9 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.”
10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 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. 12 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. (1 Cor. 2: 9-12 NKJV)
How wonderful it is to know that GOD lives within us! As I go about the day – I have the PERSON, the Presence of HIS SPIRIT in my life!!! That is a comforting and empowering concept to grasp. The closest friend I have, the most intimate confidant, is GOD.
I will receive some great, exciting gifts this Christmas. My family loves me and they always surprise me with thoughtful gifts. But I will never receive a gift as wonderful as that given to me by GOD – HE has given me HIMSELF.
I hope HE is yours as well.
