Many Strands Challenge ~ Seeking God’s Wisdom for 2014 ~ Day 45

Seeking God's Wisdom - Day 45

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 Colossians 3-4 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… 

12 “Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Make allowance for each other’s faults, and forgive anyone who offends you. Remember, the Lord forgave you, so you must forgive others. 14 Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. 15 And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.”  Colossians 3:12-15

We do not live in a very peace filled world.  And many times I have added to the chaos in the world because I have left my spiritual clothes hanging in my closet.  I have walked out my door spiritually naked and my day was reflective of what was missing from my wardrobe.

I want to make a fashion statement, but not with the clothes that I wear.  I want to make a statement that shows Jesus is the ruler of my heart and how thankful I am that He has made me righteous through Him.

I think that I need to post these verses from Colossians 3 on the mirror in my bedroom, it will insure that I do not leave the most important clothes hanging in my closet.  They will be the first things I put on each morning.  And even if the world is at war…I will be living in peace.  The peace that can only come from Him.

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.
