"We have the mind of Christ" (1 Cor. 2:16).

Some people are baffled by everything about God. You'll often hear them say something like this: "Yes, amen, but you know that's the way the Bible says it will be. After all, God's ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts."

Yes, the Bible says that, but if that's all it says, we can never hope to be anything except stupid. But praise God, the Bible doesn't stop there. According to Isaiah 55:11, God says, "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."

In other words, you don't have to stay below God's thoughts. Your thoughts can come up to His level. How? Through His Word. God's thoughts are His Word, so if you'll think His Word, you'll think His thoughts.

"But wait a minute. To think God's supernatural thoughts, you'd have to have a 'supernatural mind,' wouldn't you?"

Yes—and if you're a believer, you already have one. You have the mind of Christ (1 Cor. 2:16). I read that for years, but I didn't really understand it until I translated the word Christ. It means "the Anointed One."

So to have the mind of Christ is to have a mind that is under the influence of the Anointing of God. A mind that's not under the influence of God is in opposition to Him. It always goes contrary to His ways. And since God's ways are right, then a mind without the anointing will think wrong.

But hang on...just because you've made Jesus Lord doesn't mean you'll automatically think God's thoughts. You only begin thinking God's thoughts when you begin to fill your mind and heart with the Word of God and make yourself subject to His Anointing.

Romans 12:2 calls that process "the renewing of your mind." It also says that process will transform you. Why does it have such a dramatic effect? Because when you change your mind, you change your choices—and that changes everything.

So learn to stir up the anointing on the inside of you. Subject your mind to it. Allow the anointing to transform the way you think. Allow it to change your mind!

Speak the Word: "I have the mind of the Anointed One" (1 Corinthians 2:16).
