Apostle Grace Lubega
John 15:4 (KJV); Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me.
The Bible urges us to earnestly desire the best gifts (1 Corinthians 12:31). For example, if you cannot prophesy, the Bible has permitted you to desire the gift of prophecy even though you are not a prophet.
The Greek word ‘zeloo’ used for this earnest desire points to some kind of zeal; of pursuit or searching.
A man who functions by only the gift operates in the realm of the searchable things of God.
But, there is such a thing as the unsearchable things of God. In Jeremiah 33:3, the Lord says that if we call unto Him, He will show us great and unsearchable things.
Paul understood the mystery of the unsearchable things when He speaks in Ephesians 3:8 of the unsearchable riches of Christ and 1 Corinthians 2:10 (AMPC) of things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny.
You can only get to those things by consistently abiding in God. As you do, God exposes you to realms beyond those of an ordinary seeker.
This is where we have been called to function and live. The unsearchable things begin from the place of abiding. In the place of these unsearchable things, the gift ends.

GOLDEN NUGGET: The unsearchable things begin from the place of abiding. In the place of these unsearchable things, the gift ends.
PRAYER: My Father, I thank You for the deep realities of the Spirit that You have declared as my portion. The Bible says that the Spirit searches the bottomless things of God. I cultivate a deep and enduring relationship with Your Spirit to lead me to realms beyond the ordinary seeker. I am positioned as a man of rest and receive what comes to those who know how to abide in You, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
