How much do you know about God? Did you learn about Him from faithfully attending church your whole life? Maybe read the Bible from cover to cover? Three times over? Or even got a degree in theology? A pastor? A Christian advocate? I could go on and on.
Did you know that you can be adroit in the subject of God but still be in the dark on the things that matter?
Paul teaches us that NO ONE knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. What that means is that no matter how much we spend learning and knowing about the subject of God, the Spirit of God or the heart of God is the only factor that will truly reveal to us who GOD really is.
What does the Spirit of God reveal to us? It reveals that the only thing in me that glorifies God is God in me. It's that Spirit of relationship, the Spirit of favor, the Spirit of faith etc. that can show you what is worth living for, which is what is in His heart. If you fail to understand God at times, it is because you have not tapped into that Spirit that He is trying to reveal to you. There is something that is hindering Him from emanating in your heart. It could be a sin that you have forgotten to ask forgiveness for. It may be a guilt or fear that you haven't relinquished to Him. Search your soul and define that something that is blocking the Spirit of God.
What I fear is that you have never really experienced Him, truly, truly in your heart! Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and everything will be given to you. Remember that verse? Only God's Spirit can show you your place within His body, who you are in Him and the service to which He has called you. Try as you might to fight that, as long as you know God, every detail in your life will lead you back to your purpose. Know that.
We can never figure things out on our own, only the Spirit of God reveals the heart of God. The Spirit of God knows the things of God. Since this is true, then it's not about you. It's about God. Ask God to reveal His Spirit to you so you can find your purpose in this world. Live outside yourself and focus on what God wants you to achieve in this world for Him because the prize is not from this world. It's like playing the tv game show the prize is right... you pick a door and the door you didn't pick reveals a better prize than the one you chose. That's what God has for us. It's a better feeling than the best feeling you've ever felt in your entire existence.
Lead your heart to His heart and your life will be the brightest you've ever felt!
Until my next rant... LOVE ONE ANOTHER!
