Colossians 2:2b-3

I Don’t Know What to Do

LISTEN

“I don’t know what to do.” How many times have you said or thought that? Perhaps you’re trying to figure out your finances. Maybe you’re at a crossroads in your life and trying to figure out God’s will. Or, maybe there’s a personal or business relationship that’s troubling you that needs to be handled in the wisest of ways. Whether you’re wondering whether to take your child to the doctor or your question is of a larger nature, look to Jesus. Why? We’ve seen in other Scripture how Jesus is a treasure that we have within us. But Colossians 2:2b-3 gives us more insight. It says that all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden in Jesus. Ponder what that means for you. Talk to Jesus. Look to Him. Listen to Jesus. Record what He tells you to do. Follow up on His instructions. Walk in the wisdom and knowledge you have in Jesus.

TIP: Each morning, after recording God’s attribute in the first column of my  Prayers of My Heart journal, in the ’Week at a Glance’ section and interceding others, I record God’s “prayer prompts” of what He wants me to do in the ‘Meditations, Notes, and Prayers’ section. Yes, God has things for us to do. When we pause with pen in hand, we’re positioned to hear and do the wise things that He places on our hearts. Returning to celebrate the wisdom of Christ’s ways in our lives and relationships brings a smile to our face and joy in our heart. Walk daily by the Treasury of Wisdom that you have in Christ Jesus. 

Prayers of My Heart is a meaningful hostess gift, gift for family, friends, teachers, and Bible study members.

 

Praise to Jesus, a TREASURE OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE

“Jesus Christ…in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”

Colossians 2:2b-3

Are you at a place in life where you have decisions to make and don’t know what to do? Perhaps you’re at a crossroads and trying to figure out God’s will. Or, maybe you’re in a personal or business relationship and aren’t confident about the wisest way to move forward. Maybe your questions are of a larger nature – about life, who God is, and your purpose.  If so, look to Jesus, whom the Apostle Paul explains is “a place where good and precious things are laid up.”* In other words, Jesus is a TREASURY OF WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE. In Him is the full explanation of God’s gift of salvation and our role and relationship to Him. We are not alone. We can look to Christ. We can pray and ask Him for wisdom and knowledge for how to proceed.

Lord Jesus Christ, we praise You, the TREASURY of all WISDOM AND KNOWLEDGE to whom we can turn.
