Many Strands Challenge ~ Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014 ~ Day 31

Seeking God's Wisdom - Day 31

Today’s Assignment ~ Make sure that you have your prayer journal with you as you complete each day’s reading. You are going to want to keep track of the verses that are resonating with you, as you read.

1. If you have not already done so, answer the questions in this blog-post;

If you have answered them…review your answers prior to reading today’s assignment.

2. Say a prayer asking God to reveal Himself to you through His word.

3. Read Romans 4 – 5 and as you read, highlight verses that are speaking to your heart and reflect on these questions…

• What is the main point of this portion?

• What does God – Father, Son or Holy Spirit – reveal of himself?

• What insight am I given into myself and into my life situation? Is there an example of a warning to heed? A promise to claim?

• What does Christ require of me now, in thought, word or action?
A reflection on today’s reading…

The other day I read something that I have not been able to shake loose…”There is not a right or wrong way to connect with God.”  It’s one of those comments that at first glance you might say you agree with it, but then as it really settles into your soul…not so much.

I believe that there is a right way to connect to God and that there is most definitely a wrong way to connect to God.   To be sure that you are following the correct way to a right relationship with God, you need to be reading your Bible.  It is your procedural manual with all the right ingredients to live a righteous, faith-filled life.

The book we are reading currently in our Bibles, Romans, gives us clear direction on how to connect with God correctly.  I wanted to share another post with you that further explains what we read in Chapter 3 of Romans, yesterday.  I think it’s important and will help us as we move forward in our study of the New Testament.

20 God’s law was given so that all people could see how sinful they were. But as people sinned more and more, God’s wonderful grace became more abundant. 21 So just as sin ruled over all people and brought them to death, now God’s wonderful grace rules instead, giving us right standing with God and resulting in eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 5:20-21

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
