How to know the secrets of God?
The only way we can search for the deep secrets of God is through the Spirit of God.
But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets. 1 Corinthians 2:10 NLT
The Holy Spirit of God is the revealer of the hidden secrets and the mind of God to those who have received Him, those who have welcomed Him and those who surrender to Him.
Action: If you lack the Holy Spirit ask from God and He will surely release His Spirit to you and He will reveal mighty things to you.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him!” Luke 11:13
Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’ Jeremiah 33:3
NB: If you are reading this and you are yet to give your life to Jesus Christ, first, you need to surrender your life to Jesus Christ before asking God to give you the Holy Spirit.
