Life in the Spirit – Surprised by God
God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for him,
    for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
God blesses those who mourn,
    for they will be comforted.
God blesses those who are humble,
    for they will inherit the whole earth.
God blesses those who hunger and thirst for justice,
    for they will be satisfied. Matthew 5:3-6 (NLT)
God’s ways are not our ways; they are infinitely higher, infinitely better, they truly lead to the abundant life. As we approach God’s Word humbly, as followers, as learners who need much instruction, the Holy Spirit can purify our minds and hearts so that we can understand His ways and walk in them.
