As I mentioned in the previous post I am currently reading another devotional series.
This is a 7 day devotional entitled
Seeking Wisdom‘ If you want to read the full devotional click on the hyperlink. If not just wait daily and for the next few days for the completion of the 7 day devotional. I will post their devotional with my own reflection piece.
These Past 6 days these devotionals touched on: Awareness, Assistance, Advice, Assumptions, Acceptance & Application. Today’s subject will be on Awareness.
Associated scripture with today’s devotional:
“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.”
Jeremiah is one of my favorite prophets. He prayed often. He is also known as the prophet who cried often. There is a song which I sing at church which speaks of that.
The song is in Spanish it goes like this
“Como Jeremías, oraba y lloraba
así quiero yo, orar y llorar.//
//Dios le contestaba la petición que hacia,
asi quiero yo que conteste la mía.//“
In English it roughly translates to:
Just like Jeremiah, prayed and cried
That is how I want to pray and cry.
God answered the petitions he made,
That is how I want god to answer mine.
His prayers were always answered. He lived knowing that God would answer his petitions. He had faith. He believed. He trusted. When he prayed he didn’t say I hope. He was determined he said God I know you can….
We should all pray like Jeremiah. With so much faith, trust, passion, fervor and belief in the one true and living God.
This passion, this trust, this much faith and belief leads me to today’s last devotional from the series.
Day 7 Mala Ministries:
Be reminded today that God knows, understands and even cherishes your diligent pursuit of wisdom. As you seek, He is waiting to be found, and wishes to reveal to you “great and unsearchable things you do not know.” Our desperate search for answers can sometimes blind us to the ultimate answer – the source of all things. As we read earlier this week, King Solomon was wise to acknowledge the source of His blessings. If we believe whole-heartedly in the source, there is then no room for fear or doubt, for we know that “from Him and through Him and for Him are all things” (Romans 11:36).
With the pursuit of a goal comes obstacles, challenges, mistakes to be made and lessons to be learned. This journey is no different. We have learned over the last six days that the process of seeking wisdom entails being aware, asking for assistance, receiving advice, being cautious with assumptions, practicing acceptance, and perfecting application – all these actions must be performed deliberately and diligently, with focus and intention. That being the case, another “to-do” may not seem appealing; but you will be happy to know that when it comes to affirmation, the only action required is that we receive it with open hearts.
So to you, friend, God is speaking, loud and clear. He tells you that you can stand affirmed, assured and secure in the knowledge that though the answers to some questions remain uncertain, His supply of wisdom, strength and guidance is certain. It is vast and abundant, and knows no bounds. That promise, as stated in Jeremiah 33:3, is a clear picture of His limitless resource of wisdom, which is yours to claim.
My closing prayer.
Father God most high, only you are worthy of so much praise. You know created the heavens and the earth. You who created man and the animals. You who are the one true living God. Guide me in supplying wisdom, strength and guidance to those in need deer lord. Guide me to the be more like Jeremiah in my prayers dear lord. I will call to you with all my might so that just like you answered Jeremiah you can answer me. I will always keep my eyes, my ears, my mind and my heart open for you dear lord, willing and ready to receive your blessings and word. In the name of the father, the son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
