S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
1 Corinthians 2:13
This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.
Here the Apostle Paul speaks to the Church at Corinth concerning spiritual wisdom. Earlier he said it is the Spirit that searches the deep things of God, so we have to first know God to understand what the Spirit wants to teach us. These are not truths that can come from human wisdom. Instead, they are taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.
There have been so many times in my life as a believer in Jesus when I’ve heard a great man or woman of God teach from the Word of God and afterward, I looked at them and said, “Why did I not know that. Where did you get that?” When I questioned them they were always kind, but they looked at me with that look that said, “I Didn’t Get It From You.” I believe what this passage of scripture tells us. I believe that the Lord wants to show you and me deeper things in the realm of the Spirit that we’re presently not aware of. But it will never happen without studying God’s Word and meditating on what we’ve read. Only the Spirit can show us the wisdom and ways of God when we’re willing to pull away and spend time with Him. Today instead of listening to other people pontificate on their take from life, let’s you and I get alone with God’s Word and hear the thoughts of Jesus.
This AM, it’s my desire to hear the deeper things that only true believers have access to from Your Word and by Your Spirit. Please show me, Lord. I want more. Amen
