Drawing Up, From the Well of Wisdom Located “Deep” Within Your Heart

The scripture in Proverbs 20: 5 of the Christian Bible, says: “Counsel in the heart of man is like deep water, but a man of understanding will draw it out”. A deep look at that scripture will give you the impression that an immeasurable amount of treasures lies within each human beings heart; and these treasures can help each individual live an outstanding and distinguished lifestyle! There is counsel, information and direction within the deepest part of man. It takes a lot of time and thinking to pull them out. Also, it takes wisdom to apply them towards becoming a mystery to your generation. When Joseph (of ancient Israel) gave Pharaoh insight into the impending economic crisis of their era, Pharaoh used that insight as a unique breakthrough in preventing the occurrence of any serious calamity. Joseph advised the king on how food could be preserved for seven years; without decadence, and without the application of any sophisticated technology.

In so many instances, seeking help by running from place to place, is not the real solution to some major issues in life. There is advice, information, direction and solution – within you. Your responsibility is to settle down and discover them. Many people don’t create time to settle down, meditate, think and plan; and so they end up frustrated. At every junction of life, meditate deeply within your spirit, in order to obtain directions. When you are committed to being thoughtful, through meditation, then you’ll be given proper direction. Most of the modern wonders of science were invented because men created time to think and tap into the abundance of wealth and treasures located within their minds. For example, electricity was around all the while: but no one saw it or did anything about it, until Benjamin Franklin thought about it, and brought it into physical existence.

Archimedes brought forth the laws of flotation after thinking deeply over the matter for a long period of time. He got the solution in the bathroom and shouted “eureka”, which means “I have found it”. Bill Gates, who is extremely wealthy and one of the fathers of modern information technology, is a confirmed thinker. A story was once told about him, that while he was in deep thought one day, his mother called out – “Bill, Bill”, but he was lost in his thoughts. When he was eventually asked what he was doing, he replied: “I was thinking, don’t you think?” Limitless amounts of useful information can emanate from your mind, if you make out time to delve into it a little bit, or even much more deeper – than usual. The fact that you don’t take time to think over the issues of life, doesn’t mean that you have an opportunity to be careless! Settle down and calmly meditate, in order to release the treasures of ideas located on the inside part of you.

Your Outcome in Life Is Determined By What You Believe in; Faith or Fact

In Christian Bible, 2nd Corinthians 5:7 says: “For we walk by faith: not by sight”. The literal meaning of the above scripture is that we are meant to live our lives; make progress and carry out actions based on faith – which is the ultimate and unseen reality. Don’t live your life on the basis things which you can only see with your physical eyes. “Faith”, which is the ultimate truth, belongs to the spiritual world; while “facts” are only limited to the physical world which we see with our eyes. Faith is superior to, and stronger than fact! Fact is temporal and changeable but faith (truth) is eternal and unchangeable. Even history has shown that fact can become untrue, without divine or supernatural intervention. For example, it was a fact many years ago that malaria had no cure and many people died because of it; but that is no longer true today.

In the past, it was considered a fact that iron could neither fly nor float: but today, heavy tons of iron (in steel form) are floating and flying from one part of the world to the other in the form of ships and aircrafts – carrying both people and cargo wherever they wish to go to. In the past, there were no drugs for the cure of several diseases, but today there are so many types of drugs. If time can alter fact, how much more will your faith in destroy fact – in an instant! Despise all facts, and rather believe in the truth. Your physical experiences or that of other people should not guide your life’s journey. Believe in the ultimate truth about the supernatural ability that God gave man to turn unfavorable circumstances into favorable ones. Allow your faith and belief to guide you towards your God-given destiny.

The scripture in Romans 10: 17, the Bible says that: “The just shall live by faith”. This faith is based on how God sees ease and solutions to every situation and difficulty in this physical world. The scripture didn’t say that the just shall live by experience, night dreams, personal wisdom, skill or expertise! It said that the just shall live by faith! Many people elevate their experience, personal wisdom and skills above faith, ultimate truth and the power of God – to the extent that they constantly dwell in the realm of frustration and dissatisfaction. We have stated that ultimate truth is superior to fact, and a lot of people know that the real battle of a man lies between fact and truth. What is the difference between them? Well, fact is a natural reality which has evidence only to the physical senses; i.e. you can see, hear, feel, smell or touch it. Faith (or truth) on the other hand, is supernatural or spiritual reality; and is not always obvious to the body’s senses, i.e. – you might not be able to sense faith physically – but it’s real. The fact might be that – based on experience and expertise – there would be no hope, but the truth (faith) says: “launch out your heart with hope” and in many instances where faith was strong – the truth prevailed. Allow the truth to prevail in your life!
