“For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.” 1Corinthians 2:11 NIV
Read: 1Corinthians 2:1-16
About two months ago, a local TV weatherman predicted this would be a drier and warmer winter than normal. Within days, he was proven wrong and is being proved even more wrong daily as this bitter cold continues.
As smart as we think we are, as much education and experience we have; we know so little. It is humbling to admit we are wrong. GOD knows all and we know all about nothing.
We, all too often, depend upon our own self dependent confidence to make decisions. We think we know best and more times than not find ourselves asking our FATHER why things are going as they are.
Rather than trust our own instincts, we need to take those thoughts and ask GOD if we should act upon what we think. We go to doctors when we think we have an illness. We consult an attorney for advice in legal situations. We depend upon skilled tradesmen to repair our appliances and cars. Why don’t we depend upon the most high authority?
GOD is waiting to hear from you. HE created you so you would fellowship with HIM. Instead of depending upon yourself, depend on the ONE whom knows all. GOD is the expert…the only expert…in your life. Don’t continue making the same mistakes over and over.
Take your problems and lay them at the foot of the cross. Don’t forget HE is with you every minute of every day if you are a believer. When JESUS returned to Heaven, HE sent the SPIRIT OF GOD to live inside every believer. The HOLY SPIRIT will guide and direct you in all you do. Instead of predicting the weather, which only GOD knows, ask GOD what plans HE has for you.
Today’s prayer: “LORD GOD, Thank YOU for giving me knowledge and wisdom to do as YOU tell me. Remind me throughout the day YOU know all and that I must call upon YOU and trust YOUR guidance. Amen.”
