If you are reading this today, perhaps you have decided to set aside the first five minutes to take a deep breath and focus on Jesus. I’m glad you joined me.
10But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 11No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. 12And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.1 Corinthians 2:10-12
Regardless of what is planned for the day, breath in this truth. No one knows your thoughts except your own spirit. At a time when motives and actions are regularly called into question, it is affirming to focus on this truth.
It’s also important to remember that you cannot read anyone’s mind or know their thoughts either. A good friend told me recently to assume all comments are neutral until I find out for sure they aren’t. It’s such a relief to not read into the actions, comments or questions of others. Assume the best and I think others will do the same in return.
Rather than questioning what others are thinking or meaning, remember that you have the Spirit of God and he wants to remind you of all the wonderful things he has given you!
Take a few moments to let him bring his blessings to mind before you go into the day!
