WE ALL have a narrative going on in our heads. It’s a running accumulation of thoughts and ideas influenced by everything from our childhood to what we hear on the news today.
Each and every encounter affects this narrative, in big ways or small.
And when you encounter God, his Word also impacts the narrative in your head. I say, let him speak to us. Give the Lord a voice in your life.
In many ways, God’s voice simply brings order to your thoughts. It’s not gaining new knowledge, but he puts things in their proper place.
He reminds you. He reorders your priorities to align with his. Then you move forward each day completing one task at a time.
Some people think seeking God’s presence is a waste of time. The reality is that it saves you time. When you have your priorities in order, life flows more smoothly.
It’s not that you don’t have problems, but you are more focused. You are solid. And you are sure.
But there is much more to your conversation with God than just organizing your thoughts. Some things can’t be understood with words alone. You can’t figure it all out on your own.
These are the deeper narratives that swirl around inside you. It’s the place where only God’s voice can explain things. It is his Spirit talking to your spirit.
All other voices here will fall short or only cause confusion. But the voice of God brings meaning to those mysterious places.
Where regret, loss or shame smolder, that’s where the Lord speaks to you in Spirit filled language.
Where injustice appears to rule, the Word of God reveals a higher authority.
With the Lord, you enter into an amazing, masterful conversation.
You will be challenged and delighted.
Hopes, fears, and dreams will be interpreted. Cleansing tears will fall.
Even in places of hurt, life and joy can be re-discovered.
And most of all, God’s Word brings peace.
You may not fully grasp it with your head, but your heart understands. Your soul knows.
And in the midst of so many voices, the Word of God echoes over all creation.
And the Kingdom of Heaven opens up to you. You gain the highest understanding when the Messiah speaks, as it is he who went to the cross to rise again.
So let him teach and explain things to you. Seek and listen to the voice that your soul yearns to hear.
Enter into a supernatural narrative that lets you rise above the chaos of this world. And from there, a clear way unfolds for you to walk upon.
Jesus is the way. Walk with him, with a clear mind.
Let him tell you secrets that only your heart understands.

This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for,
“Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.1 Corinthians 2:13-16
