To understand God clearly, we must have an understanding of how He thinks and what He thinks about. That’s extremely difficult, given that His thoughts are higher than ours. But, we can get on the same mind wavelength. And, best of all, God wishes us to do this AND will help us make the transition daily. It all starts with learning about Him and what His thoughts are, rather than our own.
1. In our Bible study, do we pause and try to imagine how God would explain His word to us?
2. If we “sense” God’s wisdom being given to us in those times, are we open to actually receiving it willingly, without fighting Him, if it goes against what we “believe” is wisdom?
Challenge: Each day, even as we read scripture and pray, let us open our minds not merely to the wisdom of God, but also to His voice before, during, and after we read His word. This is the real transformation (changing) of our minds. We need His help to think as He does, which helps us to become what He wishes us to become: more like Him.
