Hello blog readers,
So much has happened within the last few months, and I want to devote more time to sharing those things with you. I am excited to be going on my first mission trip this summer to Ghana, Africa! I will be sure to update you on that, and blog about the experience. For now, I want to share what God is sharing with me about wisdom. He wants us to ask for it! A lot of it! Last night during my prayer time, the Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer. I began to write as He spoke. This is what He said:
“Ask for wisdom and it will be given. Ask for wisdom. It will be given. Ask for nothing else in the days ahead, except for wisdom, and it will be given in measure unimaginable. Ask for more wisdom. Do not accept no for an answer. Wisdom is the best thing you can ask for. Wisdom is freedom from sin. Wisdom is wealth in spirit. Wisdom is giving to others freely because it comes back a thousand fold. Wisdom is fragrant in the realm of eternity. Wisdom is found in Jesus. Hidden in Jesus. The wisdom of the world is foolish to Him. He is Almighty El Shaddai. Everlasting power belongs to Him. The saints come to Him for more wisdom.”
Lord, I thank you for your wisdom. Thank you for loving me so much, that you would share your wisdom with me. I need your wisdom for everything I do… from responding to an uncomfortable request from a co-worker, to effectively disciplining my son, to admitting when I forgot to respond to a text, to not laughing at workplace gossip, to knowing where to invest my time and money, and the list goes on and on. Thank you. I know you are here for me.
This prayer is what the Holy Spirit asked me to repeat:
“I will receive wisdom, upon wisdom, upon wisdom in the days ahead. I will receive no more than I can bear to handle, in Jesus’ name. Amen”
Proverbs 4:6-7 Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
