God thinking or Stinkin’ Thinkin’?


On awakening let us think about the twenty-four hours ahead. We consider our plans for the day. Before we begin, we ask God to direct our thinking, especially asking that it be divorced from self-pity, dishonest or self-seeking motives. Under these conditions we can employ our mental faculties with assurance, for after all God gave us brains to use. Our thought-life  will be placed on a much higher plane when our thinking is cleared of wrong motives.

“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.  For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts. 

 Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT

 

Father God, thank you for this wonderful day that you have made.  I will rejoice and be glad.  Father I ask you to direct my thinking today.  Open my eyes to your plan for my life and I thank you that what you have planned is far better than anything I could think up on my own.  Show me your will today that I may be everything you’re calling me to be.  In Jesus Name, Amen
