1 Cor 2:16, “For, ‘Who can know the Lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?’ But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.”
What does it mean to have the mind of Christ? When one studies, he must focus on being transformed through the power of the Holy Spirit. When one meditates, he should look to be filled by the truths applied rather than just emptying himself. When one prays, he needs to pray with the realization that he is at the feet of God, ready for the power of the Almighty to change whatever events seem impossible. This is the mind of Christ. The mind that is aligned with God makes it about Him in all things. The mind that focuses on the King focuses on His Kingdom. The mind that eagerly awaits His work awaits His will to be done in His timing, His way, all for His glory.
When we as sinful, impatient humans feel that God didn’t do things the way we expected, we miss the point. A person with the mind of Christ shouldn’t concern himself with such petty things- these are the concerns of God. Ultimately, God will receive the glory, and we will be in awe when He works.
What are you concerned about today? Are you upset about your current place in life? Put on the mind of Christ, because God always knows better. Trust Him, walk with Him, and allow God to change your perspective!
