We, of course, have plenty of wisdom to pass on to you once you get your feet on firm spiritual ground, but it’s not popular wisdom, the fashionable wisdom of high-priced experts that will be out-of-date in a year or so. God’s wisdom is something mysterious that goes deep into the interior of his purposes. You don’t find it lying around on the surface. It’s not the latest message, but more like the oldest—what God determined as the way to bring out his best in us, long before we ever arrived on the scene. The experts of our day haven’t a clue about what this eternal plan is. If they had, they wouldn’t have killed the Master of the God-designed life on a cross. That’s why we have this Scripture text: No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, Never so much as imagined anything quite like it— What God has arranged for those who love him. But you’ve seen and heard it because God by his Spirit has brought it all out into the open before you. The Spirit, not content to flit around on the surface, dives into the depths of God, and brings out what God planned all along. Who ever knows what you’re thinking and planning except you yourself? The same with God—except that he not only knows what he’s thinking, but he lets us in on it. God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving us. We don’t have to rely on the world’s guesses and opinions. We didn’t learn this by reading books or going to school; we learned it from God, who taught us person-to-person through Jesus, and we’re passing it on to you in the same firsthand, personal way.
1 Corinthians 2:6-10 MSG
This passage is so beautiful. It is talking about the connection between us as spiritual believers and God.
“What God determined how to bring out the best in us- long before we were ever on the scene.”
We read this line in this passage and it tells us the truth about our Jesus’ heart. It let’s us in on a secret. God only wants good for us. Wait what. I thought I already knew this. Well yeah you probobally do but do you believe it. A good God wants good gifts for his children. I think that’s the truth. It’s so simple it naturally sets you free.
He lavishes love on his daughters and sons and plants divine passion inside of us. He asks us to look a little deeper. For God is not a shallow God. He’s a God who loves, who hopes, who chooses us every time. A God who never gives up on us. So don’t give up on yourself today. You got this. There’s a creator cheering you on.
