Issues of Life

“…keep and guard your heart with all vigilance and above all that you guard, for out of it flow the springs of life...” Prov 4:23 AMP (italics and emphasis mine)

Did you know that your spirit knows things that your heart/mind (soul) or body (flesh) does not know? (1 Cor 2:6-16). Have you ever done something (based on intuition or gut as we call it) only to understand why later? I’m talking about last minute cancellation of a trip, stop signing of a contract or postpone paying that online store, sell/buy shares on stock market. Your spirit knew exactly what was going on but your mind (soul heart) and senses (body) had no clue...ever wondered why?

Our challenge is to keep clean and calm of our mind (heart) long enough to hear what our spirit is desperately trying to tell us. We need to exercise daily how to un-clutter our minds with unnecessary elements. Trouble is, however, our mind (intellect, emotions, will) and body (lust of the flesh) are so loud that we cannot hear what God’s Spirit is saying through our spirit. Fasting (deprive bodily desire) and waiting upon the Lord in a quiet place is a good start. David said, “…I have calmed and quieted my soul…” Ps 131:2a, AMP
