“The unspiritual self, just as it is by nature, can’t receive the gifts of God’s Spirit. There’s no capacity for them. They seem like so much silliness. Spirit can be known only by spirit—God’s Spirit and our spirits in open communion. Spiritually alive, we have access to everything God’s Spirit is doing…” (I Corinthians 2: 14-15, The Message Bible)
It may seem like the qualities of God, the spiritual sense of Life and its glories, are beyond comprehension. The material presentations seem so large and real. The senses demand our active attention and our trust. We may feel that the Truth of God, His idea, and His heavenly creation, is ethereal stuff—dreamy unreality.
But our spiritual sense knows better. We can’t understand God’s nature and His promises for us if we expect to discover Spirit through matter. We can’t truly behold limitlessness through a lens of limitation. Spirit is known through that place deep within us that God put there. It is that space in our heart that simply feels right and uplifted and comforted and alive when it hears the Truth.
And as we live in this trust of what we know is right and good in spite of the senses, we are truly alive. This spiritual living is expansive. It fills us up because we are actively seeing our connection with abundance—with God’s infinite provision of intelligence, substance, insight, guidance, and boundless Love. We are seeing our true spiritual nature, and this grateful awareness expands our vision and allows us to generously and enthusiastically share our blessings with others as well!
