When The Instinct To Increase Is Missing?
Describing instinct as the capacity or natural aptitude to do something is the unconscious behavior we see in this illustration by Jesus. Jesus starts with the illustration or parable of the 10 virgins as a lesson of instinct (Matthew 25:1-13). In the parable of the 10 talents, we focus on the brother who received one talent and demonstrated his nature. He reacted without thinking.
Dr. Joy DeGruy Leary has wrote "Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome" as a result of years of quantitative and qualitative research about what happens when trauma is not treated over the 400 yr slave system in America. She attributes that some of our actions and reactions stem from an injury that transferred by DNA. This is about instinct, the brother with the one talent had no internal motivation to grow anything and this represents several levels of understanding for us as Christians because God has planted in us an instinct (1 John 5:14) and for some of us, it is missing.
We all should have the instinct to pray but it is more than likely uncultivated. There is no aptitude to grow or increase in our innate task or spiritual enrichment. Are you burying your gift without realizing that God has an expectation?
But he that had received one went and digged in the earth, and hid his lord's money.
The strong, Creator God, Elohim, we thank You with honor for Your test of our instinct. We praise You for Your thoughts toward us, the insertion of our behavior that we prosper and increase in Your wisdom. We decree and declare blessings upon those who walk by Faith and not by sight, so that; the culture of Jesus Christ is supported for the growth of the Kingdom of God. Now, for the Kingdom and the Glory of God, we petition, with anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord, and Savior, Amen.
