DAY #6 -- "A Woman of Faith" Devotional
Verse: "But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruit, without favouritism and hypocracy." James 3:17 HCSB
Life is full of problems, and other trials that come our way... yet God offers us a way out of them, if we choose to live the righteous life. Part of that entails using wisdom... wisdom from God above, not worldly knowledge. As the verse above in James says, it is first pure... same as we are to be. We are to be holy as He is holy, part of holiness and righteousness is made of of purity. Wisdom is to be sought after, and then our lives will be pure, peace-loving, gentle, compliant, fully of mercy & good fruit. We will show love and mercy to all, no matter who they are or what they've done. This allows us not to show favouritism or hypocracy. We cannot talk the talk, and not walk the walk. We can't be pure in one instance, and yet not merciful or peace-loving as well, it's all or nothing.
When facing 'riddles' or dilemmas, first seek answers from the Word of God... but after that God has given us many mentors, teachers, pastors and other Spiritual leaders who can impart some of their knowledge, and they can also be praying for you to gain wisdom.
Remember that God is God alone... here's a little song we are doing on our worship team, I love it!! "You are God Alone"
Be blessed and be a blessing!
