Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- June 10, 2011
“Whoever is wise let him heed these things and consider the great love of the Lord.” Psalm 107:43
Wisdom is being aware of the works of Almighty God. It understands the context of what Christ has done over the centuries in people’s lives and through the church. Wise are the men and women who appreciate the Lord’s work in history and learn from ‘His story’. The Bible is pregnant with stories of God’s faithfulness and gives birth to great faith for those who apply its principles to their lives. Wisdom invites the observations of the eye to affect the heart.
When you see God sustain someone under deep distress and severe affliction, your own faith becomes flush with fierce tenacity. Therefore, watch the Lord labor through a mom and dad who unselfishly love and care for their handicap child. Observe God’s work in the business, or ministry leader who is more concerned with the welfare of his or her people than their next career move. Be aware of God’s work around you; apply its lessons and you will become the more wiser. Wisdom is aware.
“For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God” (Psalm 86:10).
Furthermore, as you see your Savior transforming lives, take heed and learn from what you see. Opportunities to observe other’s experiences are meant to be your classroom of instruction in the ways of God. You can become better because of the failures and successes you see played out in other people. Look at how the leaders whom you respect lead, and then follow their example of servant leadership and character.
Pray for others whom you can learn from, like Paul, who humbly said, “I urge you to imitate me” (I Corinthians 4:16).
Find a Paul and emulate their love, courage and concern, all of which are a result of the fruit of the Spirit working from the inside out. Read biographies of His servants whom God has used to advance His agenda. You will become emboldened by their faith and forbearance in the face of adversity and accomplishments.
Their trust in the Lord and His faithfulness is the scarlet thread woven through all their lives. The works of God, through a surrendered saint, is meant to set you on fire for His kingdom’s advancement. Your observations and understanding of the Almighty’s work in and through others wells up in wisdom that is useful and productive in your own life.
The great love of God gets you going beyond yourself to what’s best for the whole. Indeed, the more you observe and act on the Lord’s love, the wiser you will become. Look for love in all the right places and He will place wisdom in your heart. Be aware of the Almighty’s love. Experience it, share it and you will be all the wiser.
“The LORD your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing” (Zephaniah 3:17).
How can I grow in my awareness of my heavenly Father’s great love for others and me?
