…“No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. No one can know a person’s thoughts except that person’s own spirit, and no one can know God’s thoughts except God’s own Spirit. And we have received God’s Spirit (not the world’s spirit), so we can know the wonderful things God has freely given us (1 Corinthians 29-12 NLT).
For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets…
Beloved, the general frustration that most of us experience in life is not knowing what the future holds but what if you were told that there was Someone who knew everything about your future? Would you not take advantage of that Someone? Would you not be on the phone for hours talking with that Someone? Isn’t it time we decide to no longer remain ignorant?
Our feature text lets us know that God has deep hidden secrets that can only be revealed to us through His Spirit. He is the curious one that searches the mind of God and seeks out the information we are so desperate for. Many a times, I come up with some crazy ideas and I’m thinking okay, this is just me dreaming but then, when it is later confirmed in whichever way the Lord chooses, I’m thinking really? So that was God? Yes, it was. However, as it often happens, every time your spirit reveals something to you, your mind talks you out of it and then you start to rebuke the devil but if it refuses to be rebuked, it may not the devil.
Beloved, you cannot move into your future out of your head. This wisdom is revealed only to the spirit and like someone said, “maybe your life is meant to be much bigger than your head can contain”. Hmmm… so true! I only started receiving great revelations about my life when I started to partner with the Holy Spirit in prayer and this is mostly done by praying in tongues because that’s when you are having mature conversations with God… For anyone who speaks in a tongue does not speak to people but to God… (1 Corinthians 14:2 NIV) and …the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. For example, we don’t know what God wants us to pray for. But the Holy Spirit prays for us with groanings that cannot be expressed in words. And the Father who knows all hearts knows what the Spirit is saying, for the Spirit pleads for us believers in harmony with God’s own will (Romans 8:26-27 NIV).
Beloved, WHAT DOES THE SPIRIT KNOW ABOUT YOUR FUTURE THAT YOU NEED TO KNOW? Isn’t it time to find out?
