{ Day 318 }

I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. —Ephesians 1:17-19

Neither functioning in New Testament prophetic ministry nor moving in the supernatural ministry of the Holy Spirit is an exact science. These things challenge our improper control issues and our religious codes. They've been designed by God for this very purpose! We are called to embrace the mystery of God and not to lust after neatly tying up every doctrinal or philosophical loose end that we encounter. Our hunger for a personal relationship with God Himself should overpower this drive within us to perfectly comprehend every fact. Our humility before God should instruct us that we will never have all the answers, at least not in this age. We are hard enough to live with as it is. As long as we're in this flesh, I don't think possessing omniscience would help us be any easier to live with.

{ PRAYER STARTER }

Father, as much as I want to know more about You, my heart's desire is to have a dynamic intimate relationship with You.

True Christianity is a dynamic relationship
with a living God, and it cannot be
reduced to formulas
and dry orthodoxy.
