Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 2:16(AMP); 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].
The human mind is a weapon.
With this weapon, men have scaled mountains, conquered the vast expanse of oceans and seas, revolutionized medicine, and are exploring the frontiers of space.
One man said, “More gold has been mined from the thoughts of men than has been taken from the earth.”
By simply looking around you, you will see that the world is full of the exploits of people who have over the course of history harnessed the riches of the mind and done things that have made a mockery of the word, “impossible.”
In all this, the question is, “What is the contribution of the church?”
What is the part of men and women to whom the Bible says, “You know all things?” (1 John 2:20); What is the portion of those of whom the Bible says, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard and it has not entered into the hearts of men what God has prepared for those that love Him but He has revealed it to us by His spirit?” (1 Corinthians 2:9-10).
The infallible truth is that once you got Born Again, YOUR MIND GOT ELEVATED.
In our theme scripture, the Lord says that we have the mind of Christ and are guided by His thoughts and purposes. His thoughts are your thoughts.
That is why, as a church, we must drop the historical stance of humble ignorance that we adopted, which stance has crippled believers’ thinking for years.
The mind that you have as a new creature in Christ is capable of complex internalization like the world has never seen before; you have the capacity to solve complicated situations. Where people see problems, you see yourself as an answer.
You are a great thinker and a great problem solver because you do not have an ordinary mind but the mind of Christ.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Once you got Born Again, your mind got elevated. You are a great thinker and a great problem solver because you do not have an ordinary mind but the mind of Christ.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this Word. I am a new creature in Christ and all things about me are of God. My thinking is sharp and my reflections can never be dull. I offer solutions everywhere I go because my thoughts are not ordinary. I am an answer. In this understanding, I change my world to the glory of Your name, Amen.
