Graham Cooke: pgs.40-41
At the beginning of our spiritual journey, none of us know
the adventures God has in store. We can’t really comprehend
who we’re called to be in His Kingdom. To discover our place,
we must seek out wisdom and revelation from God. Without an
intimate relationship with Him, we’ll never find our way. Our
inheritance will pass us by; our future may be something other
than we could have realized.
To move out of our inadequacies and into a significant place
in the Kingdom, we must allow the Holy Spirit to work in our
life. The Spirit will help us upgrade our worship, praise and
adoration. When we learn to worship in spirit and in truth, as
Jesus implored us to in John 4:23-24, we will see ourselves in a
way we have never experienced before.
Worship attracts this
revelation. When we get
into a place of worship, we
start to discover things
that God wants us to know.
Scales fall off of our eyes,
and our minds are renewed. We begin to have dreams, see
visions, and have thoughts so profound that we have to write
In Ephesians 1, Paul prayed that we would have “the spirit of
wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.”
“WORSHIP IS GOD’S ENJOYMENT
OF US AND OUR ENJOYMENT OF
HIM. WORSHIP IS A RESPONSE TO
THE FATHER-CHILD RELATIONSHIP.”
This knowledge is all about what God wants to be for us. This revelation gives
us energy and peace; it overcomes who we are.
When I’m overwhelmed, I’m always rescued by the same
spirit of wisdom and revelation about who God is for me. I get
out of the trap of my inadequacy and insecurity by remembering
everything He has done for me. In our weakness, He comes
and kisses us and calls us again.
