That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “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. ~ 1 Corinthians 2:9,10 NLT
Many of us believe in God. We believe the Father sent his Son Jesus to earth to take on a physical body so we might know him, hear his wisdom and truth and by believing in Christ, we would be transferred from death to eternal life. We may also believe that, the moment we believed, we received the Holy Spirit who is the very power of God at work in and through us.
But did you know, and more importantly, do you believe, that one of the Holy Spirit’s roles is to reveal God’s deep secrets to us? We have the Holy Spirit with us all the time, and he loves to do his job of showing us things we did not know about God and the spiritual realm. We are probably missing lots of exciting, wonderful things when we are not intentionally tuned in to the Holy Spirit.
God's Word tells us that Jesus is always with us. (Heb.13:5) I don’t know about you, but I really want to see Jesus. Have you seen him? One way of seeing Jesus is to recognize evidence of his presence. When we are sensitive to his presence we realize that someone is intervening in difficult circumstances, someone is saving us from physical danger, and someone fills us with love, peace and comfort when life starts to go off the rails.
Want more excitement in your life? Start praying and asking the Holy Spirit to reveal God’s deep secrets, and to show you more of Jesus. Our purpose is to know Jesus and to grow in our relationship with him. Let’s practice tuning in to the flow of the Spirt. Then, let’s keep our spiritual eyes open and expect to see him every day!
Dear friends, be blessed with confident expectation of receiving more revelation of Jesus and his ways in and through you. Be blessed as you truly believe you are loved and invited to know him better. Take time to know Jesus in the Bible so you may recognize him on the street. Then get ready to be blessed by his active presence in your daily life! Amen.
