Think With Me

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord” (Isaiah 55:8). How can we have God’s mind in each decision that we make during the day?

It is so important that the foundation or motivation for our decisions is pure. “A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit” (Matthew 7:18). If a person makes a choice out of human rationalization, even if it is from the good side of the tree of knowledge, it cannot bring forth the fruit of the Lord. It may produce human good, without the life of God, but it will be in vain. Every decision a believer makes should glorify God

One of the best ways to have God’s thought for our lives is by remembering that, “Yet not I, but Christ liveth in me” (Galatians 2:20a), and “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13). We have the authority through God’s Word to have the mind of Christ because we have received Him in our hearts. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:5). Through God’s Word we can have His thoughts. Our roots will be found in Christ, and we will know that our daily decisions will have godly motives and will glorify our Lord and Savior.

    Hi Pastor Schaller,
    I just wanted to thank you so much for the Israel trip. Chuck and I were so blessed by that trip and especially your presence and contribution. It was fun being part of your flock for a week, soaking in all your (and the other pastors’) wisdom and knowledge. What an amazing man of God you are, what an amazing group of believers that accompanied us on the trip and most of all, what an amazing God we serve!! God bless you and Lisa today, throughout the year, and until we see you again! Btw, I did listen to your son’s message re. the hand of God being on our life and it really blessed me!!
