JESUS KNEW THEIR THOUGHTS

Matthew 12:25-27 “Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. If Satan drives out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then can his kingdom stand? And if I drive out demons by Beelzebub, by whom do your people drive them out? So then, they will be your judges.”
No one can get inside the head of another man and know his thoughts, except Jesus.
Throughout the years a great many people came to me, seeking help. It was impossible to discern their thoughts and intentions. I prayed and trusted the Lord to give me wisdom, but sometimes as a human I misinterpreted God’s answers.
I learned the hard way that besides praying, it was best to ask the pastor, elders, or village leaders about a person. Local people knew other villagers better than I did.
The truth is that no one ever knew a stranger’s thoughts, except God.
