The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure and full of quiet gentleness. Then it is peace – loving and courteous. It allows discussion and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and sincere. (James 3:17 TLB)
O my precious God, I ask You for Your wisdom that comes from heaven. Your wisdom is first all pure and full of quiet gentleness. It is full of peace – loving and courteous. It will allow discussions and is willing to yield to others; it is full of mercy and good deeds. It is wholehearted and straightforward and it is sincere. I do not want human wisdom because this will mislead me. I choose to receive the wisdom that comes from above, and then I will be able to see how You create a new wisdom vocabulary within me that will bring forth life.
Instead, God has deliberately chosen to use ideas the world considers foolish and of little worth in order to shame those people considered by the world as wise and great. From a wise mind comes careful and persuasive speech. Kind words are like honey – enjoyable and healthful. He has chosen a plan despised by the world, counted as nothing at all, and used it to bring down to nothing those the world considers great, so that no one anywhere can ever brag in the presence of God. For it is from God alone that you have your life through Jesus Christ. He showed us God’s plan of salvation; He was the One who made us acceptable to God; He made us pure and holy and gave Himself to purchase our salvation. If anyone is going to boast, let him boast only of what the Lord has done.
May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you all of His blessings, and great peace of heart and mind. I can never stop thanking God for all the wonderful gifts He has given to you, now that you belong to Jesus Christ. He enriches your whole lives. He has helped you to speak out for Him and has given you a full understanding of the truth; what He told you Christ could do for you has happened! Now you have every grace and blessing; every spiritual gift and power for doing His will. All the honour, praise, and glory are God’s alone through Jesus Christ, and in the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit of God. Amen.
