One of my most favourite bible verse is 1 Corinthians 2:9-10
That is what the Scriptures mean when they say,
“No eye has seen, no ear has heard,
and no mind has imagined
what God has prepared
for those who love him.”
But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit.
For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.”
I love love love this passage! and because I love it I live my life on it.
You see most people only read the eye has not seen and ear not heard nor has the heart comprehended God and leave it at that – happy to accept that yes, God is indescribable, awesome, big, great, wow type thing. which He so is. God is a mystery and wondrous and indescribable and all powerful and amazing.
(one of the best “buts” in the bible I reckon!)
BUT God has revealed these things – what are the these things – the things that eye has not seen, or ear heard, or heart comprehended – these things He has revealed to us his children because He lives inside us!
It means that we can know God, hear God, live for God, honour God, walk with God, be known by God, have relationship with God, know His will and His ways etc etc etc.
I dont take it as that we can know every minute detail of God or even the big picture but we can know so much more and so easier than we think or limit ourselves.
Remember, Jesus died on the cross to make a new and living way to God, so we are now acceptable, righteous, holy and his children, part of the family.
We can boldly approach the throne of grace, the veil that was between man and God is gone, torn, destroyed by the work of Jesus on the cross and now the Holy Spirit lives within us – God IN me. He teaches and guides us. wow. wow.wow!
Be excited and freed by the reality that eye can see and ear can hear and our heart can know the good things that God has prepared for us because He lives within us and reveals those things to us.
