Chronological Bible: December 2, Who do you want whispering in your ear?…
- 2 Thessalonians 1:1-3:18
- Acts 18:12-22
- Acts 18:23-19:22
- 1 Corinthians 1:1-4:21
“…For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.” –1 Corinthians 2:10-12, ESV
The angel and devil image, one sitting on each shoulder, isn’t too far off from what we face every day. Our spirit, submitted to the will of God, partners with the Spirit of God to pull for the good decisions. And our natural, sinful self pulls for the opposite. Who do you want whispering in your ear? Which voice do you want having the stage in the play of your life?
The Spirit of God digs the depths of God in ways we could never understand. And God gave that Spirit to you, that you may live in the glory of His will. You gained access to the very deepest thoughts of God when you claimed Christ as your Savior. Don’t throw away the richness of this opportunity.
