Wig’s Word of God Today 4-8-2011
And they knew not the hidden counsels of God; neither did they count on a recompense of holiness nor discern the innocent souls’ reward. Wisdom 2:22
Whoever chooses to do His will shall know whether My teaching is from God or whether I speak on My own. Whoever speaks on his own seeks his own glory, but whoever seeks the glory of the One who sent him is truthful, and there is no wrong in him. John 7: 17-18
Wisdom 2:1a, 12-22, Psalm 34 & John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30
Where and when does one finally understand the importance of seeking the counsel of God by practice, praying and proclamation? Did you find it in the streets of loneliness looking for a thrill? Did you find it in the bars of strip clubs seeking to ruin your marriage? Did you find it in the bedroom with a man or woman you knew didn’t love you? We seek hidden thrills of life yet fail to recognize the Truth to accomplish the Will of God because we are too busy seeking the pleasures of life. The LORD wants us to know His Holiness and reap the innocent soul’s reward by seeking His hidden counsels in reading you Bible daily, praying unceasingly and sharing His Son’s Good News with anyone, anywhere at anytime. There is a wisdom we receive allowing us to be steadfast in His love by our practice, prayer and proclamation. Amen.
In John today we learn how the people of Galilee began debating if Jesus was indeed the Christ, the Holy One of God as Jesus Himself remained hidden until He decided to teach once again in the Temple area. His teaching astounded many because He taught with Authority as a Rabbi does because they are taught by one another yet Jesus had not been taught by anyone but God Himself. “The Jews were amazed and said, “How does He know scripture without having studied?” Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not My own but is from the One Who sent Me.” John 7: 15-16 I have learned the importance of seeking the Glory of the Father by my love of doing His Will to accomplish in me works of faith, charity and love. When we learn to empty ourselves and fill our days with His guidance and glory, we learn to live in surrender to His Truth by loving our love of Christ for the Glory of God. Amen.
So we ask in prayer: Dear God, we pray today for the strength to remain silent during our Silent Ignatius retreat this weekend. I ask for Your mercy to hear Your instruction and be guided by Your Holy Spirit to enlighten my heart, mind and soul for the Glory of You. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.

“Spirit led God inspired Christ fed”
Death of Sins for All of You- John 7
To Galilee He went
To attend the Feast
The Tabernacle was set
The future place retreat
In secret He had gone
Only His Word He shared
Openly He sought to give
His Father’s love prepared
Many thought He was Truth
Some thought He was a lie
Did the authorities know He was Christ?
Even as He was prepared to die
You must know My Father
For life to be given anew
Sent from Heaven above
Death of sins for all of you
