KEY SCRIPTURE: John 3:9 KJV “Nicodemus answered and said unto him, How can these things be?”
Nicodemus sat before the Lord as He spoke about the great things of the Spirit, yet, could not receive just one point. This could be deduced from his question to Jesus. How shall these things be.? He heard the master, the great miracle worker alright, yet He related to all that he said from a human point of view. He related to the Lord in his natural wisdom. The scriptures have revealed that man by wisdom cannot know God.1Co 1:21 KJV “For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.” You cannot receive any good thing from God, so long as you attempt to reason out how God works. Nicodemus asked, how can these things be?
The year 2021 is gradually coming to a close. What has been your experiences with God? The only means to enjoy the blessings of God is to believe Him. Do not be like Nicodemus who wanted to understand how the things of the Spirit functions. The bible shows us how to understand the things of the spirit. Heb 11:3 KJV “Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.” The preceding verse says through faith, we understand.
Understanding the workings of God, is always a function of our faith. First believe what God says, you would understand Him.
Faith is the access into God’s world. It is a man’s decision to receive what God says without questioning. Man is a dependant being. He can never make it without God. Man over the years have tried to push God out of his life equations, but has always ended up the loser. God has an abundance of peace for the many who are languishing in rebellion and inner torment. Dear one do not enter the next year without submitting your soul into the master of your soul. Do not allow natural human reasoning to rob you of that wonderful blessing of God. The new year has prosperity for those who are ready to submit to the God of the year.
THOUGHT: GOD LOVES ALL MEN, AND HAS SO MUCH TO SHOW THOSE WHO WOULD BE HUMBLE BEFORE HIM
Matthew 11:25 KJV “At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.”
James 4:6,7 KJV But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
