‘These things have now been announced to you through those who preached the gospel to you by the Holy Spirit sent from heaven. Angels desire to look into these things.’ (1 Peter 1:12 HCSB)
Good morning, DearHeart:
Talk about a chosen race we earthlings are – … ‘even the angels desire to look into these things.’ That phrase keeps pulling me in. Similar verses always have the same effect … any hint that the angels long to have what we have hooks me every time. I read on, then find I’ve fixated back on the angel part. They fascinate me that way.
Angels are messengers.
They are given an assignment, and do it. Then, move on to the next.
Focused. Dutiful. Assigned.
Here’s the glorious unfolding: their mysterious abilities only go this far … perhaps they’d like to spend a day in the skin of a human – to feel what we feel. To hunger and to thirst – to serve, one human to another – and know, really KNOW the course of the emotions that erupt in the process.
Even The Son Of God Himself, desired us to know Him so, that He came in human form and experienced, first hand, every high and low He had given to mankind.
See, Beloved: you ARE the chosen one of the Almighty. You are His favorite. Your Creator adores you. He knows you, and He is your Savior.
Another thought just bounced in … yeah, I know I’m ramblin’ but stay with me a sec: I read an article claiming scientific research has proven humans use an average of only 10% of their brain capacity in their lifetime. Perhaps, that is because the Almighty intends for that 10% to cover our basic-Maslow’s-hierarchy-needs for survival on this planet, and other 90% stands ready to explode into us the deeper things of God. We have the capacity to do so.
Angels only wish they had the same option.
Plunge deeper into The Holy.
