or how to go about it. I command your
profiting to begin to show forth now, and may wisdom bring about terrific
promotions in your life in the name of Jesus.
I declare today that WISDOM is my portion as a child of God. I
receive it now, because wisdom is justified of His children. According to
God’s word, wisdom will make my face to shine and I will never know
shame or reproach any more in Jesus’ mighty name. Amen.
