Revelation is how God makes Himself known to us, His Creation. Without His divine revelation we would not know God’s Presence, His thoughts, or His mysteries revealed. We need revelation to unlock Holy scriptures and what the Holy Spirit whispers to our hearts.
How does God give us revelation?
His revelations come through His Holy Spirit that lives in each one of us. It’s His form of communicating with us on a deeper, spiritual level daily.
How to receive revelation:
- Become like a child: Humble yourself and be teachable, like a child. If your heart and mind are not open to receive, revelation from God becomes harder to gain.
- Obey the will of God: Obedience, or a surrendered heart, attracts revelation. By doing God’s will, you are delighting in the Lord. When you delight in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart.
- Become God’s friend: Treat God like your friend. Friends share secrets and trust one another deeply. When you have that kind of relationship with the Lord, you will begin to experience revelation from God.
- Have a moldable heart: God builds upon that which is willing to be constructed upon. If you keep your heart open to learn, God will pour out and share His secrets.
- Live in faith: Ask God to increase your faith to receive revelation. We need to have faith in that when we ask, God will be faithful to give.
