He placed within our protective skulls, before our first breath and fearful cry, the ability to input, store and access vast amounts of information. The miraculous mind is an integral part of who and what we are. Education plays a part, but does not determine intellect, wisdom, discernment or faith.
Thinking is continual, waking moments at dawn, as day becomes night, and through the subconscious dreams of a restless mind. The Lord gives each the freedom to choose what we will dwell upon; thoughts come and go, but we personally determine what we will focus on and believe.
Prayer is worshipful thinking, praising God with thankful minds and hearts, calling on him to bless his children, and our wayward world. We confess our sins, cast on him our cares, request specific needs, and wait with expectancy.
God transforms lives; thinking becomes communication, fostering communion with our loving Father. Through scriptures, his Holy Spirit reminds me of the necessity to dwell on his faithfulness.
“Think of the mighty deeds he did for us, his chosen ones – descendants of God’s servant Abraham, and of Jacob. Remember how he destroyed our enemies. He is the Lord our God. His goodness is seen everywhere throughout the land. Though a thousand generations pass he never forgets his promise, his covenant with Abraham and Isaac, and confirmed with Jacob (Psalms 105:5-10a The Book/ Living Bible).”
Keep thinking about how much he loves you; access his word and ask him to give you the gift of recall. Diligently journal his many times of deliverance and faithfulness. They will serve as reminders during times of trial and doubt. Future descendants will be touched through reading each jot and tittle. (Matthew 5:18)
