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.

God’s Greatness: Within His Books and Everything Around You!

Most of the time, people likely don’t give any thought about God, and his greatness. They are too engrossed in their own activities, good or bad, to a point that they hardly think about the trees, birds, other beautifully created beings and objects created by God. Creation gives a clue to the greatness of God beyond what we can only see. Nowadays (arguably more than at any other time in history), mankind unconsciously and unintentionally takes the back seat when considering the common things of life. This causes them to close their own minds from seeing the greatness of God which is exposed through the simplicity of observing his creatures and his creation. In reality, the follower(s) of any religion (or believers in God), can sense much of God’s greatness by reading the contents of their respective “holy books” or “words of God”. A lot of mysteries and miracles (backed up with historical evidence), can be read and deeply felt from reading and meditating on those words in the holy books. Coupled with reading the words of God — is the intriguing experience of beholding the products of God’s amazing power; i.e. the tangible things you can see, hear and feel around you.

Over the ages, and up till this moment, the words in the “holy books” show a direct signpost from God’s creation — towards his immensely great power. From the time he created the first man, many of his followers (on a different page from those who disbelieve) gained extraordinary insight about God’s mysterious powers of manifesting his thoughts in physical forms. Saint Paul was loud and audible when he said: “since the creation of the world, the hidden characteristics of God have been clearly understood by the things he created around us”. Even stone-hearted disbelievers like Pharaoh and Nebuchadnezzar (just to name a few people who attempted to exalt themselves above God), were forced to accept God’s sovereignty when the chips went down. At the end of the battle between little Pharaoh and God, Pharaoh lost every important thing he had because he went against God’s order, by keeping the Israelites as slaves in captivity. When the sun set on the battle between tiny Nebuchadnezzar and almighty God, he (Nebuchadnezzar) was changed into another form, and driven away from people to eat grass like an ox.

One of the most touching stories in the Christian Bible, is the one that narrates how God spoke to Job out of a whirlwind; and what he (God) specifically told him (Job). Rather than being sorry and apologetic to Job for the hardship he was going through, God talked to him about the beauty in creation as expressed through various types of animals he (God) created. This story shows God’s own decision to direct and inspire man towards looking at the creative side of life, instead of concentrating on hardship. It seemed like God was indirectly telling Job to view his (God’s) greatness in order to gain the power to wipe away his (Job’s) own tears. Well, at the end of the battle against adversity, all of Job’s tears were wiped away. In truth, the mystery, greatness and splendor of God’s creatures, along with creation, should actually draw us closer to God: they should make us adore him and talk to others about him. Nowadays, you find that that’s not so much the case because a major part of mankind is too fixed on their “own” thing(s); forgetting that God made them as a part of the beautiful, and much bigger creation.

True Prosperity Depends on How Well You are Connected With God

Any human being who is genuinely connected with God (the creator of all things), would have ultimate peace and true prosperity. God is spirit! We can’t see him! In fact, his invisibility makes many people feel like he doesn’t exist. But he’s there! Right out there! He’s connected with men and women who also play (or played) their own little part in maintaining that strong connection. Through the ages, God has been close to quite a number of people, too many for us to recall from history; but one important thing to take note of – is that – irrespective of any challenges encountered, irrespective of any attempt(s) that enemies put up against those connected with God, they conquer at the end of the day. Another remarkable quality that people of God have, is that genuine feeling of rest, peace, and sense of fulfillment – which they can’t have otherwise. Their foundation doesn’t rest on material things: on the material aspect of creation. Anything that has a foundation outside of God is just temporal vanity, and would pass away or cease to exist from a particular date in the near future. Whatever anyone has, no matter how small it may appear in the eyes of other people, it would always be sufficient to accomplish every plan that God has called or destined for that person to carry out in this world.

Everything that God gave everyone at birth, and while they are alive, is a seed which has to be sown, fertilized, continuously catered for, and groomed to maturity. We must prosper if we have the mind-set that – with what we were given – we can efficiently accomplish God’s purpose for our lives. Plant your seed and it must produce a bountiful harvest, good or bad. True prosperity and abundance are beyond the acquisition of material possessions: it isn’t defined by the number of cars, industries, houses, lands, assets, women, or property that anyone has; otherwise those who have the largest amount of material possessions in the world, would always be the most happy, joyful and fulfilled people. Unfortunately, most materially successful personalities haven’t been so happy, neither have they felt inwardly fulfilled in their lives.

Read through history and you will observe that a lot of popular people, with an abundance of “earthly possessions,” have had high blood pressures, gone nuts, or even committed extreme acts like suicide! Many of them have been dependent on drugs in order to try and control their minds and feelings. These few descriptions show that man cannot depend solely on what he externally possesses – if he wants to have real joy and livelihood! Many people who have/had great possessions, were really empty on the inside; if not they wouldn’t resort to empty remedies like drugs and suicide. The treasures of this world all have their expiry dates. And really, not all that glitters is gold. There are many men and women who have been frustrated in life because they measured themselves by the world’s symbols of prosperity. In all your prosperity, or lack of it, let your total dependence be on God, then you’ll have everlasting treasures that no amount of money can buy.

Traits That Can Kill The Attraction A Man Has For A Woman

Similar to how women test men is the fact that men have the instinct of testing women as well. Most men test women so as to know – in time – how a particular lady might react towards certain conditions. The manner in which a lady responds to the tests a man throws at her, reveals how matured or patient she can handle the relationship on the long run. Unfortunately, many of these tactics reveal the bad side of most women and end up killing the initial attraction a man might have for a woman. There are certain things a lady must be thoughtful about, and put into practice in order not to kill her chances with a man she likes.

Any lady should avoid being jittery or jealous about other ladies. Many quality men lose attraction for any lady who makes it a habit of being intimidated or jealous of other women. It’s a great turn-off for men! Being intimidated exposes how low your self-esteem is before a man, and it goes on to show that you are not satisfied with your own self. It further radiates the fact that you are insecure to such a point that you habitually envy other ladies. Quality women are not intimidated or jealous about anybody or anything, and this makes them to have a high self-esteem. Don’t make a habit of totally neglecting your professional duties or commitments because of a man. A lot of women put too much effort into dating; they finally end up losing their career or focus in life. Don’t lose yourself into any relationship to an extent whereby you only think about a guy and his life – most of the time.

Many women make a great mistake when they always expect guys to forfeit their professional duties, in order to spend their time with them. Some of them think that a man is supposed to call them all the time; and they actually start to feel anxious when he doesn’t do what they expect him to do. Such an attitude only ends up killing the available attraction because the man feels no breath of fresh air or freedom in the relationship. Another attraction-killer can be created when a woman doesn’t have the capability to put her money-making life, or financial independence, in order. This could contribute greatly to a lady becoming or being emotionally unstable. It’ll also make the man to head towards an opposite direction, or quit the relationship altogether.

As a lady, do your utmost best to have a life of your own, and don’t always expect a man to cater for your life. If you don’t strive to be a little bit independent, a guy will get to feel the burden you create when you totally rely on him. It’s a sad fact that a lot of women regularly expect things from a man; things which they could easily obtain for themselves. A woman will feel happier and have high self esteem when she automatically takes care of most things in her own life. This will make her to naturally radiate inner strength, and become a more emotionally balanced individual who is naturally attractive to any quality man.
