The Bible in Conjure: A Two-Headed Book

1 Samuel 10:10-14

New International Version (NIV)
10 When he and his servant arrived at Gibeah, a procession of prophets met him; the Spirit of God came powerfully upon him, and he joined in their prophesying. 11 When all those who had formerly known him saw him prophesying with the prophets, they asked each other, “What is this that has happened to the son of Kish? Is Saul also among the prophets?”
12 A man who lived there answered, “And who is their father?” So it became a saying: “Is Saul also among the prophets?” 13 After Saul stopped prophesying, he went to the high place.
14 Now Saul’s uncle asked him and his servant, “Where have you been?”
“Looking for the donkeys,” he said. “But when we saw they were not to be found, we went to Samuel.”

 The Bible is a tricky book. Just like a conjure worker you have to learn how to read between the lines to see what Spirit really is telling you. When you look at this verse it's talking about how the Spirit of God came upon Saul and caused him to prophesy by the Spirit. In this verse we see revelation of the divine gifts and the call to follow them.

The way I look at it is that God will speak a message through other people regardless of how great or small they may look. A person's appearance isn't important but what does matter is the word spoken to you. If I wanted the truth revealed to me I'd pray these verses over the work so that the answer is clear to me. 

Another way to interpret these verses is that God has given you certain gifts that are special to you. Work with those gifts no matter what they be in service of the Highest and you will be led to the high places. They will speak for themselves. Just be quiet and do your job. Don't get stiff in the neck (arrogant).

The verses will mean different things for everybody. If you read one book or chapter alone you'll find that the verses can be prayed over all types of work. This is true of the whole Bible. This is what also makes it confusing sometimes.

So the first thing you need to ask God is "Show me clearly the word." Then open your Bible and read out loud the first three verses. Sometimes the message will be clear as day while at other times it'll be foggy and dense. Sometimes you can't understand what the Bible is saying because you are NOT ready!!! The message is the answer but you have to GROW in order to understand it. At the time you got the message it was meant for you to have but you had to wait and grow so it becomes clear. I hope this makes sense. Drlovebug
