1 Corinthians 2:14
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit.
To every natural man spiritual things seems like foolishness. But for we the believers it’s not just our reality and it’s our source of power.
I remember when I first gave my life to Christ, Brother Tega would sit me down and spend hours teaching me the scriptures in the Bible revealing the gift of God’s love and presence to me. As I listened to those words, something within me kept leaping for joy like an overflow, it was strange.
But they pushed me to know God for myself, I would sit for 3hours listening to the word of God but it would seem as though we just opened the Bible now and none getting tired. Each time I went back home to my Bible, every word taught came alive and more detailed to me. Sometimes in the night it would as if I was in a class receivng this lessons and taking notes and would wake up with songs of praises in lips, then, I remember the verse which says,
“This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words. (1 Corinthians 2:13) and my eyes opened to God’s love and beauty.
But everyone else didn’t understand this, I will try to explain how I felt but they would say I was just fooling around and wasting my precious time on these SILLY things. To them, it was foolish and SILLY but it was reality for me as I could literally see them playing out in my daily life.
Even Jesus rebuking the words of Peter said, Get thee behind me Satan! Thou art an offense unto me; for thou savorest not the things that be of God but to those that be of men.(Matthew 16:23) So the devil makes spiritual things like an offense and a taboo so that we as to kill trust and faith in the things of God. Then he DEVIL derives his pleasure and savour in dragging us away with the casual things of men. How foolish have we truly been to be carried away by this deception?
But the believers are of advantage when we come into the government of God, we become eye witnesses to the power of our Lord Jesus Christ’s majesty by not following the cunningly devised fables of the world (2 Peter 1:16)
They might never believe you, or they might call you crazy when you talk about God and your experiences with Him, but don’t relent. Keep pressing for more of Him because you are no longer an ordinary you are one with God. Keep pressing!
May God open our eyes and ears to the realities resident in Christ.
God bless you
