Metamorphosis – Except That…

Recently i heard that, “A good teacher teaches people to memorize. A great teacher teaches people to think.” How true that is. If i simply memorize, what is taught, at some point i will come up against something that’s not been taught or that i have not memorized. At that moment i am at a stand still. BUT… if i learn how to think i will be able to come up with a solution to anything. If i know what so and so thinks then i can have what so and so has. This applies specifically when it comes to knowing what God thinks! i want to know His every thought! Now don’t throw any stones yet, but if i know what or how God thinks then i can have what God has. Just pause and meditate on that for a while, let it sink in and while you do let me give you the word to support this idea. It comes from 1 Corinthians 2 and i don’t care which translation you read it from it still says the same thing.

Verses 10-13 (MSG.) The spirit, not content to flit around on the surface, dives into the depths of God, and brings out what God planned all along. Who ever knows what you’re thinking and planning except you yourself? The same with God—EXCEPT THAT… he not only knows what he’s thinking, but he lets ed in on it.

This has never caught my attention before. “EXCEPT THAT… he not only knows what he’s thinking, but he lets ed in on it.”

What’s that look like? “God offers a full report on the gifts of life and salvation that he is giving me.” No secrets regarding these matters. If I know what God is thinking then I don’t need all the questions. There is a full report of the gifts of life and my salvation. It’s been revealed. AND…. i am to attend to what He has revealed.

But instead of attending to what’s been revealed, the full report on the gifts of life and salvation, i attend to what the rest of the verse says i’m not to. ed you don’t have to rely on the world’s guesses and opinions. ed you are not going to and have not learned this by reading books or going to schooled you learned it from God, who taught you person-to-person through Jesus, and it’s being passed on to you in the same firsthand, personal way.

Choice… an act or instance of choosing, the right, power, or opportunity to choose. God offers a full report on what He is thinking as does the world. As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.
