Knowing God, True Wisdom

The wise men are ashamed, They are dismayed and taken. Behold, they have rejected the word of the LORD; So what wisdom do they have? Jeremiah 8:9

Sometimes when intelligent people realize how much smarter they are than the average person, they get to trusting their own intelligence so much that they get cocky. They think that their brilliance in, say, mathematics, extends to all areas of life. They then haughtily pass judgment on issues of faith, assuming that they know a lot more than the "ignorant" people who wrote the Bible.

"This is what the Lord says: 'Let not the wise boast of their wisdom…but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord'" (Jeremiah 9:23-24). To be truly wise is to admit that, as much as you know, you haven't even begun to scratch the surface of all there is to learn.

In some matters you may be an expert, but in many, many areas you're wise to recognize that you're a small child compared to God, and place your hand in His. You don't know all the answers, but if You truly know God, you can trust that He knows what He's doing.

Prayer: Father, I thank You for the wisdom and expertise You have given me in certain areas. But I acknowledge that You are God, the only One who knows everything.

Thank you brother, words of wisdom.

May I share this psalm also 'God knows Everything'

Psalm 139:1-24 (NKJV)
1 O LORD, You have searched me and known me.
2 You know my sitting down and my rising up; You understand my thought afar off.
3 You comprehend my path and my lying down, And are acquainted with all my ways.
4 For there is not a word on my tongue, But behold, O LORD, You know it altogether.
5 You have hedged me behind and before, And laid Your hand upon me.
6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; It is high, I cannot attain it.
7 Where can I go from Your Spirit? Or where can I flee from Your presence?
8 If I ascend into heaven, You are there; If I make my bed in hell, behold, You are there.
9 If I take the wings of the morning, And dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea,
10 Even there Your hand shall lead me, And Your right hand shall hold me.
11 If I say, "Surely the darkness shall fall on me," Even the night shall be light about me;
12 Indeed, the darkness shall not hide from You, But the night shines as the day; The darkness and the light are both alike to You.
13 For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother's womb.
14 I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well.
15 My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth.
16 Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
17 How precious also are Your thoughts to me, O God! How great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they would be more in number than the sand; When I awake, I am still with You.
19 Oh, that You would slay the wicked, O God! Depart from me, therefore, you bloodthirsty men.
20 For they speak against You wickedly; Your enemies take Your name in vain.
21 Do I not hate them, O LORD, who hate You? And do I not loathe those who rise up against You?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred; I count them my enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties;
24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting.

Prayer: Father, I thank You for the wisdom and expertise You have given me in certain areas.
But I acknowledge that You are God, the only One who knows everything. We thank you in Jesus Name. Amen.

I believe it starts on the circle at Indianapolis. I ran away from it 6 yrs ago. I praise my God and ask for strength. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. In Jesus name, amen.
