(11/08/2000) knowing the real you
|Hello prayer warriors,
1. Prayer note: knowing the real you
The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but
those things which are revealed belong unto us and to
our children for ever, that we may do all the words of
We have been talking about knowing the will of God
through studying the Word. What is revealed belong to
us and to our children FOR EVER. We can claim all the
promises in the Word because they have been revealed
to us and God has given them to us already.
What happens if we want to know a specific will, e.g.
which job to take, what car to drive, etc.?
[1 Corinthians 2:11-14]
11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, except
the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things
of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world,
but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the
things that are freely given to us of God.
13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which
man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost
teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of
the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him:
neither can he know them, because they are spiritually
The real us, which knows the things in our heart and
which communicates with God is our spirit man. It is
not our natural man, not our minds or our emotions but
our spirit man.
The spirit of a man is the lamp of the LORD, searching
all the inner depths of his heart.
So, many times to make a decision, we need to seek
God, not with our minds (what we think, what others
say, etc.) or with our emotions (what we feel) but ask
God for the inner witness which only comes when we are
in touch with our inner man. And as I have mentioned
before the inner witness is one of the easiest way to
hear from God. It is this light that turns on inside
of us, that gives us this deep inner peace when we
think of a right decision or gives us this great inner
unrest when we think of a wrong decision.
So, the next time before you jump to a conclusion,
come before God and present your request before God
and ask God for the inner witness and follow the peace
in your heart.
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by
prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your
requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all
understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus.
