Where is Wisdom?

Skip to the back of the Book for the answer, right?

I would recommend reading the Epistle of James for a “let’s cut to the chase” approach to finding Biblical truth.  This is the “Be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only” book of the Bible.  The letter is written by the brother of Jesus, known as James (traditionally).  He must have been a “shoot from the hip” sorta guy, as he wastes few words and makes his points clear, verse by verse.

Whenever I feel that I am losing myself in my Christian walk, I often end up with James.  His approach to testing and temptation is so practical:

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. ~ James 1:5 NKJV

See what I mean?  Wisdom is not elusive to those whose faith is being tested.  But here is the key:

But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. ~ James 1:6-8 NKJV (emphasis added)

So when I am feeling at a loss during trials of life, that means I forgot to humble myself and ask my Father in Heaven for the answers – Then thank Him for answering my prayer – and leave it there.

I once heard of a follower of Christ who prayed only once about any request or need.  When asked why he didn’t pray longer, or repeatedly for the same need, his answer was, “Why bother to pray at all if I don’t have faith that God heard me the first time and will certainly answer?”

I tend to agree.

Recommend:  Read James to get wised up on how the “Implanted Word is able to save your souls”.  James is a short book of the Bible; just five brief chapters, but it packs a wallop on how to live a faith-filled life for God.

Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. For I command you this day to love the Lord your God and to keep His commands, decrees, and regulations by walking in His ways. If you do this, you will live and multiply, and the Lord your God will bless you and the land you are about to enter and occupy. ~ Deuteronomy 30:15-16 NLT

Follow the words of Jehovah God for blessings individually and nationally.  Those who have gone before us knew that freedom is not free.  They founded this nation based upon God’s Biblical laws; erected monuments to the Ten Commandments; raised up Christian churches with crosses on their steeples; and sent missionaries worldwide to spread the gospel.  Tomorrow is more than just a day to have a cookout with family and friends.

TURN!  Bow the knee.  Pray, repent and believe in Jesus Christ as Savior!

Praise the Lord for the USA!  Happy Independence Day!  Be blessed.

The May Tree blooming in June.  It has a friend that lives beside it – A Siberian Larch.

Even the wilderness and the desert will be glad in those days. The wasteland will rejoice and blossom with spring crocuses. Yes, there will be an abundance of flowers and singing and joy! The deserts will become as green as the mountains of Lebanon, as lovely as Mount Carmel or the plain of Sharon. There the Lord will display His glory, the splendor of our God. With this news, strengthen those who have tired hands, and encourage those who have weak knees. Say to those with fearful hearts, “Be strong, and do not fear, for your God is coming to destroy your enemies. He is coming to save you. ~ Isaiah 35:1-4 NLT

What’s in Your Book?

Today I am thankful that God made a divine plan for my life way back before the world was formed.  He had the angels write it all down in a book – my book.

Now if I could just learn how to walk out what is written there – ahh, that would be the fullness of life.

Are you living out the fullness of what God planned for your life?  Have you asked Him prayerfully what He wrote about you in your book?

Canada—We Need To Wake Up

Re-blogging thotsfromgeorge on Canada, God, politics, and voting for major changes in government. Sound familiar?

““Has a nation [ever] changed gods Even though they were not gods [but merely man-made objects]? But My people have exchanged their Glory (the true God) For that [man-made idol] which does not benefit [them].”

‭‭JEREMIAH‬ ‭2:11‬ ‭AMP‬‬

How sad to recall, and admit, that our great country has done this. Canada was founded on the Word of God, with the leaders serving God. Laws were set according to God’s Word.

Through the early years, even until the mid 20th century or so, Prayer was said in schools daily.

Then the radical shift came in where prayer was abandoned, even the pledge of allegiance to our country, Canada, was abandoned.

Government moved in a way, saying they are the ones who will meet the needs of the people. But as we know, they cannot do what God is able to do.

Government said, “Look to us, we know what is…
