“When you clear your head—when you still your rational mind enough to make room for your intuitive mind—you’re creating space for God to give you wisdom.”
A thought by Les Parrott, (2012-08-02) from his book, You're Stronger Than You Think: The Power to Do What You Feel You Can't (p. 22). Tyndale House Publishers. Kindle Edition.
I love legal pads. When there is a problem to be solved I many times write down 10 solutions on a legal pad and then go from there. It can be so easy to fill your mind with so much stuff though that you can’t solve the problem. Have you found that so? But Dr. Parrot is saying here that there is a need for us to clear our mind so that God’s wisdom can be shown.
We spend so much time in the rational mind – write down ten solutions – and not enough in the intuitive mind where God’s wisdom comes through. Sometimes we need to take that legal pad or an iPad and find a quiet place and just clear our mind and then just start writing what comes to us. To just let God’s wisdom speak into our situation.
Yes, He does use our rational mind. He created it but He also created our intuitive mind and He wants to use it. It is a gift from God that many people have not developed and appreciated. It has great value. It has great potential. Let God use it in you. But first clear your rational mind so it will come through. Why not let God use it in you.
So where do you need God’s wisdom today?
