Ephesians 1:9 NIV

When we teach someone something, we impart some of our wisdom to them. It can give that person a new understanding of something and can reveal something that had once been a mystery. And this is exactly what God does for us. We will never fully understand God, or His ways, but He’ll show us things and impart wisdom into our lives. Sometimes, God reveals His will for our lives. Maybe we’ve been praying and wondering what we should be doing with our lives. It can be scary when we don’t know what path we should be taking. But when we ask, God will slowly begin to reveal His purpose for our lives. It might be the career path we should take, the church we should go to, or even the person on our street who we should talk to. God can also reveal things to us about His character. That revelation often comes through reading the Bible. We can read something we’ve read hundreds of times before and suddenly realise something new about God. God also imparts promises to us about breakthroughs and blessings that He’s got in store for us. And He imparts all this by His Spirit. The Bible says, ‘We know about these things because God has sent His Spirit to tell us’ (1 Corinthians 2:10 TLB). God can cause us to know something that will change the course of our lives. He can show us something during the night that changes how we feel in the morning. In His presence we receive insights that give us purpose, hope, direction, and the strength to get up and fight for what He promised us. So let’s get into His presence today – and let’s stay there until He reveals something new to us.
