“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 NKJV
Have you ever found that God does things different than you do? Sometimes what seems to be an obvious answer or choice isn’t what He chooses, but that’s because He sees much more that we do, and He is always working for His glory.
A number of years ago, I injured my ankle. I was believing for a miracle, but after an X-ray confirmed it was broken and a cast was fitted, I was forced to concede. At that moment I said, “God, if I have to wear a cast, then I want you to somehow get glory from this.” After four weeks the cast came off and the doctor said he’d never seen something like that heal so quickly. I told him I’d been praying to which he said very little.
One year later I was back at the same doctor’s office for a severe staph infection. What amazed me was that in addition to the treatment plan, he said, “Oh, and you also need to pray because that seems to work for you.” One year later, and God was still able to get glory for something. I suddenly saw a much bigger picture.
We may not immediately see what our Father sees, but as we have the mind of the Anointed One and His anointing, we can better understand and trust that He has all things under control.
“I declare that I have the mind of the Anointed one and His Anointing. I choose to allow my mind to be fuelled by the Holy Spirit and the Word of God…”
