Thoughts from God (are common)

God is able to put thoughts in your mind. Ideas about God aren’t enough. Learn to recognize the thoughts that He sends you.

Thoughts that nudge you toward goodness, kindness, peace, and patience aren’t from yourself. They’re thoughts from God. Thoughts of gratitude and appreciation don’t originate with you. They come directly from God.

Thoughts from God are like the beauty of nature. They flood our mind, but we get so focused on self we neglect to notice them. Thoughts from God continually pass through the human brain unnoticed, not because they’re rare, but because they’re common.

Christianity teaches people thoughts about God, but too often it trains them to ignore the thoughts from God that flow through their mind. Be Spirit-led. Ask God to give you a thought. Then wait for His gift to appear. Aha!

Jesus is called “Emmanuel,” which means, “God with us.” He’s not watching us from a distance. You can hear His thoughts in you. If churches trained people to notice and obey thoughts from God, Christians wouldn’t be dependent on Sunday sermons anymore.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
