May my faith be proved by acts to be a faith that works by love

Jamieson, Fausset, Brown Commentary on Philemon 1:6

Wisdom

1.) Read Job 28

What an amzing picture this paints in my mind! God alone understands wisdom and its orgins. After he has looked at wisdom and appraised it, and confirmed it, and tested it, then He says to man, “The fear of the Lord - that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” (Job 28:28)

2.) Now read Proverbs 8

Verses 22-30 paint another amazing picture in my head! I love how wisdom is described as being “filled with delight day after day, rejoicing always in [God’s] presence” (vs.30). I long for this to be true in my life as well. To be filled with delight day after day, rejoicing in the presence of God. :)

Another part of this proverb that stuck out to me was this; “I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me” (vs. 17). “For those who find me find life and receive favor from the Lord. But those who fail to find me harm themselves; all who hate me love death.” (vs. 35-36)

This is amazing!

  • The fear of the Lord - that is wisdom.
  • Wisdom is found my those who seek for it.
  • And those who find wisdom, find life and recieve favor from the Lord.

Unrest

My heart is troubled. I am trying to distunguish between my own fears and questioning and what the Lord is saying. I need everything blotted out except for His voice. Lord, I pray for YOUR peace. Show me Your plan for my life. Help my doubts to not get in the way of what You are trying to show me….

When Satan tempts me to despair
And tells me of the guilt within
Upward I look and see him there
Who made an end to all my sin
Because the sinless savior died
My sinful soul is counted free
For God the just is satisfied
To look on Him and pardon me

Be still awhile and let God love you. For just a moment, don’t think about methods, or achievements, or past mistakes. Let God heal your heart, soothe your worries, and be your rock. Seek to utterly depend on Him.

Don’t hold the hand of another doubt
You gotta know, yeah you gotta know,
There’s something more to this life if you let go
