The Wisdom

We have a family meeting coming up tonight, I've been praying for God's wisdom for my husband and for me too. I've been praying for His voice, His eyes, His ears, His way. I read this morning in my devotional a great line: "wisdom is not what you know about the world, but how well you know God." I like that, and each day I seek to know God more.  To be in His presence, and to walk His steps.
As I was praying this morning, God directed me to 1 Peter 2.  This chapter is packed with wisdom.  One of the best is "whoever trusts in this stone as a foundation will never have a cause to regret it." NEVER! And, here's another good one. "Don't indulge your ego at the expense of your soul." And, "this is the kind of life you've been invited into, the kind of life Christ lived."
Christ lived a life totally dependent on His Father. He was very wise! Christ walked in the footsteps of the Father, and it led Him to tax collectors, prostitutes, adulterers, thiefs, liers, and hurting wounded hearts. This is the kind of life Christ lived, he talked to what many considered the "riff-raff" He loved them all!
I am chosen to do the same! Chosen for a the high calling of a priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, chosen to speak out for Him and tell others about the night and day difference HE has made in my life-from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted. I am chosen to love others and be loved.
This is wisdom!
Jesus, speak into my heart today and Say That Again. Wisdom is how well I know Your heart!
