Spiritual Intelligence: I am defining as actionable faith – the act of doing what you see God do, and Intelligence is the understanding of what’s placed before you to do in the Word of God by the Holy Spirit. I am calling the Word application actionable intelligence because spiritual power can only be obtained by means of believing, understanding and obeying the Word heard, and then receiving it’s benefits by faith. Faith is acting on the Word of God to effect change in the world.
I like reading the message bible because it’s words are more clearly stated in contemporary phrases and one can better understand its intentions and application. When the Holy Spirit said to me, I have given you the key, He was not only referring to understanding the Word but also applying the Word.
This is important because without an understanding to apply the word read we miss reaping its benefit. This is also why proverbs tell us “in all your getting get an understanding”. And the book of James tells us to not just hear the Word but be a doer also. This means understanding how to apply the Word is a master key to entering The Kingdom of God and victory in your life. The Word of God will work if you work it!
“Worry weighs us down; a cheerful word picks us up.” Proverbs 12:25 MSG.
In the case of worry pulling you down, one can feel their stress level increase with each negative thought. Documenting what you are thinking and saying at the point of sluggish or depressed feelings will show you, “you are your own worst enemy”. The words coming out of your mouth are your very own prophecies. The issue is not our family, neighbors, community nor what’s happening in the World. The Word of God can correct this issue by learning to move and abide in the Holy Spirit and let go of things you cannot change, changing the things you can and trusting God for everything else. This is key to a peaceful existence. Herein is the power of the Holy Spirit of God to transform your fears to faith, hope and life. Energy flows where attention goes; if you think negative thoughts long enough negative actions will follow. Positive thinking is required for positive actions. I hear you saying, but I am practicing positive thinking but the negative things continue to happen to me. This can be the results of the season you are in (Matthew 5), the power of truth coming into being that cancels out falsehood or just a need for more knowledge and wisdom on the subject. The Holy Ghost comes to destroy your enemies but to save you. Deliverance only come at the point of divine completion. I say to you fist and foremost to have faith in God and to encourage yourself through reading the Word, praising and worshipping the Lord.
“Always let others see you behaving properly, even though they may still accuse you of doing wrong. Then on the day of judgment, they will honor God by telling the good things they saw you do.” 1 Peter 2:12 CEV.
