TOO LITTLE THOUGHT For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he May instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
[1 CORINTHIANS 2:16]
Some people assume worry is the result of too much thinking. But in reality it’s the result of too little thinking in the right direction. When we were saved, we received a new mind or way of thinking. Now our human thought patterns are injected with divine and supernatural ones.
The apostle Paul said, “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace” (Rom. 8:5–6). Because of the Spirit of God in our lives, we think on a spiritual level, not a fleshly one.
Paul also said, “Of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30). Since God imparts His wisdom to us, we can think the deep thoughts of the eternal God.
