The Expansion of Our Intellectual Lives
We’re Asking God to Renew Our Minds!
Read: Romans 12:1-21
Believe: In order to expand our lives, our thoughts must become God-sized! (Choosing to think like our King Jesus means we look at everything with His eyes, with His understandings, and His priorities!)
Ask: So, ask God these three questions and listen throughout your day for His responses:
• Since I’m asking You to expand my thinking to make it God-sized, what do I need to do, to remove or to add, in order to invest more time into being alone with Your Words and applying them to every aspect of my life, according to my reading today?
• Since I’m asking You to expand my thinking to make it God-sized, what do I need to do to humble myself and serve others, just as my King Jesus did when He came to earth to give His life for me, according to my reading today?
• Since I’m asking You to expand my thinking to make it God-sized, what do I need to do in order to actually make my love for others God-sized, according to my reading today?
Pray: For a God-sized expansion of my thinking I will need to pray like this … “Lord, I am a small thinker. I refuse times alone in Your words. I waste time in useless pursuits. Forgive me. Correct me. Convince me that only YOUR WORDS will transform my mind and change my life. I need your thoughts flowing through my heart and actions in I want You to expand my life for Your glory in my story in 2020: Our Year of Expansion!”
Be Specific. Now, pour out your heart to God for the things you are praying and fasting for. as it pertains to your thinking and application of those thoughts, ESPECIALLY asking God to answer the three questions above.
A Year of Expansion!
