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. 1 Corinthians 2:12 (NKJV)
It is strange that people use the statement “I think” a lot of times and also use the statement “I don’t know” a lot of times.
In other words most people think a lot but don’t know a lot.
Even in any given challenge people tell themselves or others “think think think”. Then they are seen frantically scratching their heads for answers. There are even notable world famous thinkers.
But believers should know more than they think. We should be knowers more than thinkers. We ought to live and walk more by what we know than by what we think. Here we are not talking about head knowledge but heart knowledge. Thinking is of the head or mind but true knowing is of the spirit or heart. The all-knowing God has given us His Spirit so we may know the things He has freely given to us. We have a knowing on the inside of us concerning everything that pertains to life.
1 John 2:20 (NKJV) But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and you know all things. This is God’s very own knowing. God sent His Spirit into our heart. Galatians 4:6 And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out, “Abba, Father.” The Holy Spirit abides in us forever. John 14:16, 17. Because the Holy Spirit is joined with our spirit 1Corinthians 6:17, we know in our spirit or heart exactly what God knows about any given issue, situation or condition.
You know what do in that challenge you are facing.
You have the solution for that physical health problem; you know how to deal wisely in that relationship, that work issue and those finances. You can handle that difficult person or situation. You know what deal or business to invest yourself, your time your resources and your money in; you know the right people and place to do business with; you know who to marry; you know how to take that team, project, business, to first class top success. It’s all in your spirit because the Holy Spirit of God who knows all things perfectly dwells in you and He’s always telling it all to you. So pay attention, listen to, and follow your heart or spirit. Never let your head talk and reason you out of what your heart knows and is saying. Always go by what you know and hear in your heart. The head and its thinking have their proper place in life and that’s behind, following the knowing in our hearts.
