I’m willing to bet that if you took some time to look back through your life you would come up with some very interesting memories. If you are like me, and I am thinking you might be, then I am pretty sure you will have some great things to report. I am also very certain you have some devastating ones as well. Sometimes I think I should have written the book on “devastating” because of all the hard things I have been through.
After we come to a certain age there is so much more to look back on too! I shake my head sometimes when I think about the things God has brought me through; and I mean devastating things. I won’t bore you with the gory details. They would only serve to distract from this message. The thought provoking idea I am conveying here is that life never ceases to surprise me whether things are good or horrible.
In addition to our memories, thoughts, ideas, and ponderings, there are things that are just way too wonderful for words. They surpass the ability to even explain. God gives these things to us as a gift through His Spirit. They are mysteries, Spirit spoken truths, and totally wonderful to boot!
“But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come”. John 16:13
Is this amazing or what? Through God’s spirit we can know mysterious things. We can know and hear the truth about life, about love, about situations, about heaven, and about the future! Now THAT is exciting!
Through God’s Spirit we can also gain His wisdom for whatever choices we have in life. We can understand how to survive those moments when we “think we have seen it all!”
“The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us”. 1 Corinthians 2:(10-12)
Don’t you just love that the Spirit of God searches very deep things? When we have His Spirit we can know deep things too! We can have wisdom that comes from the “ancient of days” and have it any time we ask! Who would not want to hear from God? He has the answers to literally everything! This is why I am confounded when I see others who seek out information from spiritual sources that are not the highest one! Why seek the created when we can seek to hear the creator Himself? Who else will lead us into all mysteries? Who else can speak to us about “deep things”?
And just when we think we have seen or heard it all…there is more! God has prepared so very much for those of us who love Him, who seek Him, who search to know Him!
“What no eye has seen,
what no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived ”
the things God has prepared for those who love him”. 1 Corinthians 2:9
Do you want to know “the secret”? We hear a lot about “the secret” these days. There are a lot of those that we can know, but this is the real kicker; all we need to do is ASK! It’s all a free gift through Christ Jesus! He has died to let you know how much He loves you, and to give you the gift of His Holy Spirit to dwell within you. In all honesty, He has been dying to let YOU in on the mysterious truths of life!
You read what He said above. His mysteries and truths are mind blowing! Your mind has not even conceived what He has prepared for you! His Kingdom is at hand and the understanding of His Kingdom is with you now. You want to borrow those Kingdom keys? Ask Jesus. He has them waiting just for you! He died for you, to give you salvation and to help you find yourself in His Kingdom!
Waiting to see more,
