"Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is." (Eph. 5:17)
My mother always told me, "Sharon, every tub must stand on its own bottom before
the Lord." How right she was. She would further encourage me with four critical words regarding my budding relationship with God: "Know Him for yourself."
She regularly counseled me to "read your Bible and pray, ask the Lord to speak to
you, and He will." She was an awesome woman and a mighty child of God. I love her dearly and look forward to spending eternity with her. Her heart carried wisdom vital to my Christian growth, friends; the same wisdom I pass along to encourage your hearts today:
KNOW GOD FOR YOURSELVES.
Simply ask Him for the wisdom and understanding you need of His heart and Holy word, and He will give it to you. Remember what scripture says:
"If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God Who gives to all liberally and without
reproach, and it will be given to him." (James 1:5)
Holy Spirit will enable your tub to stand solid and sure before the Throne of God. All you need do is ask.
