Daily devotional: I have received the Spirit of God and the mind of Christ!

Scripture
We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.
1 Corinthians 2:12 NIV

Observation
No one can understand the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God (v.11), but we as believers in Jesus Christ have been given God's Holy Spirit so we can understand the things of God! And we have been given the mind of Christ (v.16)!

Application
Since I have been given the Spirit of God and the mind of Christ, don't go on walking in my own spirit and my own mind. Rather, be transformed by Jesus and walk in the newness of life He gives me. Communicate with Him and seek His wisdom rather than man's.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for this new day and another opportunity to walk in step with Your Spirit. Thank you so much for drawing me to You through Christ Jesus. Thank you for giving me newness of life through Your Son. Thank you for giving me the Spirit so that I can understand what You have freely given me and for giving me the mind of Christ. Draw me closer to You and fill me with Your Spirit. Let me not continue in foolish thinking or the wisdom of this world, but rather help renew me and let me see things as You see them. I love you!
