The Benefits of Wisdom 01-31-15

Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for He is good, yes He good. The day we have before us is brand new, without blemish and ready for you to create a masterpiece like the artist that the Lord has made you! The proper thing for us to do with this new canvas is to start something fresh in our lives. Do it one step at a time.

Today’s Prayer

Father, we said that we loved You, but clouds started to gather ’round. We said we trusted You, then we lost our job. We said You wanted only good for us, and sickness stalked our families. Oh Lord, we try so hard to be a Christians – why us? Then in our despair we cried out to You for help, and You said, “I thought you’d never ask!” Oh Lord, what lengths You went to, to get our attention! Help us to learn not to lean on our own understanding, but rather to turn to You for the answers to our problems. Help us, for often we find that we are unable to help ourselves. We do need You! Help us to be patient. In JESUS’ name we pray. Amen.

Let’s eat.

The Benefits of Wisdom
Proverbs 2:1-8 – 

My child, listen to me and treasure my instructions. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight and understanding. Search for them as you would for lost money or hidden treasure. Then you will understand what it means to fear the LORD, and you will gain knowledge of God. For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding. He grants a treasure of good sense to the godly. He is their shield, protecting those who walk with integrity. He guards the paths of justice and protects those who are faithful to him.

Quote of the Day

Oh, it is sad for a poor Christian to stand at the door of the promise, in the dark night of affliction, afraid to draw the latch, whereas he should then come boldly for shelter as a child into his father’s house.
