God Thinking XXXIX - Have You Had Enough Of You Yet? 1

"Today, you and I have a great opportunity - To hear the Word of God and to respond to God’s invitation, by taking action on the truths that God reveals to you and in you this day.  

Please, don’t fight the Holy Spirit.  As God gently urges you to take God at His Word, make the decision to make some changes in the way you do some things, as it pleases God.   

God Thinking is about searching out the things of God above all things. 

It is about seeking the will of God in every aspect of oyur life. 

It is about abiding in Christ and being moved by the Holy Spirit to be a good steward of what God has given you.  

God Thinking takes nothing for granted, but in everything and in every way, God Thinking steers you to fulfill your calling, not only to accept the free gift of salvation, but also to receive and practice the mind of Christ.  

God Thinking compels you to follow the invitation of Jesus, “Come, follow Me”.  God Thinking tells you to yield to the leading of the Holy Spirit, to walk in the Spirit and not in the flesh.

God Thinking has a high and lofty view of God - one that believes God’s revelation of Himself.  It trust’s the Word of God and trust’s the principles that God established from the foundation of the world.   

God Thinking points you to hear God, believe Him, trust in His ways and then get on about doing the will of God.

But, not everybody practices the principles of living a godly life and being a good steward of what God has endowed you with.  

What happens when you as an individual, or as a group, or as a nation make up our own rules about how we should live our lives and how we steward over God’s creation - God takes a backseat, and given enough time, God will be pushed out all together.  

Once you do understand - once it is revealed to you that God established principles for living and principles for stewardship, that work - you look back wishing you had been doing life His way all along."
