Understanding is supernatural impartation of spiritual truths. Meditating on God’s word opens our understanding.
1 Corinthians 2:10 Amplified says, “Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit, for the (Holy) Spirit searches diligently, exploring and examining everything, even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God (the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man’s scrutiny).”
Revelational insight is beyond our natural ability. It is Spirit communicating to spirit. Our fleshly pride blocks true understanding. It is given to the humble who cry out for it, knowing it is beyond them. Proverbs 2:3 says to lift up our voice for understanding. Verse 6 says, “For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
