Thought of the day (12)

Thought of the day: How wise you are, or how much understanding you have, does not depend on your age or experience. What matters is seeking out God in what life you live. "But it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand. It is not the old who are wise, nor the aged who understand what is right." Job 32:8-9.

While those who have lived longer have had more opportunity to seek God through more opportunities, it is important for everyone, regardless of age, to remember it is not experiences or trails that teach us wisdom. It is, in fact, God revealing Himself to us and allowing us to gain wisdom and understanding through those experiences. David was a young king, yet he was wise WELL beyond his years, because he was AFTER God's heart. Ask God and seek His understanding, and He is not only willing to grant you it, He is YEARNING to reveal His greatness and wonder to you.

This is my prayer to everyone today, that you might be a CHILD after God's own heart; seeking His endless wonders and wisdom more and more each day. I pray that you may never slow down in your walk to know God's heart and plan for you, and that you will never look back, but will continue to press on toward your goal. Finally, I pray that, as God reveals himself and His plan for you to you, that you may allow the Spirit in you to live through you and effect all that you come in contact with today and in every day to come.

Job 32:8-9

"But it is the spirit in man, the breath of the Almighty, that makes him understand. It is not the old who are wise, nor the aged who understand what is right."

Hosea 6:3

Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn; he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth."

Matthew 7:7 

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you”

Thank you! I always hated it when I'd say something with a heart to help or inspire someone older than me and they said there was no way I could relate or help.
