What are places for you that are conducive for revelation and inspiration? I have two distinct areas that the Holy Spirit likes to drop nuggets on me and that is in the middle of my workout at the gym or during growth track on Wednesday nights at Canvas Church. Just weeks ago we briefly got on the topic of a persons tendency to worry constantly. I considered my own worry in the past. The job I perform tends to be very high stress and competitive so worry sneaks his ugly head in whenever he can, and most of the time without my even realizing it. That’s when something interesting dawned on me. Knowing full well that there is nothing beneficial about worrying, (Worry weighs a person down!~Proverbs 12:25) we do it anyway because it has become our motivational tool! Which of course is completely backwards, and not to say we have ALL adopted this behavior but I think the state of people’s overall mental state this day and age makes this evident. Example..
“I’m SCARED I’ll lose my job, so I MUST work harder!
“I’ll do my BEST and perform my job as if I were doing it for my Saviour and let HIM be my security because HE’s BIGGER than any circumstance I could ever have including whether or not I have this job.”
If this were a quiz I’d ask which one of these responses is the correct one 😉
“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men”~Colossians 3:23
Why did people become this way??? In the study of quantum physics, there is a neuronet in a person’s brain were billions of signals are being transferred back and forth CONSTANTLY. The substance (chemicals) and energy being transferred aid in forming our emotion and ultimately our behavior. From the moment we were born the vast net started to grow, developing us into the person we are to become. (That along with genes and what our moms and pops gave us). In the quantum study there is what is known as a “synaptic bond” that is formed along this neuronet. These bonds are formed by the release of certain chemicals in the brain that are triggered by life experiences. If a certain life experience is repeated often the bond becomes stronger in the neuro world. These strong synaptic bonds will become the dominant force in our thought life and actions.
If a child is abused constantly the bond is formed.
If a person constantly speaks negativity about oneself or others..bonds are formed.
If a person is in an environment where the continually HEAR lies and negativity…bonds are formed
If a person allows themselves to view pornography on a regular basis..bonds are formed
If a person spends most of their time filling their mind with trash and dirt……they will have bonds of trash and dirt.
If a person is uplifted as they grow…these bonds also form
If a daughter is told she is beautiful and talented by her parents..bonds are formed.
If a person worships, prays and meditates on Gods word….THOSE STRONG BONDS ARE FORMED!!!
WheeewwwwwWWWW HOOOOOOoo!!!! Science is WONDERFUL folks! And I believe God loves science because He is the one who has orchestrated it all together……why many scientists don’t understand that major aspect of their work is mind-boggling to me. When a negative bond was formed, somewhere along the line that individual started believing and entertaining lies pertaining to themselves and the world around them. We know where the “lie” originates from don’t we? The adversary. Sounds suspiciously like the beginnings of a stronghold doesn’t it? The enemy WILL use every possible angle to pin down a child of God in a desperate attempt to restrain them from their purpose. It’s a good thing our God has the ability to dynamite anything that would desire to have a grip on us…I’m praying and believing for chains to fall and for my sisters and brothers to be freed from bondage. GOD HAS THE POWER!
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”~Matthew 19:26
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.~Philippians 4:8
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.~Ephesians 4:23
