Make It Subconscious

Last week I was watching an interesting sermon. The pastor was talking about the power of God, and how most people are aware of His mighty, miracle-working power. However, the pastor added that, even though almost everyone is aware of how powerful God is and that He can use that power to bless them, most people don’t live accordingly. Instead, they live as if they are fighting their daily battles alone and relying on their own strength. Obviously, that makes things much more difficult for them.

I can’t sit here and tell you honestly that I always spend my life relying on God’s power. There are still days where my focus is on the problem, obstacle, or the work that has to be done. Instead of being aware of God’s presence and relying on His mighty assistance that is right there with me, I forge ahead in my own weak power (or should I say lack of power). Over time I have learned though, that I don’t have to fight alone, and instead of just knowing of God’s presence and power, I am much more aware to let go and let God. Things seem to always work out perfectly when I do that, and that is no exaggeration.Β 

I have found that the key to not only knowing God’s power but having the awareness to make use of it, is to lodge His truth and His word in my subconscious mind. I have written other articles recently about Bible references to the heart, and how I believe when those writers talk about the heart, they are referencing the subconscious mind. I reference some of these Bible verses in those articles, but one is “as a man thinks in his heart, so is he” from Proverbs 23:7. This is one of my favorites because it verifies for me that whatever someone believes subconsciously is what they act out in reality. If someone believes deep in their subconscious that they are surrounded by God’s love and power, and have it accessible to them in all situations in life, they act on that belief. The result is a more confident, successful life. Even when negative or difficult situations come up, these people who have the subconscious knowledge of God’s protection, provision, and guidance always seem to get through them successfully.Β Another excellent proverb (3:5) is to “trust in the Lord with all your heart.” Again, when you have a deep subconscious belief that you can trust God with anything, you live your life more powerfully, and you lack the worry and fear that brings most people down.

I remind you once again that it is great to have conscious knowledge of God’s love, power, grace, and truth. But to really experience those things in your life, you need to make that knowledge subconscious, and deep in your heart. There are several ways to do this. My advice would be to find what works best for you. One way is to constantly affirm God’s word. Find Bible verses that resonate most with you and repeat them constantly during the day. A great time to do this is also at night, right before you are ready to fall asleep. That’s when affirmations and suggestions become subconscious more easily and without resistance. Another thing I like to do is, as I am saying these affirmations, to visualize God’s power around me. I also visualize the successful outcomes I desire. The good thing about that is, if I know and trust that God is involved in the situation, I can feel peaceful even if things don’t work out exactly as I anticipated. I have full trust that it will either work out the way I want or better! One other way to make God’s truth subconscious is simply to pray and meditate. The more you meditate, the more you automatically experience His presence. And God says throughout the Bible that you are always welcome to ask Him for guidance. There is nothing wrong in asking for His help in having His truth securely placed deep in your heart (subconscious mind). He would love to help you with that because when you live a more powerful and successful life, guess who gets the glory? That’s right. God is glorified when you prosper, and “He delights in the prosperity of His child.”(Psalm 35:27).

Remember, once you hold an idea as a subconscious belief, you will automatically act on it. That is how life goes. So don’t just know God and HIs power are with you. I mean, really know it! Make it so that it is a subconscious belief, and you will live in power and excellence during good times, and even difficult ones trusting God all the way. Enjoy the blessings πŸ™‚

  1. I agree that you must accept guidance within your subconscious mind to truly feel the deep security and love of god. I find great comfort and strength in the psalms as affirmations. Nothing has quite had the same powerful effect for me personally πŸ™‚

      Thanks so much for the comment. The psalms are great encouragement, and I regularly affirm several myself. Your words are so true about the deep security and love of God. And when it’s subconscious, you live it out so much easier.

    So beautifully written and articulated!

    I appreciate the timing in your message as I have been going through some of these similar things in my own mind (especially more today). Throughout life, I have been reminded that there will be trials and tribulations, events that will shape our character and change our hearts. In the middle of the storm, difficult times and challenging moments, one’s physiology can really change (I know from experience). Learning not to be discouraged and continue to trust will help keep the mind, the spirt, heart and thoughts on the right track.

    Yes, we all have these days, I know. Our response to the current situation will determine whether or not we focus on the the problem, or in finding a solution, working towards healing, deeper meaning and understanding, forgiveness and releasing. Above all, acknowledge Him in all things for we cannot see that which He can see, the greater picture and the beauty that is to come.

    I know He fights my battles for me. He is my guardian, my protector, my shield. I know I can look to him for strength, guidance, protection (just to name a few). With Him, all things are possible, this I know and believe. For a moment in time, when life catches me off guard, the moments when I start to worry about someone or something…the times when I don’t know where to go or what to do, talking to Him sets my mind at ease. Sometimes, it’s just a matter of minutes, other times, it may take several hours. What matters most is the is peace He brings to me in my life, reminding me of His love, how He knows my heart, hears my thought, helps me not to be so blinded, opening my eyes, my heart, helping me to see.

    When we are one with Him, life works out perfectly (as you mentioned earlier.) No need to worry or fear for God is in control and will guide us through the most difficult storms and calmest of seas. He is with us at all times…Have faith, trust and believe.

    Again, I appreciate the messages you bring and share with us all!! May He continue to speak through you, bringing words of wisdom, hope and encouragement!

      Thanks so much again for the wonderful comment. You’ve added so much insight that I wouldn’t have thought to include, yet I know from experience is so true. I very much appreciate your openness and willing to share your experience here as well. We can all definitely learn from each other. I also see that I am not the only one who goes through certain things πŸ™‚

      Bottom line is the more we truly KNOW God’s truth and word, the more we will triumph through any adversity and succeed in living out His will. Have a wonderful day πŸ™‚

      • juliearahm says:

        The more vulnerable we become and open ourselves to other people, we begin to realize we are never alone! Other people in this world are experiencing the same things as we are. At times, articulating and expressing what one is feeling may be challenging at times, not fully knowing how to express and put into words.

        I know and understand the words you speak as I have been there, still going through similar things to this day. He definitely brings people together for His higher purpose and good!

        Many blessings to you!

        And to you as well πŸ™‚

  3. I love your PIES acronym and what it represents. Trusting in God and love and having that faith makes so much sense. While I have a deep respect for all religions, I look at it from a spiritual point of view. Over the last year I didn’t have consistency with meditation now as much, I’m beginning my journey again. I remember how much of a difference it made in my life and how I trust in the universe now.

    • joedalio says:

      Thank you for the positive words. I believe it’s not a bad thing that you had to re-start your journey. As long as you’re on it! I still go through times myself where I am not as “connected” as I should be. There are many times where I felt like I was at the beginning again. However, God is faithful and will take you back no matter how long it’s been or how many times πŸ™‚

  4. Amen! Trust God all the way! One Love! πŸ•ŠπŸ¦‹
