“The Holy Spirit in you is your inspiration to follow the plans that God knows he has for you to fulfil your purpose on this planet.”
1 Corinthians 2:16
“For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Thomas Carlyle said, “Have a purpose in life, and, having it, throw such strength of mind and muscle into your work as God has given you.” One of my contemporary heroes of faith, Reinhard Bonnke, said, “God’s Spirit is more than accurate. His directions come from the mind of omnipotence.” Indeed, God has called you and me on purpose; he does nothing without intent. The premise of God-tracking is this, God knows the plans he has for you, plans for an inspired purpose. But where does that inspiration come from?
We read in 1 Corinthians chapter 2 that there exists in the world two types of people: the natural man and the spiritual man. (There are actually three types of people, there is also the carnal man but we don’t have time to chat about him today.) The natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God. The spiritual man, on the other hand, is one born of and filled with the Holy Spirit. He is the true Christian believer.
We also read in this chapter that the Holy Spirit knows the mind of God. The Spirit-filled Christian has the Holy Spirit in his spirit man. The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ, that is, the mind of Christ. We also read here, “But we have the mind of Christ.” Therefore, by God’s grace, the Spirit-filled believer’s directions come from the mind of omnipotence. That is to say, the Holy Spirit in you is your inspiration to follow the plans that God knows he has for you to fulfil your purpose on this planet.
So, go for it! Write that book, record that song, start that business, paint that painting, bake that cake, speak those gentle words, teach that Sunday School, lead that worship. Fulfil your purpose with the mind of Christ.
God-tracking is going for it with the mind of Christ.
