Grace for you today !
Jesus Your Defence and Excellence!
“My son, if you receive my words, And treasure my commands within you, So that you incline your ear to wisdom, And apply your heart to understanding; Yes, if you cry out for discernment, And lift up your voice for understanding, If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures; Then you will understand the fear of the Lord, And find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding;” Proverbs 2:1-6 NKJV
Observe these words from the above passage- receive, treasure , incline , apply, cry out, lift up your voice, seek & search.
If we have to summarise all these 8 words into one word, it means DESPERATE. That’s exactly how God wants us to be when it comes to gaining wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
Each one of these words calls us for an undivided attention , close attentiveness and full engrossment on WISDOM, which God calls as the most wanted, of highest priority & the chief of all blessings.
King Solomon was desperate for wisdom. No wonder he offered 1000 burnt offerings. It might have taken him the whole night. In comparison it seems ridiculous the way we get tired of confessing “I am the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus” – even 10 times in a row. Some of us may need to muster all our strength to just say once .
The reason is that we don’t see the dire need of the hour – Wisdom ! It’s the hearing heart that leads to discernment then decision , leading to execution.
Let’s feverishly confess and keep confessing this great and awesome truth – I am the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus, till we see through our tests into testimony, mediocrity into mastery & blunder into brilliance !
