God is a Spirit. His words are “spiritual Thoughts” that came out of Him. Remember, God thought before He spoke and created Heaven and earth and the things in them. He also created our spirit as the part of our being that holds thoughts that we acquire and know. I Corinthians 2:11declares, “For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God.” We must come to know God’s thoughts to receive His blessings.
We receive God’s words into our spirit by hearing them. (Romans 10:17) Technically, we receive His Thoughts, which are embodied in His words. He gives us His thoughts to think, abandoning our natural thoughts. For God’s Thoughts are higher than ours as well as those of Satan. (Isaiah 55:7-9) This is important to understand. God’s Thoughts have “dominion” over both natural and satanic thinking. Satan operates in a domain of spiritual darkness. He conceives wicked imaginations and develops devices that bring sickness, disease, turmoil, lack, etc. into people’s lives. However, his thoughts are lower than God’s thoughts. In Christ, we simply submit to God’s Thoughts, resist the devil with them and he flees from us. (James 4:7)
Also, God’s thoughts are destined to come to pass or manifest. Isaiah 14:24 declares, “The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand.” This Promise from God gives us a firm conviction of seeing His blessings manifest in our lives. God has promised us health; He has promised us abundance. As God has thought and we receive His thoughts and think them only, He performs to fulfill them in our lives. God Bless
