We humans have so many deep things in common
Stars and sunsets capture the eye, intrigue the mind and uplift the heart. We humans have much in common on our way from conception, birth to age and death. Deep within our human spirits yearn for the eternal, the substantial, the satisfying. Some how we can connect with each other when we share the deep things of the spirit inside of us. The hope and pain, the love and fear, desire and frustration link us if we let them. In many ways we reflect the God who created us.
When God created His creatures He did not just let them loose to do their thing; He also blessed them with growth and purpose. Genesis 1:22: God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” Genesis 1:28: God blessed them. God said to them, “Be fruitful, multiply, fill the earth, and subdue it. Have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the sky, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
We can be like our Heavenly Father in our words
We ought also to be blessers. Matthew 5:44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
Where do the blessings originate that come out of our mouths or keyboards? First we draw upon God’s own good intentions revealed in His Word and His actions. Then our mind tries to think of things to say to a person we care about so they can increase and be glad. But how do we match the mind of God with the spirit of a person so they receive everything God wants to give them, especially despite their negative circumstances? We can ask God for help, for His revelation in our spirits.
How about asking our own human spirit what I/my spirit would say? My human spirit is I. My own amazement started when I asked the Lord what He thought of my thinking and He answered instantly. Then I started asking the seven portions of my spirit what I think, and again I started getting answers. This does not always happened right away, but often it does. Now I want to bless people with the blessings my own human spirit wants to give.
My spirit can connect with other people’s spirits to express God’s blessing
Finally I recognize why some Bible passages excite me. It’s because my spirit really resonates with what God is saying. All I have to do is ask 7 times what is so exciting. My mind and my spirit take this input and turn it into spoken/written blessings. I believe I am doing what Paul said in I Corinthians 2:10 But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. 12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. 13 Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things.
We take the input of God’s Spirit and put it into spiritual words that human spirits then respond to. Here is alignment and synchronization: God’s written Word, God’s today revelation, the Holy Spirit, my human spirit and my mind/soul all expressing God’s heart to bless and transform. Halleluia! This is joy.
