Daily Bread – April 18, 2023 (The Third Day – Genesis 1:9-13) Ephesians 1:17 – That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge Him. Spiritual Wisdom & Revelation Spiritual wisdom and revelation is the ability to see, understand, and function in what God has provided for us through redemption and brought to us by the Holy Spirit. The wisdom of God goes far beyond human ability and intelligence. It has been rightly said that wisdom is the ability to apply the knowledge that is gained. God gives us special insight to understand how to live out the life we have been given in Christ Jesus. Men attempt to understand the things of God through their intellectual pursuits and their analytical tools of investigation. Though a limited knowledge of God and the Kingdom of God can be gained by such methods, the knowledge of God is still much greater than men can grasp, and the wisdom to apply that knowledge is completely out of reach through human means. God is the One Who opens our eyes to understand the Scriptures even as Jesus did for His disciples after His resurrection (Luke 24:45; Ephesians 1:18). God wants us to function in the spiritual realm where we are empowered to speak to mountains so they are moved, to raise the dead, and to do greater works than these (John 14:12). However, faith must be activated in our lives – the faith that takes hold of seeing and understanding what God demands. Blessings, Pastor Mark Spitsbergen
