Knowing God, Knowing me

Today I am looking at Psalms 139
('Search me, God, and know my heart: 
test me and know my anxious thoughts' - v23)

When thinking about true and sound wisdom, I have come to learn that this consists of two parts; the knowledge of God and of ourselves.
I have always tried to be a honest person and true to my friends. I hope they have shown me the same respect. For only by their honesty, I can be a better person and gain God's knowledge and wisdom.
So to have a happy and fulfilling life and reflect the love of God.
We can also invite the Holy Spirit to guide us on our journey as we experience our day to day life.
God has always blessed me and I am truly thankful for His gracious love.
Life is like a cup of coffee...

The A-Z of wisdom and life

Today I am studying Proverbs 31:10-31
(She is clothed with strength and dignity, she can laugh at the days to come"- v25)
Proverbs ends with the description of a wise life. Who would you choose to fill this description? In this scripture, Proverbs has selected a ordinary wife and mother who lives in a busy house-hold and wider community. She has many demands but handles them with courage and gracefulness. She is respected for her serenity and kindness. Not easy skills to achieve of that time (I am sure) or of our times today. We are all challenged by our ever changing world but how are we suppose to cope? How do we stop ourselves from being dragged into difficult situations? Verses 10-31 are an acrostic, each one beginning with a successive letter of the Hebrew alphabet. All carefully ordered to describe her personality and beauty. I believe it is a guideline of how God wants us to live. When  I look at the wonders of God's creation, I see His strength and His power, bringing good to us all. Always trusting and believing that I am protected and loved. Nothing is impossible with Hope and Faith. God's wisdom is all around us... Praise be to God and thank you.

Life and Eternity


Today I am studying Ecclesiastes 2 : 1-11, 15-25
('Like the fool, the wise too must die!')

This has been a challenging scripture for me to understand in many ways. 
The author of Ecclesiastes is thought to be Solomon but not everyone is sure. His goal was to seek out the meaning and purpose of life. He indulged himself in everything. Pleasure, drink, possessions, intimacy, great projects, empire building - granting himself nothing that the eye could see.
His conclusion was that if death ends everything, then the purpose of pursuit of wisdom is meaningless. Such a life with no eternal aspect is futile and the best we can expect is eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die.
However, if the focus of wisdom is life, it is important to recognize that eternity has been set in our hearts (Ecc.3:11) -"He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from the beginning to end."
So from my understanding, I feel that the more wisdom and knowledge I gain, the better understanding I will have of the home that God has built for each and everyone of us.
Praise be to God. 
Much of our culture is geared on denying aging and death instead of befriending it. If instead we were to see that it is part of our calling and know there is purpose to our life, that we are all unique and have so much to give. With this, I believe we will be rewarded.
What actions is God prompting you to take today?

What is stopping us

Today I am looking at 1 Samuel 2:3
("Do not keep talking so proudly, 
or let your mouth speak such arrogance ...v3")

I read a article the other day about some researchers who conducted an experiment in which frogs were placed in separate glass jars and covered with lids to stop them from escaping (this didn't sit with me well but I continued to read it). At first the frogs kept jumping, trying to escape, but kept hitting their heads on the lids. Over a period of time they stopped jumping, so the researcher removed the lids but the frogs made no attempt to escape. Their investigation lead the researchers to believe that the frogs had formed a belief system that the top of the jar was as high as they could go...
There are many things to consider in the above paragraph but my main point is are we holding on to a limiting belief system and sabotaging our future? "I'm too young, too old, I'm a woman, I'm the wrong nationality, I'm disabled.  I'm don't have talent and not educated. Or sometimes worse, are we using these examples as weapons against other people, which can be damaging... be mindful.
God see us all and knows what is in our heart.
I read a post today and it said "Listen and silent has the same letters... think about it."
Jesus thank you for your unconditional love, guidance and protection.

Absurd lives?

Today I am looking at John 10:1-11
(I have come that they may have life, and have it in full - v10)

When reading John 10, I recalled a time when I was visiting one of our town's shopping malls. I was waiting to get into a lift to get to my destination. I picked the smaller size lift as there was quite a lot of people using them and I wasn't in a rush. As I watched, people entered the other lift and off it went. A few minutes later the doors opened and to my surprise the same people were still in there. No one moved and off it went again. I was really puzzled as it happened again. The same people were still standing there. I looked up above the doors and I saw a glowing "red button". When the doors open this time, I alerted the people that the lift was broken and wasn't moving. So the people got out, but what really amazed me was that the people standing out in front of the broken lift. heard what I said and still got in the lift. It was absurd!!
Absurd means senseless and meaningless.The beauty of this scripture is that Jesus came to save us,"I am the good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me"-v14.
But do we listen to Him? Does His words fall on deaf-ears?
Just like a shepherd and his flock, the sheep know him, they know his voice and so they follow him. he care for them and will keep them safe. A hired man does not care, if a  wolf should comes along, he will run away and leave them.
Jesus came to give us eternal life and we will never perish if we follow Him and listen to His word.
Psalm 150 -"Let everything that breath praise the Lord"- v6
Praise the Lord.
Amen.

