WISDOM = Knowledge + Understanding!

“The Knowledge of the Holy One is Understanding”
Proverbs 9:10

Some people have Special Gifts – like Giving; Helping; Hospitality;  Health & healing;

The “Gift of Knowledge” – is the ability to store and recall knowledge from God’s word to meet the need at hand. It has the added dimension of understanding.

Near the end of World War 11 a soldier was seated on a train next to a lady in military uniform- wearing dark glasses and a cape over her shoulders. Fellow passengers watched the soldier hug and kiss the lady.

When a passenger became annoyed -He laid his hand on the soldiers shoulders – in protest.

The serviceman explained – “I was  serving on the front lines- and this lady was a Nurse,-  She was a ministering angel to the wounded and dying.  Then one day a bomb hit the hospital. She lost her sight and one arm. Now she is going home to her family.  And I am going with her- because she is blind – and then too, I’m her brother!”

KNOWLEDGE of the facts gives understanding.- Wisdom does not judge!

Amazing Grace! …

What can I say about God’s – Amazing GRACE.
It is available and it is free for the taking.

For it is by GRACE you have been saved, -through Faith-
not by yourselves, it is the GIFT of God…….”.
Ephesians 2: V 8-9.

John Newton, slave trader, preacher, poet,
one of the greatest trophies of grace ever won.
His life truly manifested that “God moves in a mysterious way,
His wonders to perform.”

From disgrace to “Amazing Grace”;
when he wrote this Hymn_

Amazing grace!- how sweet the sound
That sav’d a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.

’Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev’d;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ’d!

Thro’ many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
’Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.

The Lord has promis’d good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.

Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.

The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call’d me here below,
Will be forever mine.

Amazing Grace  – it is more likely to be based on
Ephesians 2:4-9,
Paul’s great treatise on Grace, which says:

But because of His great love for us,
God, who is rich in mercy,
made us alive with Christ even
when we were dead in transgressions –
it is by grace you have been saved.,
And God raised us up with Christ and
seated us with Him in the heavenly
realms in Christ Jesus,
in order that in the coming ages
He might show the incomparable riches
of His grace, expressed in His kindness
to us in Christ Jesus.
For it is by grace you have been saved,
through faith
– and this not from yourselves,

it is the gift of God –
not by works, so that no one can boast.

“The Father’s Love for us!”..

OPAL'S JOURNAL - "TO KNOW GOD" ......

love this is

                                                              *****

“For the Father Himself loves you,
because you have loved Me, and have believed
that I came forth from the father.”
John 16 : 27

The Father’s LOVE is so great that he wants
to reproduce His character in us.
God created us in His own image,
and he wants to restore us back to that condition –
The restoration process never stops, it keeps growing.

The Apostle Paul was well acquainted with the struggles
of the Christian life when he stated-
‘that he was was crucified with Christ and that he died daily.’
He faced the danger of death constantly from outside foes –
but he also knew his enemy lay within himself.
That is why…
