Good morning everyone! Thank you to those that are now following this blog; the idea that anyone would want to hear what I have to say on a daily basis really blows my mind. It is simply a testimony of God’s power and His love for us that He would use someone as wretched as me to help get His message across.
So I titled this Our Way of Thinking because I believe that this way must change; the way we think, how we think, and the process in which we do is the key to our walk with Jesus. I tried explaining this to my kids the other day and kind of got that “deer in the headlights” look but I think they get it and hopefully you will as well. See we all have a brain right? (Be careful how you answer that lol). Well, when we become believers in Christ and give our lives totally to Him, I believe that other than a normal bodily function, we need to stop using that brain to think and instead use the Holy Spirit. Look at the Scriptures, there are numerous ones throughout that discuss dying to self; that our old self is gone and instead it is Christ that lives within us. So, if our old self has died, then why would we continue to keep thinking with a part of our body that is sinful and in many respects “dead”? It’s real simple folks, we should stop thinking with our brains and start thinking with the Holy Spirit of Jesus Christ.
Most of you are probably totally confused by this and thinking “how do I stop thinking with my brain?” Well, the answer may be simpler than you think. As a disciple of Christ, He has given us this power through His Holy Spirit! We no longer have to live by the constraints of our mortal selves but instead let His Spirit totally and in all things lead us and control our lives. It is only then, I believe, that we can live the lives the God has called us to live while we are here on this earth. Just as we should not base our actions on how we feel, we should also not base those actions on how WE think. Pray today that God would fully take over your lives and give you a glimpse of what is to come; put aside that sinful piece of meat in your skull and give control to the One that resides inside of you just waiting for your permission to take over. Peace and love to all!
