No one knows you more than yourself. It’s impossible to see a man’s thoughts or imagine his intentions.
Only that person knows his deepest thoughts and desires.
The only person who knows even your hidden impulses is that individual’s spirit. But imagine we as man have been given God’s Spirit and through his Spirit we have access even to the hidden things Of God.
There is nothing about God that is hidden from man. In the book of 1 Corinthians 2 Paul describes this symbiotic relationship. Symbiosis is a close ecological relationship between the individuals of two (or more) different species.
Sometimes this relationship benefits both species, sometimes the other benefits at another’s expense. Imagine the Spirit of the Creator of the world indwells us and all the knowledge he used to create the world even all that power is somewhere inside of us.
He not only dwells in us but his presence in and around us sustains us. One can only access the benefits of this relationship through the knowledge. The more knowledge you have the more of him you can take advantage of. Areas of God you are ignorant of are areas of God you will never experience. The bible declares that my people perish for lack of knowledge. Imagine God indwells us in his fullness yet we are vexed ( confused , overwhelmed ) with the simple things of life. What then is stopping man from accessing this treasure chest of information or power.
The Bible says they made the word of God of non effect because of their religion. God never wanted Christianity to be a religion.
When Jesus came, his purpose was to restore man back to God. Even from the book of Genesis God always wanted a relationship with men. But man corrupted God’s intentions and became religious. Because of this it became hard for them to relate with God.
Religion is what has stopped man from discovering the fullness of the relationship we have with God or even the advantages of his indwelling in us. There is so much to God than we have yet to understand and we have limited ourselves because we have approached him religiously.
Jesus speaking to his disciples and us said I will not call you servants for servants have no access to the secrets in the house. But I will call you friends because secrets are shared with friends . We have approached God as servants and not as friends and this has closed our eyes to the reality of who we are in him and who he is in us.
God’s voice came walking in the Garden because he desired fellowship and desired a friend. We are called to be friends with God. We can choose to be servants and remain limited and ignorate or we can relate to God as friends . When we become friends he shares even the deepest secrets he has. Remember his Spirit is already in us and through his spirit he created all things including gold and diamonds. His spirit knows where all the treasures are hidden he desires to talk to us about anything we desire to know but we are the only ones that limit him. I believe it’s time to breakout of the religious chains and discover who God really is to us.
