Revelation of His Will

ephesians 1 17

Today’s Word

Revelation

God’s disclosure of Himself and His will to His creatures.

 

Today’s Verse

Ephesians 1:17

I pray that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,  may give you spiritual wisdom and revelation in your growing knowledge of him.

 

After we are saved, we seek knowledge. We do so by reading the Bible and learning as much as we can about our salvation, our Lord Jesus, God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. In the process of learning and through our salvation, the Holy Spirit resides in us and reveals to us the mysteries of God.

We learn of God’s will to us, of wisdom and power that lay within his Word, and we grow in knowledge of the Kingdom of God. All learning leads us closer to his will and guides us to lead a life of godliness. We strive for closeness to God and daily comfort of our heartaches. We seek guidance from the Holy Spirit to gently tug at us and convict us when we err. We seek approval when we do right.

God’s revelation of his will opens our eyes to a heavenly realm and unimaginable possibilities. We now have our eyes opened as the scales of our eyes are removed and our blinders fall. How awesome it is to partake in his revelation!

If you do not know Jesus, seek Him. Allow his wondrous revelation to be instilled in your heart, mind, and soul.

Wisdom: Slow to Anger

Today’s Word

 Wisdom

 A disposition to find the truth.

 Judgment as to what actions to pursue and deliver the correct outcome.

 Requires control of our emotional reactions so that reason prevails.

Today’s Verse

 Proverbs 19

11 A person’s wisdom makes him slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense

As we grow in the knowledge of the Word of God, we acquire spiritual wisdom. It guides us in making good decisions. It helps us with reason and control of our emotional reactions. It allows us to seek the truth in all we see and do.

Wisdom as a Guide

The study of the Bible helps us gain knowledge and understanding of God’s standards for our daily living. It is a guide to Christians as to what is right or wrong, and as to what is expected to be our reaction to all that we encounter. It is a guide to help us control our emotions so we do not exercise outbursts of anger or wrong judgment.

Wisdom as Reason

As we grow in knowledge, we learn to use reason. We learn to make decisions with our spiritual heart, which is guided by God’s word. By using our spiritual knowledge, we learn to reason with our emotions. We allow the Holy Spirit to keeps us calm, think, evaluate, and contain our anger. We use reason as to not offend others, yet glorify God.

Wisdom as Truth

Our pursuit for the truth is led by our Christian thirst for knowledge. We seek justice, truth, compassion, love, and acceptance. Our quest for the truth drives us to use reasoning and knowledge, in order to discern right from wrong, good from bad, holy from unholy, and godly from ungodly. We set all judgment aside until we have examined all the facts and found the truth.
