I Corinthians 2:10 (NLT)
But it was to us that God revealed these things by His Spirit. For His Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.
It is the Holy Spirit who illuminates the minds of men and women to enable them to comprehend spiritual truths. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know Him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe (Eph 1:17-19 NIV). In Jesus’ day, the people whose hearts were earnestly seeking the Lord in humility recognized the sound of God’s voice in Jesus’ words (John 6:45) and they responded accordingly. Do you recognize when God is speaking to you—through the Bible, through the pastor, through a friend?
