Open our eyes to the sin of our land, the shed blood of the innocent, our immoral ways,  our violence and how we have all gone according to our own ways, and not Your ways. Turn our hearts back to you.

Forgive us for shaming you and so quickly fallen away, for we have not taught our children day and night as you commanded us, our words are full of filth, our ways are perverse before you, lusts of life have taken over, we are entertained by filth and violence and there is little or no love in our hearts to other people.  Change us O God, for lives are blessed and peaceful when we follow you.

Stop the influence of witchcraft and violence on our youth, raise up new talent that creates new shows  and movies that entertain with godliness and humor that is not offensive to you.

Raise up news stations and journalists that deliver truth and aren’t swayed by money, fear and power.

Let us consider our ways  and how we have grieved your Holy Spirit.

Restore us O God and guide us, According to your word.  Protect this nation and bring peace upon all the people.  May you reign once again over this great Nation you have given us, for Nothing is impossible with you – nothing is impossible with you.

Let all the world know that Jesus is the only way to salvation,  keep us far from pride and haughtiness but remember always to treat each other with love, blessing those who curse us and loving those who hate us.

God give us strength and bring us back to you. What was divided, make us one again. Thank you for this new hope, I am confident in you, O Lord.

Bless our Nations O God, Restore us back to you

In Jesus name, I cry out to you to hear me and answer our prayers.

Amen

 

 

Don’t fret over what you see and hear – have faith. If you are bothered or upset, pray to God  and he will surely answer you.

My enemies, My enemies, O Lord Rescue me. Prayer of Psalm 119

Notice how the Psalmist keeps his focus on the Lord and His Word even though he is in great anguish and tribulation. He tells God what is going on yet  his focus goes back to Gods words and His promises each moment. In the last post I wrote, the writer of Ps119 claims all God’s promises as he prays ending each promise with “according to your Word”.  Need God’s Word? try psalms 23 and 34 to start: He protects you, he gives you rest, he frees you from all your fears and He always delivers you.

 

Heavenly Father, Creator of Heaven and Earth,

My enemies have me in derision,  they do not follow your law. I tremble at their pride before you, for your laws have been my song.  The hands of wicked have robbed me and surrounded me but I will still follow your ways. Mine enemies accuse me night and day, they forge a lie against me but I will continue to keep your precepts with all my heart.

   My enemy’s heart is as fat as grease, full of their own ways. Your ways O Lord are better to me than thousands of gold and silver. Let mine enemies who are full of pride be put to shame,  for they deal wickedly against me without cause, but my heart remains in your statues.

Comfort me O Lord and Delivery me according to your Word,  fight those who persecute me. For the proud and wicked have dug a pit for me and they do not follow your law. They tried to destroy me but you helped me according to your word. For your word is settled in heaven.

The wicked lied in wait for me to destroy me but I look at your testimonies.  Thou I am afflicted, you will restore and deliver me. Bend down to hear my praise.  Look down and see how the wicked have laid a snare for me, yet I continue on your righteous path. You rebuke the proud and they are cursed, they err from your commands.

 Depart from me you evil doers, for the Lord upholds me.  He shall keep me safe and I will meditate on His word continually.  You crush the wicked who err from your ways, all their ways are false and they know it.  You put away the wicked, I praise you, all the wicked of the earth are like dross.  My flesh trembles in fear of thee. I have done justice, deliver me from my oppressors, all those who forget your words.

 I am despised, trouble and anguish take hold of me, yet i do not forget your precepts. Hear me O God , in your Loving Kindness, as I cry out to you.  My enemies are full of schemes and mischief, how well I know it. But you are near to me O God. consider my affliction and deliver me, Plead my case for me for my enemies seek my destruction.  Salvation is far from the wicked for they do not seek your statues.

Many are my persecutors and my enemies, yet I will stand firm in your word for I trust in you. I am unshakable before my enemies because I trust in you. When I saw my enemies despise your word, I was grieved, consider how I love your laws and restore me according to your promises.

Even the princes have come to persecute me, but my heart meditates on your word.  I will praise you seven times a day. Let my cry come before you and give me understanding and deliver me. Let your hand help and lift me up.

Let my soul live and it shall praise thee, and let they judgments help me. For I was lost, yet You rode the heavens to help me. I will never forget your commands.

I pray all this in the name of my redeemer, Christ Jesus – for His word is more powerful than any doubled edged sword

 

 2 Cor 10:3-5 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore! Eph 6:11-14

According to Your Word, O God – Prayer of Psalm 119

For ever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119:89

 

Revive me O God,  According to your Word
Strengthen me O God, According to your Word
Establish your Word in Me O Lord, According to your Word
Turn my eyes away from vanity and quicken me According to your Word
Heal me from sickness According to your Word
Deal with me According to your Word
Let your Merciful Kindness be my comfort According to your Word
Your precepts quicken me According to your Word
Deliver me from discouragement According to your Word
Deliver me from all my fears According to your Word
Deliver me from death According to your Word
Restore my life According to your Word
Uphold me According to Your Word
I cry and Hope According to your Word
Hear my voice According to your Word
Quicken me O Lord According to Your Word
Deliver me O God According to Your Word
Give me understanding According to Your Word
Hear me O God and deliver me According to your Precious Word

In Jesus Name, Amen

 

“According to your Word” occurs 23x in Psalm 119. The Hebrew word “Debar”  means Word, and other times it is translated as ; According to your truth, your ways, the glory of your name, your works,ways, manner , commands, sayings, acts,  promise, your laws.

