The Spirit of God

Even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. 1 Corinthians 2:11b

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 discerned. 1 Corinthians 2:14

Every child of God has the Holy Spirit living inside of him or her. The Holy Spirit doesn't leave you, Jesus  promised that when the Holy Spirit comes, he will be with you forever. John 14:16

Yes you may be too busy with the cares of this life that you can't even hear him speak anymore or you might grieve him with constant disobedience that you barely recognise he is still with you or if you are ignorant about the scriptures you might not even know he resides inside of you but he never leaves a believer.

However my point today is in the scriptures above, Apostle Paul says only the Holy Spirit knows the things of God!
If you understand this clearly as a lifeline you will desire him above your daily food.  You will take no step until he gives you the green light.

Have you ever wondered why 'that thing' as we refer to it tells you to do something or not to do something and you refuse simply because it sounded ridiculous to you and you end up getting into trouble or missing out on something or taking a very costly decision you are still paying for today.

For some they went into the wrong relationship and they are still paying today, some lost all their savings because of a wrong decision, some almost paid with their life all because it looked good in their eyes though the Holy Spirit warned them. They didn't feel right about it but still they went ahead.

Verse 14 says in your natural way of thinking you can't understand the things of God, its impossible to discern the ways of God.
God is a spiritual God, Bible says his ways will be foolishness to you so don't even try to analyse it with your brain as you won't get it.

For example bible says 'give and it shall be given to you', there is he that scatters yet he increaseth but there is he which withholds more than is meet but it leads to poverty. Proverbs 11:24.
This is God's way but if you look at it from man's perspective, it is foolish. How can I increase by scattering, how can holding on to my money make me poor?

Analyse it from now till eternity, it will  not make sense to you because bible says in Isaiah  55:8-9, my ways are not your ways.
God is big, God is 'all knowing', God speaks and it is done, he established laws and they cannot be broken.

All the intellectuals of this world cannot do anything about it, in fact bible says the wisdom of this world is vain 1 Corinthians 3:18 if anyone thinks he is wise with this world's wisdom he should better become a fool, that is seek heavenly wisdom, earthly wisdom will never allow you obey the laws of God  as they will never make sense to you.

How wonderful to have advance information, how good it will be to know what to do, how blessed to know what decision to take when others are second guessing and failing.

Verse 13 says 'Now we have received not the spirit of the world but the Spirit which is of God that we might KNOW the things which are freely given to us of God.

Listen more to the Holy Spirit living inside of you, don't shrug away that impression in your heart. Only him knows what God has in store for you and as you listen and do his bidding, he will take you to your destiny.
