But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God. —1 Corinthians 2:10
The Spirit of God lets us down into the deep things, even the deep things of God. Peter fell into a trance upon the house-top, and God spoke to him three times. Paul and Silas started out to visit converts. Paul had a vision; he saw a man of Macedonia holding out his hands and saying, "Come over and help us." He knew it was the call of God, so they changed their course and went to a place altogether different than their plans.
When Paul and Silas began to preach and were arrested, they might have thought they had been mistaken about God's call. But Paul knew God, and he never doubted it was God's voice that had called him. They might have said, "We would have had many people to preach to if we had not come here, but now we have been put in prison with our feet fast in the stocks." The devil put them in there, but God permitted it, and God delivered them.
There are many wonderful things for us in these last days—demonstrations of God's power which the natural man cannot understand. There are other powers too, and many do not know the difference. God's power is the greatest, and is the only power that will bring peace to your soul.
God, reveal to me the deep things of Your
Spirit that I may know You. Amen.
