Running With the Wolves

“My spirit talks, I know my soul believes”

I was exploring Soundcloud yesterday and one of the songs that came up was AURORA – Running With the Wolves. I was talking to some girls from church last week at dinner and explaining that I notice Christian things in the world. It’s hard to explain but all around me, things people say, music, advertisements, etc all remind me of God. It’s like, people might not know that they are saying God things or having God thoughts, but when you are a Christian your radar is on and it’s loud and clear. Anyway, this song was pretty and I noticed the one line “My spirit talks, I know my soul believes”.

I think this is something most if not all Christians can relate to.

What I mean is, when you are saved, your Spirit, the Holy Spirit, talks to you.

In the Bible it says the following about the Holy Spirit:

John 3 NIV:

8 The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit.
Romans 8 NLT:
16 For his Holy Spirit speaks to us deep in our hearts and tells us that we are God’s children.
Matthew 10 NIV:
do not worry about what to say or how to say it. At that time you will be given what to say, 
20 for it will not be you speaking, but the Spirit of your Father speaking through you.
In other words, this is a regular song, but the lyrics speak deeper spiritual truths whether AURORA realizes it or not. We were all created with the breath of God, we sometimes speak His truths without realizing it, and in the world you can often recognize God’s word in non-Christian places. I find it really fascinating!
The second part of that line says “I know my soul believes”. I think there are two cool aspects to this. The lyric infers that the singer knows that she has a soul and that her soul has the ability to believe.
In looking up souls in the Bible I found two scriptures I believe apply:
Isaiah 42 ESV:

5  Thus says God, the Lord,

who created the heavens and stretched them out,

who spread out the earth and what comes from it,

who gives breath to the people on it

and spirit to those who walk in it.

Ecclesiastes 12 ESV

7 and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

I picked these out because if God created our souls/spirits then it makes sense that our souls believe in God. God cannot contradict Himself, so if He created something it wouldn’t argue with Him. Granted we as humans have free will–our flesh has free will, our brains have free will, but I still think that our souls know the Truth of God because it came from God. However, we can choose to rot our souls.

Habakkuk 2 MSG says:

You’ve undermined your foundations,
    rotted out your own soul.

While some might say, it’s just a song. Or you’re applying Christian thought to something that’s not Christian…I choose to believe the Truth as revealed in the Bible through disciples and Jesus Himself. If, we were all created by God, by His very breath, then why is it so illogical to believe that even if people are not followers of Christ or believers in God, that they would still have the ability to talk about or feel Heavenly truths, and have Spiritual pangs in their hearts without meaning to.

We all take after our parents. It could be good habits and bad habits. If we are all in fact, children of God, the one true God, it also follows logic that we would even in our day to day humanity reflect our Creator.

I challenge you to look for the fingerprints of God in the day to day–a lyric, a picture, someone’s comment, something in nature, and invention, whatever it may be—and trust me when I say–God is somewhere in it.
