DOWNLOAD A GOD IDEA! Paul McGuire
DOWNLOAD GOD IDEAS INTO YOUR BRAIN
By Paul McGuire
Most people struggle in life under their own human power and intelligence. Depending upon a variety of factors such as early childhood environment, genetic intelligence, education, opportunity and will power, people succeed or fail in varying degrees. But, what if I told you there was a way that you could experience a divine download and receives God ideas into your brain? Imagine what your life could be like if you were operating with the supernatural wisdom of God as you faced life’s challenges. Since God is omniscient or all-knowing and since He knows the future before it happens, think of what could happen to an individual or nation that learned to tap into the wisdom of God.
First of all it is important to understand that your life is integrated into the greater system that we call our families, communities and nation and world. To one degree or another success is contingent upon the resources and opportunities that the greater system, which we will call the Network, provides. The old expression, “no man (or woman) is an island’ is certainly true. Just as nutritious fruit or vegetable receives its minerals from the soil in which it grows, so your life draws its substance from the larger network.
The network is an infinite operating system. The network did not appear randomly, it was produced by a Designer of Creator, which we will call the Personal Living God of the Universe. You and I live on planet earth, located in a solar system that ]consists of the Sun and eight planets that orbit around it, such as Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. You were chosen before the beginning of time to be here on earth during this exact time. In other words, you were predestined to be here!
Romans 8:21-30 " For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom He predestined, these He also called; whom He called, these He also justified; and whom He justified, these He also glorified."
Since God predestined you to be here, He wants to make sure you have all the wisdom, guidance and ideas you need to make your life work according to His will. So today no matter what challenges or opportunities you may be facing, God has the wisdom, guidance and ideas you need to make it happen. The question is, “How do you access those ideas?” How do you get a divine download?
There are many important principles that will enable you to regularly download God ideas. We could call them cosmic apps. But, two quick principles that will help you overcome today are these:
1. Clear your mind of the clutter, fear, doubts, confusion and all the things that could get in the way of God’s ideas. It’s like having a computer with a hard drive that is to full. You have to clean the hard drive and delete unnecessary files with the right software. In this case the right software is called the Word of God. You have to renew your mind daily with God’s Word. That means you have to read the Word, think about the Word, meditate on the Word and be doers of what the Word says. It is only when you do that, that you can receive God’s ideas into your mind.
“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:2
In practical terms you have to spend some time each day, even if it is just 15 minutes reading portions of God’s Word. If you don’t know where to start, Psalms 1 is a good place to start, or Mathew 1. Don’t worry about understanding every little thing you read at first, just start reading it. You can look stuff up later and you will discover the more you read, the more the Word of God will open up to you. Also, you can listen to the Word of God in your car or through any number of devices, the point is you are getting the Word into your mind. When the Word of God gets into your mind, it cleans out all those viruses that block you from experiencing the tremendous power that is released in your life from receiving God ideas!
2. Specifically ask God is prayer for His wisdom, guidance and ideas and keep on asking until you start to receive them
“And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.
If ye love me, keep my commandments. “ John 14:13-15
You simply ask God for what you need and be specific about exactly what kind of wisdom, guidance and ideas you need. Also, make sure that when you pray to God you spend a few minutes confessing any sin or something you may have done that could block the flow of communication. You acknowledge what you have done before God. You ask for His forgiveness and to be cleansed by His blood and you ask for the power to overcome whatever the sin is. If you ask Him to, He will forgive you! Also, praise Him and thank Him for some of the things He has already done for you. This does not have to be a long process. The key is to open the lines of communication between you and God. Then be real specific and ask Him for His wisdom and His ideas.
You may or may not get God ideas immediately, but you have now open up the app which will start the divine download and you will get God ideas. They will start to pop up in your mind in the most unexpected places. An idea may come to you suddenly out of the blue, in a conversation with a friend, a dream or while you are doing something else. God ideas most often come when they are least expected. But, you will know it is a God idea because you will know the idea is just too good to be your own idea. The idea is just beyond what you could have produced by yourself. The key is to learn how to keep the divine download coming.
