Blessings of God’s Wisdom

When we have finally reached the bottom of hopelessness and despair, we have looked everywhere to find some hope, the only place we have to look is up. As we examine our lives and rehearse all we have been through, remember all those who have promised to stay with us, but drifted away at the beginning of the roughest times, we look for some stability in life and a reason for staying.

Our body, our soul, our spirit is created by God to seek Him, worship Him and yield to Him by accepting His grace and total forgiveness. We raise our hands and our hearts to reach out to Him and His blessings; we seek His comfort and forgiveness by yielding to Him and accepting Him. Only then can we find rest in our own selves as we forgive ourselves from within His mercy and grace. We find forgiveness and deep joy in King Solomon’s message in Proverbs chapter three:

“Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.” (Proverbs 3:13 KJV)

Finally, we find deep joy and contentment when we commit ourselves to God and His Wisdom. When we finally yield ourselves over to God and submit to His Spirit to lead us throughout our lives, we find a deep satisfaction that cannot be obtained from anywhere else. We are more than happy; we are filled with a deeply-rooted joy through a washing of our spirit that returns a fulfillment that feels almost like it is heaven-filled. We walk in step with God, pleasing Him as we have yielded to Him; He rewards us with knowing we are at last right with Him. It brings a lasting reward that opens our eyes to understanding that goes beyond anything we have ever experienced.
