GodReflection: Power Words
To believe God and follow Jesus has little to do with intellect. It is a matter of trust.
Pulpits and professors often make it sound as if a lost person needs to understand Old Testament History and the book of The Revelation to please and appease God—not so.
Jesus is never concerned with brain size. His issue is trust.
So, why would a disciple concern his/herself with deep digging?
My guess is that God wired some uniquely as the deep diggers. I know wonderful Christ followers not assembled in this manner. They too walk close to God. They follow different sacred pathways in their walk with the Holy.
After a lifetime of observation, I conclude the intellectual pathway to be my second trail most traveled. I believe the reason is its fit with my primary thinker pathway.
Let me say again; for most observers to think of the intellectual pathway as bringing anyone close to God seems a far stretch. Is it possible those who walk the intellectual trail find themselves wired by God to seek? It is in my DNA to want to know. That doesn’t make me better—only different.
To do so is to follow a walkway designed for me. The intellectual pathway seems to be a good fit for my quest. I contend that I walk with ease the intellectual pathway since that is the trail God designed me to follow.
I described in an earlier post the pathway of builder as being my third most natural trail in relating to the Holy. It is as if my primary path of thinker merges with my secondary path the intellectual, to fuel my third trail as builder. The three paths merge into a broader road where I encounter God within the greatest potential of my wired design.
I walk this trail in view of the fact it is God’s wiring—a circuitry that came from Him.
I praise you for giving the artist, the builder, the caregiver, the thinker, the expressive, and the intellectual personalities each a familiar path to walk that they may better know you.
In the name of the Holy,
