“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14, NLT)
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.” (Ephesians 1:17, NIV)
Practicing the concepts of KingdomNomics is an outgrowth of our relationship with Jesus Christ. He progressively transforms our attitudes, thinking, feelings and actions as his Word invades the depths of our being.
When we receive Christ, he takes up residence inside us and begins molding us into his likeness. This is not a work we do; it is a work of the Holy Spirit.
Paul prayed that God would give us a Spirit of wisdom and revelation to know these basic truths. Again we see the word “revelation.” We progress in our Christian walk only to the extent that Christ reveals himself to us, and to the extent we are willing to submit to him living out his life in us.
When we have fellowship with the Holy Spirit, we can expect to see the reality of Christ living in our life. This gift of God is prompted by our loving God in response to what he has done for us.
“But God has shown us these things through the Spirit. The Spirit searches out all things, even the deep secrets of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:10, NCV)
“Now we did not receive the spirit of the world, but we received the Spirit that is from God so that we can know all that God has given us.” (1 Corinthians 2:12, NCV)
Only through communion with the Spirit will God reveal what he wants us to know.
Today, ask yourself:
Am I in synch with the Spirit of God so I can receive whatever revelation he chooses to reveal to me?
Lord, give me a willing spirit to allow you to perform what you desire to do in my life.
