Focus of Thought:
Our minds, our thought patterns, should include God.
We are intelligent! Our minds can do amazing things. With so much power held within our cranium, it is important that we stay cognizant of our minds.
The function of our mind relies on the basis of thought, and those thoughts release power to do incredible things within our lives. It is not only important that we think good thoughts, we must think God’s thoughts.
Expression of Thought:
When God says in Isaiah 55:8-9 “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”[AMPC], it reminds us that God’s thoughts are higher, than anything we could conceive. As God continues to say in Isaiah 55:10-11 we learn that his thoughts become his Word. “For as the rain and snow come down from the heavens, and return not there again, but water the earth and make it bring forth and sprout, that it may give seed to the sower and bread to the eater, So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it” [AMPC]. If we are the sower, and we want God’s seed (Word) to produce in our lives we must align our minds with the Word of God/His thoughts.
Thinking as God thinks is life changing. You will see things as God sees them. Life has a new meaning which is never controlled by the words of men or even yourself. Overall, it produces solutions and answers to life’s most difficult conquests.
“How can we practice having God’s thoughts?”
First, Study the Word of God. Get a great foundation of his promises in all areas of your life.
Second, Find the best method of applying God’s Word into your mind. This can take time, be patient. I am still learning myself.
