Got Milk? 6/29/16
Got Milk? 6/29/16




1 Peter 2:2 (KJV)
2  As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby:  

I smiled to myself as I remembered the ancient advertisement:

GOT MILK?


Remember the white smear of milk on celebrities upper lip?????

Anyway, that has little to do with today's message but, for whatever reason, that slogan popped in my head as I began to write today.

GOT WISDOM?

James 1:5 (KJV)
5   If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

WISDOM-from <G4680> (sophos); wisdom (higher or lower, worldly or spiritual) :- wisdom.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

Beloved, this as a TRUTH/ABSOLUTE FACT that the FIRST place to look for an answer:

" LET HIM ASK OF GOD!!??"

God PROMISED:

Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
 
19  But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

How well do I remember an ANCIENT movie written and directed by Robert Duvall entitled simply "THE APOSTLE."

In this movie, a disgraced Preacher changed his name and began a "new" life and "ministry."

The scene that still stands out in my mind was where "THE APOSTLE: came to an intersection of 4 roads-each leading in 4 different directions.

" THE APOSTLE" was portrayed muttering to himself, "WHAT DIRECTION, LORD? WHAT DIRECTION?"

Oftentimes, in THIS life, WE would be wise to do the same and ask God:

" WHAT DIRECTION, LORD? WHAT DIRECTION?"

Can you imagine the confusion Father Abraham felt as God's Command????

Genesis 12:1 (KJV)
 
1  Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee:

Please note in the above Scripture that God gave NO directions!!!!

But God PROMISED Abraham "a LAND that I WILL SHEW THEE!!" 

Can you say with Abraham:

" WHAT DIRECTION, LORD? WHAT DIRECTION?"

I "see" Abraham standing in front of his tent, trying to ascertain where to point his foot!!!

Sometimes WE have to MOVE:

Hebrews 11:8 (KJV)
 
8
 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.  

It is HARD to steer a parked car!!!

In order to complete ANY journey, one has to first begin!!

Then the KEY is "KEEP ON KEEPING ON!!"

TODAY, if YOU need wisdom:

ASK GOD!!

James 1:5 (KJV)
5   If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

God PROMISED TO UPBRAID US NOT!!!!!

UPBRAIDETH-from <G3681> (oneidos); to defame , i.e. rail at, chide, taunt :- cast in teeth, (suffer) reproach, revile, upbraid.
Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

In the words of Joyce Meyer:

" IF YOU MISS GOD, HE WILL FIND YOU!!!"

GOT WISDOM?????

GOD BLESS YOU!
