2017 – FRIDAY 13 JANUARY
1 Corinthians 2:9
“Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
Nor have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”
It is possible to believe in God but be bound to the dust of creation.
Reality to such people, is limited to that which the five senses reveal.
However God has prepared amazing things for those who love His presence.
These things cannot be seen with the natural eye, nor heard about with the ear.
They cannot even be comprehended with the human heart and mind.
The things God wants to bring to you, and do in you, are prepared in the heavenly realms of His fullness and completeness.
They are not small or insignificant, but exceedingly and abundantly greater than anything you could ever dream to ask Him for.
So what stops us experiencing this kind of spiritual life?
1. REFUSAL TO ENTER HIS WORLD
One can only be introduced to the things God has prepared, by entering His presence and beholding His glory.
Being too busy rearranging dust, will always preclude you from spiritual revelation.
2. REFUSAL TO WASH OFF THE DUST
The practise of washing your mind daily, with the water of God’s word, is the most basic of spiritual practises, to prepare for spiritual revelation.
3. REFUSAL TO BELIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE
When God speaks we must receive, believe and obey.
His spiritual revelation comes from a different world. Far greater and fuller than anything we can know here in the dust of creation.
That’s why – when God speaks – it is initially impossible to comprehend, and apprehend, what is being promised.
Right here is the secret to spiritual revelation.
God speaks to us to lift us up, out of the dust and into the divine.
HIS PROMISE – IS YOUR POTENTIAL.
Sad to see people so blinded by the dust of their humanity – they never seek for spiritual revelation.
We are not such people.
We know our future is already assured and planned by the one who controls all things.
We want to hear from our God of grace.
We will receive, believe and obey His promises to us.
