Thoughts have a taste. Each thought is accompanied by an energy according to its origin. If the thought comes from God, it brings peace and joy and promotes prayer. If it comes from the enemy, it brings confusion and does not harmonise with prayer.
Sometimes thoughts which come from God may be completely contrary to our psychological state. Yet they bring life and energy of the Spirit, and our prayer receives wings.
Despite its remarkable authority, the word of God is not imposed on us by force, but is offered and meant to provoke us to use our freedom because God wants us to embrace it freely. Thus, the Lord speaks to us ‘in proverbs and parables’ in order to prompt our human factor to desire to penetrate the meaning of the divine words. God created us from non-being, but He does nothing with us unless we collaborate with Him… We must show our zeal to understand the life-giving words of the Lord and the only way is to have ‘obedient ears’ and ‘good ground’.
