Today Reminder - 30 March 2012 (Wisdom)

My prayer for you for today is that God will give you complete knowledge of His will and that He will give you spiritual wisdom and understanding, in Jesus name.

Colossians 1:9-10
So we have not stopped praying for you since we first heard about you. We ask God to give you complete knowledge of His will and to give you spiritual wisdom and understanding. Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and your lives will produce every kind of good fruit. All the while, you will grow as you learn to know God better and better.

Spiritual wisdom. I think this is something we all need, and at that I mean wisdom. I have seen so many people make terrible mistakes out of a lack of wisdom. Spiritual wisdom is not self-gained wisdom but wisdom that comes from God through the Holy Spirit. Imagine the clarity that we will have in life if we are full of spiritual wisdom. But Paul ads on the word “Understanding” and this is so important, because knowing only is not enough, we have to understand also. Having wisdom but not understanding it can be dangerous and could send us in the wrong direction.

Paul writes that having wisdom with understanding will allow you to live a life that will always bring honour to God and most of all please Him and in this you will produce every kind of fruit. This is just awesome, because it will let you grow in your knowledge of God so that you will learn to know Him better. This is one thing I believe the world really needs and that is to know God better. We are so easily distracted by worldly ideas and we never question it with wisdom from the Holy Spirit. It is sad to see how people can so easily be let astray by unacceptable worldly ideas. So it is even more so important that we pray for spiritual wisdom not only in our lives but to lead those that are lost back to the kingdom of God.

My dear friend, I pray that God will give you spiritual wisdom so that you will learn to know Him better and better so that together we will produce fruit that will glorify God up to eternity.

Have an awesome day, dear friend of Jesus.

Cheers
