Do you struggle to believe that everything responds to the person of God in union with your person?
The created universe … all of reality … is personality-based.
Not the popular sense of personality: “She has a bright personality” or “He is a Type-A personality.” But personality in the sense of the essence of what it is to be a person: conscience, intellect, identity, emotion, will.
Is it not an off-the-chains hoax to think that all that we see and know is merely materialistic, based upon random chance?
All of reality, unseen and seen, must be sourced in personality. Intelligent personality.
And we also discover from history, the study of sacred scripture, and even our own fledgling personal experience, that all of reality responds to personality – the person of the Creator in union with the person of man.
This is where insight, belief and prayer come in.
Dallas Willard writes that prayer “is coming to One who has repeatedly invaded human history and continues to do so. It is intelligently working with him to accomplish ends that fulfill his purposes in creation and in fostering human life upon the earth … (The Divine Conspiracy).”
Could we ever over-value prayer potential? Isn’t this synergistic? Intelligently working with Him to accomplish outcomes.
The Creator-human relationship: oneness … conversation … intelligence … desire and intention … exertion of will.
Ask Him for the grace and strength to pray with insight.
Q4U: Do you struggle to believe that everything responds to the power of personality – the personhood of God in union with your person? If your belief point ascended to this level, what difference could it make?
