Let this mind be in you…

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus

Romans 12:1-2

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.

And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Having the mind of Christ involves studying His word, and actively gauging your thoughts. Do they line up with His word? There are times in life when things get tough, but remember, who gives you strength as a child of God. Don’t just look at the situation, but remember your Creator and His word.Turn to Him with your praise and your faith.

Your actions start with your thoughts, hence it is all the more important to seek His help. In seeking His word, you gain  more of an understanding for God, His desires and promises for you. Seek His voice, make yourself available to Him. When you seek after the Lord and His statutes, He will draw nigh to you and be an ever present help. There is no problem too big or too small! In the midst of seeking Him, you build your relationship with Him.

Proverbs 1:7

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.

As you seek the Lord with fear, ie. reverence and respect for who He is, He will reveal more of Himself and His ways. In life, there are times where we won’t understand, or know how to proceed. But, no matter the problem, you can turn to Him. In the midst of the trials, God wants to get the glory. See your trials as your future testimony.

As you seek the Lord with a willingness and obedience to His word, you can trust Him and watch Him move in your life.
