Before Your Brain...Was Your Heart!

You have an unction from the Holy One, and you know all things.” ~ 1 John 2:20

Before your brain, nervous system or eyes was your heart.  As you were being divinely shaped in your mother's womb, your heart was the first organ that began to function and lead the way.  Could it be that this is the way our Creator intended our lives to be led?

What many call intuition or a "gut-feeling," for the Child of God, the Bible identifies this redeemed-enhanced knowing, as an "unction from the Holy One."

Slow down.  Pray.  Listen.  God is speaking.  Sometimes, it seems, His voice is loud and clear in your ear.  Other times, you have to really lean in because He's whispering with His "still small voice."  Still other times, I would even go as far to say, most of the time in our daily lives, He speaks to us through unction;

  • An inward witness of His indwelling Spirit.
  • A knowing in your inner-man
  • A convincing confidence in your heart/spirit that you have knowledge of God's wisdom and direction.

Your mind, nerves and senses certainly have a vital place in your life.  Mostly, behind the leading of your heart.  Your heart receives and responds to the unction of God's Holy Spirit.  "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God." (Romans 8:14)
