1 Corinthians 2:12-13 (NKJV)
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Computers can control very many external devices like printers, joysticks, speakers, scanners, etc. But for this to happen, their respective drivers must first be installed in the operating system of the computer. This is what gives the computer knowledge about the hardware and enable it to use the hardware.
When a hardware driver is installed, it informs the computer about the hardware and enables it to use the hardware. No matter how new and perfect the hardware you connect to a computer is, if the driver software is not installed, the computer would not be able to recognize and use it.
No matter what we have been freely given by God, if we do not receive knowledge and empowerment from the Holy Spirit, we would not be able to use it. If we only have mental knowledge of these things, we are unable to utilize them and walk in them. The kind of knowledge given by the Holy Spirit doesn’t just inform, it empowers.
You may know that ‘by His stripes, you are healed,’ but when the Holy Spirit furnishes that knowledge in your heart, it will empower you to walk in that reality.
Go into today remembering that the knowledge furnished by the Holy Spirit does not just help you know the things freely given to you by God, it helps you receive them.
Prayer: Lord, help me to know and receive all your gifts by the Spirit. Amen.
