“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”- 1 Corinthians 2:14

It’s quite easy to be natural and natural-minded. So many Christians today are natural-minded and can read the Bible and never go anywhere in their relationship with God and other Christians. Have you ever said something to a person and they did not understand what you were talking about when you were talking about the things of God? Have you ever talked to a Christian and told them something about the Bible and they did not understand? Why does this happen? It happens because many people think that you can just read the Bible like a book and this is not true. It needs to be read with your inner spirit. The Bible is an awesome book of life and blessings but if it is read with no discernment then it will not be understood.

Many times I have seen people come to Christ and stay in that same place year after year. They do not understand worship and they do not understand miracles and they do not understand the Bible. The reason why this is so, is that they have not spent quality time with the Lord in the Word and in prayer. When Christians stay in the same place spiritually that they have been in for a long time, and have not found Joy or even released their Faith, it is due to a lack of Word and relationship with the Father.

Things that are Spirit born can only be discerned through the Spirit of God. Things that are earthly and natural can be discerned through one of your five physical senses. The Spirit of God is not based on feelings and emotions and the senses. The things of the Spirit are discerned through the Spirit of God. The whole Bible is Spirit based. The only way for you to discern the Word of God, is through the Spirit of God that is in you!

Start your day by reading your Bible with a notebook and pen in hand and start asking God how to apply the scriptures to your everyday walk and talk. The Holy Spirit will begin to speak to you and you will start getting fresh revelation everyday. Fresh revelation is like coffee to your Spirit it gives you a good jolt and will wake you up. Be Blessed and be a Blessing to someone today!
