How does one explain to someone what they hear within their thoughts? Sometimes while I am meditating on various things an idea will surface in my thinking and I often wonder if I was the originator of the thought or perhaps the thought originated from a higher or greater source. I believe God exists and right now as I think about it I'm of the opinion that God is invisible. This invisible God, I believe, is made visible through the incarnation of the Word. In other words, Jesus Christ is the visible representation of the invisible God.

Sometimes I think we as humans are so wrapped up in what we see that we have a tendency to overlook that which we fail to see. I wonder if that idea can be applied to what we hear or fail to hear as well. At any rate this reflection has to do with how I heard a particular message from scripture. Philippians 4:19 says, "But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Not very long ago I was meditating on the idea that helping people has really become such a joy for me. It seemed the more I gave the more I was given to give. As this awareness became more pronounced these giving opportunities seemed to simply flow through my thoughts and meditations.

One day I was meditating on the amazement of this newfound expression of joy through giving. All of a sudden Philippians 4:19 came rushing into my thoughts. The only difference in how I had heard the passage before and how I was beginning to hear it had to do with hearing it in the first person. In other words, it was as though Jesus was speaking this passage to me and this is how I heard it, "I will supply all your needs according to my riches in glory." No longer do I have to take the apostle Paul's word for it for now I have heard it from the Source.
