God Thinking XXIV - Prepare To Be Prepared 5

"You are body, mind and spirit and God wants you to prepare yourself in your mind:
God wants you to prepare your mind.

Your mind was designed to be used to communicate with God - (transmit) by prayer and supplication, and (receive) by revelation.

There’s two ways that every man, woman, teen and child can look at life, (in their mind).

1     What has God prepared for me?
2     What has God prepared me for?

God has certainly prepared for you more than you could ever imagine.  God has given and given and given.  He has saved you and sanctified you and blessed you and placed you.  He has delivered you and helped you, washed you and empowered you.  God has laid up for you a storehouse of blessings.  He is making you a mansion. 

On this side, God has given you everything you need for your mind to be stimulated and intrigued, stretched and filled.  And beyond your capability to comprehend is the vast and incomprehensible universe within an atom and innumerable universes outside of your own galaxy. 

God gave you your mind so you would find the answers to life’s puzzles.  So that you could be intrigued at the awesomeness of a flower, the complexity of a nuclear power plant, the simplicity of a kiss, the strangeness of a dream, the discovery of a truth - But the mind was made for a purpose, like the body was made for a purpose. 

The body was made to be the temple of the Holy Spirit, but the mind was made to hold the truths of God - the mind of Christ. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:” Philippians 2:5

Just like the ark of the covenant had within it the tablets of stone, you have within your temple the precious truths of God.
