No eye has seen
No ear has heard
No heart has perceived
All that the Lord has prepared
All that He has made and keeps ready
For those who love Him
Jesus Christ …
BUT to us[those who love and obey Him]
The Holy Spirit reveals these things hidden from the world.
Thank You Lord Jesus, that the power to witness Your truths to the world does not rest on human wisdom or my persuasive words! Thank You that it’s the power of Your Spirit flowing through me, it’s Your Spirit that stirs the minds of the hearers, I need only to be obedient to Your Spirit. Help me to trust You and not my own understanding. Help me follow Your lead today and always.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5, 9-13 AMP
4 And my language and my message were not set forth in persuasive (enticing and plausible) words of wisdom, but they were in demonstration of the [Holy] Spirit and power [a proof by the Spirit and power of God, operating on me and stirring in the minds of my hearers the most holy emotions and thus persuading them],
5 So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God. …
9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [all that] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed].
10 Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the [Holy] Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny].
11 For what person perceives (knows and understands) what passes through a man’s thoughts except the man’s own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns (comes to know and comprehend) the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God.
12 Now we have not received the spirit [that belongs to] the world, but the [Holy] Spirit Who is from God, [given to us] that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts [of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly] bestowed on us by God.
13 And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the [Holy] Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language [to those who possess the Holy Spirit].
