The Power of Spiritual Wisdom


One does not teeter on the fence of decision-making when they are called to transcend barriers. Their focus should not be swayed by the external forces compelling them to choose. Instead, serenity and the readiness to respond will manifest when their attention is devoted to the Word.

Though the past remains unchangeable, your future holds the promise of a blank canvas. It is pristine and unmarked, offering a realm of endless possibilities. By embracing the lessons of the past in the present moment, you chart a course forward, guided by the lantern of wisdom, towards a horizon of new beginnings.


In such newfound wisdom, trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.

Psalms 50:15

And call upon Me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify Me.


Concerning this, Barnes wrote: There is no way in which we can honor God more, or show more clearly that we truly confide in him, than by going to him when everything seems to be dark; when his own ways and dealings are wholly incomprehensible to us, and committing all into his hands.

Exposition on the book of Ephesians


I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

Ephesians 4:1


  • Understand your calling, and paths will emerge for you to heed and pursue it. Act in a manner that honors your vocation. Remember, it wasn’t by your will power that you entered this calling; you were summoned to serve the Lord.

May the days ahead be of such ...

That He (The Lord) Would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man.

Beyond Self-Help: Trust in the Lord

One thing that is always present with you is your awareness. Where there is awareness, may you use the right discernment. Knowing where I am is not where I want to be in my life. Considering it is our actions, and our will, which at times usually placed us in such a place. Even then, let your desire be, ‘Lord, help me, hear me.’ When we know the danger of our situation, the honest is our prayer.


To this we pray. In like manner we say:

Hope in Christ is the reflection of an earnest efforts to become complete.


The word ‘hope’ here, implies a good or a pleasing anticipation. And anticipation is confidence. With confidence we obtain the discernment and thrust needed to navigate forward in the journey of life.


And every man that has this hope in him purifies himself, even as Christ is pure.

1 John 3:3

Who are you? Do you truly know yourself? You know your name, but it was given to you by someone else, not of your own choosing. So, who are you really? You have your own thoughts, but can you control them? Are you truly in control?

Pause and look at the time on your wristwatch or device. Do you see the time? Say it out loud. Then, consider your surroundings, whether you’re at home or somewhere else. Look at the time again and pause.

Can you confidently say that you control what will happen around you an hour from now? So, are you really in control as you think you are?

Being aware of the time doesn’t mean you control your destiny. If you’re not in the driver’s seat of life, do you even know where you’re headed? Even now, you can’t hold a perfect thought to ponder this question.…


Acquiring wisdom and showing the fruits thereof.

Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?

Proverbs 8:1


Or as it is rendered in the original text. ‘Does not wisdom call? And does not understanding speak?’

While the tranquility of the present moment may not entirely eliminate the disruptions that come with the passage of time, it does lay the groundwork for facing the uncertainties of the future. This serenity equips the mind with the wisdom needed to navigate through the impending night, towards the dawn’s break. Even though darkness may descend with the night, rest assured that the sun will rise again, illuminating what was once hidden in the shadows.

If we confess our sins, the Lord is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9


The concept of sin often extends beyond actions to encompass thoughts and attitudes toward others. It’s important to remember that self-examination is a daily process. As we draw closer to the Light of the Lord, we may become more aware of our imperfections. This doesn’t necessarily mean we are becoming more sinful, but rather that our understanding of right and wrong is becoming clearer. This heightened awareness can guide us towards personal growth and spiritual development. It’s a journey of continuous learning and accountability.


But if we confess our sins to God, he will keep his promise and do what is right: he will forgive us our sins and purify us from all our wrongdoing.

NEW YEAR

OLD METHOD


Keep your heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Proverbs 4:23

Grace Nightingale

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Psalms 119:130

In the verse above, the term “the entrance” signifies an “opening”. For the rest of this year, make it a habit to open your Bible every morning to kickstart your day. Before you delve into reading, take a moment to pray for guidance on where to begin.

The phrase “gives light” embodies the concept of dawn, symbolizing the start of a glorious day.

As we unveil His messages to us through Bible reading, may our day be filled with the enlightenment of understanding and glory. With the innocence of a child, let us allow the Lord to guide us, rather than allowing the unresolved issues of life to impose upon us a state of discomfort and worry.

Open the Word and receive your blessing.

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.

Colossians 4:2


Often, our prayers may seem like complaints to the Lord. However, let's not forget to express our gratitude, not only through our actions and words but also in our prayers. For it is in thankfulness that we truly acknowledge His grace and mercy.
