Over the last several weeks we have discussed putting our hope and trust in God. When doing so we can receive happiness. We also discussed in length on calling on the name of the Lord. Then we discussed tough topics such as trusting God, even when we think he does not hear our prayers especially when we experience the death of a loved one. Tonight, we will discuss how being filled with the Holy Ghost teaches man the spiritual things of God. The scripture we will use as our source is 1 Corinthians 2:6-16; which teaches us further, with the Holy Ghost, we have the mind of Christ. The reason this is worth discussing is because the scripture also lets us know in verse nine, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love us.” We will talk about how we may have trials and tribulations, hardships and it may appear one trail right after another. Yet, as the scripture suggests God has prepared us for those situations we go through. I have often been quoted as saying, “We have to be careful in our prayers when we ask God to remove the mountain in our life causing us problems. As we know most mountains our not singular and they come in ranges. It is better to ask God to teach you how to get through the mountain; so when the next one arises you are able to get through it.” We will also discuss not only are we prepared but with each trail and tribulation it teaches us what God is capable of. I am reminded of another scripture which simply states, “God puts on us no more than we can bear.” Prayerfully, tonight’s discussion will encourage someone listening who is going through trials and tribulations to see they have been prepared and their heart won’t be so heavy.
