I Corinthians 2:6-16
verses 10-11: but God has revealed it to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep 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.
I am blessed this morning by a “rereading” of these words. The character and substance of the Spirit of God has a richer meaning than I had understood. The Holy Spirit is God’s soul. It is truly the very essence of Him. This is why Jesus was fully man and fully God. God allows us our own free will, our own soul, but lives within us, with us, when we invite Him in. His Spirit within us gives us more power than we often realize. (For example, the power to turn someone’s day around to joyfulness simply by singing Happy Birthday.) May I appreciate and experience this power, this soul, this Holy Spirit within me. God, help me to do so. Amen
