Reverend Olusola Areogun spoke about “How Christians Can Become Like God” in a recent Spirit Meat Daily Devotional posted on his office Facebook page. He read the book of Proverbs 23:7 which says, “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.”
According to him, one way by which you can become like God is to think like him. “Now, let us do a little bit of deduction here and I need you to follow me closely. If the point of all this is to become like God and the scripture above says “as a man thinketh in his heart so is he”, then it’s obvious that you can’t ever become like God until you start thinking like Him,” he said
So how can we think like God? Philippians. 4:8 says, “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.”
So, as easy as this sounds, it is the toughest of the three things we have considered in becoming like God. The devil knows the danger that allowing you to think as God poses to him and he’ll do everything in his power to stop you from thinking the right way.
Finally, he said that he will bring all sorts of frustrating, negative, or lustful thoughts. Fortunately for us, there is hope. The Bible gives us what we should actively think about. What then do we do when the devil shows up with a wrong thought? Just resist him (James 4:7).