We also know that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us- that is Christ Jesus. Today we know the Word is Christ Jesus, we also know all God’s promises are Yes and Amen In Him. (2 Cor 1:20). All the Promises above are in Christ Jesus, a sure foundation and anchor for your soul.

The word “quicken me” is used 16 times in Psalm 119- “quicken me according to your word”

Quicken in Hebrew means : to live, have life, remain alive, sustain life, live prosperously, live for ever, be healed, be quickened, be alive, restore to life, to cause to grew, revive, to have life, from death, restored from discouragement, restore from faintness, to preserve, be restored to life or health.

Post Concussion Syndrome Week 4 recovery PCS (day 33)

I know these aren’t in line with my usual posts, but if someone is googling for help with PCS, I hope they can find some kind of hope here and know they are NOT alone. The video below is the only site I could find relating to what I am dealing with after weeks of searching.

I mentioned last week how I was coping and listed a few things that helped me including verses. If anyone is suffering form PCS or you know anyone who is, below is an excellent video that describes what we are going through. If anyone asks how I am, I either reply with a good, okay, alright or hurting. I don’t go into detail because I don’t want to think about it, but Laura, in the video below, describes everything I am experiencing as I trek though this.

Like shes says, we don’t have a cast on our head and we look normal, but we are dealing with many concussion symptoms no one can see – not even MRI’s or CT scans.

Am I any better than last week? Well, it’s like asking if I saw any growth in the tree in my backyard. I’m sure it grew, but I just can’t see it. Please know that hope is ahead and don’t ever ever give up. Use scripture to pull you out of the pit of depression and anxiety, ask for prayer – or leave a comment and I will be praying for you. The bible says to rejoice in our trials, find something to give thanks about and listen to uplifting songs of hope. I am thankful God stopped everything in my life and had me slow down. I now have more time with the Lord and more time for prayer.

 

In the first week or two after hitting my head, I felt like I was being sealed up in a coffin and no one could see  I was alive. Inside I was myself and my thoughts were normal but I couldn’t express anything. It made me wonder about the many people and children I see in wheelchairs that can’t talk or express themselves. I wonder if inside they want so badly to talk and express themselves but they are shut in and no one understands.

We are still the same, our processor is just a little slow

How much longer do I have? I don’t know and I don’t care right now. I don’t want to think about it. I can’t walk 7 miles or go to dance class everyday like I used to, but I’ll find new things to do. Take the challenge! Be strong! Walk by faith, even when we can’t see it. Remember Hebrews 11 says : Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. You may not see or feel it, but have Faith that God will heal you and don’t let your faith get tossed around like the waves of the sea. Get scripture out and say it all day if you have to, keep your Faith alive and refuse to entertain thoughts of hopelessness and fear. It’s not easy. It’s a war and you need to fight it.

 

2 Cor 12:9 MY GRACE is sufficient for you for my POWER is
made perfect in WEAKNESS.

God knows

God cares

God sees

God hears 

Cry out to Him

Fear not, for I am with you;
be not dismayed, for I am your God;
I will strengthen you, I will help you,
 I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Isaiah 41:10

Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;

Wait, I say, on the Lord ! Psalm 27:14

The Lord says,  “In returning and rest you shall be saved;
In quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”Isaiah 30:15

Concussion Recovery week 3. day 27

 

ughhhhh 27 days! Can you believe this. I wished I was still sleeping when I woke up today because when I’m sleeping there is no pain, just an occasional weird dream. Not every morning is like today, every day is different.

I don’t have an exciting story about my concussion, I woke up with a bruised head and later I bumped my head at the gym during a vacation in fort Myers at Pink Shell. Two hours later it hit me. Not an exciting story, I wasn’t doing triples on skates, kayaking through rough waters, jumping out of an airplane or exploring caves in Turkey – no, just an ordinary knock me out concussion without notice! I’m in bed most of the day. I’m not supposed to read, watch tv or do anything with thinking but here I am blogging and I’m reading the bible, a little dizzy now, but I hope to make it through.

