Devotional/Prayer ~ Be filled with God’s Power and Wisdom
Are you worried or dishearten when others scoff at the Word of God? There are those who’s hobby it is to try and dispute the Bible with you.
1 Corinthians 1:18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God
Be filled with God’s wisdom, do not cast your seeds on bad ground. Instead, save it for the fertile soil that will be presented to you. Recently, someone who used to be a preacher was “arguing” with me about the origins of the Bible and that it’s all of man and so on. There are so many points they can raise against the Bible, if you wish to listen to them. I said nothing but instead prayed for him. You see, sometimes we can study so much, that we begin to see things carnally rather than being guided by the Holy Spirit.
Then a week ago, he started telling me about incidents when the Lord would speak to him, and show him signs and wonders. As I listened to him, I smiled and said “can you explain these things logically?” Of course, he couldn’t. I told him, in the same way, although it may seem logical that the Bible is man-made, etc, I can only believe what has been revealed to me in my heart. When you have a personal relationship with the Lord, the signs and wonders are revealed to you that totally defy logic. That is what your faith is built upon. That is the source of our power.
So don’t be discouraged, preach the Gospel, spread the Word, do the bidding of the Lord, because wisdom has been granted onto you! But remember:
1 Timothy 6:20 Timothy, protect what has been given to you in trust. Avoid godless and pointless discussions and the contradictory claims of so-called “knowledge.”
Have a blessed day!
Prayer: God’s Power and Wisdom
Heavenly Father, thank You for the blessings You pour out upon us daily. May we all be appreciative of the simple things in life and not be torn down by negativity.
I pray that wisdom and knowledge be granted to each person who does not believe on the Word of God. Help us Father, to believe that every Scripture is inspired by You for the purpose of showing us truths and training us to live Your way. Let us be filled with God’s Power and Wisdom.
I declare that we would be equipped and ready to accept every good thing You have in Your storehouse for us. In Jesus’ name, So Be It… Amen!
