Scripture reading for July 8th: 1st Corinthians 2, Psalm 135, Proverbs 11
Key Scriptures: 1st Corinthians 2:9-12 “But, as it is written, “What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man imagined, what God has prepared for those who love Him”–these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit of God searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.”
Paul explained that as the spirit of a person knows the inner thoughts of that person, so God’s Holy Spirit knows all about God and His thoughts that are hidden from the natural man. But God gives His people the gift of the Holy Spirit that they might know and receive the hidden things freely given to those who repent and believe on His Son.
Faith Confession: Thank You Lord for the precious gift of the Holy Spirit living in me and revealing Whose I am and what You have freely given me by grace through faith in Jesus Christ. Help me to freely share this amazing treasure!
Proverbs 11:24-25 “One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withhold what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.”
