What Does The Bible Say About Intuition
“The heart of man is deceitful above all things,” the Bible says, “and desperately wicked.” But what does it mean for our hearts to be “deceitful“? We’re taught from an early age not to trust our instincts—we’re told that we should always question everything and only accept what we can prove. So if this is true, what does it mean when the Bible says that God gives us intuition? Is it a sign that our human nature is fundamentally flawed? Or does intuitive thinking have something useful to offer? In this post, we’ll take a look at how intuition plays out in life—including how you can use your own intuition to better understand others’ thoughts and feelings without having to ask them directly.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
We can find a lot of wisdom in the Bible. In fact, all scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, and instruction in righteousness. This means that the Bible will not only teach us how to live better lives; it also helps us understand what behavior is right or wrong according to God’s standards.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith.” Galatians 5:22-23
The fruit of the Spirit is something we need to watch out for because it can lead us away from God. It’s also a gift from God and not something we can earn or do in our own power!
In the last days perilous times shall come.
In the last days perilous times shall come. (2 Timothy 3:1)
The last days are perilous, and they will be dominated by Satan and his antichrist. Perilous times will be in the final years of their reign (Revelation 13:3-4; 17:10).
And he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken.
There are many instances in which the Bible speaks of the importance of believing what the prophets have said. For example:
- “But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder, and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.” -I Samuel 3:9
- “And everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself, just as He is pure.” -I John 3:3
The word translated as “purifies” here is the Greek verb katharizo meaning to cleanse or clear away impurities. The believer must first believe God’s word before he or she can begin to live it out!
Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not
We are to be diligent in our work. We are to be faithful in our work. We are to be persistent in our work. We are to be determined in our work. We are to be resolute in our work. And we must also remain steadfastly committed to the task at hand. Many times, like Paul, we will feel overwhelmed by the enormity of what we have been called upon to do; but that should never deter us from doing what needs to be done!
In other words: Even if it’s hard…it’s still worth doing!
For we are a sweet savor of Christ unto God in them that are saved and in them that perish.
The Bible says: “For we are a sweet savor of Christ unto God in them that are saved and in them that perish” (2 Corinthians 2:15).
This means that when you help someone, you are making a sweet smell or aroma that God can smell. If you help people with their problems and they feel better, then God will smell the good work that you have done for your neighbor, friend or family member. You might not see any evidence of what you have done; however God will see it because He is the one who knows all things (see 1 John 3:20).
God does not want us to be selfish but instead He wants us to reach out and help others through kindness and love. When we do this then His Spirit will come upon us so that we can love one another as He loves us (see John 13:34-35).
To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak; I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
The word “weak” doesn’t refer to one’s physical strength, but rather their spiritual and emotional state. When a person is weak, they are lacking in faith and confidence. They may feel hopeless, fearful or defeated; they may be easily influenced by others without the ability to think for themselves; they could even be considered gullible by those around them. This can manifest in many ways: lack of self-esteem paired with depression, anxiety and low self-worth; an inability to trust others due to past experiences with abuse or betrayal; difficulty making decisions because of uncertainty about options available at hand (e.g., choosing which college major should I pursue?).
It’s important to remember that Jesus was also human—in fact he came down from heaven into this world as man—so we shouldn’t expect him not have experienced weakness while here on earth! He was born in Bethlehem (a small town) instead of Jerusalem (the capital city) because King Herod had ordered all newborn boys killed who were 2 years old or younger in order prevent any possible threat against his throne after finding out about Jesus’ prophecy through angels Gabriel & Michael saying how God would send him back down again later on Earth so that everyone could see him clearly before returning back up into heaven where he belongs forevermore…
Go thy way; behold I send thee forth as a lamband thou shalt turn the heart of the fathers to the children and the heart of the children to their fathers lest I come and smite the earth with
Jesus is the Lamb of God.
Jesus turned the hearts of the children back to their fathers.
Jesus is the way, the truth and the life.
Jesus is also a light that shines in darkness, that you may see and perceive what is eternally true. He has come into being by me as one who knows him and has seen him as an inner perception of his own soul’s eye; he has been known spiritually by those who have walked with him along life’s pathway – all those who strive to know him through prayerful meditation on his words – but only those people who earnestly desire such knowledge gain it in their hearts.
Intuition is a gift from God and something we need to watch out for.
Intuition is a gift from God and something we need to watch out for. We all have it, but it’s not always reliable.
- It may seem like it’s telling us one thing when really another happens instead.
- We can get carried away with our gut feelings and make decisions that cause problems later on.
In order for your intuition to be most effective, you must use your mind along with your heart and soul when making decisions based on what you feel inside.* This includes evaluating the circumstances surrounding how you came up with these feelings in the first place.* If there’s any doubt about whether they’re accurate or trustworthy at all, listen closely to those doubts—they may just be trying to tell you something important!
