The story is longer then the importance of the point… so I’ll get right to it. Someone once told me, “The difference between you and I is you believe and I know.” As I sat there saying to myself, “You don’t know me!”… my Spirit began to reveal the prophetic-ness of that statement. The conversation was a combination of many different topics that spread over a four hour period - from why we do what we do, to where we’re going based on where we’ve been. But this stuck in my head and is something I’ve shared with others (my friends)… like you.
We have been taught to believe in things; i.e. hope, our dreams, our religion, our relationships, ourselves… and of course, God. Belief is a strong feeling based on past revelations examined and taught through the interpretation of lessons. (ooooweeeee that was deep). It is the underpinning of just about everything that we do, have done, and will do – this belief however leaves room for happenstance. However when we know something, no space is left, the cup is full and running over. When you know your spouse, those whom you have a relationship with, when you know what is (not what you believe), there is an unbelievable condition of tangible trust and faith (God’s love for us). This condition is never replaced… it comes with every thought and experience. For example believing in God and knowing in God are two different things. Believing in yourself and knowing yourself are two different things based on action. A belief can be changed, a knowing can only be proven.
So, knowing that I am that I am, and believing that I will soon become that through (whatever it takes to become that I am that I am etc…) … are the difference between, action (I will) and thought (I’ll try).
When we know God and know that all things work for the good, there is no doubt or hope that things will work out… because we KNOW God (not His thoughts or plans necessarily)… but we KNOW that we KNOW – that’s the best way I can say it. Same goes for knowing ourselves, not just believing in ourselves. See what I mean?
Perhaps I should write a little book on this. This is deep stuff… well I think. :0) Let me know what you think.
