“Go to the Source”

Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;

The fear of the LORD is His treasure.

~ Is. 33:6

I suppose I shouldn’t find it surprising that this topic is showing up in yet another place in my life.  Everything we’ve been studying in The Key to Abundant Living and now Be Transformed is centered around God as the Source for the Christian Life.

Dear God,

I know that, first of all, You are the sure foundation of healthy, fulfilling, and meaningful living!  Grant me a willing spirit to make the most of what You reveal to me, and help me to apply sound principles in caring for my mind and my body.  I never want to waste my time on silly ploys or bad advice.  Instead, I will listen for Your voice, and I will hold up every idea to the light of Your Word.  Thank You that You are my closest confidant and my favorite partner.  You [work all things for my good], and You are always right!  Stay close to me today, and bless me with the treasures of Your presence, Your comfort, Your wisdom, Your power.

Amen.
