We are living in a season where we must not be distracted from God’s presence in our lives. God resting in our lives will bring about the testimony of God’s goodness in our lives. We must see Jesus every day and in seeing Him we will become transformed to become like Him in our world. This is what will bring the light of Christ to the darkness around us. We have each been given a path to walk and that path is meant to be filled with the brightness of our heavenly Father’s glory in increasing measures. We will become like whatever, or whoever, is resting in our lives. Whoever, or whatever, is resting in our lives will determine the focus of our lives. The focus of our lives will determine the footsteps of our journey.
Whatever is in the beginning and the end will determine the middle. God must be the beginning of each and every day and He must be the goal of our conclusion in all things. When we make Him our beginning and our end, we will find the goodness of Him in every step of the path of our journey.
Proverbs 24:3 Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; 4 By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
I believe that true wisdom, understanding, and knowledge relate to our identity, testimony, and purpose in life. When we embrace Christ as the foundation and the focus of our attention in life, we experience the growing realities of the unshakable treasures of faith, hope, and love. I believe that God intends for the fruit of true wisdom, understanding, and knowledge in our lives to be that of faith, hope, and love. The beginning is faith.
Faith is the testimony of our relationship with God. It comes by hearing God’s voice in our hearts. Hearing God in our hearts empower a supernatural voice of life in our hearts. What empowers the obedience of our faith? God wants us to know His near and intimate presence in our lives. God’s voice is a voice of love in our hearts. There is nothing more powerful God’s love and the voice of His love in our hearts will be the wisdom that builds our house in life. His voice of love inspires faith and empowers our obedience to His sure and intimate voice.
Romans 16:25 Now to Him who is able to establish you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery kept secret since the world began 26 but now made manifest, and by the prophetic Scriptures made known to all nations, according to the commandment of the everlasting God, for obedience to the faith— 27 to God, alone wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen.
Our Faith is towards the One who is wise. This is the wisdom of God and it is the testimony of the Holy Spirit at work as the Spirit of Wisdom in our lives. Wisdom will lead us to tomorrow. God’s wisdom is not the same as man’s wisdom. Man’s wisdom is concerned with the will of self and it seeks to build a future of human will. God’s wisdom is concerned with the will of God and it causes o future to be built by and for the will of God. God is a giver of life and God’s wisdom in our lives empowers us to be givers of life. The foundation of our house is built by God’s wisdom and the testimony of faith. This is the opposite of natural sight and it can create a world beyond what we have seen, heard, or thought before. The secret to such wisdom is found by Christ in our lives. Jesus must be the center of our world. When Jesus is in the center of our world, our world becomes a world of life. Good is discovered by the presence of the One who is good in our lives. Without Him, men call evil good, and good evil.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight! 22 Woe to men mighty at drinking wine, woe to men valiant for mixing intoxicating drink, 23 who justify the wicked for a bribe, and take away justice from the righteous man! 24 Therefore, as the fire devours the stubble, and the flame consumes the chaff, so their root will be as rottenness, and their blossom will ascend like dust; because they have rejected the law of the Lord of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.
Help us Jesus to see You in our lives. We need the true light of life and You are that light. You are the One who defines all that is good, light, and sweet. Help us not to be wise in our own eyes, but to become right by Your presence in our lives. Change our hearts and change our minds by the by the power of Your love working in our lives. Heal the roots and redeem the fruits of our lives for the glory of Your great Name!
