When Michelle Obama said that famous quote; “when they go low, we go high”, she probably did not know the depth of the revelation she had tapped into.
“For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” – Isaiah 55:9
Life’s situations and ups and downs affect the way we think about ourselves and our circumstances. Bumps and mishaps on the journey of life will make us think little of ourselves sometimes, thoughts of inadequacy, failure and helplessness.
It is at these moments we need to learn to upgrade our thoughts to match God’s thoughts.
Check this out:
“No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us.” – 1 Corinthians 2:11-12
It is time to connect with the spirit of God that we have received so that we can KNOW what God has already blessed us with and done for us. When we connect with the Holy Spirit, our thoughts will be elevated to match God’s thoughts.
God’s thoughts about us are thoughts of love, good, progress, success and productivity. connecting with his spirit opens us to this and we begin to think those thoughts too.
That way, when life’s circumstances go low, we can truly go high.
