Your mind is the greatest gift God has given you and it ought to be devoted entirely to Him. You should seek to be “bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ . . .” (2 Corinthians 10:5). This will be one of the greatest assets of your faith when a time of trial comes, because then your faith and the Spirit of God will work together.
When you have thoughts and ideas that are worthy of credit to God, learn to compare and associate them with all that happens in nature: the rising and the setting of the sun, the shining of the moon and the stars, and the changing of the seasons. You will begin to see that your thoughts are from God as well, and your mind will no longer be at the mercy of your impulsive thinking, but will always be used in service to God.
Is your mind stayed on God or is it starved? Starvation of the mind, caused by neglect, is one of the chief sources of weakness and exhaustion in a believer’s life. If you have never used your mind to place yourself before God, begin to do it now. You must turn your thoughts and your eyes away from idols (things craving your devotion) and look to God alone and be saved (Isaiah 45:22).
