The working definition of Proactive Structural Change is the deliberate process of creating new and different internal thoughts, feelings and actions, and or external conditions, circumstances and environments, designed to improve results based on specific desires.

In other words, we first decide what we want. We look to be, do or have more in our lives. It can be money, career, relationships, or even a shiny new bicycle. Once we decide on the object of our desire, we begin the process of creating change in our life to become the person who is ready to receive the desired object.

What do we need to change? The answer is, everything we need to in order to make what we want a reality. Sometimes we need to change our thoughts, feelings or actions. We can’t get what we want by being the person we are right now. If that were the case, we would already have the thing. So something must change inside of us.

Sometimes, we do make the necessary internal changes. We change the thoughts we have; or we change our beliefs and create desire and faith; maybe we start doing the things necessary to bring about the desired want; and sometimes that might not be enough. Externally we may need to move to another geographic area. We might need to get rid of negative people and associate with different, positive people. We might need to quit a job that is holding us back.

There are all sorts of things that need to change to bring about the desired result. Many people will never know what needs to be changed because they never take the time learn what needs to be changed. As a result, they never experience all the wonderful abundance that the world has to offer.

This learning process is a very personal endeavor. It is different for everyone. Even if I tried to follow someone else’s example, to obtain a similar result as they did, I would need to change different things about myself.

Remember Your Victories

Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph…”
(2 Corinthians 2:14, NKJV)
When you think about your past, what events do you remember? What memories do you allow to play over and over in your mind? In the Old Testament, they had what they called memorial stones. These were used to remind the people about the good things God did in their lives — their victories.

Today, we need to remind ourselves to focus on our victories, too. Sure, we’ve all had setbacks, but when you meditate on your disappointments and failures, it only drains you of valuable energy. It steals your confidence and joy. But when you focus on your victories, it builds your strength and confidence. It feeds your faith. It gives you a reason to give God praise.

I encourage you today to get into the habit of focusing on your victories. Remember, every good and perfect gift comes from Him. As you praise and thank Him for His favor and victory in your life, He’ll pour out His blessing on you. He’ll open up supernatural doors for you to move forward in strength to fulfill the dreams and desires He has placed in your heart!

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, casting all your anxiety upon Him, because He cares for you.

Psalm 19:14

Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart Be acceptable in Thy sight, O LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
