“For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:8).
Something beautiful the Spirit of God does in our lives is that apart from imparting our spirits with spiritual information, He can also cause us to have knowledge of everyday events.
Knowledge, in our opening verse above, is the Greek word “gnosis,” which is knowledge based on science or intellectual activity. God can cause you to have mental prowess. He can supernaturally impart to you abstract or scientific knowledge that’s based on mental ingenuity.
This is something we need to be more conscious of as God’s children. We’ve walked with the Lord in the manifestation of the gifts of the Spirit in certain areas, but there’s much more for us to explore. We need to become more conscious that the Spirit of God is the Spirit of knowledge; He knows all things.
Therefore, He can give you a word of knowledge in the field of chemistry, medicine, law, engineering, or business. All you need is to make yourself available to Him to work with.
“Christ Jesus is the embodiment of all wisdom and knowledge.” (Colossians 2:3), and He made all things: the plants, animals—everything in the world (Colossians1:16).
Therefore, He can teach you about them. The world is looking for solutions, and God wants His kids to be the solution providers to the world’s problems. He can give you a word of knowledge about your career.
The very thought of this is exciting; that you can be praying in your closet and receive a word of knowledge that’ll be the solution the world has been waiting for. I’ve experienced things like this several times, where I was able to explain natural things through knowledge imparted to me by the Spirit of God.
You can receive a word of knowledge from the Spirit of God about your health, job, business, academics and finances. And God can tell you about it such that you could be the first to discover and educate the whole world on a new and different use for something as common as the sand.
