Today’s Inspiration: Most of us search for our life plans and purpose from the world but the truth to the matter is, they are all found in our hearts. And the matter of the truth is God knows our hearts better than we do.
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.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.” I Corinthians 2:9-10. Let us not judge anyone by appearance.
Only the Holy Spirit can reveal the truth in our hearts through the Word of God, and the truth will set us free. John 8:32. The world operates intellectually but the kingdom of God moves intuitively, where the former depends on head knowledge but the latter leans on the heart knowledge of God.
I remembered an atheist man who cames to alpha regularly but never accepted Christ. On the contrary he challenges all the evidences of the gospel. No intellectual answers can satisfy, convince or win him over. While everyone has given up on him, a brother moved by the Holy Spirit invited him to a personal session to hear of His plight in life. He was badly wounded emotionally by his father at an early age, and faced many home dysfunctions during his childhood. God opened up his festering wounds and brought healing to his wounded soul. Eventually he got saved and baptised. Praise God! Things are not what they seem they are but there is always hope in evangelism in the Spirit.
Prayer: O Lord My God, help me close my carnal eyes and look into the hearts of the souls around me, with your eyes of truth, wisdom, and compassion. Let thy Holy Spirit lead me to search the deep things of God to set the captives free into your sweet grace of salvation, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
