We are a very self-obsessed society these days. “It’s all about me” is today’s motto. You ask most people nowadays what they want most and they’ll answer “to be happy”. People look for happiness, not looking to be content. Those who will look for happiness will never find it. Usually people want material possessions in order to be happy. “If I only got this, I’ll be happy.” Unless that person works out on making their souls right, they can never find happiness. They might as well search for the yeti if they don’t deal with their soul. Since many people don’t have a good grasp of their own soul, they are unhappy. The soul is a peculiar thing. It’s quiet. And the more a person ignores their soul, the quieter it becomes. At the same time, that soul will definitely make itself known. The person will feel uncomfortable and restless among other things. This is the soul’s way of attracting attention.

Every human being has three entities within them. There is the human mind, the human heart, and the God-given soul. The human mind deals with things such as ego, believing in things it only sees, logic, and the desire or antipathy to fit in with the crowd. The human heart deals with the cares of this world, sympathy, love, and passion. The soul we all must take with us knows always what is right and what is wrong. Those who are in good touch with their soul are the ones who seem to always do the right thing.

The human heart and the human mind always disagree. They’re polar opposites of one another. The human heart and the soul usually agree while the mind and the soul usually disagree. The flaws of the heart is looking to explain the good things out of everything or showing kindheartedness to those even if it’s making them worse or does them no good. Giving charity to someone who’s hooked on drugs knowing what they’ll spend their money on is the wrong thing to do. Thinking you’re more compassionate than God and His laws is foolhearty. Because of the human heart possibly dominating your thoughts, you cannot take into consideration that there are more important things than one’s temporary, human body.

The human mind in this day and age is what seems to dominate people’s thoughts. Most are ruled by the mind today. Usually for a period of time after becoming an adult, the mind will take hold over a person. Being that the mind desires to keep control over a person, it’s hard to let it go. Even with questions like “why am I here” that everyone of us deals with on occasion, the mind will try to keep the person from actually looking. If the person looks to see why they are here, that may lead them on a journey of rediscovering their soul. Something the mind does not want them to do.

Because most of us are headstrong, we have little recollection of our souls even though the soul is trying to get each of us to notice it. Afterall, it is the only thing you take with you. Each of us has to answer for our souls. Nobody’s heart or mind is in danger of losing everything when all is said and done. It is our very souls on the line.

What must we do to get a hold of our souls? Don’t soulsearch. Don’t look to be happy. Don’t try to find yourselves. You want to make those bad feelings to go away? You want to be content and actually be happy? Then just drop everything. Let everything go. All these thoughts of striving to be happy you must let go in order to be happy. Complicated eh? It’s not as complicated as it sounds. Even with nearly everyone having the spirit of slumber, the Bible has the answers for you to find yourself. When you are able to foresake man’s influence on the Bible, realize God’s always right, and listen to your conscience you can get a good hold of your soul. Through Christ, God has put out the welcome mat. It’s up to you to realize that God is all-wise, and despite today’s message, His ways are not outdated or antiquated. God is Alpha and Omega-timeless.

Since most everyone really is only here to make a decision, one must prepare themselves to make the right decision. When you reach the point of no return, which is it’s nearly impossible for you to make the wrong decision, you will be content and thus happy because of your choice in Him. You’ll have answers to many of your mysteries if you do the work, for God rewards those who diligently seek Him. You’ll know what you’re here to do. You don’t think God will reward you for getting to that point? Trust me, He will.

    Like your article on happiness but happiness is found by loving other people and them loving us . You cannot buy happiness it is a gift from God.

    I do believe when someone makes their soul right that God will give that person happiness or contention as a reward. Everyone loves someone and has someone love them. Everyone. One must make their soul right in order to really be content, otherwise they will be always filled with questions they don’t have the answers to.

    soulsearching to me used to be finding the most amazing pair of shoes to wear. Now well, It is soul surgery and God is the Surgean. NOT A PRETTY SIGHT. But oh so necessary. I am actually so grateful for the cancerous tumors being removed and replaced with love.

    Do we all currently have a spirit?  We all have a soul inside us to begin with but 1st Corrithians 12 says that all spiritual gifts come from the Holy Spirit.  So the Holy Spirit would have absolute control of every spirit and I’m wondering if we get a spirit at a certain point and not just automatically created with one.  Also what part does the thinking ability?  Spirit or soul?

    • Jesse Norman says:

      Our souls and spirits are the same thing. Once we were created in the previous age, so was our soul/spirit, and so began each of our existences. God controls our souls to an extent through the Holy Spirit. The spirit of slumber is an example. No one increases in wisdom without His permission, but a person can do things that has God decide to reveal things to that person. God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Does God or the Holy Spirit control all of our thoughts? Absolutely not. We all have our own conscience. Not obeying our conscience allows us to sin. Once we gain in wisdom, the soul will have a louder voice. If we continue down the right path, then more of our thoughts are controlled by our souls, which always knows the right things to do. For the elect, it’s different. At some point, a person is made to answer their calling. If they refuse, then depending on their destined job, they will be made to answer their call through a physical interference, such as Jonah and Paul. But then again there is Balaam, the greatest failure of any prophet, and was eventually killed for his continued disobedience to God, but that’s because his job, while important, was not ‘Jonah’ important, or ‘Paul’ important. The only one I know 100% is also one of the elect has failed greatly, which has me worried. Her job is important, but it’s not ‘Paul’ important. She refused to answer her incessant calling, now there’s no repairing her situation. She has failed.

        I’m sorry to hear about your friend.  I feel I lag behind at times.  What type of oil does a person anoint themselves with?  In Exodus 30:32 after it describes how to make the oil it says not to put it on a man’s flesh.  Also what did Jesus mean when He says you must be born of water and spirit?  I’m assuming He meant you must receive the Holy Spirit to be born of spirit?  Also 1st Corrithians 15:45 when he says the first man Adam was made a living soul that is in reference to this earth age Adam correct?  With that he says the last Adam being made a quickening spirit, quickening I’m assuming is make alive again.  So is he saying the first soul is still mortal being the corruptible body and when it has to do with quickened he means the incorruptible bodies those worthy get after the 7th trump?  Thank you.

        I’m assuming the oil was to be put onto only those who were to be anointed. That oil was intended to be used throughout the days. Saul was anointed, as were the other kings until Israel fell away. It wasn’t made for most men, unless there was another oil for men, but I don’t recall reading such a thing. What Jesus meant was to abandon the ways of the human flesh, which Paul also made mention of many times. As far as water goes, water washes away uncleanness; to wash the sins of the past away. The reference to Adam was from this age. Before this age, but after the first age, Adam was just a soul. When he was put into human flesh, he became a living soul. Quickening is alive, yes. To make alive, to be precise. Yes, those who have passed with God’s glory will receive the incorruptible flesh first.
