I apologize for the air conditioning coming through during the recording of the devotional. The importance is, the message was still audible. ;-) Enjoy today's devotional along with today's scriptures on Wisdom. God bless you all.
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. ~James 1:5-8
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! ~Proverbs 16:16
A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. ~Proverbs 10:1
Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure. ~Isaiah, 33:6
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction. ~Proverbs 16:20-21
Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, and consider the loving kindness of the Lord.
For the report of your obedience has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. ~Romans 16:19
Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. ~Daniel 12:3
Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those who are discerning listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But sinners stumble and fall along the way. ~Hosea 14:9
Love wisdom like a sister; make insight a beloved member of your family. ~Proverbs 7:4
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, to turn aside from the snares of death. Good understanding produces favor, but the way of the treacherous is hard. ~ Proverbs 13:14-15
"Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her, she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; she will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you. Here, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life will be man. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life." ~Proverbs 4:5-13
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock."
"I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion."
He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful; and a wise man's heart discerns both time and judgment. ~Ecclesiastes 8:5
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which non of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. ~1 Corinthians 2:6-8
Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish....But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then preachable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
Hello my beloveds,
Hoping your week is started off to a good start. If not, blessings to you to change it around. Here's today's scriptures that support the topic of Unity. Something we all should be praying for rather than looking to find something to disagree with one another and divide us more than we already are. Sending love and light in Jesus name. ;-)
Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. ~1 Corinthians 1:10

Be of the same mind toward one another; do not be haughty in mind, but associate with the lowly. Do not be wise in your own estimation. ~Romans 12:16
And He Himself gave some to be apostles; some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. ~Ephesians 4:11-13 (YESSSS - AMEN)

Now may the God who gives perseverance and encouragement grant you to be of the same mind with one another according to Christ Jesus. ~Romans 15:5

Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him.
~1 John 3:15
THough I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity: I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge: and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing. ~1 Corinthians 13:1-3
"You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the sons of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself; I am the Lord." ~Leviticus 19:18

Bear one another's burdens, and thereby fulfill the law of Christ. ~Galatians 6:2

Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king. ~1 Peter 2:17

I just realized that yesterday's daily devotional didn't upload. So yesterday's podcast is now today's daily devotional. Forgive me for that. May you be filled with the Love of God. Enjoy the scriptures on Personal Care.
For bodily discipline is only of little profit, but godliness is profitable for all things, since it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come. ~1 Timothy 4:8
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were brought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

~3 John 2
"Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." ~Matthew 10:28
You do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, "If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that." ~James 4:14-15
And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice-the kind he will accept. When you think of what he has done for you, is this too much to ask? Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will know what God wants you to do, and you will know how good and pleasing and perfect his will really is. As God's messenger, I give each of you this warning: Be honest in your estimate of yourselves, measuring your value by how much faith God has given you.
Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.

Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
~2 Corinthians 5:16-17
Likewise, I want women to adorn themselves with proper clothing, modestly and discreetly, not with braided hair and gold or pearls or costly garments, but rather by means of good works, as is proper for women making a claim to godliness. ~1 Timothy 2:9-10
If you show special attention to the man wearing fine clothes and say, "Here's a good seat for you," but say to the poor man, "you stand there" or "Sit on the floor by my feet," have you not discriminated among yourselves and become judges with evil thoughts? ~James 2:3-4
Here are the scriptures that support the topic on the subject of scripture. I hope they open a window to your heart to draw God's word in. Let it be the beginning of you opening up your life manual - your Bible. God bless you all.
Let the word of Christ richly dwell withing you, with all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with thankfulness in your hearts to God.

"Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful."
Here are the scriptures for today's devotional on Humility. I hope you are having a fantastic day today. May God bless you and your loved ones.
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches and honor and life. ~Proverbs 22:4
The humble have seen it and are glad; you who seek God, let your heart revive. ~Psalm 69:32
When pride cometh, then cometh shame: but with the lowly is wisdom. ~Proverbs 11:2
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death - even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. ~Philippians 2:5-11
"I tell you, this sinner, not the Pharisee, returned home justified before God. For the proud will be humbled, but the humble will be honored." ~Luke 18:14
For thus says the High and Lofty One Who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy: "I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." ~Isaiah 57:15
The fear of the Lord is the instruction for wisdom, and before honor comes humility.
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.
You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you at the proper time.
~1 Peter 5:5-6
Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. ~Philippians 2:1-3
For though the Lord is exalted, yet He regards the lowly, but the haughty He knows from afar.
He mocks proud mockers but gives grace to the humble. ~Proverbs 3:34
"Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven."
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. ~James 4:10
Hello my beloveds,
Glory be to God --- I am alive IN Him!!! Hallelujah! I love you all and I pray that God continues to work in your lives. Here are the scriptures to go along with today's devotional on Responsibility. God Bless you and your families.
In everything you do, stay away from complaining and arguing, so that no one can speak a word of blame against you. You are to live clean, innocent lives as children of God in a dark world full of crooked and perverse people. Let your lives shine brightly before them. Hold tightly to the word of life, so that when Christ returns, I will be proud that I did not lose the race and that my work was not useless. ~Philippians 2:14-16 (Such a powerful and deep message)
And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. ~Luke 1:6
But let each one examine his own work, and then he will have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For each one shall bear his own load. ~Galatians 6:4-5
"Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, each according to his conduct," declares the Lord God. "Repent and turn away from all your transgressions, so that iniquity may not become a stumbling block to you." ~Ezekiel 18:30
Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may be your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God. ~1 Peter 2:11-16
"I will give to each one of you according to your deeds." ~Revelation 2:23
Beloveds we all have had our walks of living and giving in to the flesh. (Me included.) But by taking time to evaluate our own responsibilities in our lives, we are saying, we are prepared to live our life to make the right choices, never to be caught off -guard by Satan's schemes. I've spent a lot of time repenting and re-surrendering my life over to God. I call it a spiritual cleaning. Remember we are not perfect, we are works in progress. God Bless.
Hello my beloveds,
Hope you all have had a wonderful day of rest. May God fill you and bless you for a new and exciting new week.
Teach me to do your will, for you are my God; may your good Spirit lead me on level ground.
Hello my beloveds,

Lying lips are an abomination to the Lord, but thos who deal faithfully are His delight.
I will maintain my righteousness and never let go of it; my conscience will not reproach me as long as i live. ~Job 27:6
Honest weights and scales are the Lord's; all the weights in the bag are His work. ~Proverbs 16:11
But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness nor handling the word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God. ~2 Corinthians 4:2
Pray for us, for we are sure that we have a good conscience, desiring to conduct ourselves honorably in all things. ~Hebrews 13:18
The Lord abhors dishonest scales, but accurate weights are his delight. ~Proverbs 11:1
"Do not use dishonest standards when measuring length, weight, or volume. Your scales and weights must be accurate. your containers for measuring dry goods or liquids must be accurate. I, the Lord, am your God..." ~Leviticus 19:35-36
"In everything, therefore, treat people the same way you want them to treat you, for this is the Law and the Prophets." ~Matthew 7:12
"Do not cheat one another. Do not lie." ~Leviticus 19:11
Providing honorable things, not only in the sight of the Lord, but also in the sight of men.
~2 Corinthians 8:21
And herein do I exercise myself, to have always a conscience void to offence toward God, and toward men. ~Acts 24:16
Finally brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. The things you have learned and received and heard and seen in me, practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you. ~Phillippians 4:8-9
(This one was supposed to be in the podcast. Remember it, live it and be blessed.)
Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? And who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to falsehood and has not sworn deceitfully.
Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him.
~Colossians 3:9-10 (AWESOMENESS right here beloveds)
Hello my beloveds,
