Remember the old commercial of the frying egg with the words “the mind is a terrible thing to waste”? It was of course about frying your brain on drugs. But this morning as that old scene comes to mind God speaks to my heart.
When we allow ourselves to think wrong thoughts we are literally frying our brains. As a believer we’ve been given the mind of Christ. God came in and did a surgical replacement. And yet the enemy speaks as often as he can: worthless, has been, throwaway, insignificant. He doesn’t always come directly at us but he sends whomever he can to light the fire and begin to fry.
You are not the sum of the things that have happened to you! They have nothing to do with your worth! God doesn’t send any word to you that doesn’t line up with His love, mercy and grace. It really doesn’t matter what others do or what your current situation is. All that matters is that you live loved and cherished by the LORD! Paralysis by your past regrets is not your fate. You don’t have to sit and fry in your present circumstances! Fried to a crisp and thrown out is not your outcome!
Oh beloved, wake up this morning and put on the mind of Christ you were given at your new birth. Even if you were born with less than in the natural, you have more than as a child of God! Jump out of that frying pan, turn off that fire and breathe in the fresh air and cool breeze of the Spirit of the Living God! This is your day to quit lamenting the past. This is your day to start believing God about you! What He says is REALITY! What the enemy meant to burn you down and ruin your life over God is turning to Good! Watch as He changes everything. The only fire you will be living with from this day forward is the FIRE of the Holy Spirit! If the same Spirit who raised Christ from the dead dwells in you, He has promised to quicken your mortal body with that SAME SPIRIT!
God loves you just as you are. He’s for you right where you are. Don’t waste the blessing you have that is verified in The Word. Don’t spend another minute living the lie of doubts and fears. You are set free to be who you are meant to be in Christ as you live in the Light of God’s Word!
