Scripture’s Thinking Grid 

I remember how excited I was when I found a “Thinking Grid” in my Bible. A timeless tool that has provided guidance to Christians for centuries. This Thinking Grid specifies what thoughts to allow in your mind. And since thoughts influence words, it has direct influence on your speech and relationships.

Safe With God

“One of the first things you do when you walk into a room is turn on the light. That helps you see everything in the room, prevents falls and bumps, and helps you find your way. It gives familiarity to you in your environment and makes you feel welcome to the room.

It’s easy to turn a light on in a room. Why is it such a challenge to turn on the light in your thoughts and in your soul?

What Kind Of Free Are You?

You were created to be free. All people were. Yet, in order to live free, you have to think a certain way. Make certain choices. Freedom is so important to God that He established it deep in the original design of the human template. Then He gave you a mechanism to engage your freedom: your “free will.” He wants you to use it. He wants you to be utterly free!

Your One Good Option

I’m guessing you’ve had at least one time in your life when you felt your relationship with God was good. Maybe. Some have had several seasons. Yet, like seasons of the year, they keep changing. Your relationship with God shifts.

Some Questions:

What causes these shifts? Why the change? Who cuts in on your successes? Your peace. Freedom. Growth. What pushes you to your edge? Causes you to fall? And why do you go there?

Life: Life has rhythms. Ebb and flow. Continual change. Basic principles stay the same, but the message everywhere is – “change it up!” What you grew accustomed to has been switched out. Life is constantly pulsating. Whether it’s people, business, agriculture, medicine, ministry, science. It’s never quite the same each day. Some people find that adventurous. Others, threatening.

Fear of the Lord: What Exactly Is It?

Do you ever feel you just can’t get your act together? Do you sometimes doubt what you bring to the table? Maybe you think you simply don’t have much to contribute. You do love the Lord and want to serve Him. You want your life to make a difference in this world. However:

  • Eloquence – thinking on your feet – is not your native tongue.
  • You lack wisdom.
  • Blaring in your face is your weakness, not your strength.
  • Although you trust God, you find fears nesting in your heart. Fear of failure, pain, what people will think, missing God’s best, exposing unattractive character in yourself or someone else, hurting or letting someone down, your past haunts future progress.
  • The task before you is overwhelming. You tremble at what God asked you to do.
