Trust you in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
– Isaiah 26:4
Thoughts on Today’s Verse…
In daily life, we’ll run into heavy weather at any moment. At that time, who will you immediately remember? Many times I couldn’t find the ways to iron out the problems. The people around me often gave me a heads-up: “You should pray when something happens to you, and commit your difficulties to God.” Not until then did I realize that when something tough happened to me, the first thing came to my mind was that I want to solve it by myself. If not, I’d like to hit others up for help. Seldom did I entrust my difficulties to God and ask Him to lead me to deal with them. God’s words say, “So, in your opinions, what is the greatest wisdom? With your current statures and with the time since you started believing in God, in what way should you practice that possesses the greatest wisdom? You’ve never thought of this, have you? Say there is a person who appears incapable, slow of speech, and taciturn. But in their heart they have the greatest wisdom that no one else has. Most people don’t do what this person does and when they see this person doing this they think them stupid, that what they do is superfluous, and they say: ‘Why are you always doing this? You follow the rules too much and youin such a stupid way. Is there any need to do that?’ So think about it, what exactly is the greatest wisdom? (Always quieting one’s heart before God, praying more to God, being close to God in all things.) You’ve touched a little upon it here. What are you aiming for in getting close to God? (To seek out .) And what are you aiming for by seeking out God’s will? (To find a path for practice.) You’ve understood the general meaning. Is your aim in seeking out God’s will to be reliant on God? (Yes.) By relying on God, are you making things easier for yourself? God does it all so you don’t have to, so you don’t have to go to any trouble. Is this wisdom? Let Me tell you: The greatest wisdom is to look to God and rely on God in all things.” Once, later, I had a problem in my work. I first prayed to God instead of analyzing and resolving it with my method, asking Him wholeheartedly to guide me how to deal with it. No matter how the things went, I’d like to cooperate with God. Then when I went on with my work, an idea came to my mind unknowingly. I felt less pressure to finish my work. Through this experience, I tasted that having God’s leadership was wonderful. And I know God is almighty and wise. There’s nothing that God finds difficult to do. As a matter of fact, we should rely on God when we encounter any matters or problems in our life.
