Am I the only one walking around talking to myself? I am repeating the Put It In Your Pocket statements, reminding myself that I am empowered and I am forgiven—when my thoughts gravitate towards unrighteous thinking.
Today, I’m trying to hit this one out of the park. Short and sweet. 🙂 Especially after yesterday’s lengthy post.
But the spiritual man [the spiritually mature Christian] judges all things [questions, examines and applies what the Holy Spirit reveals], yet is himself judged by no one [the unbeliever cannot judge and understand the believer’s spiritual nature]. For who has known the mind and purposes of the Lord, so as to instruct Him? But we have the mind of Christ [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].
You have the mind of Christ. Yes YOU, if you are a spiritual man (or woman). And today I’m using the Amplified mostly because it speaks plain on this matter.
It tells us the spiritual woman judges all things and understands all things because she has the mind of Christ.
I think we can rest in this today.
To me this means, we can read a post like yesterday’s about sin and temptation and exhale down to our toes upon reading these verses. The Spirit gives us the ability to question, examine and apply the truths He reveals to us.
Isn’t that freeing?!
This means as we move about our day we can have those millions of thoughts and have the ability, through the power of the Holy Spirit, to say…
“That’s trash…” Forgive me Father.
“Look at that beautiful sunset…
And not miss a beat. Those who don’t get it and don’t get you won’t get it. But that is okay too.
I wanted to rest in this thought for a day or so.

The thoughts of mature Christians are guided by the Holy Spirit.
We are approaching our weekend review and catch up time. I will post but I’ll keep it light. I strongly encourage you to revisit the heavier posts early this week and carry today’s principle along with you.
Revisit your notes and your thoughts. And once you do, take a few minutes to read 1 Corinthians 2:6-16.
I believe you’ll be blessed.
“Put It In Your Pocket”
I have the mind of Christ.
You who gives freely of Yourself, Your knowledge, Your wisdom and Your love. Guide us Father to a closer walk with you. Teach us Lord to question, examine, and apply what You reveal. As we continue to study, pray and meditate on Your truths strengthen us to go the distance.
Thank you Father, because I know Your greatest will is for us to know You better. I submit this prayer in Jesus’ name.