I had NO idea recovery would be this long. I’ve been wanting to blog but my mind won’t let me. It’s difficult to drive, it takes all my concentration. If I see a bird or an iguana or anything that gets my attention, I forget I’m driving “Oh look! that hawk is huge and has a fish in his claws..or is it a baby duck, what is it hmmm I wonder what lake he got that fish from  ” or “wow, look at all those vultures circling the marked off area of swamp, I bet there’s a body in there, should I call the authorities, why aren’t the vultures eating yet” . So on my last 2 short driving excursions, those were a couple of my distracting thoughts before I remember again that I’m driving. I stay off the road mainly, just once or twice took a short drive, but need more time.  If someone in front of you is slow, please be patient! it may be me, and I always honk back. That’s just who I am.

I can handle an occasional conversation but if I’m around more than 3 people, I get really confused and it’s difficult.

Staring has become my new hobby and scrubbing grout or a stain on anything for a long time, is a new skill i can do. I now notice things I never did before, like how I need to clean my blinds and my kitchen cupboards. One thing at a time. It’s almost like I’m on Ritalin. but hey, is anyone listening?

One of my first days back at attempting to read, I read this:

Daniel 11:35 And some of those of understanding shall fall, to refine them, purify them, and make them white, until the time of the end; because it is still for the appointed time.

  Wait a minute, I just fell and is this verse telling me something  or am I thinking to much?

So let me share some things I’ve learned, Ive thought or helped me though:

  1. Always be prepared – Thank God I had 6 months of homeschool planned with papers printed and organized in a binder per week. I am sure God nudged me to do that for this purpose.
  2. Live a life to please the Lord and not people. I can’t make everyone happy and I am A OK with that.
  3. I think depression is an evil spirit that tries to take over, you need to fight back. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. If you don’t agree, that’s cool, I have no energy to fight. I think the same of anxiety as well. I cant see into the spirit world, but that’s what I’m thinking. Don’t be mad
  4. Is it just me, or are doctor’s over medicating everyone
  5. Please be quiet
  6. Always remain hopeful! So many times I was losing hope, hate that feeling! Healing is taking so long and I’m used to drive through wendy’s rapido about everything in life. So this sloooooowneess is a new thing to me. I remembered the 10 spies who went to spy out the land and 8 had NO hope, only 2 believed God even though it looked impossible. I have to remember this – even though my days may look hopeless- I don’t believe what I feel or see – I have to have hope, I have to believe that better days and healing are ahead. It would greatly displease God to see that I didn’t hope in His healing and hope and know that He is always with me.
  1. Fix my thoughts. I had to recite this daily and answer each question.
  • what is true? God cares and watches over me, I rest in His shadow
  • What is Noble? A heart that Loves the Lord
  • What is right? That I don’t give up, that I hang on to the Lord – wait on the Lord, yes wait on the Lord
  • What is pure? The heart of the Father who created me and His Son who died for my awful sins.
  • What is lovely? Your eyes are like doves, thank you Jesus!
  • What is admirable? to be light and an example of Christ in this world
  • What is excellent? God’s goodness!
  • What is praiseworthy? My heart is full of thanks for all the blessings of God, they cannot be counted. So so so so thankful for laughter and humor. So many things have made me laugh even when I couldn’t talk in the hospital.
  1. Change your thoughts to thankfulness, certainly theres something you can be thankful for. Hey! I can read!
  2. Ask God for joy, that He would pour out the oil of gladness on you. sing it: If you want joy, you must ask for it, if you waaant joooy you must ask for it…the joy of the Lord is your strength!
  3. I hope I never have another bear dream again
  4. God knew this was going to happen, God is in control. He cares! yes He does. Trust in Him
  5. Ask for peace, amen. Pray for healing and never give up.
  6. I watched John Hagee and He said God never takes something from you unless He’s going to give you something far better than what you have. Give up whatever keeps you in bondage. Take the challenge to be better than what you can be. Maybe God dropped a catfish in my life to increase vigor – had to watch show to get that
  7. I’m getting dizzy but I don’t want to stop
  8. I found peace and rest in the shelter of the Most High, yes I did.
  9. He calls you back to Him
  10. His mercy is New every day! I say this every morning to myself. I didn’t get it at first but now I do.
  11. His power is perfected in weakness, I’m still trying to wrap my head around that one. Read Paul’s many attacks and you’ll feel better.
  12. Read Job, He lost everything, even his dignity before all he knew. Hang on to God’s hope and don’t ever give up.
  13. Stop worrying, you need to fix your thoughts for that one.
  14. Bring all your thoughts captive to the Lord! He’s had to take a lot of luggage full of thoughts from me lately.
  15. Let the Word of God change your mind, to be a new person in Christ
  16. Glory in your infirmaties  – Lord knows I’m still working on that – that the power of Christ may rest upon me, I’m not sure I wrote that one right
  17. The stuff I’m writing is in the bible, but I don’t have the wherewithal to give you the scriptures
  18. Should I celebrate Rosh Hashana ?
  19. So so so thankful for friends and family for helping me! Also, for sending me encouraging verses – and dinner! thanks M!
  20. “Nevertheless, He regarded their affliction, when He heard them cry” Ps 106:44
  21. The Lord says ” I will dwell in them and walk among them. I will be their God and they shall be my people” 2 Cor 6″16
  22. “They cried out to the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them out of their distresses. Ps107;6
  23. Repent! I’ve been a jerk
  24. Sorrow and mourning is good, it refines us, ask King Solomon, he’ll tell you
  25. “He brought me out of the darkness and the shadow of death and broke their chains in pieces. Ps 107 somewhere
  26. Is 26:3-4 The Lord will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him. Trust in the Lord forever
  27. Calm down! psalm 131
  28. Charles Stanley said ” You cannot wander to far, fail too many times or exceed Christ’s love. When you repent and turn to Him, He restores you to fellowship as though nothing had ever happened.

