My Thoughts on 26/05/2020

These days if we want to find out about something we will most probably use a search engine like Google. The gift of Knowledge is not the same as information, or knowing about something. The knowledge given to us by the Holy Spirit is very different from human knowledge. It helps us to distinguish between what to believe and what not to believe.

When we receive the gift of knowledge, it enables us to discover God’s will in all things. “For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). It enables us to see things from perspective.

Let us pray today:

Come, Holy Spirit, increase in us your gift of knowledge that we may know you more intimately. Help us to see more clearly what to believe and what not to believe. Help us to recognise how you would have us act so that our behaviour may show forth your infinite love.
