Do you ever wonder why many choose to live life opposite to what God has called us to live? Many know the Word of God, even the ones who do not actively come to the church building. Yet for some odd reason, they like to show up wherever sin is present. They yield a lot of knowledge about the bible and they use it to claw themselves out of a corner should someone question them. But, live by the Word? No. They have somehow came to believe that knowing what God says is sufficient enough. Do you not know to whom much is given, much is required? (Luke 12:48)
The world speaks of adrenalin rushes in relation to the hormonal super boost that they are given when they brush with danger or death. Seems that spiritually, there are individuals who get a rush out of playing with death and this has been so for thousands of years. “Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wanteth understanding, she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knoweth not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.” (Proverbs 9:16-18) In this scriptural diagnosis, we can see that God is telling us the deceiver is able to deceive those who have a lack of understanding. While they may know what the bible says, they have not yet come to understand what it means. That is why they can quote scriptures, however, when asked to explain, they explain from the flesh when the bible says to lean not to your own understanding. “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.” (1 Kings 4:29) Wisdom comes from God, as evident here. People who have no wisdom, no knowledge and no understanding are easily deceived by many words or educated sounding conversations. For example, one commonly misquoted scripture is 1 Timothy 6:10: “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” What are many people saying? They say that money is the root of all evil and individuals with no knowledge of the Word eat this up because they cannot understand what they do not know and they know not because they have not asked God for it or they asked for it, yet they refuse to do what is needed. Faith without works is dead, so asking for wisdom avails you nothing if you are sitting down and waiting for it to drop down into your spirit, yet you refuse to move in the faith. To ask for wisdom, you have to believe for it. To believe it, you have to put your faith on display and apply your wisdom.
Spiritual adrenalin is a spiritual condition which is rooted in lack of Godly wisdom and understanding. The parasite (Satan) is able to contaminate their knowledge with lies and a feeling of euphoria. This is why so many women and men are enticed at the thought of being with someone who is married to someone else. That is why there are many individuals who have money, but turn to crime. That is why many men who can easily find a simple woman prefer to rape a woman instead. That control gives them a moment where they feel like a god. Where there is no wisdom, foolishness abounds and thrives. In a sense, they are in a coma, awaiting death and the feeling they achieve from sin is similar to shock treatment. For a moment, they feel alive. For a moment, they are able to delight in something. For a moment, they are able to feel accomplished and rejuvenated. This is an occasional boost, but just like a drug high, this feeling does come down. Have you ever wondered why serial killers keep souvenirs of the people they kill? Because they want to relive the moment when they felt like a god, when they felt in control and when they felt invincible. It is an adrenalin rush for them, both physically and spiritually. They have become one with evil and as such, they delight in it. They do not know that that they can achieve a greater high that is pure directly from the Holy Ghost. They live from moment to moment, victimizing others just for a thrill.
You do not need to embrace drugs, alcohol, control, or any form of evil just to feel euphoric. Just try the Holy Ghost. Let God raise up in you and there is no feeling like having His glory burning from within. And you do not have to hurt anyone to achieve it. Just call on the Name of the Lord and believe that He is with you. Praise Him for all His goodness and mercies. Invite the Holy Ghost into your heart and you will find that there is no love greater than this! There is no captivity that is more welcomed than being captured by the Holy Spirit. There is no high that can even come close to having God at work in you! Drugs and alcohol shut down the body and slowly kill it, but how about letting the Holy Spirit pump life into you! Anyone that has ever experienced this know that there is no turning back. There is nothing or no one like Christ. You can search high and low, pump all types of chemicals into your body, feed on all kinds of foolishness, but none of it can come close to my God. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. Let Him continue what He has started in you and there will be no ending for you. Let Him use you and stop letting foolishness tarnish your heart with deaths graffiti. There is no one like our God! Try Him! Call Him into your hearts and talk to Him each and every day. Know Him and you will LOVE Him. Know Him and you will ADORE Him. Call upon His Name and He will answer. Praise Him and He will lift you up. There is no love like the love of our Father. Stop chasing hate and death across this place and start inviting love into your place. It is then that you will discover that an adrenalin rush is generic. The real love, the real high is being elevated on high by God. Try Him and see!
