A Daily Devotion for Thursday, June 9
1 Corinthians 2:14-16
The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgements about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.
Because we have the Holy Spirit living within us, “we have the mind of Christ.” These verses highlight for me the importance of maintaining and strengthening that connection. They compliment the instructions, “Pray without ceasing.” Discernment is a byproduct of growing closer to God. The more I pray, the more I will be able to see, hear and understand.
Oh, God, thank you for hearing my prayers. Thank you for allowing me to hear you when you are granting me wisdom. Amen
