He Knew In Himself

He Knew In Himself

John 6:61 KJV “When JESUS KNEW IN HIMSELF that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?”


There are certain things the Spirit of God makes us know just like we know our own name. Another word for this is discernment or understanding:

Colossians‬ ‭1:9-10‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of his will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.”

That’s the purpose of discernment; serving God, and knowing Him better. There are times God will give us a Spirit of discernment when we are in danger:

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭22:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.”

Matthew 12:14‭-‬15 NLT “Then the Pharisees called a meeting to plot how to kill Jesus. But JESUS KNEW what they were planning. So he left that area, and many people followed him. He healed all the sick among them.”

Sometimes God allows us to see danger ahead. Then it’s our choice to act on what we know. If we are wise we will take precautionary measures to avoid harm. But the simpleton will go on blindly as if he/she sees nothing and must suffer the consequences. Sometimes the consequences are staggering.😳 May we not be simple. May we act properly on the knowledge God gives us in ourselves and be safe from harm.😊
