It Isn’t Easy to Think Like Jesus

Joyce Meyer (11)

No matter how you have thought in the past, you can renew your mind on purpose. In other words, if something comes into your mind that is not according to the Word of God and you know it’s going to poison your mind, just refuse to think it, and then think something positive on purpose.

Ephesians 4:23 says that we need to renew our minds and attitudes constantly. I can tell you that after thirty years of trying to do just that, I still have to discipline my mind to think correctly.

The enemy is always trying to get us to put ourselves down and criticize other people. We have to be very careful what we think about ourselves, what we think about others, and what we think about our future.

And just because our thoughts are on the inside of us where no one else can see them, doesn’t mean it’s okay to let negativity slide. Besides, God loves you too much to let you get away with that.

What Would Jesus Be Thinking Right Now?

The Bible says in 1 Corinthians 2:16 that we have the mind of Christ. Can you believe that? We actually have the ability to think like Jesus would think in every situation.

One of the things we must do is slow down. We need to slow down so we can discern things, following the leading of the Holy Spirit. Sometimes all that means is to take a moment to check your heart and ask yourself: Is this what Jesus would do? Is this what He would think? Is this the way He would respond to this situation?

Galatians 6:10 says, “Be mindful to be a blessing, especially to those of the household of faith [those who belong to God’s family with you, the believers].”

I want you to decide today that you’re going to start thinking in the spirit because the truth is, when your thoughts about your life, the people around you, and your future line up with God’s will, every promise He’s made to you is possible.
