I am seeing a pattern here in our growth in Spiritual things. In the beginning I was introduced to spiritual things and they were foreign to my human nature. I moved on to accepting them as good knowledge. I began to practice this new knowledge and it improved my life. It then became my spiritual belief system. It is a constant choice to live out of my spirit and bring heaven to earth. When I do that, the glory of God is manifest. When I choose the human understanding not so much.
These days I am experiencing The Holy Spirit schooling me on apprehending spiritual truths as my possessions. More valuable than silver ,gold, diamonds or pearls of great price. The absolute truth of Him inside of me , the hope of Glory. The Holy Spirit says I am capable of this. the disciples knew this place well and walked in the possession of that truth.
Like you I struggle with completely giving up my natural human understanding of this world and life.
I am thinking the first step is willingness then devotion to His love for me. His love for me is ground zero for all things. In hurtful things I sometimes loose focus. The Spirit of Christ in me , the hope of Glory never does.
