Romans 8:7 - In as much as fleshly thinking is opposed to God, for it is
not subject to the Law of God, neither indeed can be.

God desires us to think in a totally different way than we have learned
from our natural experiences. He desires us to believe and expect the
supernatural things He has revealed to us in His Word. The things God
desires us to think and do have not been revealed through man's wisdom and
experience. What God has for us cannot be received or accomplished through
human insight and ability. It is only by the Spirit that we are able to do
the things pleasing to God.

The things of the Spirit are so different from what human experience
dictates that they are foolish to the man who only thinks in the realm of
human ability (1 Corinthians 2:14). God desires to show us things by His
Spirit, which eyes have not seen, nor ears heard, neither has ever entered
into the heart (or thinking) of man (1 Corinthians 2:9-10). God operates in
a spiritual, unseen world from which the mouths of lions are stopped, and
the violence of fire has no power (Hebrews 11:33-34).

This is the spiritual realm where Jesus, our Lord, turned the water into
wine, walked on the water, and raised the dead. It is the realm of faith
where righteousness is victorious over all sin and disobedience. The realm
of the Spirit is the realm taught to us by the Word of God, where we learn
to be lead by the Spirit of God. It is only in this realm that we can
please God.
