Well l have been reading a book by Beverly LaHaye The Spirit Controlled Woman. It talks on how God has wired each one of us and how that also contributes to our purpose and our walk with Him. I thought personalities are just someone’s theory until l critically did a survey on my self only to realize the way my personality is also has alot of effect in the way God reaches out to me and how l respond to things.
I am a Mel&Sag. So my Mel is the dominating very analytical, introverted and deep reflector. I love reading books.
Let me share a something, l used to wonder this God that speaks loud in an audible voice to others why does He also not do the same to me, why can’t l hear Him. I decided to pray and search and one day l remember God asking me do you understand why l have wired you the way l do do you understand the strengths l have given you are also my channels that l communicate to you through, do you understand also your strengths are annointings that l have placed in your life.
Woo!! Okay let me explain most Mel are deep reflectors they read alot so l realized when am studying reading books God speaks to me alot, ideas come thoughts and insights. I also realized since l write alot when l sit down to jot inspiration just comes and l put ideas thoughts into writing articles or blog. Well l also realized each season am in whenever l need wisdom on something God always directs me into a book His Word or a written book by a certain author and when l follow l get the answer right on.
The day l got this l don’t struggle l just got the knowledge on How God relates to me and became content so l guard my books and my space jealously. Most people don’t really know my introvert part but it doesn’t mean we don’t socialize it means we usually can’t stay long in gatherings we retrieve to breathe we like quietness we don’t understand noise and we love our space for in those spaces and quietness we hear Him well. I don’t limit God He can choose to use wider channels but l choose to understand. How many of you understand yourself? How many of you beautiful women know yourself.
I encourage you do a study on how God wired you so that you can learn also how to relate to others and have healthy relationships. Most of the inner and outer conflicts that we have if you look keenly are as a result of one not having enough knowledge of who you are and why you respond and react to situations the way you do.
Knowing your personality is not a theory that was just invented its a study to help you understand yourself and allow the Holy Spirit to influence who you are and use your strengths and skills to build others and for His Kingdom advancement.
Knowing myself has helped me so much to relate to others effectively handle conflicts more maturely and understand others and how to relate with them. I feel my relationships are more constructive and with a deeper meaning and more enriching and fulfilling. Knowing myself has helped me also in my personal walk with God.
