Have You Lost Your Mind?

Recently, while driving in an unfamiliar city to an unfamiliar destination, the navigation system in my vehicle instructed me to make a left-turn that I immediately resisted. TomTom Navigation was leading me straight into the entrance of a state mental health facility. When I didn't make the turn, it corrected itself and re-routed me to my destination without fail, but not before I got a good laugh and told TomTom that I had not lost my mind! That's when the Holy Spirit said: Have you lost your mind? I smiled, because I immediately knew the answer. In this season, not only is God demanding that we lose our minds, but He is demanding that we lose our minds boldly and intentionally.

In other words, as we entirely embrace (do not resist) the turns, the adjustments, the assignments, the decisions and the destinies that flag us as being completely under the influence of an Almighty God (no longer under own control), entire destinies will be re-routed just to establish, to demonstrate and to flow into a more perfect measure of faith in God and Kingdom-mindedness. As strongholds of confinement are shattered, there are treasures of knowledge and power that God will release to an "All Sold Out" people.

Don't just drive by. Make a turn to take on the mind of Christ and let Him position you deeper into His Glory, His holiness, and His perfected will. Have you lost your mind?

"But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. For 'who has known the mind of the LORD that he may instruct Him?' But we have the mind of Christ." I Corinthians 2 :14-16
