Wisdom From The Spirit
"The Spirit searches all things, even the things of God.
For who among men knows the thoughts of a man
except the man's spirit within him?
In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God
except the Spirit of God.
We have not received the spirit of the world but the
Spirit who is from God, that we may understand what
God has freely given us.
This is what we speak, not in words taught us by
human wisdom, but in words taught by the Spirit,
expressing spiritual truths in spiritual words.
The man without the Spirit does not accept the
things that come from the Spirit of God, for they
are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand
them, because they are spiritually discerned."
1 Corinthians 2: 10b- 14
Those who do not have the Spirit of God in them cannot understand the words of God for they are spiritually discerned. They are all foolishness to him. Not so with those who have the Spirit of God dwelling in them. They will understand the word of God for the Spirit who has inspired them is the same Spirit that dwells in the temples of their hearts. This wisdom comes from the Spirit of God and was given to us to guide us in our spiritual walk in life. They are the words that come from the mouth of God and were given to us to sustain us spiritually.
