Holy Spirit Assurances 1 Corinthians 2 10

Read the passage 1 Corinthians 2

(But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.)

1.God wants us to be comforted, thus, the Comforter.

2.God wants us to have Biblical understanding.

3.God wants us to benefit from His understanding. 
That is the believer's daily loading of benefit, the fit of God's word, the fruit of God's word; real application to real needs.

4.God wants our hearts assured of the depth of His counsel.
His truth has no bounds, springs forth and is totally sufficient, is available to any need, increasing or static.

5.God wants us assured we can know Him.
God's desire is that we know Him.  Circumstances in life and opportunity of faith are given so that the believer might know Jesus.

6.God wants us to know of the availability of His riches for our pursuit of Godliness.

7.God spares not to bring to us the honor of His name and word.
Oh! the generosity of His grace.
