The Spirit of Wisdom & Revelation…

Beloved of God,

“I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

(Ephesians 1:16-23. ESV)

Taste and See!

It is not by accident that the word taste is first and the word see is second in this Scripture!

When we taste something, we must put it in our mouths and chew on it.  Most of the time we swallow it and it begins to work within us – giving us nutrition, health, and strength.  (If we are eating those things that are good for our bodies.)

It is like that with our spiritual lives. When we study Scripture…when we meditate (chew) on it and let it become a part of us…it gives us strength and enables us to grow.

As we TASTE the Word and as we speak the Word — we begin to get a deeper revelation of the Lord — we begin to SEE that He is good!

We can talk about food — but  we must actually taste it to know if that food is good.

We can talk about God — but it is not until we actually engage with God that we are able to understand and SEE that God is good.  We engage with Him through Bible Study, Prayer, Worship, and Ministry.

As we TASTE and allow the Lord to fill us more and more — we will SEE that He is good!  He is faithful!  He is loving!!  He is everything we need!!
