MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in]
your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
GOD'S WAY OF GUIDING
[Part 5 of 11]
*____Now we find true spiritual
knowledge in this: only what is appropriated in the spirit [inner man] is spiritual knowledge; the rest is wholly the mental kind. Let us inquire a moment, how does God know things? How does He make His judgement? By what knowledge does He control
the universe? Does He ascertain with His mind like man? Does He need to think carefully before He understands? Does God depend upon philosophy, logic and comparison to know a matter?
Must He search and investigate before
He hits upon the solution? Is the Almighty compelled to rely upon His brain? Decidedly not. God has NO necessity to indulge in such "sweating" exercises. His knowledge and judgement is intuitive.
____As a matter
of fact intuition is the common faculty of all spiritual beings. The angels obey what they know as God's Will intuitively; they do not arrive at a conclusion by way of argument, reason or contemplation. The difference between knowing intuitively and knowing
mentally is immeasurable.
Upon this very distinction hangs the outcome of spiritual success or defeat. If had been intended that a believer's action or service was to be governed by rationalization and common sense,
no one would have ever have attempted to carry out those many glorious spiritual works of the past and the present, because ALL of them supersede human reasoning. Who would have dared do them if they had not first known God's Will intuitively?
