Bulletin Notes

“How can I tap into the Wisdom of God?"

All that God deemed essential knowledge for His children is found in His Word—the Bible. Beyond that, all truth is God’s. God has, however, revealed His truth to all humans in the things called general revelation, and in His written Word called special revelation.
There is a difference between “earthly wisdom” and the “wisdom that comes from above” (James 3:14–18). To tap into God’s wisdom, we must, first of all, desire it and ask God for it. “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (James 1:5). The next verse specifies that we must “ask in faith, nothing wavering” (verse 6).
We acknowledge that true wisdom comes from God and that Jesus Christ is the embodiment of that wisdom. To trust in Christ and yield to His Holy Spirit is to walk in wisdom; as Christians, “we have the mind of Christ”.
Love of God, the greatest commandment, is also required. “As it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’—the things God has prepared for those who love him—these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit. The Spirit searches all things, even the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:9–10; cf. Isaiah 64:4).
To have knowledge is to have understanding or information about something. To have wisdom is to have the ability to apply knowledge to everyday life. It is in the reading and understanding of God’s Word that we obtain knowledge, and meditating upon that knowledge brings wisdom. The word meditate is used five times in Psalm 119 and in various forms another fifteen times in the book of Psalms. Meditation is required to fully consider how to apply God’s Word in everyday life.
The book of Proverbs is full of wisdom. In that book, Wisdom calls for a hearing: “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways? How long will mockers delight in mockery and fools hate knowledge? Repent at my rebuke! Then I will pour out my thoughts to you, I will make known to you my teachings” (Proverbs 1:22–23). The promise of Wisdom is that those who desire God’s truth can have it, but it requires giving up the world’s foolish mockery of the truth. “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction” (Proverbs 1:7).
To have the “fear of the LORD” is to have an awed respect of who God is and a reverential trust in His Word and His character, and to live accordingly. When one is walking in the fear of the Lord, he or she is relying on God’s wisdom in the matters of everyday life and making whatever changes need to be made in light of God’s Word.
Those who have God’s wisdom will show it in how they live: “Who is wise and understanding among you? Let them show it by their good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom” (James 3:13).

Mom and Dad were married 64 years. And if you wondered what their secret was, you could have asked the local florist - because every day Dad gave Mom a rose, which he put on her bedside table. That's how she found out what happened on the day my father died - she went looking for him because that morning, there was no rose. Mitt Romney

My dad has given me the best gift anyone has ever given me. He gave me wings to fly. Adria Arjona

A crew of county road repairmen were way out in the country to fix a road when they discovered they had left their shovels back in town. They phoned the county engineer to report their plight. “I’ll send the shovels out right away”, said the engineer. “Meanwhile, lean on each other”.

A middle-aged couple were just going to sleep when they smelled smoke. The husband jumped out of bed, went into the hall and rushed back into the bedroom. “The whole back end of the house is on fire”! he shouted. They scurried frantically into a hallway filled with thick smoke. After what seemed an eternity, they reached the front door. As the husband opened the door to safety, he glanced at his wife and saw a smile on her face. “Good grief” he cried. “What have you got to be smiling about now”? “I can’t help it”, she replied. “This is the first night we’ve gone out together in five years”.

Title:The Camp Heaven Project
Description:Camp Heaven is a 3+ acre piece of land near Talavadi, South India, given by the Lord in 2007. This land was given for the sole intent of building a Worship Center, a Bible School (including separate dormitories for men and women), a building for visiting teachers/guests, and a small house for a caretaker to manage the crops of banana, coconut, and sugarcane, which will be grown, harvested, and marketed to help make the property more self-sufficient and less dependent on foreign investments. The land was named Camp Heaven because it draws attention to the fact that it was, and still is God who has provided so wonderfully for His people and that they may come and experience for themselves His Presence and refreshing on this very special land.
