March 17, 2017: SOAP #2661: Deuteronomy 32-34; 1Corinthians 2

Scripture: 1Corinthians (NIV) 2:11 For who among men knows the thoughts of a man except the man's spirit within him? In the same way, no-one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 We have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what God has freely given us.

Observation: God wants to share His thoughts with His children, but there is a problem. The things of God are spiritual and people are flesh and blood. We see things from an earthy viewpoint rather than a spiritual viewpoint. But, we can rejoice; God has an answer to this dilemma! He gives us His Holy Spirit

Application: It is so important that I grow in my relationship with the Holy Spirit. Since He was sent to be with me like He was with Jesus, I need to grow in my communication with Him. He is with me every minute, every hour, every day, every week I must learn to better interact with Him.

Prayer: Holy Spirit, You are my constant companion, counselor and guide. I walk so far below my potential when I ignore You. Make me more useable in the kingdom of God. Amen
