Our Need for Wisdom and Discernment

Our Need for Wisdom and Discernment
By Don Twobears

As we all know, we are indeed living in the End Times. How odd is it, that everyone is running around, so worried about this or that, about their money, their house, which car is best…things like that. I don’t know about you, but I choose to worry whether or not I am going to sleep well tonight. A little thing that, seems to be the pain of most of us that are “Older” now.

For whatever reason and yes I am fairly Healthy, I sleep so little at night. I do know I have spent more time, watching the Political Circus, how people are so concerned about things that truly do not matter. I say this because, people spend way too much time, worrying about things they will never be able to control in the first place. I wonder whom It was that told them, they have any such control to begin with?!

I live in Texas and every summer we know it is going to be hot, upper 90’s for the most part. Do you know of anyone that has any control on that?! It is true, we can do things to make those months a little bit easier to deal with, but to control that is still out of our hands. We have Air Conditioned homes and cars and even places that we work and that does make the days easier.

Still as yet, we must work and that means being outside for many of us, or at least running from one spot to the other. How odd is it, we perspire, or for the lack of saying it better, we sweat. This occurs every time the heat of the surrounding air is hotter than our bodies. Still as yet, we slather on Antiperspirant, we run to the car, or into the building and then to the bathroom to cool our faces down with water. Is this a bad thing? No, it is is not. Yet how many times do we Thank the Lord for creating us with this ability to perspire, natural Convection cooling. Or how about a Breeze?

Here is what I am getting at. The Bible tell us we “Will eat by the sweat of our Brow.” Genesis 3:19 And yet, to eat food, means we must work to provide this food, am I not correct?! And another word for work, is to Toil. And we all know, “Work” is a four letter word…right? In Texas, we know to be careful when we work, for fear of Heat Exhaustion or Stroke. So how do we react to this sort of situation? Typically…we are troubled by it, some get angry or hostile, tempers flare and it is never easy. Yet the majority will find some shade and some cool water, which means one is taking “A Break.”

This also includes those working under great pressure, even in an Air Conditioned environment. There are a great many of those and that doesn’t mean you can run to the bathroom for some comfort, right? We use this “Perspiration” by an individual, as a source of way, to tell if someone is lying, still it is the pressure of the situation and it is always natural, the way we were created. Now how many are Thankful for the ability of Convection cooling? Not too many…right?! Again, this is something we are not able to control. I am sure, you are beginning to get the idea here.

The real question is always, How much are we able to Control? The answer is None! Nada! Zip! We were never put in control of anything! You receive the next Breath of air, or the next Heart-beat by virtue of the Lord God! That includes the Sweat of your Brow! So why is everyone so worked up about things, things that you have no control over?! Stop and look around yourself, you will see all kinds of trouble taking place, people all worked up about, things they will never be in control of.

John 15:5 “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.”

It’s right there in Black and White! Why is this such a difficult concept to understand and live within?!

Lets look at all the nuts and bolts for a moment. As I said before, you get the next breath of air, or Heart-beat, because the Lord so Wills it. My Friends, that is the end of it! If the Lord Chooses to NOT give you either of those…your dead!

I remember a very arrogant thing I used to say when I was in the Medical Field, “Stop! Can’t you see I am busy trying to save lives here?!” And it was indeed a very arrogant statement, because I never saved a single life! I helped those that were having trouble, I increased their level of comfort, but I never saved a single one from anything…that belongs to the Lord God! It would seem that all of us take it for Granted, if we use Antibiotics, we’ll be cured from whatever ails us. Yet the answer is always…If the Lord so chooses…we will be healed. So now the question is, how different is that, from all the other things that go on in our Lives? And if you look closely, asking the Lord for HIS Wisdom and Discernment, it all falls to HIM and it has always been that way! Lool at John 15:5 again.

Daniel 2:20-22 “Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.”

Did anyone truly elect our next President? Or was it the Lord God? Did you get your job, because you did such a wonderful job in the Interview? How about your present income? Or maybe your level of living? Since you get the next Breath and Heart-beat, by virtue of the Lord God…what control do you really have?! This always makes me want to bow my head, get on my Knees to the Lord and Thank HIM for anything I have or will ever have. Cause it ain’t me, never was and never will be! There is a lot to be said for the Lords Wisdom and Discernment, cause without HIM, you would never have that next thought!

If we take the next step, we will find, the Lord God in absolutely everything we do. So now, what do we owe HIM?! The same thing as always…everything! Looking at everything from this aspect, why is there so much trouble in this world? Why is there all this death and Killing and mayhem everywhere?! Maybe someone needs to read thier Bible…right?! Maybe tell others, bring that Wisdom?

It seems everyone always wants the same thing, like watching the Beauty Pagents, “We just want World Peace!” Yet the Bible tells us, there won’t be any Peace until Jesus Christ comes! And if we investigate to Word of God more, we find that all this stuff going on in the world was Prophesied!

2 Timothy 3:1-7 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

Again, it’s right there in Black and White! How is it then that so few know of this?! Wisdom and Discernment of the Lord…right?!

Do you ever get discouraged? Feel left alone and things are always working against you? All your answers can be found within the Pages of the Holy Word of God! I know I did!

Joshua 24:14-15 “Now therefore fear the LORD, and serve him in sincerity and in truth: and put away the gods which your fathers served on the other side of the flood, and in Egypt; and serve ye the LORD. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

I use the King James version of the Bible and all emphasis is mine.
