''Use your mind to your advantage,'' Pastor Chris Oyakilohme preaches

The mind is a powerful tool many persons underestimate. If properly harnessed, it can yield numerous benefits. These are the opinions of the Head Pastor of Believers Loveworld, also known as Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome. In his words, ‘the mind is like the rudder that directs a ship. For your spirit, the mind is very important if you turn your mind away from what it is supposed to be focusing on, your feeling will die.

In order to have a mind that is effective, you need to have your emotions balanced. That is the duty of the mind to balance your emotions. It is necessary that your mind is channeled to your purpose. The coordination of the forces of your spirit towards the path of your purpose is the duty of the mind. Hence, you have to program your mind to what you want you desire. 

Focus helps your mind to be effective

Do you have any plans you need to embark on? You need focus to keep them effective. Pastor Oyakhilome also buttressed his point by addressing people who embark on praying and fasting. According to the renowned cleric, you need focus for the prayers to be effective.

However, there are many persons who would distract themselves during this period. The essence of that fast has become defeated because your mind has been placed in many directions. Learn to discipline your mind. Discipline will help you to put your mind on track. It is not always easy to be disciplined. But if you put your mind to it, you can achieve it.
Your tongue can help your mind
After you have tried focus and you are still having some challenges, you can try another pattern. Do you know that your tongue is a very powerful tool that can help your mind to be effective? When your mind starts to wander, use your tongue to correct it. Speak to your mind constantly. Tell your mind what you want and watch it bow to you. 

Work on your emotions
For your mind to be effective, you have to work on your emotions. At times you may want something but your emotions may be pushing you to another direction. You have to work on that. Do not allow your emotions to override what you truly want. It is very necessary to put God in your plans. Work on your emotions. When you put it together, your spirit will also align to the path that you desire. Hence, your spirit is aligning with what God wants and you are propelled to do His work.
