Let God Illuminate Your Mind

“The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”         Psalm 19:8 NIV

The Psalmist writes, “The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.”  God can put an idea in your mind that changes the direction of your life.  Marconi had an idea from which came the radio.  Bell had an idea from which came the telephone.  God, Who’s a creator, gives creative ideas to people all the time.  But you must act on them; otherwise He will give them to somebody else.  Isn’t it time you asked Him for one of His ideas for your life?  The fact that you believe in God is wonderful.  But here’s something equally wonderful–God believes in you!

Instead of looking at your present situation and thinking, “I guess my life’s as good as it’s ever going to get,” start asking, “Lord, what do You have in mind for me?”  If you let it, life can beat you down and make you feel low, lost, lacking, and limited in ability and potential.  And if you act on these feelings and thoughts instead of what God says about you in His Word, you’ll never move forward and fulfill what He put you on this earth to do.  You say, “God has never given me one of His great ideas.”  Maybe that’s because you have never asked Him for one!  He gives them to seeking hearts, prepared hearts, faith-filled hearts, and obedient hearts.  Here’s a profile of the kind of person God gives great ideas to: “His delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night…Whatever he does prospers” (Psalm 1:2-3 NIV).
