FAITH & POWER
Quote Posted on Updated on
Throughout our lifetime, God is always looking for leaders to lead His people through times of change. A complete cipher of peace perpetually followed by understanding follows the person qualified to lead. To them, the truth is always expedient as their way are lighted before the Lord of Peace. Your momentum becomes proportionate to the revelation that God has chosen for you. Beholding Christ inspires the people of God to become more godly. Many people exclaim, timing is everything, as the times come and go, responding to the call of God in your season is everything to become a part of God’s Mosaic in Earth History.

Our relationship with others is a vital part of our life and how others view you attribute to adult behavior. Nevertheless, youthful exuberant is refreshing because of its raw, unadulterated honesty. Childish responses to adult situations at times are looked upon as spots of nothingness to the well-informed adult brain. Children seldom act in regards of how others will perceive them. They just do what is convenient for them and what please their immediate concerns. Adults are full of agendas and political referendums that stack upon each other contributing to a complex compilation of routes and themes that are confusing to the uninformed and impossible to discern for a child. This is why I believe Jesus said: “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” (Matt.18:3) The rules to the Kingdom of Heaven are simply encapsulated in the Golden Rule “Do unto others as you will have them do unto you” nothing more nothing less. In speaking truth, it matters little if you rub someone the wrong way or if you speak out of turn. The Kingdom of is thus, and God designed it to contain perpetual victory for its adherents
I Corinthians 13th also known as the Love Chapter is a nugget of truth that gives us a glimpse of perfected love. “When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things” I Cor. 13:11. In the Kingdom of God, when responding in faith and humility, it is imperative to consider the implications of what others may perceive in what you say or do. A chief concern for those in the Light is not to quench the Spirit, as one decides how to render judgment towards others. When confronted with a seemingly simple decision that requires our words and deeds others take the record with a magnifying glass so to speak.
We are subject to a high level of deception by numbers, yet the Kingdom of God operates on the system of one for example: despise not small beginnings, the diminutive foxes spoil the vine and Jesus left the 99 for the one. In other words get the foundation right, the small things right and the rest follow. Our decisions as Children of God must be based on Biblical insights to provide solutions to proceed as citizens of the Kingdom of God. We know not the entire Sovereign will of God, but as children, we are unified by scripture. Therefore, Spirit-led walking by faith and trusting in God is our best alternative.
Heaven is thus, and God designed it to contain perpetual victory for its adherents.
Thinking about the humility of Jesus and the preaching of the gospel, Jesus taught the bitter along with the sweet mirroring realities giving eternal truths with natural meaning. Making the gospel a fairytale by teaching the good news alone is a disservice. It is also hardship, trials, tribulation, mistrust, division, and turmoil, amongst all the things we got through as saints. Jesus left us two important Keys to the Kingdom one being love and the other humility. God is shaping our humility through love and shape our love through humility. When our ways please God, as we labor we unwitting dodge many unseen dangers; notwithstanding, by remaining humble, we attract a host of angelic beings upholding us as we walk daily through many perils.

Since wisdom requires effort, and it is a human’s natural inclination to recline, acquiring wisdom is not for the lazy. Gathering sense becomes the habit for the naturally inquisitive. It hides well, usually in plain sight and is mostly obscured by false reason. It is readily assessable but must be sought out to unlock its benefits. Virtual Wisdom is like a light placed upon a darkened path. It illuminates and exposes the options for best results in any endeavor. Virtual Wisdom does not have to be esoteric. This wisdom could be already known to others but unknown to some in gathering whatever it takes to succeed. It expands through geometrical progression until it reaches the masses through human interaction. Nowadays, the answer to any question is readily available at your fingertips or on a nearby bookshelf. Ironically, Virtual Wisdom is not yet wisdom but mere knowledge of a right path, but it is filed as wisdom because an effort is needed to gain it. Exhibit 1a: Like going to school to learn a profession or trade.
Knowledge needs a conversion to be wisdom. Intellectual Wisdom gained through Virtual Wisdom is the student of a great teacher named experience. This empirical knowledge can be drawn upon and applied to resolve various obstacles. Also, the observance of the actions of others could preach volumes to your soul and inspire you to action.
Learning from the success or failure of others is a greater teacher than experience but carries less credibility. To succeed by observing others is an incredible feat.
When inspired by others to tread upon the unfamiliar, courage is needed. Courage and faith are the intangibles that are seen clearly as a result of Intellectual Wisdom. Success is bred through the repetition of Courage and Faith, to win in life and to accomplish your goal is the Hallmark of Intellectual Wisdom. Untouched vistas exist beyond the realm of the one who uses the triple alliance (repetition, faith, and courage). These open the world to vast insight upon plateaus that the world has yet to see. Exhibit 1b: Like going to school to learn a profession or trade and then getting a job in your area with an appropriate income.
Common Sense Wisdom
The homespun wisdom that requires no book knowledge just plain common sense is best. It guards against self-sabotage and aberrant behaviors. The spiritual engineering project called life built over time needs great care. Carelessness, youthful exuberance and bad behavior can undo much good that it took a lifetime to build. My mother used to say never quit a job until you have another source of income. A steady stream to pay your bills. She reminded me to make up my bed before I left for school. You never knew when visitors might come. These two things speak to the maintenance and preparedness that life’s unexpected turns could bring and could jeopardize your hard work. It takes common sense to guard against these. Exhibit 1c: Like going to school to learn a profession or trade and then getting a job in your area with an appropriate income and keeping it providing for your family with respect in your community and inspiring all through your gifts.
