Yesterday I wrote about trusting in the Lord with all our heart and not leaning on our own understanding from Proverbs 3:5.
I thought how God asks us in Isaiah 1:18 (KJV), to “Come, let us reason together,” saith the Lord, “though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be white as wool.”
God encourages people to get to know Him. Proverbs is filled with references from Solomon to his sons to seek Wisdom – one of God’s attributes.
In Proverbs 16:16, (KJV) it says, “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!”
In Matthew 6:33, (KJV), Jesus says: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
He’s telling His followers not to worry about food and clothing. God will provide. Jesus also told believers in Luke 6:38, (KJV), “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.”
That’s why believers have a faith walk. God’s directions contradict the world’s directions. When I’ve tested God’s Word, it’s been true.
My newborn son many years ago contracted Echo Virus, which destroyed 90 % of his liver. The infection specialist at a major university hospital told us the virus could move and destroy his heart or other major organs.
My husband and I didn’t break down crying or behave like we were in the middle of a crisis. She said, “Do you hear what I’m telling you?”
We assured her that we heard her clearly. We told her we were praying for our son and trusting in God. She shook her head and walked away.
It took thirty days before God healed our son and our faith and our emotions hit highs and lows. When my faith climbed the summit, his faith might be at rock bottom, and vice-versa.
Even our nine year old daughter prayed when I couldn’t believe for an IV to be removed from the baby’s scalp. The Lord answered her prayer!
Reading in Psalm 34:8, (KJV), I found, “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.”
It’s our choice.
