Every change in our life requires a change in our thinking. God regularly teaches us new ways to think, because we cannot act differently if we don’t think differently.
What would be considered a normal mind for a Christian? Remember, what is normal to the world is not acceptable for God’s children in most areas. For a believer, worry is not normal. Confusion is not normal.
Negative thinking is another type of thinking in which a Christian should not indulge. There are many other kinds of thinking that should be considered abnormal for a child of God.
The Lord has shown me that when we think hateful, mean, judgmental thoughts about people, not only can we injure them, but also judgmental, resentful, unforgiving thought patterns can cause us great harm.
We have an opportunity to think creative, loving thoughts about people and to pray positive, faith-filled prayers.
Use your thought life wisely. Think about other people the way Jesus would, and think about your circumstances in light of God, Who says, Behold, I am the Lord…; is there anything too hard for Me? (Jeremiah 32:27).
"Father, I ask You to teach me new ways to think. Help me to think creative, loving thoughts about others. In Jesus’ name, amen."
