My Title: If YOU Do Anything At ALL It'll Be To Allow Him to Work
My Verse: 9
"9 But as it is written, 'What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him.'"
WE DO NOT INSTRUCT THE LORD. We HAVE the MIND of Christ. We ONLY DO THE FATHER'S WILL. <-- That aught to be our aim, goal and mission. Every. Day. The idea that God has only ever been telling one story is pretty amazing. He created over 400,000 species of flowering plants. He created the expanse of the entire universe but set up life here on this tiny little planet to tell only one story. One story arching over many individual stories.
The coolest part about this story is that it's not written in any way any mind of man would ever have written it. Our heroes are big and strong and mighty. They know what to say at just the right time and they always have something that sets them above everybody else. God looks at the overlooked. The unimpressive. The weak, the broken, the humble to call them by name. Those that KNOW that they aren't responsible for what God intends to do. He gets all the glory and we get to experience him. He always makes the small and the overlooked become the most important AND He uses them to make the biggest impact in His story. THAT's creativity.
The cool thing for me is that I don't have to be the best to be picked. All I have to do is be available. lol. The idea that the Spirit that SEARCHES THE DEPTHS OF GOD LIVES IN ME IS MELTING MY BRAIN. Lord, let me hear your voice today. Speak. I want to see your power move through this weak, little, unimpressive, broken piece of dust. Your will be done.
Never approach anyone wit lofty speech or wisdom. Nobody cares how much YOU know. - DECIDE to know NOTHING except Jesus Christ and Him crucified!
It IS possible to be present in weakness and in fear and much trembling and still WATCH the Lord DEMONSTRATE the Spirit of POWER, SO THAT your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men BUT IN THE POWER OF GOD. - YOU ARE WEAK SO THAT HE IS SHOWN AS STRONG!!!
The wisdom of God was decreed before the ages of our glory. - NONE of the rulers understood this! Otherwise they wouldn't have crucified Christ.
No God HAS revealed to us through the Spirit! For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God!!! <-- Woah. Stop and think about that a minute.
No one comprehends the thoughts of God except the SPIRIT of God. - We have been GIVEN this SAME Spirit who is from GOD, SO THAT we can UNDERSTAND the things FREELY given to us by God.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of GOd, for they are folly to him, and he is NOT ABLE to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
WE DO NOT INSTRUCT THE LORD. We HAVE the MIND of Christ. We ONLY DO THE FATHER'S WILL. <-- That aught to be our aim, goal and mission. Every. Day.
