‘He made known to us the mystery of His will.’ Ephesians 1:9 NIV
What a joy it is when the will of God is no longer a mystery, because He has made it ‘known to us’. Suddenly your outlook is different, your attitude changes, and fear can no longer play games with your mind. Now you know—and knowledge is power! The Bible says, ‘The people who know their God will display strength and take action.’ (Daniel 11:32 NAS) There are times you know things in your spirit that you can’t figure out in your head. And it can cause you to be misunderstood. You can carry the knowledge of a breakthrough or a blessing in your spirit long before it happens. The Bible says, ‘We know about these things because God has sent His Spirit to tell us.’ (1 Corinthians 2:10 TLB) When God imparts wisdom to you, it puts you in a position to succeed in accomplishing His will. Jesus spoke about counting the cost (Luke 14:28), so you need to recognise He asks us to pay a price (sometimes a high one) to learn the wisdom that places us in a position to receive the rewards of the calling He has for us. ‘We know about these things.’ God can cause you to know something that will change the course of your life. He can show you something during the night that changes how you feel in the morning. In His presence you receive insights that give you purpose, hope, dignity, direction and the strength to get up and fight for what He promised you in His Word. So get into His presence today—and stay there until He reveals to you His will in the matter.
