                                                   … the mind of Christ!

Under the Old Covenant, God said this through the prophet Isaiah

      For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
      Nor are your ways My ways,” says 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

What a blessing to know that Jesus came
… and that He changed all of that,

      For ‘who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?’
      But we have the mind of Christ.
      1 Corinthians 2 16

We have the mind of Christ, which means that
we can think God’s way,
and His thoughts can be our thoughts.

      Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus,
      Philippians 2 5

Therefore when we are under pressure,
when we don’t know what to do,
we simply need to do what Scripture tells us to do,

      casting down arguments and every high thing
      that exalts itself against the knowledge of God,
      bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
      2 Corinthians 10 5

In other words,
      bring those thoughts and pressures to Jesus,
      … let Him guide your thoughts and actions,
      … let Him tell you what to do.
