When we’ve been in or have come from a place of adversity, we can spiritually discern certain behaviors one or others may exhibit. As well, we’re able to recognize certain behaviors of those we’re closely related to. Because of heavy association, we are able to put a tag on what they may be going through.

I have been blessed to experience these parallels in behavior, both spiritually and physically, discerned in a place. In either recollection, it’s an unspoken field of communication. What is learned determines what one will do with what he or she understands. It is a perspective view in which wisdom would have us to be fruitful in our knowing. For certain, I can’t deny the heart of any situation.

I’ve been in such places that I was aware of others who’ve struggled with the intangibles of the mind or were diagnosed with a same illness. I recognized familiar behavior as I looked on and saw myself in others who seemed to experience mental attacks that I’ve gone through.

On the other hand, I’ve been in similar settings that were conducive in arrangement of the door the enemy kicks at, although I’d not been diagnosed with a same illness as another was. I could see a parallel in behavior and the behavior of others who were gathered in the room. It was almost as if I could hear their thoughts. Their behavior spoke volumes and was indicative to my own personal experiences with adversity. Their behavior called out the enemy and showed me what those close to me in the room were going through. On many levels, I heard what wasn’t spoken.

Even though adverse situations may not all together be exactly the same, being in similar places is adjacent to the enemy trying to detain us. We must be aware of what’s causing emotions to try and run an onslaught of negativity. The darkness of this world is from many worlds. Emotions are from different times and places, events in our lives, and spirits that travel transcending time.

Don’t ever give up no matter what the adversity is that you face. Our conclusions are minute compared to the plan God has purposed for our lives. May we wait and see the salvation of the Lord in the land of the living.

“Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.” — Ephesians 6:14-18

All humanity is searching and the answers are in Jesus Christ. Through His many ways of revelatory knowledge, and the call of God to a receptive heart, they are revealed. May we understand the unspoken word through our life’s experiences. And understanding is established within us by staying the course through life’s ups and downs. May staying the course reveal to us spiritual keys to bless others by letting them know they’re not alone. And we express what our struggles have entailed and the height of our triumphs in Christ. With detail and precision of what we speak, there’s a key word or phrase that others long to hear from us because it confirms an establishment for them that will indeed be the reason for their exit from a place of adversity. It is the beginning of their part in the revolutionary edification of the saints of God.

This is the rhythm of the gospel character and the sound of the word of God exemplified in your life.
