The voice of the spirit expresses itself in man as soon as he shuts himself off from the world and attentively listens inwards until it expresses itself. Read more:

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.

That is Romans 8:14.

And the verse before that, Romans 8:13, says:

For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

We must overcome the material world and not be ruled by it.

This is expressed in this message by Bertha Dudde:

 

Gaining of wisdom. Searching and brooding.

20. August 1945. B.D. NR. 3518.

Do not search and brood but pray and listen into you, when you want to become wise. Because wisdom is spiritual knowledge, which corresponds to truth, which can never be won through searching and brooding, but is offered to you with pleasure and in all fullness by the spirit in you, which is God’s part of eternity. Get into contact with the spirit in you by you making its work possible, by bringing it to awakening through love work and then listening attentively what it announces to you. Only that man can understand this process who has experienced it himself, who fulfiled the conditions, which the work of the spirit requires – which is active in love on earth. And he has had the experience with himself that the voice of the spirit expresses itself in him as soon as he shuts himself off from the world and attentively listens inwards until it expresses itself. But without love work the spirit of God cannot become effective in him; man will therefore also never become wise who searches and broods. He will think a process to be impossible, which earns him true knowledge, as long as has not made the test himself, which promises him rich success. The spiritual connection must be established to receive spiritual knowledge, which corresponds to truth. And spiritual knowledge alone is valuable; spiritual knowledge alone is constant and is therefore to be striven for first. Earthly knowledge will then likewise be sent to man according to need, as soon as he first strives for wisdom, for knowledge, which survives everything earthly. Also earthly knowledge will be sent to him according to his earthly assignment because the spirit in him now steers all his thoughts as soon as man makes its effectiveness possible. But he is never allowed to strive for earthly success for the sake of earthly wages, but again the love for fellow-beings must drive him to also be eagerly active earthly. And every desire that springs from the love of the heart will be fulfilled because the spirit of God can now have unhindered effect in him because the danger exists no longer that man loses his heart to the world and therefore also earthly success can no longer jeopardize him. Because man assesses earthly success not differently than increased joy of being able to give and hand out to the needy. And when earthly knowledge is used to make fellow-man happy, to help him in bodily misery, he will also be blessed, and also spiritual knowledge will be guaranteed to him, and only then will he be wise – he will possess wisdom, offered by God, but never acquired through searching and brooding. God places his conditions on the acquiring of wisdom, the true knowledge out of God. And who fulfils this condition he can truly draw from the spring of wisdom. And his thirst for knowledge will be satisfied, and he will be able to again instruct his fellow-men; he will also be able to show them the way to reach right knowledge. He will preach love to them, which alone allows the work of the spirit and therefore is to be practised whatever happens when man really wants to be wise. Amen. B.D. NR. 3518.
