1 Corinthians 2:11-14 (NIV)
For who knows a person’s thoughts except their own spirit within them? In the same way no one knows the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. What we have received is not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may understand what God has freely given us. This is what we speak, not in words taught us by human wisdom but in words taught by the Spirit, explaining spiritual realities with Spirit-taught words.

God wants us to know what HE would have us to do in every single situation of life. He does not want us just wondering around without His wisdom and His advice, hoping to make the right decisions. This is precisely one of the reasons He sent the wonderful Holy Spirit to indwell every believer. Jesus told the disciples, it is for YOUR GOOD that I am going away. I am going away so that the comforter can come." He was excited about the Holy Spirit coming to the earth to dwell within the believer. The Holy Spirit wants to reveal the mind of God to you everyday. He wants to show you what God would have you to do in every situation and decision in life. If it is important to you, it is important to God. So what is the secret, how do you get the mind of God for yourself? You simply invite the Holy Spirit to show you the mind of God. The scriptures teach that one of the Holy Spirit's responsibilities to the believer is to teach us and show us the things God has freely given us. God has freely given us His wisdom already through Christ and we tap in to that through inviting the Holy Spirit to reveal the mind of God to us. What Jesus was to the disciples, the Holy Spirit is to the believer today. The Holy Spirit is the agent of the Godhead at work in the earth today and He wants to help you in every area of life. He is just waiting for you to invite Him to do so. This is what I say "Holy Spirit, you are my helper, my counselor and my advocate. You have been sent to me to help me and I need your help. You know the mind of God in every situation of my life and I am asking you to reveal the mind of God to me concerning situation X,Y,Z. I thank you Holy Spirit that you reveal the Father's mind to me so that I can walk out His will and His desire for this situation and not my own." Then for my own benefit I say, "Father, you said in your Word, that through your Word, you give light and illumination to the open minded. I am open minded to all possible solutions and options. I refuse to be close minded to any option, so I thank you that my heart and my mind are illuminated to your perfect will, plan and purpose in this situation." Then I go about my day and as I need the information, the information comes to me by the Holy Spirit. He is my helper and my teacher everyday, and I am so thankful to Jesus that He sent the Holy Spirit to help me in this life! Thank God for our wonderful helper, the Holy Spirit!
