The most basic language of God is spiritual consolation on the third level of the human heart: God encourages and gives life, energy, lightness, and attraction to the human heart concerning one’s relationship with God and all that he has revealed to be true. The most basic language of the enemy is spiritual desolation on the third level of the human heart: it is an experience of heaviness, confusion, darkness, and discouragement concerning one’s relationship with God and all that he has revealed to be true.
