Good morning! Grace and peace to you in abundance from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ!
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of revealed.
1 Corinthians 2v10 but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit.
Paul is telling us here that before Christ know one knew God, know one could see, hear, or conceive what God had prepared for the ones that loved Him. That was the old way of thinking, but now through the Holy Spirit God has revealed himself to us through His Son Jesus Christ. We think differently because with the Holy Spirit we search new and the deep things of God. If we are still thinking the same way not being able to know God and Him not revealing new things we did not know before than have we surrendered all to Him? Are we still infants being tossed back and forth in the wind? We often get in His way of revealing the unsearchable things we do not know because our mind is cluttered with our old ways of thinking.( Ephesians 4v24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.) If we find ourselves speaking with the same mind and it's way of thinking and it has not changed we are keeping His power from working in us. Have we forgotten it has been renewed, and we are redeemed and we lack no spiritual gift because we have the mind of Christ. Have we forgotten we have not received the spirit of the world we have received the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us? Do we live a life as though we know God because of the faith we have in Him making us who we are? Have we come to the point in our relationship with Christ that we have abandoned all of our thinking to Him or do we need to start today and give ourselves to Him at the cross, so we can receive His mind. Then we can walk in His mind guiding us and providing us with all we need for this life and the one to come. Are we finding ourselves speaking in spiritual words with spiritual truths? Have we found ourselves making judgments about all things through the mind of God because He has revealed what He wants us to know about Himself through the Holy Spirit. If we are not getting revelations from Him, how are we living the life He has planned for us? (Jeremiah 33v3 Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know)God's wisdom is a secret and can only be revealed to those that truly have Faith in Jesus Christ with a sincere heart, knowing they have to deny themselves as being the lord of their own lives. Have we given all of ourselves to Him so He can be Lord of our lives? What are we keeping above Him, what are we blocking our paths with? Is our work in the world or our work in the church coming before Him? Is pleasing people coming before pleasing Him? Is our family and our love for them coming before our love for Him? Is our own pride in making our own righteousness getting in His way? What name are we putting before His? Are we putting the cares of this world before Him? If we have given Him full control over our lives His wisdom will be revealed to us, we will be asking in Jesus name and not in any other name. He will give us all things we need because we have given our lives to Him in Faith in Him giving us all things in this present life and the one to come. Through the Holy Spirit we know the things He has freely given us. Our lives are His to be used for His purpose. We all are made for His purpose not our own, this is what has been revealed to us; He gives us all we need to accomplish what He has given each of us to do and His plans for our future do not fail, and they are perfect for us!
