His Mind

“For who has known or understood the mind (the counsels and purposes) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts (feelings and purposes) of His heart.” –
1 Corinthians 2:16b, Amplified Classic Edition


Don’t become partners with those who reject God. How can you make a partnership out of right and wrong? That’s not partnership; that’s war. Is light best friends with dark? Does Christ go strolling with the Devil? Do trust and mistrust hold hands? Who would think of setting up pagan idols in God’s holy Temple? But that is exactly what we are, each of us a temple in whom God lives. God himself put it this way:

‘I’ll live in them, move into them;
    I’ll be their God and they’ll be my people.
So leave the corruption and compromise;
    leave it for good,’ says God.
‘Don’t link up with those who will pollute you.
    I want you all for myself.
I’ll be a Father to you;
    you’ll be sons and daughters to me.’
The Word of the Master, God.” – 2 Corinthians 6:14-18

My Strength

“I’ve picked you. I haven’t dropped you.’
Don’t panic. I’m with you.
There’s no need to fear for I’m your God.
**I’ll give you strength. **

I’ll help you.
I’ll hold you steady, keep a firm grip on you.”

**Each time I read that sentence, I heard the Holy Spirit add the word “My”; I’ll give you My strength.”  Wow!  Speechless!  That means limitless strength.  He, the Creator of everything, give me, a dot on the spectrum of eternity, His own strength.  Speechless.


“For whatever God says to us is full of living power: it is sharper than the sharpest dagger, cutting swift and deep into our innermost thoughts and desires with all their parts, exposing us for what we really are.” – Hebrews 4:12, The Living Bible

wisdom and honey go together

“From a wise mind comes careful and persuasive speech.
Kind words are like honey—enjoyable and healthful.”

Proverbs 16:23-24, The Living Bible (TLB)

Don’t Get Eaten!

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.” – I Peter 5:8, New Living Translation

He knows what is in our hearts

“Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in him.  But Jesus didn’t trust them, because he knew all about people.  No one needed to tell him about human nature, for he knew what was in each person’s heart.” *

Ouch!  Father, please clean my heart up!


*(John 2:23-25, New Living Translation)
