UNDERSTANDING THE MYSTERIES OF GOD!
Life is full of mysteries but with God, you can get revelation knowledge of his plan for your life. We, sometimes, reason that God's way are not our ways and settle for second best but let's look at that scripture in its full content-
" Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD."
Notice what this says...."Let the wicked" We are not wicked. We are the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus! (II Cor 5:21) Let's stop making excuses for God and face the facts, we haven't had our breakthrough because of lack of knowledge. What you don't know can hurt you. We need to take advantage of speaking in tongues to better understand God's mysteries in our lives and have a breakthrough.
When you speak in tongues, the enemy doesn't know what you are saying. We need to be careful what we tell God. Why? Because when we pray, the devil is, also, listening to our prayers! In Daniel 10:12-14, an angel had appeared to Daniel. Notice that this angel told Daniel that his prayer was heard on the first day, but there was an obstacle. The prince of Persia withstood this angel for 21 days. The battle in the heavenlies was so intense that he need Michael, the archangel to help him!
I want to focus on the fact that this all could have been avoided if Daniel had the benefits of the New Covenant (New Testament) Had Daniel prayed in tongues, the enemy would not have known what he was praying about and he could have had faster results in prayer! Praying in tongues has its benefits. When we pray in tongues, we are praying mysteries to God.(I Cor 14:2) We might be praying the answer to our problem, but it is a mystery. We might be praying a warning for us or others, but it is a mystery. What's the answer? Let's look at the following-
"Wherefore let him that speaketh in an unknown tongue pray that he may interpret."
(I Cor 14:13)
Yes, God wants you to have knowledge of Life's mysteries, but we have to do our part. We have to pray in tongues and practice hearing from God. As we do this, we will unlock the door to life's mysteries and have the long-awaited answer. God bless!
