Colossians 1:9 – Because of this also, from the day we heard, ceased not to pray for you; also asking that you might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Part 2 ~ The Divine Logic Of The Word
Through the knowledge of the Word, we receive a supernatural supply of the Spirit in spiritual wisdom and understanding (Ephesians 1:17-19; 2 Peter 1:3-4; 2 Peter 1:8-11). The knowledge of God affords us the ability to more perfectly know what God desires us to do, and supplies us with the insight and revelation to know we have the resources of God to do the impossible. By fully knowing the greatness of His power and authority that has been entrusted to us, we are strengthened by His glorious power to do the exploits of the Kingdom (Ephesians 1:17-23; Daniel 11:32). The Word of God will enlighten you and will quicken you! The Word of God will build you up to walk in your spiritual inheritance in Christ Jesus (Acts 20:32; Ephesians 1:18); and the truth of the Word of God is what the Holy Spirit has come to lead us and guide us into.
Peter said that as newborn babes we should long for the spiritual nourishment provided for us by the spiritual food supplied in the Word of God. The passage in 1 Peter 2:2 literally says: “the pure ‘logicon’ of the milk.” Although the Greek word ‘logicon’ is related to ‘logos’ (the Greek for “word”), it has a different meaning. This particular word is found only twice in the New Testament: in 1 Peter 2:2 and in Romans 12:1. In Romans 12:1, the meaning is more accurately captured where it is translated, “reasonable.” The word refers to how we think, and how we speak.
We think and speak based upon the logic by which we reason and come to understand the world – and how we are to function within it. The divine logic of the Word will cause us to think and speak the word of faith (2 Corinthians 4:13; Romans 10:10; Hebrews 10:23; Philemon 1:6). The divine logic will cause us to believe we can do all things through Christ Who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13). We will have a revelation that nothing will be impossible for those who live by the Word. If we long for the spiritual nourishment supplied to us by the Word of God, then we will be filled with the divine ability to function in the faith of God; and we will have the proofs to back up our claims that Jesus arose from the dead – and is alive today!
