The Wise Ask

Tonight might seem like any other night and yet, tomorrow you may arise different. For if you ask Me for wisdom, I will give it–speak it to you, even in your sleep.

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me.” Psalms 16:7

Your spirit, like Mine, doesn’t slumber, it will hear Me, the words that I speak, just as if you were awake, but without all the confusion of daily activities catching you away.

My children often fail to ask for wisdom, believing that it is just given, liberally. But My Word says to ask. I implore you to seek wisdom from above, for it is only through wisdom that the work should be done.

“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you cry out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.

For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and preserving the way of his saints.” Proverbs 2:1-8

“Take my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for wisdom is better than jewels, and all that you may desire cannot compare with her.” Proverbs 8:10-11

“I have counsel and sound wisdom, I have insight, I have strength. By me kings reign, and rulers decree what is just; by me princes rule, and nobles govern the earth. I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me.

Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and prosperity. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in paths of justice, endowing with wealth those who love me, and filling their treasuries.” Proverbs 8:14-21

“Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser; teach a righteous man and he will increase in learning. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight. For by me your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life.” Proverbs 9:9-11

“Therefore it is said, ‘Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.’ Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of the time, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:14-15

“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven and tossed by the wind. For that person must not suppose that a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways, will receive anything from the Lord.” James 1:5-8

“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.” Psalms 51:6

 

 

A Fresh New Heart

Good Morning Lord, how would you like me to start today?

With a new heart.

You don’t like my heart?

I love your heart, but one’s heart carries so much traffic throughout a day, that the next day it’s as if it is already spent.

I’d like you to start with a fresh new heart–every day.

Push the cares out of the way before you sleep; give them to Me. You’ll sleep better, mornings will be fresher and you will have a heart that’s ready for more–before we start.

When you have days when your heart weighs heavy, likewise will your mind be weighted down with a confusion of thoughts.

“Anxiety in a man’s heart weighs him down, but a good word makes him glad.” Proverbs 12:25

I came that you might have abundant life.

Not abundant cares, nor abundant worries but, life. So cast those cares upon Me for I AM, and I care for you. When you do that, release trust that I will take care of it–

I’ll take that care with answered prayer.

“When the cares of my heart are many, thy consolations cheer my soul.” Psalms 94:19

“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time. Casting all your care upon him for he careth for you.” I Peter 5:6-7 KJV

You receive your answer by faith, when you believe.

When you are faithful–full of faith, I AM faithful–full of faith to give. Thus your faith increases as your heart releases your cares unto Me.

Good morning!

Ready for a fresh start?

I love your brand new heart.

Let us fill it with abundant life!

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

“Cast your burden on the Lord, and he will sustain you; he will never permit the righteous to be moved.” Psalms 55:22

“Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being; therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart. Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean; wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow. Fill me with joy and gladness; let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice. Hide thy face from my sins, and blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and put a new and right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:6-10

“I bless the Lord who gives me counsel; in the night also my heart instructs me. I keep the Lord always before me; because he is at my right hand, I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my soul rejoices; my body also dwells secure. For thou dost not give me up to Sheoul, or let thy godly one see the Pit. Thou dost show me the path of life; in thy presence there is fulness of joy, in thy right hand are pleasures for evermore.” Psalms 16:7-11
