Topic: God's Thoughts, My Thoughts [23/6/2016]
Text: Isaiah 55:8-9
God's thoughts and ways are of the highest quality. He is not man, and so cannot reason and act like man. The disparity that exist between the way God thinks and act to that of man, is summed up in our opening text. His thoughts and ways are far removed from man's just as the heaven is far removed from the earth. While God's thoughts and actions or ways are of the highest quality, man's thoughts and ways cannot be written home about. This is because God is supernatural, while man is so natural.
Yes, God's thoughts and ways are higher than man, but not for the saved, justified, called and glorified man. For us who are in Christ, our thoughts and ways are now like God's, higher than that of the world's. This is possible because we have the very mind of Christ (1 Corinthians 2:16). Hallelujah!!! Our thoughts and ways are of the highest quality and excellent just like God's. Truth is, our thoughts are God's own thoughts, because we are gods. Glory to God!!!
We can safely say like God: "for my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways...for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts" (Isaiah 55:8-9). Our thoughts and ways cannot be understood by men. They cannot relate with them because they are spiritually discern. It's not the place of the natural man to know how supernatural men like us think and act. They are mystery to them. That is why we are wonders to the world. We can only think and act the way God will, because we have the mind of Christ. Hallelujah!!!
Keep winning daily.
Thank You Lord for bringing me into Your class of excellence, giving me Your mind and causing me to think and act just like You. I am a wonder to my world, and I produce wonderful thoughts and act in the most excellent of ways because I have Your mind. I only produce God-like thoughts always, in Jesus name. Amen.
