I asked Jesus to give me His eyes so I could SEE…..
I asked Jesus to give me His ears so I could HEAR…..
I asked Jesus to give me His heart so I could FEEL…..
I asked Jesus to give me His mind so I could THINK…..sanctified in His KNOWLEDGE
And Jesus answered me…….
Luke 11:9: “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened”
Jeremiah 33:3 “Call to me (my bride) and I will answer and reveal to you wondrous secrets that you haven’t known.”
As a gift of the spirit, the gift of knowledge is to receive the mind of Christ and to take every thought captive into His holiness. He replaces our worldly thought patterns, our earthly strategies, our assumed hypothesis, and our emotion driven “quick-fix” solutions with a different and righteous untainted mind set….Made in His Image. Our minds can not function and be of this world and still embrace the mind of Jesus. They must be set free from sin and darkness, cleansed, and open to receive the unexplained brilliance offered by God. He wants to share His knowledge and Holy genius but we must first seek him in full, refusing the world’s temptations and explanations, and sit in obedience in His classroom. We must live a life of holy surrender contradicting the ways of the world and be at peace with His command to pursue Him in a life long study of His word while accepting ALL of His answers as truth…..growing in His Knowledge!
God’s gift of “a wealth of knowledge” is more valuable than all the silver and the gold of the earth (as it is written). God’s abundant treasure is not found in this world. That is “Fool’s Gold”. We can not buy the knowledge and mind of God at any price. We must SEEK IT OUT instead, at all costs, and be willing to give up ANYTHING we consider valuable worldly treasure. Be wise in the Lord, and DO NOT compromise an eternity with Jesus for something of temporary gain and gone in a breathe! DO NOT be fooled by Satan’s deceptive claims and false imagery (the glamour of sin) in exchange for your sanity and life! Satan WILL steal it back from you if you buy into his proposals! And he WILL come back time again with revised offers and added bonuses of more if you will just sign the dotted line and buy into his corrupt evil offers. Guard your heart and mind! Come Lord Jesus! Amen
James 4:4 “You are like unfaithful wives, flirting with the glamour of this world, and never realising that to be the world’s lover means becoming the enemy of God!
For me, one of the most relatable and most challenging teachings from Jesus, was when the rich man asked Jesus what he lacked….for he claimed he had kept all the commandments. And Jesus answered him, “If you want to be perfect, GO, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” 22 When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great (worldly) wealth.”….Mathew 19:21-22
This man could not let go of what he was in love with…what he loved more than Jesus himself. He clearly did not have or had never sought the gift of knowledge from God. He had no understanding of what power, brilliance, and extreme wealth Jesus was offering him right there before his eyes. He was blinded, seduced, and deceived by the world’s glittering riches instead. Otherwise, that young man would have gladly sold everything instantly, probably just given it away, and would have run to catch up with King Jesus who was carrying the secrets and treasures of eternity in heaven….a place of such wealth that “the city was of pure gold, as pure as glass. “ (Revelation 21:18)
May The Lord sanctify us in His Knowledge. Find peace and grace from the gift of His mind! Seek RICHES in God’s knowledge beyond what we can EVEN imagine! EVEN So Come! I believe!!!! Amen
