11 – Heroes Rising
7 – The Spirit of God

Job 11:7 (NKJV) – “Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?”

What a question! Though the friends of Job weren’t exactly on the same page as God Almighty, this question is worth thinking about. Now don’t get me wrong, I know that I, as a human being bound by the space-time continuum and the laws of this physical realm, am nowhere near capable of comprehending the deep things of God. But I know who is, The Holy Spirit, who raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead and now dwells in us!

Declaration: I have the dunamis power of the Lord Jesus Christ taking up residence within me. I belong to the Father because His Spirit is the seal and down payment of my inheritance with Jesus. I am the temple of the Holy Spirit. I will not be conformed to this world, but transformed by renewing my mind by the power of the Holy Spirit who searches the deep things of God. In Jesus’ name, Amen!


With it being the seventh day of November, I wanted to touch on the number 7 and how it represents the Spirit of God, or the Holy Spirit. Let’s go through a couple of quick examples from Scripture.


When God Perfectly Purifies Something By His Spirit, You See The Number Seven

Leviticus 4:17 – And the priest shall dip his finger in some of the blood, and sprinkle it seven times before the LORD, even before the veil.


When God Perfectly Protects Us By His Spirit, You See The Number Seven

Deuteronomy 28:7 – The LORD will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.


When God Bring Us Perfect Justice By His Spirit, You See The Number Seven

1 Samuel 2:5 – They that were full have hired out themselves for bread; and they that were hungry ceased: So that the barren hath born seven; And she that hath many children is waxed feeble.


There are countless examples of the number seven throughout Scripture. The book of Revelation contains 54 mentions alone! It’s such a powerful pattern that God uses to represent when He’s doing a perfect work by the power of His Spirit. Now that we’re familiar with what God uses the number seven to represent, let’s take another look at the 7th verse of the 11th chapter of Job.


Job 11:7 (NKJV) – “Can you search out the deep things of God? Can you find out the limits of the Almighty?”


The simple answer to this amazing question is no. And that would be correct. However, we who house the Spirit of the Living God within us, have access to the deep things of God because of the Holy Spirit!


1 Corinthians 2:9-12 NKJV

But as it is written: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.