 

Okay, Im too dizzy and slightly nauseous to finish but I have lots more to share and say but it takes to much effort so for now, I must rest! That needs editing, excuse me, I must go stare at my closet door for a few hours. I hope you enjoy my journey blog.

Pray always. The Our father and Ps 23 have been my guide and the meditation of my heart through it all.

Peace people and Behave!

Prayer of Ephesians 2

Dear Father in Heaven, Creator of Heaven and Earth,

Thank you for your love for me and your great mercy. I was once dead in my sins when I formally walked in the way of the world according to the prince of the power of the air and the spirit who worked in my disobedience,  I went against YOU O Lord by following my own wants, my own lusts, my own desires, whatever my mind sought, but You O Lord, reached out your hand and called me to You – even when I was dead in my transgressions.  You made me Alive together with Christ and raised me up with Him, You have seated me in the heavenly places with Christ Jesus – this is too amazing to understand.

Oh Lord, I am silenced at your amazing Power and Holiness, what an honor and blessing to be before your heavenly throne to talk to you, to praise you and to be in Your presence. Thank you for your mercy and love for me. Thank you for showing me the riches of your grace and  kindness in Christ Jesus.

I know it is only by your grace, mercy and love that I can say that I know you and you have redeemed my life, you have saved me in my faith, and this faith was your gift to me – and it wasn’t because I was something special or any special work or steps I took, but it was only because of your gracious gift.

I am Your workmanship, I praise you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous–how well I know it. Speak to my heart and lead me in doing the good works  that I was created to do in Christ Jesus- all my steps that God prepared for my life , Lord let my feet stay on your planned path.

For once I was unclean and common, but now I am an heir in Christ, part of the family of the Lord God. I praise you O Lord for considering me. I remember that I was once separated from Christ and not included as a part of the family of Israel, I was a stranger to your covenant and I had no hope for  I was without God in this world.

But today I can lift my hands and Praise the Lord, for though I was far off, I have been brought near  by the blood of Christ.  O Lord, I praise you, for He Himself is my peace- He has made me one as part of His Holy family, breaking down the barrier wall that divided us.

By your Holy Spirit I have access to you O God, I am in awe at your love for me. Thank you for making me part of Your household, thank you for making me a fellow citizen with the saints. Lord, teach me and lead me to live a life that is pleasing to you.  Keep me from anything that would grieve you.

May my life be a stone in the temple of God in Christ as we are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit.

I will meditate on all Your gifts and benefits all day, I stand amazed at your love and care for me. Thank you O God , for making me part of your Holy Family in Christ Jesus.  Let my life sing your praises and be a testimony of Christ, for He is way, the truth and the life and no man can go to you O God but by your chosen son Jesus, may all the world know this truth.

In Christ, I pray, Amen

Am I saved / can I receive the Holy Spirit after I believe and I’v been baptized?  Act 8 : Simon the Sorceror

 

The bible tells us that we must believe on the Lord Jesus and we will be saved, we are also taught that Baptism is part of the process of salvation. However! Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8 fulfilled these 2 outward acts, but since his heart was not right, he had no part in the Holy Spirit.  He was still full of bitterness, wickedness and iniquity. He never stopped his sorcery and evil ways; according to scripture, he had no part in God’s kingdom even though outwardly he made the steps, because inwardly there was no change.

Let’s look at the story of Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8:9-29.

Simon  was well know in Samaria for his astonishing acts of sorcery, witchcraft and great supernatural power. He claimed he was great, that his power and magical art was from God. Now at this time, Philip was preaching God’s Word and the testimony of Jesus to the people of Samaria , he did great signs and wonders – healing the sick, healing the paralyzed, casting out demons- and because of this, there was great joy in Samaria and many believed in Jesus.

Sorcery, witchcraft, omens, calling on spirits and the dead is strictly forbidden by God. If Simon had this power, it was satanic and any power or sign of this kind is not of God.

Simon the sorcerer heard the words of Philip as he testified of the Lord Jesus Christ and SIMON BELIEVED , SIMON was  BAPTISED  and Simon continued to listen and follow Philip as a believer. He watched Philip  and was amazed at the miracles and signs he saw Philip do in the name of Jesus.

