Stand Aside

Give Me permission, Christ promises, and it is yours. My mind for yours (1 Corinthians 2:16)—a holy exchange. Perhaps it’s silly, but I’m visual, so I’ve started taking this promise from God’s Word and claiming it through a simple exercise. Sometimes in my mind, but sometimes (on especially difficult days) with an actual poke to my chest, I push an imaginary button. Then, by faith, I envision my mind dropping out of sight while the mind of Christ rises to take its place. After all, there are situations and circumstances in my life when a sparkling, washed-by-the-Word mind is simply not enough. Times when I need my thoughts and feelings and will to be Christ’s very own. According to the Bible, I can have both. The natural made new, the supernatural made mine. My mind bound to His.
