Mark Hankins once said, “A breakthrough in revelation enables you to see things from God’s perspective.”  He also said, “Something’s not necessary unless it’s necessary.”  To me it was an interesting remark, and  as I thought about it, I began to consider “revelation knowledge,” ……….the things God gives us understanding about that we couldn’t grasp except for His divine impartation.  This subject of  “revelation” isn’t taught much, even though it is such a necessary ingredient in our everyday Christian life.  1 Samuel 3:10, “The boy Samuel ministered before the Lord under Eli. In those days the word of the Lord was rare; there were not many visions.”  Rare really has the idea of valuable or precious, and the word “visions” is the same as “revelation.”  When God speaks to us, it’s like removing the lid from a delicious smelling pot of soup, and discovering what it really contains.  There’s nothing on earth like it that brings such satisfaction!   Paul’s letters contain many prayers, and in Ephesians, 1:17, there is a powerful prayer he penned about spiritual wisdom or revelation.  “ I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.”  The believer’s life is all about knowing Him better, and so I pray this one often for myself and others.  Remember this, “A breakthrough in revelation enables you to see things from God’s perspective.”
