“For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ. 1 Corinthians 2:16
One evening my son came to me feeling frustrated because his tablet was not working. I then called on his younger brother and said, “Go take a look at your brother’s tablet. You have my technology mind, and you should be able to figure out what’s wrong with it.” As soon as I spoke these words, I heard the Lord say, “Exactly. You should be able to do what I have instructed you to do because you have My mind.” When God gives us a command, whether spoken or written, we are not limited by our own finite minds and human ability to carry it out. As born again believers, we have received the mind of Christ. We have received a new nature that empowers us to love like Him, submit to the Father like Him, respond like Him, and endure to the end like Him.
Prayer: Father, thank you for giving me insight and clarity into what it means to have the mind of Christ. I pray you will deepen my understanding of your truth. Help me to love like you, to respond like you, to submit to your will and endure like you. Teach me how to operate with the mind of Christ that I have received. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
