An Understanding Heart And Mind - May 19th 2024

Sunday, 19th May, 2024

By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome


“And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God…”  (Luke 8:10 KJV).              


If you’re a child of God, it’s your divinely given right and ability to understand the Scriptures. Never agree with those who claim God is a mysterious God; He’s not a mystery to His children. 

It’s one of Satan’s strategies to deceive God’s people and try to make them believe they couldn’t understand the Scriptures. Never agree with him. You have the understanding of the righteous. It is given to you to understand the Scriptures.

The Bible tells us that God has given us a sound mind. So, you say, “I’m sound; my mind is sound. I’m alert. I have good understanding.” Don’t accept the devil’s lies that God’s Word and His ways are mysterious. Accept that you have an understanding mind. 

The power is in accepting and declaring what God has said. So even if you’ve been having difficulties with your understanding of the Word, right now, say, “I have an understanding heart and mind,” and right away your understanding will open up.

Part of the ministry of the Holy Spirit in your life is to help you understand the Scriptures. In John 14:26, Jesus said, “But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.”

The Bible also tells us how He breathed on His disciples and said, “...Receive ye the Holy Ghost” (John 20:22), thus opening their minds to understand the Scriptures (Luke 24:45). That’s a miracle, and that same miracle happened to you when you received the Holy Spirit.


"Dear Father, thank you for granting me an understanding heart; I have insight into the mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom, and the boundless treasures of wisdom that are in your Word are unveiled to my spirit even now as I study your Word. The eyes of my understanding are flooded with light to know and walk in your perfect will, in Jesus’ Name. Amen."


Hebrews 11:1-3; Acts 2:17; 2 Corinthians 4:18


John 8:31-47; 1 Kings 22


1 Corinthians 10:14-21; Proverbs 14
