2 K INGS 6:24-25 (CEV) 24 Some time later, King Benhadad of Syria called his entire army together, then they marched to Samaria and attacked. 25 They kept up the attack until there was nothing to eat in the city. In fact, a donkey’s head cost about two pounds of silver, and a small bowl of pigeon droppings cost about two ounces of silver.
II K INGS 7:1-16
2 The chief officer there with the king replied, “I don’t believe it! Even if the Lord sent a rainstorm, it couldn’t produce that much grain by tomorrow.” “You will see it happen, but you won’t eat any of the food,” Elisha warned him
18 So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:18)
T HE E ARTH IS NOT FLAT
S CARCITY VS. A BUNDANCE M INDSET Scarcity mindset people see life with “limited” lenses. They believe that there is “only so much” to life to enjoy (one pie) and when they see someone else taking what they perceive as a large slice of it, they are convinced that that means less for them… (Zero- Sum Paradigm of Life)… How happy are you with other peoples’ success while you are still waiting? Do you find yourself pulling away when others have good news or demeaning the validity of others…? Do you get threaten, and find it difficult to share credit, recognition, power or profit with others…? (What about me?)
W HAT D O Y OU S EE O UT T HERE F OR Y OU ? Perception is the end result of your organizing identifying and interpreting the sensory information in an effort to understand your environment and form a “Mindset”.sensory Our “Mindsets” are based on our perception of things and must live with the consequences of that mindset… Measure twice……..Cut ONCE!
W HAT D O Y OU S EE ? “C ONFESSION ”
W HAT MAKES THE FUNDAMENTAL DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE HAVES AND THE HAVE - NOTS IS THE STRENGTH OF FOUR PARTICULAR BELIEFS : There is a suitable and sustainable “Market” for what God created me to be on the earth! My presence adds “value” to every place I have been assigned… I must learn to eliminate people, place, and activities that devalue me and develop value that I have. I must continue to communicate internally my value until others catch on to the revelation.
I DON ’ T B ELIEVE I N A BUNDANCE ! 2 The chief officer there with the king replied, “I don’t believe it! Even if the Lord sent a rainstorm, it couldn’t produce that much grain by tomorrow.” His temporary status shaped this man’s outlook to point where he was willing to openly confess “Things can’t change”.
