Perception



Did you know that from the psychological point of view, women are more perceptive than men? They easily notice changes in behavior and perceive things more easily.
This has its advantages, it gives you the opportunity to react quickly and prevent certain situations.
Women have great ability to tune into the feelings and to tell the difference between what people say and what they really mean, that is, we catch everything, or so we think.
We can even say that we realize when someone says something only to please you, when someone does not want you around, when a friend is in trouble even without they saying anything, when they tell you one thing, meaning another, lol … it may sounds complicated, but we women understand all this, is it not?
It may seem very nice to have all this "power", if behind all that there was not a great danger. The danger of judging what we really don’t know, including people's intentions.

We acquire the information, interpret and organize it according to our thoughts and past experiences, which means it will not always be in agreement with reality.

We know that the only able to know the intentions of the heart is God, but how many times we want to judge the intentions of others?
We are carried away by the ability of perception and we want to determine whether the intention of the person was good or bad, forgetting that we do not have such power, only God has it.

This was something that God showed me in 2014 and I've been careful not to commit such a thing.

We all feel bad when we do something with good intention and others think you were malicious, but we were at peace because we know that God knows the real intention.

Now imagine doing that to the  people around us? How many times were we wrong about people, right?

Let us be careful, because wanting to judge the intent of the heart of the other person is too much. That is why God did not give us the power to judge, it is up to Him alone, the only one able to judge with full justice and full knowledge of the attitudes and intents of the heart.

"Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord comes, who will both bring to light the hidden things of darkness and reveal the counsels of the hearts. Then each one’s praise will come from God." 1 Corinthians 4: 5.

This is very true. I don't think it can be any realer than this.

A while ago I was thinking how upside down everything is. The abilities God created us with have been used against us. E.g. rather than using the ability to 'hold on' in hard times, now this ability is being used by women to 'hold on' to grudges, hatred and things that destroy us.

It's exactly the same thing with being able to see the intention behind other people's behaviour (especially other women) we have this ability so we can show understanding and love to others NOT judge them and in turn destroying ourselves.

Thanks so much for this
