The apostle Paul writes of special insights for those intent on loving God.

1 Corinthians 2:9  ". . . No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him."  (NLT)

Remember "The Little Orphan Annie Decoder Ring" from "The Christmas Story" movie?  There was no way little Ralphie would ever decode the radio mystery message without the code breaker!  It's flat-out exhilarating to know things that not everyone else knows -- privileged information!

Is it really so hard to imagine God has special insights and greater intimacy for those Christ-followers who talk with Him regularly and read and meditate on His Word?  (Note:  this verse is not referring to heaven -- it's about Christ-followers here and now!)  Bottom line:  being part of God's family brings with it forgiveness of sin and peace with God like you've never experienced; God's best blessings are reserved for those who are in love with Him, hang out with Him, and listen intently for His still small voice.
