Scripture for the Day – May 9, 2019
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory (1 Corinthians 2:7).
How do we speak the wisdom of God? How do we speak answers to mysteries?
“For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men but to God, for no one understands him; however, in the spirit he speaks mysteries” (1 Corinthians 14:2).
When we speak in an unknown tongue, we are speaking mysteries, we are speaking answers, we are speaking wisdom, and we are speaking the hidden wisdom that God had planned for us, even before the world began, for this day and time. It flows out of us when we get in the presence of God, in the secret place, and we begin to worship Him. When we begin to speak in an unknown tongue, the Spirit of God is speaking through us. He is using our voice. He is using our vocal chords, but He is praying the perfect will of God.
When you pray in the Holy Ghost, it is a mystery to you, but you can pray for an interpretation. When the interpretation comes, you can deposit that in your heart and act on it because now it is in your comprehension. You now know the answer.
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory (1 Corinthians 2:7-8).
Why didn’t the rulers of this age know? Because it was a mystery to them.
But as it is written: Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him. But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. (1 Corinthians 2:9-13)
We have the one living on the inside of us who knows everything that is happening on the outside of us. Doesn’t it make sense for us to get in fellowship with Him, to get in His presence, so we can know those mysteries?
But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned (1 Corinthians 2:14).
Your natural mind will fight you over spiritual things. Your natural mind does not comprehend the things of the Spirit. If something is happening in your life and you don’t have the answer, go into your secret place. Enter into praise and worship and the presence of God. Begin to speak in your unknown tongue and receive the answer in your spirit to the mystery. Take the time to release your faith while you are praying in the Spirit. As you receive the mysteries of God, you will also receive peace and comfort knowing that God has deposited the answer in you.
