Power of Positive Thinking by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Your success starts with your thought. Scientists analyzed the brain of Albert Einstein, a great physicist who formulated the theory of relativity, and found out that he made use of only 10% of his thinking capacity. This means that many people who feel they are thinking have actually made use of less than 1% of their brains. God created everyone with the ability to think.
Isaiah 1:18a – Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD…
God cannot call you to reason with Him if you are not at His level. You don’t reason with a dog; you can only reason with someone who can understand you. No matter how tough a situation might look, if you are willing to reason and obey what you will get, you will see the solution to that challenge. Many prefer to fast and pray than to think.
God did not make Albert Einstein better than He made you. One of the greatest secrets of Albert Einstein is that he learnt the value of accepting some thoughts and rejecting some thoughts. He took time to develop the ability of only allowing thoughts that will improve him to register in his mind.

Every habit and every act starts with a thought; if the thought is not stopped, the act cannot be stopped. If you want to be successful, accept the truth and reject the lies of the devil. Begin to develop your mind to be able to distinguish the truth from lies. Consciously from your mind, reject lies and develop yourself with the truth.
2Cor. 10:5 -Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Many are unproductive because they don’t think positively. It is creative thinking that provokes productivity that will enhance your success. The more you think, the more successful you will become. A poor man is poor because of his mindset according to the scripture below:
Prov. 19:15 – Slothfulness casteth into a deep sleep; and an idle soul shall suffer hunger.
A man that does not think will be hungry. An idle soul is simply a non-thinker; one who is not tasking his brain to make gain. So every poor man is a non-thinker. E.W Kenyon said, “Make your brain work, it will sweat but it will improve”.
Your life is shaped by your thoughts. Powerful thinkers get powerful results. To get an outstanding success, you must be a thinker who will be able to discern between truth and lies. Success is realized easily when you can think through that situation; the more you think through, the more you have breakthrough. Every time you sit down to task your brain, you are bound to have a gain.
Prov. 23:7a – For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…
To live a successful life, the state of your mind must be constantly checked to ensure you are not accepting what you are supposed to reject. Most people that feel they are thinking are actually thinking about the problems instead of the solution.
Prov. 27:17 -Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
Every time you meditate on the Word of God, you are actually rubbing your mind with God; and you cannot rub your mind with the Almighty God and not go far in life. If you think through, you will have breakthrough. If you want to be successful, be a thinker and while you are thinking, know what to reject and what to accept. Filter your thoughts; reject everything that is contrary to the word of God.
Bill Gates, with $200 in his pocket, became great through thinking. If you can think enough, what you have in your hand is enough to make you a multi-billionaire. You don’t need money to start an empire, you need a thinking mind to have an empire. Increase the capacity of your thinking and you will be rich overnight.
Therefore, enlarge your thinking capacity. Challenge your brain to produce and the world will soon hear about you in Jesus name –Amen!!!
God bless you.
