Seeking Heavenly Wisdom

images/cat/wisdom.jpg
Wisdom cries out in the street; she utters her voice in the markets. [...] whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure from fear of evil.
(Proverbs 1:20,33)

The Bible tells us that wisdom is "the principle thing" (Prov. 4:7) and that it is to be desired and sought after (Prov. 2:4).  Wisdom is extremely precious (Prov. 16:16) and there are endless promises in God's Word for those who acquire this treasure.

True wisdom comes from above, it is heavenly and pure, and God wants to bless us with this priceless gift (James 1:5).  It may be foolishness to many, but what a blessing to those who understand its worth!

Wherever we are on our faith journey, there is always room to become wiser and none of us can say that they have attained perfect wisdom and understanding.  But we continually need to seek this wisdom to enable us to mature and grow in Christ.  This is a lifetime endeavour as we fix our eyes on Jesus and desire Him, who is the ultimate Wisdom of God.

COVID-19 Truth & Lies: Part 1 - Trust in the Lord

We are living in unprecedented times. Never in history have we seen people – sick and healthy alike – being quarantined in their homes, prohibited from going to work and forced to keep their distance from one another on such a global scale, all for the fear of an invisible virus. If we had been told even a few months ago that this would be happening soon, most probably none of us would even have believed it!

Prayer Keeps You From Pride

When I was praying the other day, this phrase dropped into my heart, "prayer keeps you from pride". As I was pondering on these words, I suddenly realised that the opposite is also true, "pride keeps you from prayer". [Sigh...] I know too well what that means - from experience!

Prayer Keeps us from Pride

Prayer has a way of humbling us because praying means that we acknowledge our need for God. It means recognizing that we are not able to face situations on our own; that we need help from above.
