My thought, your thoughts

The closer our walk, the more we shall be like Him, but this side of heaven, we must be content to know that we are being changed in incremental steps of glory.

My thoughts, your thoughts . . “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:8-9‬ ‭ESV‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬ . . I react pretty badly when someone says to me “I know what you’re thinking”, 95% of the time they haven’t got a clue what is going around in my mind. It’s also a phrase that we casually throw around when we are clumsily trying to support someone going through a hard time. Even if we have experienced a similar situation, the circumstances are likely to have multiple differences and each of us although made in the image of God are wired up uniquely. . . How can we make sure that our thoughts and ways are in alignment with the Almighty? This surely must come with the renewing of our minds. . . “Your hearts and minds must be made completely new, and you must put on the new self, which is created in God's likeness and reveals itself in the true life that is upright and holy.” ‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭4:23-24‬ ‭GNT‬‬‬‬‬‬ . . The closer our walk, the more we shall be like Him, but this side of heaven, we must be content to know that we are being changed in incremental steps of glory. . . “And we all, with unveiled face, beholding the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from one degree of glory to another. For this comes from the Lord who is the Spirit.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭3:18‬ ‭ESV‬‬‬‬‬‬ . . #souvenirs_de_vie #lifemoments #dailydevotions #followingjesus #memories #wisdom #gospel #bible #goodnews #praise #worship #christianblogger #manofgod #encouragement #christianblog #bibleverse #teamjesus #photos #photography
