    HE OPENS YOUR UNDERSTANDING

    HE OPENS YOUR UNDERSTANDING
    Then opened he their understanding, 
    that they might understand the scriptures 
    (Luke 24:45).
    friday 27
    The Bible says in John 20:21-22, “Then said 
    Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my 
    Father hath sent me, even so send I you. And when 
    he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto 
    them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost.”  This was the same 
    account that Luke reported in our opening verse, but 
    he wasn’t an eyewitness when Jesus ministered to the 
    disciples. John was an eyewitness and he tells us in 
    actuality what happened.
    So, how exactly did Jesus open the understanding 
    of His disciples? We’re not told anything happened 
    to them outwardly when  “…he breathed on them, 
    and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost” 
    (John 20:22). So, how did Luke know that the 
    breathing on them by Jesus was what opened their 
    understanding? 
    Job 32:8 (ASV) says,  “But there is a spirit in 
    man, And the breath of the Almighty giveth them 
    understanding.” The King James translation of 
    the same verse says,  “But there is a spirit in man: 
    and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them 
    understanding.” The word translated, “inspiration” 
    means “breath”; the breath of the Almighty gives 
    understanding. 
    When Luke was told that Jesus breathed on the 
    disciples and they understood the Scriptures, he knew 
    exactly where the understanding came from. Jesus 
    Christ, on that occasion, demonstrated His divine 
    ability to impart understanding, just as He’s able to 
    impart knowledge. Remember, He’s the embodiment 
    of all wisdom and knowledge: “In whom are hid all 
    the treasures of wisdom and knowledge”  (Colossians 
    2:3).
    Perhaps, you require insight into certain mysteries 
    and secrets—secrets about your work, your academics or 
    anything in particular—you can trust Him. Hallelujah!
    CONFESSION
    I know what to do at all times, because I’m influenced 
    and controlled by the Holy Spirit and the Word of 
    God. I’m sensitive to the leading of the Spirit and apt 
    to put the Word to work. I have insight into mysteries 
    and secrets; I’m filled with the knowledge of God’s 
    will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Glory 
    to God!
