1Cor. 2:11-13 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God. These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Man has limited knowledge, but our Lord is all-knowing. He begins to give us glimpses into His plans as we pray in the Spirit. As we press into God, we begin to have bits of His wisdom unveiled to us. He begins to show us the “deep things” of the Spirit. 1 Cor.2:10 tells us that we can know what God is going to do: “God has revealed them”. “Them” refers to the things God has prepared for those who love Him. These things are revealed to us through His Spirit. They are no longer mysteries. He reveals things to us by His Spirit: “For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God” (1 Cor. 2:10b-11 NKJV). The Spirit of God within you knows your innermost thoughts. He “searches all things… the deep things of God.” By praying in the Spirit, He begins to reveal or unfold God’s wisdom to you. When you pray in tongues you are not praying with your natural mind but from your spirit energized by the Holy Spirit. Your mind doesn’t understand what you are praying but you are touching the unseen wisdom of God.
This helps us in our personal lives; dealing with family, ministry or business situations because we become people with insider, privileged information. The mysteries of this great universe are known by the Spirit of God. He knows what is happening across the globe. He knows the plan He has personally ordained for your life and my life. A revival lies ahead of us, and He also has that clearly in focus! God doesn’t want to keep these things a mystery hidden from you. Pray in the Spirit and you will find yourself touching the hidden wisdom of God.
