Counting Loss

 

Nothing compares
with knowing You

and Your resurrection
power

to share in
Your sufferings

being conformed
hour by hour.

*********

You are with me as my most excellent gain.

**********

“But what things were gain to me, these I have counted loss for Christ.”

“But indeed I also count all things loss for the excellence of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them as rubbish, that I may gain Christ . . .”

” . . .that I may know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed in His death.”

Philippians 3:7,8,10 NKJV

always in triumph
always in Christ.

**********

You are with me, touching lives wherever I go.

Accept Knowledge

 

Accept My knowledge
and understanding

and always
think about Me

for nothing good comes
from idols

and behaving
stubbornly.

**********

I will be okay today only because You are with me.

*********

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge.
Because you have rejected knowledge . . . .you have forgotten the law of your God. “

“For Israel is stubborn
Like a stubborn calf;
Now the Lord will let them forage
Like a lamb in open country.”

Hosea 4:6,16. NKJV

Say The Word

 

Each time
I speak to you

My words are sent
to heal

to grow a faith
in you that’s great

and a knowledge that
is real.

You establish my faith.

” ‘ But say the word and my servant will be healed.’ When Jesus heard these things, He marveled at him, and turned around and said to the crowd that followed Him, ‘I say to you, I have not found such great faith, not even in Israel.’ “. Luke 7:7,9 NKJV

Grief and Sorrow

 

Do not seek wisdom
just to be wise
or knowledge
to be smart

but let Me guide you
in all these things
adding understanding
to your heart.

A laid down life is not lived in vain

“For in much wisdom is much grief, and he who increases knowledge increases sorrow.” Ecclesiates 1:18 NKJV

Stored Up Wisdom

 

As you
receive My word
and treasure
My command

you will find
the knowledge of God
your heart will
understand.

A laid down life has wisdom stored up for it.

“My son, if your receive my words , and treasure my commands within you, so that you incline your ear to wisdom, and apply your heart to understanding; then you will understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding; He stores up sound wisdom for the upright.” Proverbs 2:1,2,5,6

Instruction

 

Ask Me for wisdom
and understanding
accept My counsel
and reproof

for this is the way
to knowledge
how to dwell safe
and secure.

A laid down life receives instruction.

“A wise man will hear and increase learning, and a man of understanding will attain wise counsel. The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge. Turn at my reproof; surely I will pour out my spirit on you; I will make my words known to you. Whoever listens to me will dwell safely, and will be secure, without fear of evil.” Proverbs 1:5,7,23,33 NKJV

Filled

“For the earth will be filled
With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord,
As the waters cover the sea.”  Habakkuk 2:14 NKJV

God’s glory isn’t always recognized.

Thank You, Father, for helping us know more of Your glory this day.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

The earth
will be filled

and all
who are in it

with the knowledge
of Your glory

minute
by minute.

God bless you and fill you with the knowledge of His glory!

Known By Him

“Knowledge puffs up, but love edifies.” 1 Corinthians 8:1
“But if anyone loves God, that one is known by Him.” 1 Corinthians 8:3

One of my main concerns about blogging was not knowing enough.

Lord, in my quest to know You and understand You more, let me not forget the most important thing . . .to love You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

Called To Love You

Oh how I long to know You
to understand You better
to read Your word and feel Your strength
beyond the syllables and letters.

There’s nothing wrong with any of this
but, Lord, most of all
I want to love You more and more
and let that be my first call.
