I’ve been trying to think about how God has used the Bible in my life to change how I think or act this week. I can’t think of anything. That’s not good.
Perhaps… but it is a stretch. I have been deliberately thinking on Scripture as I go to bed. For some reason I’ve gotten out of the habit.
Of course… diligence and walking in the Spirit. That’s not anything new, and it’s rather embarrassing to keep bringing it up. 🙂
I have been thinking about Solomon’s proverb about God hiding knowledge. God gets the glory when I seek after Him. This observation has a number of ramifications on prayer, on finding wisdom, on studying academic subjects.
It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honour of kings is to search out a matter. Proverbs 25:2
Wisdom is when I apply knowledge, hearing the Word of God and obeying it. All these thoughts are good, but I want more. I need more time in God’s Word, more time thinking about God’s Word, and more time obeying it.
