Thought for the day

"God-thinking believes - God is God, Savior, Master, King, Sovereign, Lord of everything. If you are looking for a relationship with God:
  • Where you can manipulate Him to give you only what you want.
  • Where you can do as you please, even if it is in direct conflict with God's will.
  • Where no commitment is needed.
  • Where you are in control.
  • Where you say "not thy will, but my will be done."
You are not going to like God-thinking. God-thinking is for those who have come to the place where they can say without a doubt that they have been doing it their way long enough - And found it most inadequate, ineffectual, powerless, impotent, unsuccessful, fruitless and un-fulfilling.

God-thinking is for those who want a better life than that. For those who want:
  • God's wisdom
  • God's knowledge
  • God's understanding
  • God's faith
  • God's experiences
  • God's mind.
Our new mantra should be "more of God and less of me."

  1. Love the post. This is what gets most people I talk to. They want to know God, but on their own terms. They don't like hearing that that won't work. God bless you brother.
