TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Willingness to work out your salvation is more than showing up and suiting up. You must take action beyond the physical. Agreeing with and aligning yourself with the Word is an ongoing action that coincides with God’s truth – not yours.
THE MIND OF CHRIST
You need to make one of the most important decisions of your life: are you going to let the mind of Christ be in your head, or are you going to allow the thinking of this world to lead your thoughts?
It is God’s desire that you submit how you think about things to the way God Almighty thinks about things. It is here that your reasoning becomes Holy Spirit led. That’s where you begin to have a mind that is full of life, pleasing to the Lord.
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
– Philippians 2:5
Come now, and let us reason together, saith the Lord:
– Isaiah 1:18
If you and I are reasoning together with the Lord, we are partnering with Him to not only think how He thinks, but act like He acts. When we do this, we reflect Jesus and that’s the whole point of being part of the family of God – to show a family resemblance!
The more you think like God, the more you will look and act like Him. Knowing He is love, light, good, righteous and pure, you and I should be begging every day to have the mind of Christ.
Well, good news! We don’t have to beg because heirs are part of the family, not beggars! All we have to do to have the mind of Christ is freeze out ungodly thoughts and replace them with thankfulness, praise, worship and anything admirable or good.
When you refuse to get a Christ-centered worldview, or get addicted to the thrill of anger, the high of being offended and the adrenaline rush that is rage, that’s when you partner with hell. That hell will be the only thing people see as your witness is crushed by wrong thinking, followed by wrong actions.
Hear me now: that’s not you!
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO PROCLAIM THAT YOU HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST. TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR THOUGHTS AND TURN ANY ANGER OR NEGATIVITY OVER TO THE LORD. LET HIM REPLACE IT WITH GOOD, BECAUSE GOOD OVERCOMES EVIL!
