“Search for them as you would for silver, seek them like hidden treasures. vv 4 For wisdon will enter your heart and knowledge will fill you with joy. vv 10 Wise choices will watch over you. Understanding will keep you safe. vv 11” ~ Proverbs 3
Hello! How’s everybody doing? 🙂 Happy new year! The Bible verses above is part of my daily devotional- today. I just want to share you all the things that I am expecting for this year 2015.
As I ponder in the Word of God, I’ve seen how God guided me and completed me all the way. He is there when I was promoted as part of the leaders in the church which is asking more of my time and more responsibility. He is there even when I am breaking down- left so stressed. Like I forgot all His hopeful Words and His comfort.
This passages gave me a fresh beginning. I was so craving for what the world has to offer but (1) God taught me to seek His face everyday like how I craved for things in this world- and more than that. This things may bring happiness for some time but it will not last for eternity. (2) God taught me to balance my priorities. Can these things be used as an instrument of praise? We are given so many opportunities and wise choices whether these opportunities will lead us to the heart of God or not. (3) God taught me not to focus much on my issues. He told me that it will only rot all His promises for me. All what He has for me. I am so busy making myself better that I only make myself worse. What He has for me is far better than what I plan for myself. (4) God taught me to love others as He loved and forgave me. I’ve checked on my heart lately and I have seen that my love for other people is very shallow, very conditional. God gave us a pattern to obey in His Word, specifically 1 Corinthians 13.
I hope we find changes in God. Find rest in Him. We may have so many things for ourselves but God has far far better than that of our own goals.
God bless us all! 🙂