So the scripture goes on to tell us that after the people believed and were baptized,  that Peter and John came to Samaria to lay hands on the believers that they would receive the Holy Spirit.  When Simon saw this power come on people, he offered the apostles money for this power.

Here’s were wisdom is needed – Simon was scolded and reprimanded- He is told (even though he was a believer and was baptized) that he

  1. – has no portion in the matter of the Holy Spirit
  2. – His heart was still wicked
  3. -His heart was not right before the Lord
  4. -He was poisoned by bitterness and
  5. – bound by iniquities – his sinful ways

 

What is the message here? Your heart MUST be right with the Lord or your salvation prayer and public church baptism is meaningless and in vain. Same with the sacraments – they don’t give you the ticket to heaven that the church wishes it did – of course the sacraments were put in place with good meaning – but unless we have a right heart, a changed heart – it’s all worthless and in vain.  We need to change -our heart- our ways and our walk. We need to be righteous, holy, and forgive everyone who offends us. We need to live a life far away from sin that entangles you and weighs you down – bitterness, unforgiveness, witchcraft, sorcery, cursing, drunkenness, sexual sins, fulfilling your own lusts and all that goes against God. We must walk in love and humbleness, thinking of others more than ourselves and our own agendas. Consider the verse in James 1:26 Those who consider themselves religious and yet do not keep a tight rein on their tongues deceive themselves, and their religion is worthless. The true path requires daily effort to work out your salvation and stay away from sin that can trip you and lead you along the wrong path. Jesus said the true path is narrow and FEW make it, the path to destruction is wide and broad and MANY enter it.

Peter goes on to instruct Simon-

  1.   Repent of your wickedness
  2.   Pray to God that He would forgive you

 

You can’t keep living the same life you did , you need to change.

The Scripture says that Simon could not receive the Power of the Holy Spirit and we know that the Holy Spirit seals us for the day of Salvation. We know he was full of sin -unrepented and unforgiven sin, so with that in mind, was his soul saved? If he wasn’t forgiven, there is NO WAY he could go before the Lord.

Galations 5 tells us that anyone involved in the following sins have NO PART IN THE KINGDOM OF GOD: The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions  and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Based on that scripture, Simon’s salvation still had not been worked out. Are you a Christian involved in any of the above sins?

Jesus came to teach the repentance of sins and salvation, yet even though Simon took the outward steps, he had not yet taken the inward steps of stopping his life of sin, repenting from it and asking God for forgiveness.

Did you once walk with the Lord, but have turned you back on Him?

 It is impossible for those who have once been enlightened, who have tasted the heavenly gift, who have shared in the Holy Spirit,  who have tasted the goodness of the word of God and the powers of the coming age  and who have fallen away, to be brought back to repentance. To their loss they are crucifying the Son of God all over again and subjecting him to public disgrace Land that drinks in the rain often falling on it and that produces a crop useful to those for whom it is farmed receives the blessing of God.  But land that produces thorns and thistles is worthless and is in danger of being cursed. In the end it will be burned. Even though we speak like this, dear friends, we are convinced of better things in your case—the things that have to do with salvation. God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized.  We do not want you to become lazy, but to imitate those who through faith and patience inherit what has been promised. Heb 6:4-10

  • Ephesians 4:30 And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
  • 1 Thessalonians 1:5 because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.
  • 1 Thessalonians 4:8  Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit.
  • Titus 3:5 he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,

 

We need to stop making our own rules, our own ways and stop making excuses for the evil we are involved in.  Run from sin, repent of your wickedness, ask God for forgiveness and work our your salvation with fear and trembling! Stand unashamed in your walk with the Lord even though everyone is against you – God is with you….forever…….

Seeking Wisdom? Do you want to be filled with Wisdom? Amazing Promises and gifts are stored up for you. The secret to finding Wisdom…

Seeking Wisdom – Do you want wisdom?  A wisdom that is far beyond the wisdom of human reasoning……

  The first time we see wisdom/ being wise is in Genesis 3:6. It was Eve, she “desired to be wise” and “wanted the wisdom”  that the serpent claimed she would receive from eating the fruit. She craved the wisdom she would receive if she disobeyed God. Do you notice how we are so easily deceived? All the devil needs to do is mix a little truth into anything and so many believe the lies he spews into our ears.  We need Godly wisdom so we don’t fall into the devils trap. In James 1:5, we are told to ASK for wisdom from our generous God and He will surely give it to you – without rebuke.  We can also grow in wisdom as King Solomon did. You will grow in wisdom if you obey Him. Learning, seeking wisdom and growing in understanding never stops – pursue it forever.  Wisdom also fills our lives with promises from God.

