There is a reason why the Father wants us to take every thought captive. Because every action is rooted in the thought that produced it.
Your thoughts are either going to make you or they are going to break you. They are going to advance you or they are going to retard your growth in the Spirit. Wrong thinking, therefore, makes a way for negative behavior.
There is only one thought to have in any situation, and that is the one that Jesus is having about it.
When we are learning to walk with God, we are submitting ourselves to the way that He thinks. We are being invited into the way that He perceives any situation to be from His own heart, and His own affection, and His own intentionality. Better yet, we are being invited to see things this way, so that we can receive an upgrade.
Every circumstance you have is an opportunity for you to think brilliantly about God, about yourself, about the situation you are in.
The mind of Christ is the most profound, most dynamic, most incredible, amazing way of thinking ever. He sees things that you couldn’t imagine by yourself.
Regardless of what kind of situation you find yourself in today, meditate and take action on this one brilliant thing:
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
