Contemplate God’s Words to Gain His Wisdom (Evening)
Proverbs 4:5-6 Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you.
The current pandemic was beyond everyone’s expectations. Schools and entrepreneurs have to switch their activities online. Whether you like it or not, the internet is a solution for a constrained interaction. This can be a problem for those who are not accustomed to the internet. Such change might be easier for young people, but for adults and elderlies, this is troublesome.
Even for churches, the pandemic is a significant challenge. Thank God, Ps. Obaja Tanto Setiawan prepared the church website and initiated the internet for media service, which is not a coincidence. At first, people were wondering, but the outcome is evidence that God’s protection is perfect down the stretch. We can feel the way God leads us stage by stage. With the internet church, our service has grown and become unstoppable despite the pandemic.
To gain God’s wisdom, we should learn from Ps. Obaja, who likes to contemplate God’s words. Once we realize that all thoughts and wisdom of God are in His words, we will not hesitate to read the bible. We will take it as a NECESSITY to acquire God’s wisdom. Let us, with a humble heart, as for the wisdom of God by contemplating His words so we can be like our leader Ps. Obaja, living full of wisdom and fruits for His kingdom.
Humble ourselves and ask for GOD’S WISDOM by CONTEMPLATING HIS WORDS, and our life will be full of WISDOM TO BE FRUITFUL for His kingdom.
1. Has contemplating God’s words be your necessity? Or maybe you don’t need it? Why?
2. Why do you need to contemplate God’s words?
3. What wisdom have you ever gotten and be fruitful from contemplating His words?
“Father, our good Shepperd, with humble hearts we ask for Your wisdom, let us be free from making wrong decisions in this pandemic. We need You, Father, because we will not fruit without You. In the name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
