Your Philosophy Is the Compass

“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.”

– John 16:13

Today, I would like to share with you a great ground rule that I have shared before. It’s a fact I believe, and I hope you do too: Your philosophy dictates the course of your life in every way. You can think of your philosophy as the map of your life. The map tells you where you’re going and how to get there. We all see the world through different lenses, and everyone has a unique way of viewing it. 

There are probably people you know who view the world through a different lens than you do. There are many people who walk through life with a philosophy of self-pity, blaming others, the government, or their boss. While others say, “I hope, I hope, I hope,” but nothing ever changes. Maybe it’s those words “I hope” that may keep you stuck. Your hope is that things will change, that your boss will be more generous, or that your nation will be better off under the next president. Yet very often no one says that when I change, things will change as well.   

Friend, that’s the answer and the philosophy I felt led to impart to our church and our Hour of Power family. To understand that life changes when you change, and you can change today! You are not limited in your ability to understand, learn, or say no to some things or yes to others. With the Holy Spirit’s help, you can choose today to become a new person and adopt a new philosophy.


Father, make me aware of the personal changes I can make to improve myself and bless those around me.


What steps are you taking to become a new person?

If you’re unable to attend your local church or need some additional weekly inspiration, be sure to tune into Hour of Power every Sunday morning at 11:00 a.m. PT on TBN or watch online at
