The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God’s Spirit is doing, and can’t be judged by unspiritual critics. Isaiah’s question, “Is there anyone around who knows God’s Spirit, anyone who knows what he is doing?” has been answered: Christ knows, and we have Christ’s Spirit. (1 Corinthians 2:14-16 MSG)
“God’s Spirit and OUR spirits in open communion.” Now THAT is what I call a REALationship with God! And IN that kind of REALationship with Him, we have access to everything He is doing. Wow! That is sooooooooo good! That means we have access to what God is doing in our own individual lives as well. God is NOT trying to “hide” His will and plan for our life. He WANTS us to know every detail. BUT……we can only access that information when we have this “open communion” with Him through Christ. It doesn’t come through our continual asking, begging, or pleading, “What is Your will for my life?” It comes as we have open communion with Him; those Father – son, Father – daughter talks. You know, a relationship, a REALationship.
I want to encourage you to “get alone with God” and experience that open communion with Him. Before you know it, you will see HIS plan for your life unfold, one page at a time. Priceless!
Remember, all you Facebook fans……God has a “Like” button and a “Share” button. He has already pushed them both concerning YOU. All He is waiting for now is for YOU to ACCEPT His “Friend Request.”
