Many people are saved and love God, but they do not know how to have an open ear for God. It is the secret of how to live and it determines how you think. Without thinking God's thoughts and letting them be established as the conviction of our mind, we lean to our own understanding. Because our thoughts do not correlate with God's, we are always trying to search out His understanding. No one has a right to search out what God does. God does not endorse our mind. Isaiah 15 states the case of our mind -it is ill. Our natural faculties are not within the realm of His life.
God will give us a channel to receive communication (1 Corinthians 2:16). Then, we can love and think in terms of God and reason in terms of divine logic. Be renewed in your mind that you are strengthened in definition from the mind of God. Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. First, we wait upon the Lord, upward, to have our strength renewed, inward, so we are able to walk, onward. We either get up in Adam and try to be good or get up in Christ knowing we are good in Him. Either we know we are conquerors, or we wait to be conquered by the world. As a man thinks, so is he. The thoughts of God will lead you in faith while the thoughts of man cause you to search for understanding, questioning the promise and the character of God.
