God speaks through our thoughts

December 12, 2019

“You have an anointing…and you know all things.” 1Jn 2:20 NKJV

 

Have you ever held a conversation with someone in your mind? You took one side of the issue and then the other. So think about this: If you can have a conversation with yourself in your mind, don’t you think God can have a conversation with you in your mind too? The trouble is, our minds often prove to be unreliable because we’ve polluted them with so much junk; therefore, we doubt His ability to speak through our thoughts. Once God redeems you, He starts renewing your mind (See Ro 12:2). Paul writes, “Who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ” (1Co 2:16 NKJV). Did you get that? When God saves you, He starts thinking His thoughts through you. He speaks through many different channels—your mind is just one of them. The Bible says, “God…works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose” (Php 2:13 NIV). Note the phrase “to will and to act.” God will actually direct your will and create a desire in you to do the thing that pleases Him. And there’s persistence in His leading. When you have a desire to do something that keeps recurring, it may be God directing you. That’s why it’s crucial to monitor your mind and screen the thoughts you entertain. Jesus said, “You are already clean because of the word…I have spoken to you” (Jn 15:3 NKJV). Bathe your mind every day with God’s Word, and fine-tune your “receiver” to hear what He’s saying to you.
