Do You Understand the Things of God?

“For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.”

1 Corinthians 2:11

Ponder This

What does it mean to have your mind opened by God? It means that the average man, the average woman, the average boy, and the average girl in the pew, who is obedient and diligent, can understand the Word of God. Look back at 1 Corinthians 1:26-27: “For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called. But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.”

What does that mean? It means God takes ordinary people and does extraordinary things through those people. It means you can get your Bible and you can pray over it. And you can get your heart right with God, and you can ask, “Spirit of God, make Yourself known to me.” And God will reveal Himself to you supernaturally out of the Bible.

  • When have you felt that God revealed Himself to you through His Word?
  • How much desire would you say you have for God to reveal Himself on a daily basis? What contributes to that for good or bad?

Practice This

Take time today to study your Bible. Begin by asking God to open your mind and give you an understanding of the things revealed in His Word.
