". . . whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of the flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and the mind . . ." [ Eph. 2:3, NKJV]
What is the difference between self-talk, which may be thoughts of the unconscious coming to surface in the aware level and when God speaks to the mind?
Subconscious thoughts often try to establish the priority of the Self---persuading, arguing some issue to make the Self more comfortable.
The Holy Spirit speaks final truths, says perminent reality, no argumenting facts. He points to Jesus as the Son of God who is consistantly Othercentered. He never goes against scripture and His revelations.
