RESTLESS

That’s a big thing to put in a human heart!!
Have you ever had moments, that you can’t explain, but it feels so real! An amazing God moment that you can’t put into words. Ecclesiastes 3:11b (https://bit.ly/2NQyasU) captures that well.

There’s this quote in old fashioned English by Augustine of Hippo:
Thou hast made us for thyself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it finds its rest in thee.”

Augustine puts restlessness in perspective. We each have this God shaped hollow inside of us. We so often try fill that hollow with other things. And we remain restless.
God is the One that satisfies!

Using wisdom.

King Solomon believed that wisdom is something that we get from God.

And Proverbs 2:6 (https://bit.ly/2oxBIQa) basically says that with this wisdom we received from God, we will have the ability to find success and happiness in our lives.

While I was reading this verse, it comforted me to realise once again that each one of us can ‘legitly’ trust the plans that God has for our lives and along with that – we don’t have to worry about anything, because He will provide us with everything we need.

“To know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.” – Charles Spurgeon
Now that you have the knowledge how will you use your wisdom to inspire others?

BOXES

You can’t put God in a box. We serve an extraordinary, supernatural, always-everywhere Creator and King. Marvellously, He’s the source of extraordinary, supernatural wisdom, which He makes available to us, always and everywhere.

James writes, ‘If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and He will give it to you.’ (James 1:5 – https://bit.ly/2BRgvrF)

When you feel boxed in by circumstances or your own dead-end thoughts, ask your generous Heavenly Father for His extraordinary, supernatural, always-everywhere, out-of-the-box wisdom.

Words have power.

Proverbs 18:21 (https://bit.ly/36Yd2HD) speaks about how our tongue has the ability to inspire life or death – meaning that you are responsible for how other people are influenced by your words and actions.

Sadly, too many people don’t think before they say something that could potentially hurt someone else.
This verse shows something about God’s anger and frustration when someone speaks without thinking about how the other person might take it.

I believe that God wants us to inspire people around us.
How are you inspiring in the lives of the people around you?
