Good Idea Vs God idea

Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinks within himself, so he is


Isaiah 55: 8-9“For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. 9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.

An idea is defined as thought in your mind, your intention, and personal view. An idea is a person’s thoughts and personal views. The quality of an idea or thought is dependent on the source. Source determines size. We develop our thoughts based on our influence and the knowledge we have acquired. However, no matter your exposure  or the level of knowledge you have acquired form human sources, you are still limited because humans by nature and by  themselves alone are limited but God is infinite. And God is His mercy has decided to help us remove the limit on our lives through Jesus Christ. He has given us the mind of Christ. However, this mind is activated through revelation knowledge of the Bible. Romans 12: 2 instruct us to transform our minds by renewing it with the word of God. So to think higher thoughts, to rise to higher ways and live the higher life, we must connect with the mind of God through his word. The Psalmist says, I have become wiser than my teachers because you testimonies are my meditations. As you have to develop your natural mind via learning by engaging your mind with sharper minds, so also you need to engage your mind with God’s mind via meditation on the word on a regular basis. God idea is superior to Good idea because they have both earthly and heavenly value. God idea makes you relevant before God and man. God idea puts above those that are limited to only Good ideas. God idea is always the best idea but Good ideas are not necessarily end well. God idea can never fail but good ideas can sometimes fail. God ideas are Godly and never selfish but God ideas could be self-centred.

Friend why, recommend you get Good and God operation in your life. As you connect with God’s word you will emerge with God idea.
