The whole purpose of the Scriptures is to teach us how to be governed by the Holy Spirit from within, so that the outward adversities do not cause us stress. Every person who is positive toward the Word of God is taught by the Spirit of God. It is important that when we receive the Word, we allow it to be transferred into the five parts of the soul. Otherwise, it will never become a means of self-governing under the providence of God's will. As we mature in our walk with God, the Word counsels us daily and brings amazing provisions into every detail of life, controlling our mind, emotions, volition, conscience, and selfconsciousness- every part of our soul.
Psalm 18:44 says that the people of God will obey as soon as they hear. Every time we hear or read the Word of God, we are presented with a divine challenge from divine viewpoint. The minute we perceive it, we must make a decision to receive it and obey. That is our part. We have an eternal destiny, an eternal portion with Christ forever. When we hear the Word of God, we need to decide to listen in meekness and in humility, mixing faith with what we hear. Mixing faith with what we hear is the part of the process that brings faith-rest.
