Spiritual Insight | #10

I can see you.

You have something to say, but you remain quiet.

The “intellects” talk with assertive language that communicates’ no need for questions for appearance to have all the answers.

But I see you… I can feel your heart… I know you’re there. There is potential, a gift inside so ready to burst; the mouth opens, but no words proceed.

Are you this person?

Has no one taken the time to hear you? To really pay attention to how you feel, to what you think? … To what you understand?

Don’t fear! Don’t hold back! Let it go! Let it out! Speak!

Everyone is shut-up for the value of your words, but will they listen?

The “intellects”, oh the “intellects”, how they are quick to correct for knowledge but disregard the heart… thinking to know something while understanding nothing.

The heart full of emotion boils with anger for want… until the water converts to steam becoming the evaporated elements of a demon that possesses the soul of the unheard, disregarded, and unconfessed.

Oh they will listen, because you have the words that flow from the heart of God to illuminate the mind for understanding.

It’s time for you to be heard. Tell the world the testimony of your heart.

But… what if… ?

Oh the “intellect”, how it calculates uncertainty for fear of feeling the appropriate emotion to govern knowledge that is from the Lord our God that prays the same, “God our Father who art in Heaven hollowed be your Name…”!

Feelings have the capacity to change the course of logic… capable of subduing demons that do not have right over your mind… a power from on high.

Don’t fear their inability to discern the language of love that speaks with power to disclose the state of the mind which reveals the condition of the heart for appropriate change, a conversion that saves the soul by the seed of the Holy Spirit of God from the Word of the Lord—the Word of Truth—the Word of Life—[Jesus Christ].

Tell the world to stop moving, sit down, I have something to say; dominion is the order of my purpose, evil has no place here for the reason of love of which God our Father in Heaven is trustworthy and faithful; this love was displayed in His only Son who willingly died an excruciating death on a cross, murdered by godless men and women, this same Son that was preached from the mouths of men inspired by the love of God that all men would be saved and come to the knowledge of truth; we’ve all gone astray, we’ve all sinned…

1 What is the source of quarrels and conflicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? 2 You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you fight and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. 4 You adulteresses, do you not know that friendship with the world is hostility toward God? Therefore whoever wishes to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God. 5 Or do you think that the Scripture speaks to no purpose: “He jealously desires the Spirit which He has made to dwell in us”? 6 But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, “GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.” 7 Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. 8 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9 Be miserable and mourn and weep; let your laughter be turned into mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. 11 Do not speak against one another, brethren. He who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks against the law and judges the law; but if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge of it. 12 There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy; but who are you who judge your neighbor? 13 Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, and spend a year there and engage in business and make a profit.” 14 Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. 15 Instead, you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and also do this or that.” 16 But as it is, you boast in your arrogance; all such boasting is evil. 17 Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin.

James 4
