Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- September 2, 2011
Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures. Luke 24:45
Therefore, make it a holy habit to daily huddle around Holy Scripture in prayer and meditation. As a result, His word becomes a lamp to your feet and a light to your path (Psalm 119:105). Keep a Bible at your desk so you can draw inspiration, before you go into an engaging meeting. Scripture is a solace for your soul, but you need the Spirit to guide you into its understanding and personal application.
“The mind governed by the flesh is death, but the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace” (Romans 8:6).
A closed mind to Christ is not giving Him a chance to be a friend, when all other friends do not understand your predicament. A life that marginalizes the Lord, is a life that misses out on being completed by their Creator. Be open to heaven’s original plan–and your baby steps of faith will reveal a plethora of possibilities. Like a child in a candy store, you become giddy at God’s gifts for you. So, do not shut out your Savior’s love–He longs to take you to beautiful places with Him.
Read the Bible for the purpose of your character conforming to Christ’s. Insights for others are helpful, but the first step is your individual life change. Perhaps, as a reminder, you need to write a Bible verse on an index card and place it next to the steering column in your car, because focus fosters change. Above all, ask Christ to open your mind to the wisdom of His Word.
The Bible says, “…you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise” (2 Timothy 3:15). Jesus opens your mind so you can be conformed to His character.
How can I open my heart and mind to Christ’s big plans for my life?
