Think of all the people who cringe just hearing the name Jesus Christ. They must not realize they are perishing. Speak His name. You might help save someone.

1 Corinthians 1:18
For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.


Wisdom. Job goes pretty deep explaining how God saw wisdom and declared it. Job also quotes Solomon, Proverbs 9:10. Solomon had asked for wisdom and God granted it. Ask.

Job 28:23-28
“God understands the way to it,
and he knows its place.
For he looks to the ends of the earth 
and sees everything under the heavens.
When he gave to the wind its weight 
and apportioned the waters by measure,
when he made a decree for the rain 
and a way for the lightning of the thunder,
then he saw it and declared it;
he established it, and searched it out.
And he said to man,
     ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom,
      and to turn away from evil is understanding.’”

I think the trees have it right. They just do their job. They don't complain, they don't covet, they don't sin. They just provide shade and green and a resting place for whatever needs it. Apparently trees also sing for joy.

Psalm 96:11-13
Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice;
let the sea roar, and all that fills it;
let the field exult, and everything in it!
Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy
before the Lord, for he comes,
for he comes to judge the earth.
He will judge the world in righteousness,
and the peoples in his faithfulness.

I love collecting blessings from the Bible. This is a good one. Bless all who read this.

Romans 15:13
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Yes, let us do this. To paraphrase Paul, our salvation is nearer than we think.


Romans 13:12
The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

I think this is great advice, especially for me!

Romans 12:3
For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned.

Hypocrite! Not a good thing to be when you need salvation. The message to us: trust in God. Job did and so did Christ, even when they slew Him.

Job 13:15-16
Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.
Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
He also shall be my salvation,
For a hypocrite could not come before Him.
