THEME: POWER OF UNDERSTANDING
Jeremiah 9:23-24 NIV
“This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.”
-Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom nor evangelical wisdom and knowledge, understanding of natural things, and riches, for such wisdom is brought to nothing, and all these originate from God. 1 Corinthians 1:25 says that, “the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength”. The true and saving knowledge of God has been made known through the gospel of our Lord Jesus and faith in Him, as we are guided by the Holy Spirit. Proverbs 3:5-6 reminds each one to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and lean not on our own understanding and in all our ways submit to him, and he will make our paths straight.
Show us Your ways Lord, and teach us Your paths. Guide us in Your truth and teach us, for You are God our Savior, and our hope is in You all day long. Everlasting Father we thank You for Your goodness and Your faithfulness upon our lives. We bless Your name Lord for You are our great I Am, great High Priest, and Sure Foundation. You are the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last, the same yesterday, today and forever. We thank You for this far that You have brought us and the far that You are taking us. You are indeed our good God, we surrender all unto You that You may take over everything that concerns us. May You reign in our hearts, lives, decisions, plans, purposes, families, businesses, jobs, education, wellbeing, health, marriages, churches, nation and entire world. We submit all our plans and our ambitions unto You Holy Spirit, may You make all our crooked paths straight. May You release our breakthroughs in all spheres according to Your plan and purpose for our lives dear Savior. You are the Vine dear Jesus and we are the branches, may You empower us to make fruit for without You we can do nothing. May You forgive us all our trespasses and enable us to forgive those who offend us, dear Jesus. May You reign Lord our King of glory. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen
