DEVELOP YOUR MIND

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 Kings 3:9-28

But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 1:24

Solomon developed internal stability in the nation by the wisdom of God and the use of his mind. I believe in using the wisdom of God. Wisdom is still the principal thing and we need to use the mind if we are to experience the kind of success Solomon enjoyed.

God gave me my mind and I intend to use it. My mind needs to be alert in order for me to take important decisions that concern the administration and smooth running of my ministry. I have heard the Holy Spirit speaking to me in my heart many times. I believe in what he tells me and I obey him. Nevertheless, my mind is still alert and active. I try to understand and reason out every commandment that the Lord gives me.

Many Christians are either so emotional or spiritual that they have no use of their minds. Others are so logical and rational that the Spirit of God cannot move in their lives and churches. The key here is to balance the Spirit with wisdom. That is the will of God. Every Christian must learn to achieve a balance between the power and the wisdom. Christ Jesus is not only power to us. He is power and wisdom.

Parents, push your children as far as they can go in education. One day, they will thank you because you helped them to develop their minds. When you are able to combine the power and the wisdom effectively, you will begin to experience Solomonic Success. Remember, one without the other is not enough.
