Thought for the day

"Why can't you hold on to all the great teaching that has been brought your way? Because it did not take root. "...if the root be holy, so are the branches" Romans 11:16

God-thinking teaches you how to make sure that the truths that you receive, no longer slip through your hands. God-thinking receives the truths from God into the root of your being and imbeds them at the center of your soul. The truths of God become who you are. They steer your actions, your desires, your faith and your belief.

How do you get a truth imbedded in your soul? Well, first let me tell you how not to get a truth of God imbedded in your soul.
  • Just be indifferent about it.
  • Just shine it on.
  • Don't respond to it.
  • Don't share it with others.
  • Don't practice it. It will go away.
When God speaks to you and tells you what He wants from you and what He sees would be good for you,  just let it roll off our back, you won't have to worry about it sticking with you. It will just go away.

Indifference is like a disease that causes root rot. Indifference is the silent killer of your faith. To those who are indifferent to the Word of God, little by little everything they learn, everything they touch, ends up mishandled. James 1:8 "A double minded man is unstable in all his ways."