Reflecting on Life

Today I am looking at Proverb 6:6-11;
Matthew 6:25-34
('Go to the ant, you sluggard: consider its ways and be wise!'(6:6)

I remember when I was in my teens, having the privilege of visiting a family, who lived in a farm-house in the middle of the Swiss Alps. I recall sitting outside their home and as I looked up, I was surrounded by beautiful mountains. There was all sorts of green foliage at the bottom of them and the tops were dusted with snow. The sky was light blue and the clouds looked like cotton-wool, slowly floating above me. The hot air warmed my skin and the sun was glowing so intensely, I had to shield my eyes. I felt completely relaxed. It was the most peaceful place that I had ever been to and I was in awe by the whole experience. God's presence and the magitude of His wisdom was all around me. It was perfect.  Looking back now, I have a better understanding, awareness and appreciation. I feel so blessed.
Proverbs encourages us to 'go to the ants' and Jesus directs us to look at the birds and consider the flowers, to see the recognition of God's wisdom that is written into the very DNA of creation.
To reflect and observe an understanding of God's character, so that we can have better knowledge, understanding and attitude in our daily life . To take more consideration and be aware of our actions, so that we can have peace in our hearts.
Creation is not just a backdrop of our lives, it declares God's glory. Not to mention His infinite grace and His love for all creation.
For this I am truly thankful and grateful Lord.

Discernment: Listening

Today I am studying 1 Kings 19:1-18
('after the earthquake came a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire. And after the fire came a gentle whisper' v1)

Karl A. Menniger quoted -'Listening is a magnetic and strange thing, a creative force. The friends that listens to us are the ones we move toward. When we are listened to, it creates us, make us unfold and expand'. Discernment is primarily about listening - listening to God in whatever way he chooses to speak and communicate with us. But do we hear him or our we even listening? In my "May blog, Paul Baloche song - The Same Love, is a perfect example..." Is our life occupied with so much, that we don't take 'time out' to listen to God!!
In this scripture, Elijah is travelling towards Horeb, trying to escape from Ahab and Jezebel. He is afraid and things are overflowing; exhaustion and resentment (I have had enough); disillusionment (I am no better than my ancestors); hopelessness (they have rejected Your covenant) and loneliness (I am the only one left).
It took forty days before Elijah's internal noise quietened enough for him to hear God in a gentle whisper but when he did, vision was received, energy replaced, loneliness banished and confidence that God is on His throne renewed.
We have all been exhausted and resentful. Felt disillusionment, hopelessness and loneliness.  Maybe we should all be a little more aware ourselves, to hear God's whisper and allow Him to guide us in times of trouble.
Lord, help me to be still and hear your gentle whisper too.

Wisdom and Life

Today I am studying Proverbs 8:22-36
("Then I was beside him as a master craftsman; And I was daily his delight, Rejoicing always before him"-v30, NKJ)

When I thought about this scripture it reminded me of a time when I lost my house keys (we have all been there!!), trying to remember when I last had them and coming up with the plan to 'start from the beginning' and retrace my steps, eventually I found them.
'In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God'( John 1:1). Proverb 8 reflects that wisdom, was there from the beginning, 'I was appointed from eternity,from the beginning, before the world began-v23. The craftsman at our Father's side as He created the world. The wisdom that laid the earth's foundations perfectly for life. From reading various articles, I believe that the structure of the universe can be determined by a series of  fundamental constraints that shape its contours and development. Had these been different, the universe would have taken a very different form and life as we know it, could not have existed. The design of the universe has enabled us to sustain life.
In God's wisdom, all creation have air to breathe, water to drink, food to eat and a place to stand. We are no accident and our lives have meaning. In God's great wisdom, He formed the universe and we were always part of the plan.
Praise be to our God.

Wisdom requires us to stop

Today I am looking at Mark 1:35-39

(Jesus got up, left the house and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed-v35)

I remember taking my son to school one day and being in a complete rush. In my hast, I quickly parked the car and bolted out of the driver's seat. Not paying attention I turned and walked into the lamp-post by my car. in panic mode and a very painful, throbbing head. I took my son to school. Still on automatic pilot continued on my journey.
I was on a long road with not much traffic and as I continued to drive, I saw a car on the same side of the road, heading towards me flashing their lights. at that point I realized I was on the wrong side of the road. Thankfully, I pulled over and stopped. I was blessed that day.
It is so easy to get caught up in our fast pace lifestyle, going along and not caring for our own needs and being on the go all the time, not noticing the important things.
In this scripture Jesus is showing us that it is important to stop, spending time in prayer. Evan when everyone was looking for him, he knew his purpose and continued on.
Sometime it is easier to just keep going, as it could be a way of blocking out pain and ignoring that we are broken in some way, rather than allowing God to heal, restore and guide us.
With 'time wisdom' it encourages us to stop and listen to our loving Father's words of healing and direction. True fruitfulness and love comes from connection with God as my blog "Wisdom requires Strategy" video shows.
Thank you Lord for being my comforter - Amen.
