Daily Bread 8/3/2022


Daily Bread – August 3, 2022 (The Fourth Day – Genesis 1:14-19) 1 Corinthians 2:12 – But we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Spirit of God that we may know what has been bestowed to us by God. God’s Spirit In Us Producing His Results We have God’s Spirit in us! Someone in whom the Spirit of God may be found is certainly to be recognized with insight and wisdom that is not earthly, even as Joseph was in Egypt and Daniel in Babylon (Genesis 41:38; Daniel 4:8,9,18, 5:11,14). In the Old Testament, the Spirit of God came upon men, such as Gideon and Samson, who were given extraordinary abilities of power and strength (Judges 6:34, 15:14). The Spirit of God would bestow the abilities to be skillful in the arts and all kinds of workmanship as was granted to Bezaleel (Exodus 31:1-5). Those in the Old Testament were given divine ability to be priests, prophets, kings, and mighty men – all by the Spirit of God. When we were born of God, He not only gave us a new spirit and a new heart, but He put His Spirit in us and gave us the divine ability to be sons of God (Ezekiel 36:26; John 1:12, 3:6). The Spirit of the living God is dwelling in us right now, at this very moment (1 Corinthians 3:16; Romans 8:9). When we consider the reality of how we have the Spirit of God, then certainly we must recognize there is nothing outside of our reach (Philippians 4:13; Ephesians 3:19, 6:10; Romans 5:17, 8:31-39). The wisdom and knowledge of God reaches beyond all the abilities and insights of mankind. God’s strength and His power knows no limitations. All we have to do is to be willing to be lead and directed by the Spirit of God, and the things of God will be known to us and revealed in our lives (Romans 8:1,14; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Galatians 5:25; 2 Corinthians 3:3).
