Divine Note #11-08 - Wisdom comes only from God – James 1:5; Psalm 111:10

Written Nov. 21, 2010

James 1:5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives to all generously and without criticizing, and it will be given to him.

Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his instructions have good insight. His praise endures forever.

I have by no means arrived at the gates of wisdom, but I am certainly not the person I was a year ago. My walk with God and my desire to know his heart has resulted in some pretty amazing God-given revelations. Don’t get me wrong, I stumble and I fall, but now I have a deeper understanding of my journey. Here are a few lessons that the Lord has taught me:
• I can’t do everything by myself. In my zeal to serve God, I’ve overloaded my schedule and failed to focus on the plans that he has for me.
• God has asked me to focus my ministries and I continue to make adjustments in response.
• I must listen to God. This means I have to sit, listen and understand how the Holy Spirit wants me to proceed. This has been a life-long challenge for me and God has really brought this to my attention.
• I can’t trust people just because they claim to be “Christians.” I have been burned in a big way, which brings me to the next item …
• Satanic attacks are real, especially when we step out to serve God in a big way. Arm yourself and be prepared to fight. I have to thank God for my faith community, which brings to me to …
• Keep company with strong Christians you can trust...
But the biggest revelation for me has been that the process of becoming the person God designed me to be will be a life-long adventure. I can make it hard or I can decide that I will allow God to reveal things that must change.
I’m open to God’s will. Are you?
