Do we really trust God? What would our lives look like if we went through life trusting and listening and following the voice of God? I got a glimpse of that the other day when I was hanging out after a concert playing piano for a while. This was the day I filmed this video about the hope Jesus gives!
Then I “heard” the Lord say, “Hey, why don’t you go to Voyager Park?”
OK. So I went down there and looked for a parking spot in the shade for the sake of my guitar. As I got out of the car, not really knowing what I was going to do, I saw a couple of guys fishing and felt impressed to go down and talk with them… so I did. They had guitars down there with them and both of them turned out to be believers. One guy named David had on his guitar case written, “Sing for Jesus” and a cross.
David then shared a “surrender to Jesus” song which was awesome! Then Tony was working out parts for his song and he plays awesome. He said he was man of God too! Well, as it turns out I think I am going to join them at the Cup O Joy this Friday night for the open mic night. I think I may bring my daughter(s) down there to sing a song or two.
So, because I listened and followed through with the Lord’s leading I made a couple new friends who I actually want to work with musically (they are that good!). What will our lives look like if we “keep in step with the Spirit” and “walk by faith” every single day?
Enjoy this new song called “Trust Me”:
I was thinking about the man who penned the following words:
Solomon, except for Christ, was the wisest man who ever lived and here is his advice, (this coming from the one who knew the most and understood the best):
“Trust God and DON’T lean on your own understanding…”
I thought about what an ignorant and dependent position God has placed most of us in. We lack wisdom. We lack understanding. Sometimes we think we have a clue and therein lies our danger. We depend on that instead of on God’s wisdom.
In the end perhaps Solomon ignored his own divinely inspired advice which led him to worship and served other “gods”. Even he was no match for the clever deception of the enemy. Perhaps he was intrigued by the “new age” philosophies of his day. As he also wrote, “nothing is new under the sun”.
Isn’t the “new age” of today just recycled old ancient doctrines of demons? The enemy has perfected what works and is leading people towards a one world religion that brings unity and “love” and consciousness and manifest your own destiny and “you are a god so make a better world” message that is becoming so popular.
I can testify how tempting and alluring some of the new age philosophies are. In my curious spiritual seeking I was being slowly indoctrinated myself. I only got set straight when I would spend time soaking in God’s word. For example I would listen to the whole book of proverbs while washing dishes, or a huge chuck of the New Testament on my Bible app while cleaning the house, etc.
God’s word renews our minds from the deceptive and empty (yet very tempting at times) philosophies the devil offers.
I was SO blessed to come across Steven’s Youtube channel last night. I subscribed and watched all 4 of his videos so far. You have to watch his testimony for yourself!
Bottom line: We have a greater and higher and more pure wisdom than Solomon ever had.
“The queen of Sheba will also stand up against this generation on judgment day and condemn it, for she came from a distant land to hear the wisdom of Solomon. Now someone greater than Solomon is here–but you refuse to listen.” ~ Jesus
We have access to Wisdom himself. If you are a believer you have Mr. Wisdom living in you.
“But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:24
He gives wisdom to all who ask him.
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” James 1:5
