Spiritual Logic

People who are strong in scripture are normally less fluent in spiritual giftings and they need to press in for more spiritual gifts.
These people are more left brained, logical, analytical, less subjective, and more expressive in quoting and understanding scripture. They have a harder time expressing their feelings, especially on an emotional level. Their comfort zones are in organizing facts, numbers and hands on functions that build things like chemistry, engineering and mechanics. They study how things relate and understand the basics of cause and effect. They are able to visualize their goal and then use the facts of cause and effect to obtain it.
The Lord is drawing us near with an increased urgency and sense of hunger for the supernatural so we may also function in the spiritual gifts. Operating in spiritual gifts is a fulfilling experience that bypasses the analytical brain and meets the longing of one’s heart and soul. The scripture tells us to love the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind and strength. (Mark 12:30) God is wanting a balance of all parts to connect as a divine marriage in our relationships with Him so that we grow up into the fullness of Jesus Christ.
One of the keys for increasing spiritual gifts is to learn to come into a oneness with God. You have to recieve him as your personal savior, it is your relationship that matters, how you worship him. (I John 4:19) This takes trust to be willing to open up and be vulnerable to the life the Lord is bringing to us. The power to receive is the most important part of getting past doubt, hesitation, fear, and concern for loss of control. All of these are obstacles to operating in spiritual gifts. God has been waiting on us to fulfill this scripture: Ezek 36:26-27 NKJV
I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh.
have found that people who are highly creative do not enjoy reading if it is to learn facts. They enjoy reading stories more because they filter what they read through their soul and emotions. I like to study and pick apart the scriptures,Instead of studying the scripture like usual, consider listening to the Lord through reading headings.Headings help us find themes that are a framework where everything can be placed in order to make sense.
When you begin to read scripture on a personal level, it comes to life in a different way than studying, it comes to life on a heart level where the Spirit of God can touch your feelings and soul.
When you underline something, it is because you have read it and it hit home. If it hit home once, and you turn to it again, chances are the Lord is walking you around the block until it becomes a part of your daily life.