Do you want this wisdom? Remember it starts with the Fear of the Lord, you cannot attain these promises without this foundation. For more information on the Fear of the Lord, see my last post: https://prepareforthelamb.wordpress.com/2016/03/21/what-is-the-fear-of-the-lord-listen-and-i-will-teach-you-the-fear-of-the-lord-it-is-the-beginning-of-wisdom-and-understanding/. What’s the next step? ASK for Wisdom. Pray and cry out to God for this wisdom. Want to grow in wisdom? Obey obey obey – that the key to growing in wisdom. Watch out that pride doesn’t slip in, acknowledge daily that the gifts God gives you are not of your own doing. Embrace, love, seek and prize wisdom. Keep your eyes glued on wisdom, let it fill your heart.  Continue to walk along His path always growing in understanding and knowledge of His word.

Here are just a few of the Promises that come with God’s wisdom : long life, safety, protection, understanding, saves you from evil people, gives you favor, direction, discretion, wisdom to go in the right direction, keeps you from temptation, brings honor, bright futures and fulfilled hope for what lies ahead. Wisdom will make you great! Wisdom will honor you! Wisdom will guard you! Wisdom will lead you along the right paths! (with all  humility and humbleness, because if you let pride slip in, it ruins everything)

Not only do we have these great promises with God’s wisdom, but more specifically, the Lord gives each of us wisdom with specific skills and amazing abilities. He gives us ideas, insight and direction. Look at some of the gifts of wisdom the Lord gave His people:

Examples Wisdom given from God in the bible:

  • Skilled craftmen – making garments for the priests – this was gift of wisdom from God Exodus 28:3
  • Ability and expertise in all kinds of crafts – Exodus 31:3, 35:31,
  • Ability of the engraver, the workman, the weaver Ex 35:35
  • Ability to perform any task involved in building, constructing and furnishing Ex 36:1
  • Ability and desire to work are gifts of wisdom from God
  • Ability to create and decorate – brass 1 Kings 7
  • Filled with understanding and wisdom to be leaders Dt 1:13
  • Wisdom to plant and harvest, He gives the farmer wisdom Is 28:29: to know how to level the surface, sow the seed, plant in rows, how to grind/crush  the flour- all this is from the Lord
  • To rule and govern countries – Joseph Acts 7:10, Solomon
  • To save nations, countries and families

……off subject, but when I look at the gifts/wisdom/abilities God gave above, I can’t help but think that today’s education has completely eliminated/crushed these abilities/crafts in our culture.

Examples of wise men in the bible:

  • Joseph– God gave him favor before Pharaoh and unusual wisdom to govern over all Egypt Acts 7:10
  • Joshua filled with spirit of wisdom Dt 34:9. He was chosen and given the responsibility to lead after Moses’ death, to bring the people into the Promised land
  • Solomon: first person in bible to ASK for wisdom instead of riches and fame 1 Kings 3, He asked for wisdom in governing people with justice and he kept growing in wisdom, understanding and knowledge
  • Zechariah– a man of great wisdom, unusual wisdom. He was the East Gatekeeper 1 Chronicles 26:14
  • Ezra given wisdom from God to appoint judges , King Artaxerxes noticed Ezra’s wisdom was from the Lord Ezra 7:25. Ezra was a scribe who spent much of his time studying God’s word, In fact, scripture tells us that God’s hand of graciousness was on Ezra because he was determined to study and obey God’s laws as well as teach those decrees and regulations to the people of Israel
  • Hiram of Tyre of tribe of Naphtali, a son of a widow- God filled him with wisdom to create many items of Bronze for King Solomon 1 King 7:12, he created pillars of brass, chapiters on the pillars decorated with pomegranates and lilies, he made the molten sea for the temple and the oxen holding it up. His work was decorated with lions, oxen, cherubim, lilies and pomegranates . He created many more items of brass for King Solomon
  • 4 men in Daniel – God gave them an unusual aptitude for understanding every aspect of literature and wisdom Daniel 1:17
  • Daniel was 10 times more capable than any magician and enchanter in the kingdom. God have him wisdom, strength and favor Daniel 1-5. He was found to have insight, understanding and wisdom .
  • Jesus!!! He was filled with all wisdom, He grew in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and all the people
  • Stephen was full of wisdom and no one could stand against the wisdom and the Spirit with which He spoke. Acts 6:10
    ……..and many, many more……………………………….

Wise Women in the bible:

