Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Brother, let me take out the speck that is in your eye,’ when you yourself do not see the log that is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take out the speck that is in your brother’s eye.   Luke 6:41-42 ESV

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.     Matthew 6:24 NIV

Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
    wisdom and power are his.
  He changes times and seasons;
    he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
    and knowledge to the discerning.
  He reveals deep and hidden things;
    he knows what lies in darkness,
    and light dwells with him.  Daniel 2:20-22 NIVlight

While reading my bible one day, Matthew 20:29-34 jumped out at me.

29 And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31 The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 32 And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, blind man“Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.   English Standard Version

I am sure it was obvious to Jesus what they needed, but He wanted to hear it from them.  He did not assume what they needed.  Isn’t that what prayer is all about?  God wants to hear our requests, and then respond to them.  Anyway, the scene came alive in my mind’s eye, but instead of people crying out to see physically, I could see that people were longing to see on another level.  They were longing to see something that would bring them comfort, hope, encouragement and wisdom.

I came to faith in Jesus Christ at the age of 18.  Soon after, I attended, and graduated, from a three-year bible school.  I have met challenge after challenge in this life.  There have been many times when I have called out to God to see more clearly, not with my eyes, but with my understanding, with my spirit.  Time after time He has met me on the pages of His Word with a timely message.  Sometimes without even asking, He gives me a word.  He has encouraged, comforted, challenged, and even disciplined me through His Word.

While there are many people sharing the Word of God, it is usually embellished with their insights,and interpretations.  Here at Wisdom from God’s Word the main goal is to let God’s word do the talking.  We could read part of the bible ten times and the eleventh time see something we never saw before.  It is living and powerful all by itself.living word

Would you like to receive timely wisdom and encouragement for each day?  Will you join with me in saying to God, “let my eyes be opened to see the Word”?  I hope you will join me at Wisdom from God’s Word.

Many Blessings,
