    God Thinking in Man

    That God designs to think and act for His people, is shown by His call to the wicked to forsake their way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts, and to return to the Lord, whose thoughts are so much higher than man’s thoughts as heaven is higher than the earth. 4Isaiah 55:7-9. When a man forsakes his ways and thoughts, and returns to the Lord, his ways and thoughts henceforth must be God’s.EVCO 361.2

    When God thinks for a man it is not like one man’s thinking for and imposing his will on another. There is perfect freedom. The man chooses God’s thoughts, because they are better than his own, and then God thinks in him, the man’s brain being the organ of the Holy Spirit. “For ye have not received the Spirit of bondage again to fear,” 1Romans 8:15. but God has given us the Spirit “of power and of love, and of a sound mind.” 22 Timothy 1:7. Only by the Spirit of God can anybody rightly know anything. 31 Corinthians 2:12. When men submit to be the temples of God, then is God’s will done on earth even as it is done in heaven.EVCO 361.3
