Wake Up

We have been promised that we have the mind of Christ. Which means we have His thoughts, His feelings, His purposes and His desires. We are also promised that we have a tree growing in our hearts that produces love, joy peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

But my reality is sometimes my thoughts are evil. Sometimes my desires are selfish. Some days it feels as if my fruit tree is a barren shrub. I know who I am in Him. I know His promises concerning me are true. But how do I get my reality to align with spiritual truth?

Have you ever had a dream where you were acting out of character or that produced fear? And you realize you are dreaming so you wake yourself up?

Maybe that is what I need to do. When I find myself acting contrary to who God says I am, contrary to the promises of God, I should wake myself up. Maybe I should say to myself when I am fearing, when I am impatient, when I am thinking the worse of someone, “Hey this is not me. I have the mind of Christ. I have His thoughts, His feelings, His desires, His purposes. Wake up Melissa. You are having a nightmare. Your reality is that you have the mind of Christ. You have a blossoming fruit tree in your heart. Wake up, Melissa and walk in the reality of who you truly are.”

“But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].”
‭‭1 CORINTHIANS‬ ‭2:16‬b AMP‬‬
