Does God Break Into My Mind?

GodReflection: God Breaks in Mondays

Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:2). . .the mind governed by the Spirit is life and peace (Romans 8:6). – Paul 

garyguarujaMy mind is me.

It is in this portion of my soul where I process reality.

Like my Adamic body, there is no guarantee my mind will be functional until the transition into the next reality. I’m already getting hints thatthe old gray matter ain’t what it used to be.”

At the resurrection when all becomes new—just as my body will rise in a state of eternal perfection, so will my heart, my mind, and my soul. God will transform each unique piece of me into newness—a flawless life to live in the presence of the Holy.

Among God’s wonderful creative gifts is the human mind. It functions within the free will the Creator wired into humankind.

In light of the death and resurrection of Jesus, God offers the gift of eternal salvation—the promise of resurrection—to submissive hearts. Inclusive in the acceptance of the gift my task on earth becomes one of growth to mirror the heart of God and to allow my heart to reflect Jesus for others.

How does that growth take place?

mind4Just as God uses heart, body, and soul, He also uses my mind to help me know His own heart.

Thus, I wonder as to how God uses His gift of my mind that functions based upon free will.

It was in my mind where I decided to give God my heart. It was in my mind where I accepted or rejected the opportunities and desires God set before me.

Was that God breaking into my mind?

Allow me to present an opinion.

Here is what I’ve observed.

I’m a little slow to catch on but I am beginning to see there is more to the Holy dwelling within my spirit than my knowledge that the Godhead is using me as temporary housing.

Could it be that the indwelling gives the Holy a platform to break into my mind?

Is it possible that God causes certain books, sermons, blogs, people, acts of kindness, and questions to cross my path?

Is it His purpose to break into my mind so that I can sort within my free will the ideas that God wants planted in my life?

By faith and trust, can I believe that God knows exactly what I need to encounter to grow mind5into the likeness of His heart?

It seems to be more than coincidence for someone to recommend to me a book totally unknown before, and then upon reading it, discover the content to be exactly what I need to hear at a precise time in my life.

Is that God breaking into my mind?

Is it shear chance that over the past few weeks I’ve heard three men from three different pulpits in three different sections of the country present a series of lessons on the book of Nehemiah or is there something within Nehemiah that God wants for me to hear?

Is that God breaking into my mind?

Perhaps, I should keep my antenna more attuned to the Holy.

It’s enough to make a guy wonder if God breaks into minds don’t you think?

Stay tuned.
