1 Corinthians 2:9-10
“But just as it is written, “Things that no eye has seen, or ear heard, or mind imagined, are the things God has prepared for those who love him.” God has revealed these to us by the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God.” 11 For who among men knows the things of a man except the man’s spirit within him? So too, no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God.12 Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things that are freely given to us by God. 13 And we speak about these things, not with words taught us by human wisdom, but with those taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual things to spiritual people. 14 The unbeliever does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him. And he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 The one who is spiritual discerns all things, yet he himself is understood by no one. 16 For who has known the mind of the Lord, so as to advise him? But we have the mind of Christ.”
“Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus.”
2 Timothy 1:7
“For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
On Sundays, I want to simply share Scripture and a prayer from my devotion time to reflect on.
Lord, what is man, that You would give us Your Spirit and reveal deep mysteries to us? That You would grant us the mind of Christ? Wow. We cannot understand the simplest words from Your Word without You mercifully opening our eyes. We are humbled, oh God, by Your kindness. We are blessed to have seen any revelation from You.
Lord, help us to fill our mind with only what pleases You, to choose to dwell on thoughts that bring You glory. Thank You for opening our eyes to see and to know You!
