The Right Mind
by Jerry Streams
“Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.”
(Ezekiel 37: 4)
That is the Focal Scripture of Streams of Joy Devotional today.
When God wanted to bring the dry bones back to life, He told Ezekiel to prophesy. To prophesy is to speak God’s mind. So Ezekiel needed to set aside his own mind and embrace the mind of God. He needed a mind shift in order to connect to the possibilities God was bringing. God changed Ezekiel’s mind and did a new thing.
Friend, if you desire a new thing, tune your mind to be on the same frequency as God’s mind. See things the way God sees them; believe the things that God has spoken about; see possibilities where others see impossibilities; see opportunities where others see threats; enlarge your mind to receive what God is about to do. Let the mind of Christ be in you.
Lay aside everything in your mind that is contrary to what God can do; lay aside your small ideas and embrace the big things that God will do. Don’t let your mind reduce your picture of what God can do; don’t let your mind limit your belief in God.
You may be a mere mortal, but it’s time to think big and expect big things. You may yet be small, but God says, let your mind be bigger than where you are.
Ezekiel experienced a mind shift before the dry bones came back to life. You may not achieve big things until you change the way you think. Things may not change around you until you change your mind. The mighty miracles you desire may not happen until you begin to think like God and think less like a mere mortal.
Drop your mortal mind and ask God to plant His own mind in you. If you have a relationship with God, then the mind of Christ should necessarily be in you.
Pray With Me: Lord, plant Your mind in me, in Jesus’ name!
