THINK IN THE SPIRIT – Thursday June 29th 2017
Memorise: In all Thy Ways Acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:6
Read: Proverbs 3:5-6 (KJV)
3:5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
3:6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
Bible in one year: 1st Samuel 3-5, Lamentation 2:3-13, Hymn: Sing hymn 15
When there is an issue on ground and you present the issue to God, asking for His guidance or instruction on how to handle it, He will be pleased that you are giving Him His rightful place in your life. To what extent do you involve God in your personal and family affairs? Do you see Him as an intruder or as a partner? How often do you involve God in your thoughts and plans? If you really want Him to be a part of your thought life, then shun all evil thoughts. Load your mind with His word. Think often on God’s word and focus on Jesus. By doing these, it will become easy for you to think in the Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the only Person who can help you see things from God’s perspective. This is why 1st Corinthians 2:11 says,
“For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.”
When you yield your mind to Him, you will see yourself thinking more like Jesus, and what is important to God will gradually become important to you. When this continues, His likes will become your likes, and you will hate what He hates. There will be an alignment between what He wants and what you want. Start involving God in your thought process from today.
The extent to which you involve God in your personal or family affairs shows the extent of your trust in Him.Open Heavens Daily Devotional guide was written by Pastor E.A.
