Hidden Things of God
By Jewell Clarke
1 Corinthians 2:10 Amplified Bible (AMPC)
Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].
Many years ago when I was attending school we were taught in my day the ABC’s of learning. A teacher stood at the front of the classroom and imparted knowledge to us which required us to use our 5 senses to retain the information. At times it was very difficult as it was coming from the teacher’s ideas and logic. We had no computers, no calculators to help us in math, no Google search for projects or electronic games. All the knowledge we received was from our teacher. This learning came from the outside in.
In the Kingdom of God there is another way of learning. This learning comes from the inside out!!! It is called REVELATION KNOWLEDGE. Peter spoke revelation knowledge when Jesus asked his disciples “Who do you say I am?” Peter’s response was correct when he said, “Thou art the Christ the Son of the living God”. Only the spirit of God could have revealed this to him. There was a confidence and boldness when he spoke this revelation.
In the days which we are living, God so wants to impart revelation knowledge to His children. This is the knowledge which we could not obtain any other way but by the Spirit of God. How do we receive this knowledge?? By Abiding in Him, being still, resting in the secret place of the Most High, spending time meditating on His word and in prayer and allowing Him to speak to us in His gentleness. 1 Cor. 2:7-9 speaks of at one time this wisdom was hidden from human understanding but has now been revealed to us. He has hidden it for you not from you – it is His desire that you receive!!!
It is my prayer that a hunger come forth for the Hidden Things of God. This school of learning will never fail you and the rewards are endless. He has promised in 1 Cor. 2:9 “No eye has seen no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love Him.” We are living in difficult times but He has not left us without help. He has prepared for us strategies, insight, wisdom and counsel to bring us up and above all circumstances we face!!! What an awesome Father we have!!!
