The question above came from my Spiritual Father and mentor last month.
He was explaining why we have so many issues facing us today and attributed the problem to Knowledge. Yes Knowledge.
To explain better from the view of my family, Adam and Eve ate the fruit and indeed received knowledge. It is only after eating this fruit did they realize that they were naked. Before then; they were at peace. No knowledge on nudity. Soon after eating the fruit they heard God walking about and went and heed. God calls out to Adam.Asking where he is and his response is interesting.
He responded by saying he was hiding in the tress because he was naked. And God asks him the question. “Who told you, you’re naked?”
Another way as my Spiritual Father and Mentor brought out, “Who told you, you’re poor?” “Who told you, you are sick?” “Who told you, you’re not getting married?” “Who told you, you’re business idea cannot work?”
Really who told you?
And most important, why did or do you listen to that voice?
The voice that speaks over your life, is the voice that determines your destiny.
I think it would be wise to take time out of your life and ask and answer those questions. Especially if you are following a voice over your life that has no success to it, is not making progress in any area let alone the one you are perusing.
What type of knowledge are you letting into your life? Your heart, your family, your career, your children, your work or business, your mind and your environment. Is it moving you forward impacting lives, changing history or remaining stagnant with a bad attitude to boot.
Who are you listening to and why?
