Gray Matter Matters

"For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit [by the Holy Spirit within me] prays, but my mind is unproductive [it bears no fruit and helps nobody]. Then what am I to do? I will pray with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will also pray [intelligently] with my mind and understanding; I will sing with my spirit [by the Holy Spirit that is within me], but I will sing [intelligently] with my mind and understanding also" (c) 1 Cor 14:13-15 AMP, italics and emphasis mine

I have met scores of 'spiritual' brothers/sisters who believe that as long as they 'live in the spirit' all other things will be sorted-out somehow; they make it sound as though once you are born again you can 'kiss your common sensemind, gray mattergoodbye" this is far from the truth. We may be living in the spirit, but we are in the flesh as well and thus we need our 'sound minds' in place and in use.
 
Paul prays 'in spirit-tongues' and using his mind—intelligence; he knows that our minds play a key role not only in knowing God but also walking and working with Him. One of the secret I have found is, our minds are designed to work smarter with 'goals' and 'milestones vs time' in place. Give your mind a goal and timescale and see how it will work 'with you' to materialize it—not just in prayers but also in practice.
