God’s desire is for us to think at His level, so we can talk and act like Him. That’s why He gave us His Word as the material to renew our minds. A Christian who is yet to renew his mind with the Word will not live a victorious life here on earth. In fact, the Bible refers to such Christians as carnally minded. To be carnally minded is to be sense-ruled. It means to think, talk and act according to the dictates of the flesh, and contrary to the Word of God.
God’s thoughts transcend the sense realm; they are spiritual. The Apostle Paul, writing to the Church in Rome gave the importance of giving up your thoughts for His: “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”(Romans 12:2).
In the Old Testament, the children of Israel couldn’t experience God’s best because they couldn’t relate with Him from the perspective of faith. They were men and women of the senses; hence they didn’t know the ways of God—the faith lifestyle, though they were familiar with His acts. But over in the New Testament, we have the mind of Christ; therefore to experience increased glory God expects our thoughts to align with the provisions of His Word.
This month you must refuse to think defeat, poverty, sickness or fear; give up every thought of negativity. Think abundance, strength, victory, success, faith and the good-life only. Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Consciously practise this today and watch your life move from one level of glory to another. Hallelujah!
