Open Your Heart! ~ May 22

Open Your Heart!

And let the Son shine!

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. James 3:17

When we love God, we will receive the knowledge He reveals to us and we will not be deceived. The truth from God is powerful because it comes from heaven, straight from God, the source of all that is good. God’s wisdom is pure, and it contains no artificial ingredients to make it look better or feel better than it really is. It’s the real thing—not tampered with and never diluted.

When we open our hearts to His wisdom, He reveals His truths to us and gives us understanding of what once was confusing. When the wisdom of God begins to push aside all earthly wisdom, we begin to display traits which demonstrate to the world we are His children. We begin to be less contentious and more peace-loving, less selfish and more considerate, less demanding and more submissive to the needs of others, less critical and more merciful, less biased and more impartial, and less falsely tolerant and more sincere.

All those things come from heaven and God. The wisdom God gives us is not wisdom we can absorb through books and sermons; it is the pure wisdom God pours into our hearts because He loves us.

Open your heart and be filled with God’s wisdom.

  1. Truth is within ourselves. God speaks to our hearts. If we listen, we find truth and receive wisdom.

    When I saw the “Open Your Heart!” in my email preview, somehow before I even clicked on it, I just knew “let the Son in” was going to be the next line. I was pretty close.

    I agree with the above commenter, the truth (His truth) is always within, we just have to be ready to listen to Him.

    • Yes’m, we should always be ready, but most of us get all tangled up in the worldly goins-on, and forget He’s right there ready to help.
