Words from the Heart for Wednesday October 10th, 2018
By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens. By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.
Proverbs 3:19-20 (NLT)
Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge
Yes, the Lord is more than capable of directing our lives. He is the source of all wisdom and knowledge. Creation itself is a display of that divine wisdom and limitless knowledge. And, as Creator, He also is capable of sustaining what He has made. We can ask Him to reveal what is hidden. We can ask Him today for wisdom. He has an abundant supply.
I found a website filled with wise quotes by Canadians. For example, Janice Gross Stein, a political scientist, asked, “Would you be happy if all your emails were made public?” Singer-songwriter Jann Arden said, “If you’re going to get out there and not be prepared to fail, you’re missing out on life. Failure is half the fun.” Artist Alex Colville said, “It’s the ordinary things that seem important to me.” And Jim Carey said “Time spent laughing at yourself is time well spent.”
It doesn’t take long to look at our world to begin to get an idea about the nature of the God who created it all. If you have ever been a part of organizing a project, you know how much thought, knowledge, and planning needs to go into it. It can take months, even years, to pull off a successful endeavour. If this is so when it comes to human plans, imagine what God had to do when He created the universe. The more we get to know our world, the more we get to know God. Proverbs 3:19-20 says this, “By wisdom the Lord founded the earth; by understanding he created the heavens. By his knowledge the deep fountains of the earth burst forth, and the dew settles beneath the night sky.” The mind of God is so far superior to the greatest human mind. His wisdom is perfect, there is nothing He doesn’t understand and He is the genius of geniuses. When we acknowledge this, it makes sense that we would trust Him in all things. How will your understanding of God’s great mind impact how you live your life today?
These have been words from the heart.
