Good afternoon! Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today we are testing ourselves with God's definition of call.
Proverbs 2v3 and if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding.
When God says if, that means if you do it, something will happen but if you don't, nothing good for you can happen. God says here if you cry out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then something good will happen. When God gives us an if there is always going to be a then that comes after it, that causes the good! This time God tells if we ask by calling out we then will receive the understanding in fearing the Lord and the knowledge of God. He first tells us we will be asking as His son, this means in the new testament we will be asking as His Son Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ says if we ask for anything in his name we will receive it. Today are we interested in God's wisdom, are we calling out or asking for it? Do we truly want to know through His understanding what is right and just and fair-every good path He wants us to take or do we rely on making our own path. Are we living by our own wisdom of telling people what they want to hear instead of telling them what the need to hear. Do we care about being saved from becoming wicked men today or are we just walking along not caring the outcome of ourselves and others. Do we care if God's wisdom is in our hearts because we are so busy controlling our own hearts fulfilling our own desires and not thinking of His desires, and His will for our lives? Do we live to fulfill the desires of the Holy Spirit that is living in us, do we know His voice, His understanding and His way of life? Today IF, you desire to please Him then call out and receive all He has for you in Faith in Jesus Christ, in what He did on the cross for you, call out to him in repentance and receive the Holy Spirit that gives you all you need for this life. He will make you a new person with a limitless supply of understanding, wisdom, and knowledge that lives in your heart for ever growing everyday into His image of truth in who you are! You will be saved by the blood of Jesus from ways of the wicked men within you, from men whose words are perverse, who leave the straight paths, and whose paths are crooked!! Thank you Jesus for saving us from the world, Satan and ourselves, only through calling out to you can we get true insight and understanding, through your salvation of our souls! Read Proverbs 2 and Colossians 2. I love everyone with the love Christ gives me for you!
