When I struggle to learn something new, I tend to think I'm just not smart enough; that the subject matter simply does not fit within my scope of ability.
But I am refreshed to realize that God knows it all. For He was there in the beginning, speaking forth light. He was the Engineer who designed our world of magnificent order. From the tiniest of particles to the grandest of mountain views, our God is the Generator and Planner of it all.
He made the mind as it is. He guided man's thoughts, through which we create new technologies, theories and advances in science. Therefore, He is the giver of all wisdom.
So I cry out to the Lord... I am in need.
Without Him I cannot learn.
Without Him I cannot reason correctly.
Without Him I cannot understand.
But with Him I can be delighted. For He is not only brilliant, but generous. And He will give wisdom and understanding to those who ask.
He tells us that ...
IF we will only accept His words
store up His commands within,
listening closely to wisdom
and direct our heart to understanding;
IF we will only call out to insight
and lift our voices to understanding,
IF we will only seek it like silver
and search for it like hidden treasure,
THEN we will understand the fear of the Lord
and discover the knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5 (personalized)
So I lift my voice to the Creator, asking that He open my mind and and make simple those things which seem outside my reach. And I thank Him for being Our Delightful Knowledge.
from my heart...
I write as an overflow... an expression of my true love for God and with a deep desire to encourage others in their day to day lives. For we can only find peace, joy, and satisfaction when we yield to the One who yielded His life for us.
