Thought for Friday

James 3:17 NLT

17 But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

    It is very True Nuvofelt ,without God’s Wisdom and empowering through The Holy Spirit, we cannot understand His Truth, worldly wisdom leaves us with doubts and no assurance in our heart. We were not Born with God’s wisdom or The Holy Spirit, we ask and receive.

    Proverbs 4:7 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding

    James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let that giveth to all liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given them. But let them ask in faith, nothing wavering. For them that wavereth are like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

    Worldly or fleshy wisdom

    1 Corinthians 2:4-5 And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

    1 Corinthians 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

    2 Corinthians 1:12 For our rejoicing is this, the testimony of our conscience, that in simplicity and Godly sincerity, not with fleshly wisdom, but by the grace of God, we have had our conversation in the world, and more abundantly to you-ward.

    1Timothy 6:20 -21 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of Science falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

    Proverbs 4:5-6 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: Love her, and she shall keep thee.

    Ephesians 1:17-18 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the Saints.

    Colossians 4:4-6 That I may make it manifest, as I ought to speak. Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.

    Psalm 37:29-31 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever. The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment. The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

    Psalm 111:9-10 He sent redemption unto His people: He hath commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend is His name. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do His commandments: His praise endureth for ever.

    Proverbs 21:29-31 A wicked man hardeneth his face: but as for the upright, he directeth his way. There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the LORD. The horse is prepared against the day of battle: but safety is of the LORD.

    Job 28:20-28 Whence then cometh wisdom? and where is the place of understanding? Then did he see it, and declare it; he prepared it, yea, and searched it out. And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.

    Psalm 90:11-13 Who knoweth the power of thine anger? even according to thy fear, so is thy wrath. So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.

    James 3:16-18

    For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work… Do we consider our fleshy wisdom to be True or what God tells us? if we reject God’s Truth it will lead to confusion and strife.

    But the wisdom that is from above is first pure ….God’s wisdom is not polluted with fleshy understanding.

    Then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated …God’s wisdom when accepted brings Peace, it is gentle to the soul, and easy to obtain there are no fleshy restraints.

    Full of mercy and good fruits …God’s wisdom is Compassionate and Loving and is shown in actions and words reflecting the fruit of the Spirit.

    Without partiality, and without hypocrisy… God’s wisdom stands up for The Truth regardless of personal cost and does not show favouritism or does it say one thing and do another.

    And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace. God’s wisdom is righteous in all it proclaims which brings peace to them who also walk in God’s wisdom and Truth.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne
