Trust in the Lord with all your strength and he will direct your path. (insight) Proverbs 3:6

What we clearly see when we study Jesus is a man whose experiences, exposures, and environment had created intuition He could trust.  His relationship with His Father; His understanding of His purposes; His encounters with real needs of people; His investments of time and energy in the disciples; His service to others, and His strong sense of identity made Him free and successful in spontaneous situations.  When called to improvise, Jesus thrived because He had a strong adherence to a simple framework: love God and love people.  He was free even when under pressure because He was committed to never denying his loyalty and love for His Father and his love for  serving people.  “My food… is to do the will of him who sent me” (John 4:34) and the “Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve” (Mark 19:45) are the kinds of statements coming from the mouth of the God-Man that reflect the general character of His experiences and environments that shaped His intuition at any given moment.

This is what forms your identity and provides experiences that train your intuition.  Men who are committed to arranging their lives around these purposes are free in the fight because God’s way eliminates confusion and provides clear decisions and godly instincts for effectiveness.

Whether you’re sizing up a decision, a relationship, or a particular circumstance, God’s man, devoted fully to God’s purposes, will not need a long list of options. Instead, he will target what really matters based on his exposure and experience with God’s purposes.

Thank you Father for your insight through the teaching of your word.
