You have heard the word of truth from God and Jesus Christ. If you know the truth, the truth will set you free. Worship God in spirit and truth.
Bible knowledge is the apprehension of truth; wisdom is its application to life. Knowledge is prudent, judgment and wisdom is prudent action. Both are found in Christ (cf. Rom. 11:33; 1 Cor. 12:8) whose wisdom is foolishness to the world (1 Cor. 1:21-25), but who is the power of God by which a believer receives “righteousness, holiness, and redemption” (1 Cor. 1:30).
God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?
Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.

I pray in Jesus sweet name and to His glory through the power of the Holy Spirit,
