The Bible tells us to renew our minds in Christ; we so easily forgot the spiritual, the things of the spirit are not at all in our faces, unlike our natural surroundings and the physical world, which demand our constant attention and provoke our natural human logic and stimulate only that which we can control. This, our consistent, physical reality, when it comes to seeking God, gets in the way far more than it helps us. It takes time, but with patience with ourselves and a determination to overcome our natural propensities, we can retrain ourselves to think more like God thinks and develop a sort of godly logic. This is not to say that we could ever comprehend His Mysterious, Superior Ways, but learn to think better than our natural tendencies direct us to….

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33)

“Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20-21)

“And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:2)


“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” (Proverbs 3:5-6)

“So teach us to number our days, That we may gain a heart of wisdom.”
Psalm 90:12

“When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.”
Proverbs 11:2

“It is better to trust in the Lord Than to put confidence in man.”
Psalm 118:8

“He who is slow to wrath has great understanding, But he who is impulsive exalts folly.”
Proverbs 14:29

“The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom, And before honor is humility.”
Proverbs 15:33

“A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.”
Proverbs 18:2

“When pride comes, then comes shame; But with the humble is wisdom.”
Proverbs 11:2

Please note, these godly principles recorded in Psalms and Proverbs do not resemble human logic. As is pointed out, our sort of logic tells us to do things that will result in our feeling pride in ourselves, extend our lives here on earth at all costs and go with our first instincts and emotional feelings on most everything. And it certainly never tells us to choose humility or fear the Lord!



I have been writing for many years. I really got serious when my 3 kids were still quite young, as they inspired me to write children’s fiction. I now have 22 Amazon publications. Also, I’ve just completed a Bible study course. I am now a certified Bible Counsellor!
