Jan. 14th ‘Insight From Scriptures’ By Dr Albert Odulele

Bible Reading:     Jn. 1:1-5, 9; Is. 34:16
Lk. 11:49 ‘therefore the wisdom of God also said, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they will kill and persecute’
The great US senator and statesman Daniel Webster (1782-1852) once said ‘I wonder how any Christian will miss his way if he reads the bible’. The bible is the bank and repository of God’s wisdom; Jesus said ‘…the wisdom of God also said’, which was a reference to the Scriptures.
God’s Word is God. The Word is referred to with the definite article ‘Him’ in Jn. 1:1-5. God is the only wise God so search the scriptures and be filled with His wisdom. Word people are wise persons! Daniel ‘understood by books’ (the book of Jeremiah) Dan. 9:2-3 and obtained wisdom for direction.
Do not stagger into your future; locate wisdom for your journey in the bible. Marriage is a journey, as is business, career, ministry, etc. Get wisdom from the Word before ‘boarding the various flights of life’.
Prioritise the Scriptures and have a study schedule. Paul counselled Timothy ‘till I come, give attention to reading, to exhortation, to doctrine’ 1 Tim. 4:13. Prayer and fasting are great spiritual exercises, but search the scriptures first. The scriptures are able to make you wise.
2 Tim. 3:15 ‘and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus

  1. Electronic communication (cyberspace) has achieved unimaginable proportions. It’s possibilities and dangers are enormous. Pray for God’s hand to rest on it. Eph. 1:21-23
  2. Pray for grace (divine enablement) to be consistent in Bible study _ this is a spiritual battle in modern society and times. 119:18

Thought for the day:
The more of the bible you study, the wiser you become.
