The other day we talked about putting on the mind of Christ; that wise, peaceful, kind and loving mind. It sounds so good but it's not so smoothly accomplished. I don't know about you, but when a God thought tries to rise up in me, it kind of gets stuck and caught up sometimes in my "web of worry". Do you have one of those in your head? God says to tithe and you start telling him how you can’t afford it; God says He'll guide you through your crisis but you say it's too complicated; God says to leave something in His hands but you just can't let it go to Him. What that “mind struggle” means is you don't really trust God to do what He's promised. That web of worry is earthly, weak and born in sin… reject it.
Why don't you ask God to quiet down your own mind so you can think the God thoughts? Volunteer your own brain to be His servant and not the slave of the thoughts of the world, the flesh and the devil. The renewing of your mind in Him will transform you. Get in His presence frequently and let Him rewire you and reprogram your thinking. We're born with a broken "motherboard", as they say in the computer world. Let God fix it; then, and only then, shall you be able to test and see what God's will is, His good and perfect will (Romans 12:2). Endure the fire...it's producing pure gold!
