Spiritual Genius

Spiritual Genius What is your Spiritual IQ? Can we change our current Spiritual IQ? Let’s first investigate methods of increasing normal IQ. Dr. Win Wenger, Ph.D. shares one method of raising your IQ includes recording, either verbally or in writing, thirty to fifty ideas and observations per day for a week. Research proves this method takes the participant half way to genius in seven days. This task’s primary challenge hinges on the diligence of recording for seven consecutive days. Persistence is fundamental to achievements. The list may include the color of the sky, cloud patterns, flower color patterns in a yard, specific placing of wall ornaments and designs, as well as various intuitive thoughts you receive during the day. The act of recording ideas and observations increases your ability to recognize and identify objects, events, principles, and relationships in the world and those with whom you associate, as well as yourself. Consequently, you increase your ability to recognize and identify factual patterns and associations in all you encounter. Greater details result in greater gains of intelligence. A similar exercise boosts your Spiritual IQ. How well do you recognize God’s presence, voice, and blessings in your life? Record, verbally or in writing, thirty to fifty ideas and observations per day for a week. Most likely, you will continue this exercise long after the seven days passes. The list may resemble the above list, except this list glorifies God. Additionally, you may include gratitude such as another day of health for you and your family, how a doctor treated or prevented a health disaster, a financial blessing. I will write later about the significance of a financial spiritual journal. I have discussed this topic through e-mail and other documentation, but have not yet placed those thoughts on this site. For example, record God’s involvement in chance encounters for a mutually beneficial personal or professional relationship. Record intuitive thoughts—as discussed in several other of my blog posts—as this enhances thought calibration and records Godly wisdom which may vanish as quickly as it appears if ignored. The act of diligently, and specifically recording God’s voice and activity in every aspect of your life, including those with whom you encounter and associate, increases your Spiritual IQ. As outlined in scripture, an increased Spiritual IQ increases optimism, mental, and physical health. Proverbs states, A merry heart is good medicine. I Thessalonians 5:16—21 instructs us to, Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. Do not quench the Spirit; do not despise prophetic utterances. But examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil. Perpetual—ongoing—rejoicing and thankfulness requires recognizing and identifying objects, events, principles, and relationships through which God provides in our life. Our rejoicing in the Lord is proportional to our recognizing his presence and voice in our lives. Begin recording blessings and intuitive thoughts today, grab a voice recorder, a notebook and pen, or open a Word or Excel document now. Regardless of your current relationship with Christ, this activity will create even better awareness, gratitude, and joy because of God’s work in your life. Become a Spiritual Genius by the power of the Holy Spirit. See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ! Rick E. Meyer See, Believe, Achieve Inc.