  • A woman from Tekoa 2 Samuel 14:2- a woman with a great reputation for wisdom who went before the king 2 Sam 14
  • Ex 35:26 women whose hearts stirred up in them wisdom spun goats hair
  • a wise woman from bel-beth-maacah saved her city when she threw the head of Sheba over the wall to King David’s commander Joab.
  • Deborah – a judge of Israel
  • Jael – wisdom, strength and courage to deceive and destroy Israel’s enemy, the commander of Canaan’s army named Sisera. “theLord’s victory over Sisera will be at the hands of a woman”
  • Esther– beautiful queen of Persia who, through the wisdom and favor from the Lord, saved the Jewish Nation
  • Abigail – saved her household from a great slaughter
  • The 5 bridesmaids who kept oil in their lamp
  • The Proverbs 31 woman
  • Lydia – the Lord opened her heart to hear and understand the words of Paul, saving her and all her household Acts 16
  • Rahab saved herself and family , some of the women had shrewd tactics like Lot’s daughters, Tamar (Gen 38) who pretended to be a prostitute to sleep with her father in law, Isaacs wife who told Jacob to deceive his father for the inheritance and blessing, Leah who secretly took her sisters place in the wedding bed, and the woman from Tekoa who went before King David, but hey! men were shrewd too- consider Jacob and then Laban, he was a real swindler
    …..and many more….I like the Shumanitte woman but I don’t know if she was wise or super persistenthttps://prepareforthelamb.wordpress.com/2013/06/12/it-is-well-it-is-well-said-the-shunamite-woman-2-kings-48-37/

There are many more examples of men and women in the bible filled with God’s wisdom. They saved nations, they saved their families and were able to continue in God’s strength to carry out all that God had planned for their lives. (Wisdom is mentioned 23x in the book of Job. 47x in  Proverbs. 26x in Ecclesiastics)

More facts on Wisdom from the wisest man who ever lived : King Solomon:

Fear of the Lord is the foundation and first step before Wisdom. Wisdom is given to us from the Lord. Once we have wisdom, wisdom will lead you to understanding with knowledge. Following that, God will give you discernment, good judgment and disciple. (knowledge of the Holy One results in good judgment, knowledge comes to those with understanding) God’s wisdom founded the earth and preserves it, His understanding created and stretched out the heavens – can we understand or fathom how great this is!?!

Turn your ears to wisdom, ask, pray and cry out for it, for the Lord grants wisdom! It will save you from evil and twisted people, it will save you from temptation. Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom, but shun evil and Fear the Lord. There is much joy to the one who finds wisdom, it is greater than silver and pays more than gold. It is more precious than a ruby, in fact nothing can compare with it.

Wisdom is like a tree of life to all those who seek and hold tightly to her. In fact, seeking and getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! If you prize wisdom, she will make you great! Embrace wisdom and she will honor you, love wisdom and she will guard you. God’s wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life, if you find it, you will have a bright future and your hopes will not be kept short – that is an great promise!!!! Wisdom will keep you safe – Gods wisdom, but those who trust in their own insight are foolish.

Wisdom will lead you along the straight paths. Keep your eyes glued on wisdom from above, don’t be foolish seeking human wisdom. Getting wisdom will benefit you- seek her with all your might. Wisdom is enshrined in an understanding heart. In all this, watch that pride doesn’t slip in. It’s like a silent serpent, like a virus that silently tries to trap you. Check your heart for humility as you seek and grow and wisdom, for pride comes before the fall and humility comes before honor. Seek wisdom from God, not mans wisdom – for no human wisdom can stand against the Lord.

Verses to ponder and think about………………..

  • James 3:15 For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.
  • James 3:17But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.
  • Revelation 13:18Wisdom is needed here. Let the one with understanding solve the meaning of the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. His number is 666.
  • The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.’” Job 28:28
  • Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Psalm 111:10

  My thoughts : If I’m jealous and selfish, I’m not living according to God’s ways nor am I walking in the Fear of the Lord. If I am jealous or selfish, I am actually acting in an earthly demonic way – that is terrifying! God’s wisdom is peace loving and gentle – ooohhhh dear – and willing to yield to others. I’m beginning to understand that I am not fully where I want to be yet. I need to work on being gentle, but seriously…. I don’t know if its in me. Was the Shummanite woman gentle? Was Deborah gentle? If I obey the Lord’s commands I will grow in wisdom , aha! that’s the key to growing in wisdom – obedience….and that takes self discipline.

  • Psalm 51:6 But you desire honesty from the womb, teaching me wisdom even there.
  • Psalm 90:12Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.
  • Psalm 104:24 O Lord, what a variety of things you have made! In wisdom you have made them all. The earth is full of your creatures.

My thoughts: How does God teach me wisdom in the womb. That is so amazing! He must fill us with wisdom (errr some of us) or perhaps that verse was speaking of Jesus, hmm no I don’t think so, I just read the chapter. Really amazing that not only do we receive wisdom, but we can grow in wisdom. That gives me hope. God made us in His image. He is the Creator and He wants to give us creative gifts.

