I am following a daily bible verson on facebook and I realized today how thankful I am that God has put me in a place where I am truly learning Grace!! Without grace, reading the scriptures sometimes can feel overwhelming! I am studying Prov. 4 today and it is all about getting wisdom and understanding and keeping His commandments! With the Holy Spirit residing in my heart, this is easy, in my own strength it would be very hard to understand. Long ago, when I first became a Christian, Grandma Polly would tell me to ask the Holy Spirit to help me understand what I read in the bible. I really had no idea what she meant or that it was even possible, but as much as I love her and know she loves me, I knew there had to be something to that! This morning when I read Prov. 4 I realized that all these things are possible through Jesus. In this Proverb, verse 9 goes like this, (talking of wisdom) "She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee." I am gonna see myself walking around with a crown of grace and glory that has been given to me because fo the divine wisdome Jesus has bestowed unto me!!! Wow, wisdom isn't hard to receive at all, we may read a scripture and God will spend our lifetime explaining them all to us. That is our relationship with him. Just reading without the Holy Spirit to reveal things to us, would be useless! I am so thankful for the wise people God has put in my life! Memorizing scripture really can be pointless, meditating on it and asking the Holy Spirit for revelation= you will never forget it!!!!!!
