I spent a good portion of time recently reading back through some of my sister Detra’s materials. I wish she and I could sit down and talk one more time. I wish she could have witnessed while she was alive, the peace in Christ, I have come to know, daily & reliably.
I have come to realize: There Are Spiritual things You can know and not empirically understand. Some of the most profound revelations in Christ can be experienced in the deepest depths of your heart; known beyond any question or doubt, and yet not fathomed nor understood by your mind. You can know deeper in The Holy Spirit than you can understand solely with logic & calculation!
You cannot wiggle, squirm, strive or work to gain some of these timeless and eternity shaping lessons. God will show them to you if you are ready and need them. But they are Beyond the most exponentially advanced computer mind. They cannot be realized through mental acumen alone.
There are transforming truths that used to tortuously elude me, trying to figure them out. Now I know them deeply in my heart and no longer strive to comprehend, with mind alone. But they were a gift, when I rested the deepest matters of my heart, in honest trust of God. I could have never intellectually or philosophically apprehended them, without God showing them to me, in to me in the Spirit.
I think that’s why Jesus said, you must become as a little child to come to Him. Because it is not the advancement of your intellect by itself that will reveal the greatest Spiritual truths. Simple love for & Trust in Christ is beyond the test tube of the scientist. Yet, it is more true than the most empirically ratified scientific knowledge.
You often cannot prove Light’s shining rays of Spiritual warmth, with solved binary postulates. At times, You can’t even argue the help of Spiritual direction, without missing the point and essence of it. Sometimes you can’t even begin to explain it, to those you seem to think would benefit from it. (These powerful messages are at times like a For Your Eyes Only message. That you cannot transfer or relay to another successfully.) if you will rest in the secured depths of the love of God, He will communicate things to your spirit that are quantum leaps and galactic proportions beyond anything you can ever figure out in your mind singularly.
There is a sweet depth of peace in the knowledge of God that has satisfied my deepest longings. I may have to do some things that are not very enjoyable in this earthly realm. But I know who I do them for and why I do them. I am at peace. There are presents in the presence of the Spirit of God that are more wonderful, than the limits of my human vocabulary can describe.
Yes God gives me words. But they are His words and He gives them to me when He wants me to share them, not when I want to tell them. It is like resting in a current, that you are sure will take you to your home port. You have to let the current do its work, without fighting against it, for its successful flow, to take you where you want to go..
To know that I am being soundly and wisely guided; I no longer have to put learning myriads of knowledge about things, I am interested in, as Priority #1. As a true Christ walker & Holy Spirit follower; When I am ready and when & If I need them, God will share deeper principles with me. As long as my first priority is to walk, live dwell in His Light… (Seek Ye First) … It’s a one coming before the other deal! If we try to do it backwards, we may gain some very personally inflating knowledge but miss the spiritually fulfilling destiny, of the Holy Spirit’s deepest guidance. God satisfies my greatest questions and deepest longings, when I trust myself firstly and primarily into His hands. And He does this
….. with the sweet realization of Jesus.
King James Version
5 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.