  • Proverbs 18:4 Wise words are like deep waters; wisdom flows from the wise like a bubbling brook.
  • Proverbs 19:8 To acquire wisdom is to love yourself; people who cherish understanding will prosper.
  • Proverbs 24:3 A house is built by wisdom and becomes strong through good sense.
  • Proverbs 29:15 To discipline a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.
  • Proverbs 9:1 Wisdom has built her house; she has carved its seven columns.
  • Isaiah 11:2And the Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord.Out of the stump of David’s family will grow a shoot—
      

My thoughts: That’s interesting – wise words are like deep waters..like a bubbling brook. When I hear those words I can’t help think of the heart mentioned in Proverbs- beware of what goes in your heart, for out of it flow the issues of life and also Jesus spoke of living water in our hearts. This wisdom goes in our hearts and earlier we read that it its enshrined in understanding. Once this wisdom goes in our heart, it overflows into every area of our life. it also reminds me of the verse in Jeremiah 17:7-8 ‘Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, he shall be like a tree by the rivers” The roots of the tree go deep into the waters and soil and nothing can knock this tree down, nor stop it from producing fruit.  To cherish wisdom is to love our own soul. very cool.I need my house to be strong and built right by the Lord, only His wisdom can help me. Discipline produces wisdom, but ugh I feel so tired, when will I see the fruit of discipline? Sometimes I want to give up. God give me wisdom. Okay last verse – I cant help but think of the candles in the tempe – the 7 candles and with that thought, I link it to Isiah 11:2 and the 7 spirits, perhaps they are the 7 pillars or symbolic? I believe their is an order or growth in this way also: Fear of the Lord, Spirit of Knowledge, Spirit of Counsel, Spirit of Might, Spirit of Wisdom, Spirit of Understanding and the Spirit of the Lord.

  • Ecclesiastes 2:26God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him. This, too, is meaningless—like chasing the wind.
  • Ecclesiastes 7:11Wisdom is even better when you have money. Both are a benefit as you go through life.
  • Ecclesiastes 7:12 Wisdom and money can get you almost anything, but only wisdom can save your life.
  • Ecclesiastes 7:23I have always tried my best to let wisdom guide my thoughts and actions. I said to myself, “I am determined to be wise.” But it didn’t work.
  • Ecclesiastes 7:24 Wisdom is always distant and difficult to find.
  • Ecclesiastes 7:25 I searched everywhere, determined to find wisdom and to understand the reason for things. I was determined to prove to myself that wickedness is stupid and that foolishness is madness.
  • Ecclesiastes 8:1 How wonderful to be wise, to analyze and interpret things.Wisdom lights up a person’s face, softening its harshness.
  • Ecclesiastes 9:10 Whatever you do, do well. For when you go to the grave, there will be no work or planning or knowledge or wisdom.
  • Ecclesiastes 9:16 So even though wisdom is better than strength, those who are wise will be despised if they are poor. What they say will not be appreciated for long.
  • Ecclesiastes 9:18 Better to have wisdom than weapons of war, but one sinner can destroy much that is good.
  • Ecclesiastes 10:1As dead flies cause even a bottle of perfume to stink, so a little foolishness spoils great wisdom and honor.
  • Ecclesiastes 10:10 Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.

So what have we learned? First we must have mastered the Fear of the Lord. Then we must ask for Wisdom. Wisdom only comes from the Lord and we are told to ask and He will give it to us. Ask, pray, cry out for wisdom. Knock, Seek and Ask. We can also grow in this wisdom through obedience. God’s wisdom is filled with gifts and promises for us. It helps us, strengthens us,empowers us to teach others, comfort the weary and lead God’s people. When our leaders today – God’s shepherds stop seeking wisdom,they fail and the flocks scatter. It is so important to seek wisdom. Don’t let finances, advertising and busyness knock you off the path. If you’ve already fallen, time to make a change and get back on track. Gatekeepers, you must continue growing in wisdom and keeping God’s flock from stumbling. Remember not to put your trust in human wisdom and strength. If we boast in anything – it is that we know God. God’s wisdom is pure, it is the knowledge that the message of the cross has the power of God for Salvation. Christ is the wisdom of God and God made him to be wisdom itself.  No man can know God through human wisdom, it is only for those who believe.. 1 Cor 1:18   Cor 1:21.  1 Cor 1:24,30.

 

Is there no wisdom in this land? Is no one left to give wise counsel?

Proverbs 2:2 Proverbs 2:6 Proverbs 2:10 Proverbs 2:12 Proverbs 2:16 Proverbs 3:7 Proverbs 3:13 Proverbs 3:14 Proverbs 3:15 Proverbs 3:18 Proverbs 3:19.Proverbs 4:5Proverbs 4:6 Proverbs 4:7 Proverbs 4:8 Proverbs 4:11 Proverbs 5:1Proverbs 7:4 Proverbs 8:1 Proverbs 8:11 Proverbs 8:12 Proverbs 9:10.Proverbs 9:11 Proverbs 9:12Proverbs 14:33 Proverbs 15:33 Proverbs 16:10 Proverbs 21:30 Proverbs 23:23  Proverbs 24:7   Proverbs 24:14    Proverbs 28:26   TProverbs 29:3   Jeremiah 10:12 Proverbs 11:2 Proverbs 14:6 Proverbs 16:16Proverbs 17:24Isaiah 50:4Jeremiah 10:21Jeremiah 17:5Jeremiah 49:7.
