Develop the Mind of the Spirit

Adapted from the resource Ending Your Day Right - by Joyce Meyer 1 MIN READ

As a young Christian I was always trying to figure out the “why” behind everything and planning excessively for what was ahead. But one day God required me to give it up. He showed me that reasoning is the opposite of trust.

The Bible tells us that the mind of the flesh is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit. It is being hostile to God and refusing to submit to His ways. But the mind of the Spirit is life and soul peace.

If you want to be free of trying to figure everything out, you can develop the mind of the Spirit by constantly renewing your mind with the Word. Little by little, the Word will wash away the wrong thinking and replace it with truth...follow that truth instead of your own ability to reason things out and you’ll have new life and peace.

Prayer of the Day: Father, help me to only trust You and never my own reasoning–as difficult as that sometimes is. Please renew my mind with Your Word and bring life and peace to my life, amen.
