Hey!! What’s on your mind today?

The power of the mind is great, fierce, and intelligent beyond our wildest imagination. Plans of good and evil are formed in that portion of our body, and it depends on who has control of it as to what you actually do, or things you can do! 

I have seen an artist take a brush or even a knife and put oil on a canvas in a manner that became a person, or a scene from nature. They can make it so real that it looks more like a picture than a painting. That is the talent that amazes me most. It comes from a place in their mind that is talented to do that. 

I know people who are so kind they never suspect anyone of anything evil, some call that person naive’, then there are those who are suspicious and mean spirited, these attitudes reflect the way they are inside of themselves.

What is in your mind? 

Do you have the mind of Christ?

Ask yourself: Do I see the beauty of a holy life as Jesus saw it? 

Do I see lost people through His eyes? 

Do I understand the eternal purpose of God with the same conviction that Jesus had?

The Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 2:14-16 The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God’s Spirit is doing, and can’t be judged by unspiritual critics.

Isaiah’s question, “Is there anyone around who knows God’s Spirit, anyone who knows what he is doing?” has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ’s Spirit.

Can you accept that you have His mind? 

Seems impossible, doesn’t it?

We have the mind of Christ because we have the Holy Spirit in us. Since we are new creatures in Christ, our habit of mental activity needs to be like that of Christ.

Is that possible today? There are so many voices around us, speaking into our ears; we don’t even realize it sometimes.

Do you ever catch yourself humming the tune of a commercial? Did you intentionally memorize it, or did it ‘leak in’ from the un-noticed drone of the TV? I have heard my children quote dialog along with a movie they have, obviously, watched more than once, while I couldn’t help them learn English Lit for a test, or learn a passage of scripture! 

Proverbs 29:11 A fool vents all his feelings, but a wise man holds them back.

Isaiah 26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.

The choice is yours, choose to keep your mind renewed by reading His Word and keeping a positive attitude, or be petty, peevish and small minded, which will not win you any friends!          

   Choose to have the mind of Christ!

  1. Have had a rather ‘odd’ day of thoughts, today… I thought a lot about my Mom, as I spent hours trying to change some of her accounts and Utility Services into my name… and I thought about several “political”/”social” questions, and why so many make LIFE Affecting choices without ever learning, or even thinking, about the complex effects of the decisions, nor even to be sure they are getting the Truth about the matter.
    I also have ‘pondered’ quite a lot about how GOD Chooses which prayers to answer positively, and which ones get “Not this time” or even “Not Ever”…?? You Pray for something, and it happens… and other times, you Pray the same way, and with all of your Heart… and ‘nothing’ … Crickets, so to speak… just the sound of your voice, that seems to barely reach the ceiling.
    My mind can think on dozens of things at once, or hundreds of ideas, or ‘related’ thoughts about something, and many different ‘possibilities’ on a subject… whether it is “String Theory” or Quantum Physics… or thinking of the ‘experiences’ a young lady can be forced into as a “Sex Slave” separated from her Family and everything she ever knew before… and wonder how so many people can WASTE Billions of dollars, and put rolls of corrupt dollars in their pockets… and freely IGNORE the suffering… and even make care-less decisions that make it WORSE…?
    So… That is what has been on MY Mind, today… (-:

  2. Yes, we have a choice. We can choose to ask God to renew our minds daily & think on good things or we can be miserable, & dwell on all things negative.
