God Is A Spirit, And He Thinks Differently
TO THE BIBLE: Isaiah 55:9 NIV
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
This Scripture clearly reveals to us that God doesn’t think like people do. He doesn’t see the way men see or hear like they hear. He thinks differently. His Word or instructions to you may not make natural sense, but that’s because He doesn’t relate from the natural realm or standpoint.
Take, for example, the account of Genesis 26. At a time of severe famine in Gerar, God instructed Isaac to remain where he was instead of fleeing to Egypt like everyone else around him. Genesis 26:12-14 records that “…Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous; for he had possessions of flocks and possessions of herds and a great number of servants. So the Philistines envied him.” Isaac prospered, made progress and became very great in a time of famine, just because he followed God’s instruction.
Maybe like Isaac, you’ve found yourself in a place where everything seems dry. God wants you to know that you can still prosper where you are. Or perhaps you’ve been battling with sickness in your body; His reasoning is that you’re the healed and not the sick (1 Peter 2:24). Accept this truth, and keep confessing your healing. Meditate on this truth, and, like Abraham, believe in the God who makes alive the dead, and start calling those things that are not as though they were (Romans 4:17). Let your reasoning be in sync with God’s way of thinking; there’re no impossibilities or limitations with God. That’s the same mindset He wants you to have today and always.
1 Corinthians 1:27-29; Isaiah 11:3
I have the mindset of the Word. I refuse to see limitations or impossibilities, for God’s Word has inspired faith in me to be possibility-conscious, and to reason like Him! I’m of quick understanding and I don’t judge by what I see nor reprove after the hearing of the ears.
