No Guessing with God

It amazes me how many people think of God as unpredictable when it comes to His promises in the Word. 

Like God wants to keep us guessing... I’m sure you too have heard others say, “ well, you never know what God is going to do”... 

This idea is based on the verse of scripture found in 1 Corinthians 2:9 that says, “Eye has not seen or ear heard, nor has entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for those that love Him”
Some have interpreted this to mean that God is keeping secrets from us. But here is the truth; He’s not keeping things from us. If you read the next verse (verse 10), we are told; “But God has revealed them to us by His Spirit; for the Spirit searches all things, yes, even the deep things of God”. Wow, here’s the deal, God isn’t keeping secrets from us, He’s trying to reveal secrets to us... God wants us to know everything that He thinks, feels, and knows about us and our future. Praise God... If you are in the dark about God’s will and plans for your life, you don’t have to be any longer. 

He wants to reveal all these good things to us, but that revelation comes from the Holy Spirit... so we must determine from this point forward that we will start listening and receiving from Holy Spirit. 

As you read the Word, also pray in the spirit, and let revelation of the scriptures come alive in you; and ask God how they apply to you personally. Take time to listen to God and you will never have to wander or wonder in guesswork again...

In Him and 
never coming 
out, Karl

  2. i always took that first script to mean we aren't even remotely capable of imaging all the goodness God has in store for or wants for us...but you're absolutely right, all is revealed in our spirit if we simply stay quiet long enough and listen! thanks pastor, good word! blessings...
