Wisdom from God's Heart

Did you ever have that moment when you are reading God's Word (the Bible) and it screams for you to insert your name into the passage to make it your own.  

Well, yesterday as I was reading through my Chronological Bible Reading Plan that happened to ME!

1 Chronicles 29:9-10
And you my son, Solomon (insert: daughter/Kimmie), acknowledge the God of your father, and serve Him with wholehearted devotion and a willing mind, for the Lord searches every heart and understands every motive behind the thoughts.  If you seek Him, He will be found by you; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.  Consider now, for the LORD (Yahweh) has chosen you (Kimmie) to build a temple (your very body given to Me as a dwelling place) sanctuary. 
Be strong and do the work.

How big is God's love for me (and YOU) that He loves us, calls us, fill us, leads us, even when He knows the worst about us, but loves us with His great LOVE anyway.  sigh...pressing in for more...
Want to join me?

Some principles we can live by from this passage:

1.  We need to get to know God personally

2.  We need to learn God's commands and ask Him what it is He wants us to do

3.  We need to worship God with complete undivided hearts (wholehearted!)

4.  We need to be faithful and keep at our Christian walk
(meaning it is not just about getting saved, but learning daily to live for Him)

5.  We need to serve Him with eagerness and willingness

6.  Don't let fear sneak in: discouragement is a form of fear. NO discouragement allowed!
(I know, but it is what HE tells us!)

I've had a very discouraging 24 hours. Thank you so much for sharing this Kimmie!

#4 speaks to me. I remember when 'being saved' was enough - thinking back I was still so empty! I know it's a necessary step, happy that I'm past that step!

#6 has been on my mind a lot lately and I've been working hard on keeping fear and worry out b/c He says so!

AND both of those lead to being able to do #5!
Thanks for posting this!
