Lord, teach me would be a useful part of our prayers, I believe.
I have hit points in my ministry where I will call out to Him as I pace our auditorium alone, God, would you teach me what you have always wished someone would learn? Would you open to me a world of understanding that no one has yet thought to seek?
I want to know those types of things. Of course I want to learn from what others of have learned. But don't we also want to know from God what no man has yet to discover? And, don't we believe there is yet much to be unearthed from the Bible and His will?
Do we not believe the Word is deeper than the chemist's ability to discover what has yet to be found? Do we not grasp the fact that God's secrets are buried out in the open where only the baby-like will find them? Surely we haven't taken on the stance that heaven has emptied all of it's wisdom....James 1:5 and 3:13-18.
It seems that nearly every time I spend moments with Him, seeking the hidden, something usually arises regarding the Spirit.
Why do we not seek continuance and extension of Truth?
Could it be because we don't want to know; that additional truth might nullify errors we have always called Truth? Could it be that we have it well-embedded into our senses that the brotherhood believes what it believes and to buck the system will be costly?
A bigger question would be are we afraid to admit that we are wrong so it would just be best not to find out?
This can happen. It has happened. I will happen.
May we believe there is more Truth to yet unfold and, too, may we be unafraid as we grow into it.
