To Yourself Be True

That is a saying that my spiritual daughter quotes all the time. She understands how powerful  and how important truth is. Being a person that has lived all of my young adult life in the house of a FOOL, when I received understanding of what a fool is from the word of God. I by the power geven to me from the Spirit of God living in me, decided I didn't want to live in that state of mind.

One of the first things that I prayed and ask God for was WISDOM. God started helping me by putting people in my life that didn't mind telling me the truth, telling me what they thought of me. They did it to hurt me but God meant it for my good. That old saying; "TRUTH HURTS", it does, but it is the BIGGEST freer of all. We don't want to think of ourselves as a fool, but the word of God says in Proverbs who a fool is, it says:

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and disciplin, 1:7

The way of a fool seems right to him, but a wise man LISTENS to advice. 12:5

It is to a man's honor to avoid strife, but every fool is quick to quarrel   20:3

When I started reading the bible with UNDERSTANDING, Proverbs was a book that was very enlighting to me. It helped me to see me and why I had been down sooo many roads that came to a dead end. I had been going around and around for so long, that I had to stop and say to myself, something is very wrong, what am I doing that is keeping me on this marry-go-round. A fool does the same thing year after year, and what keeps them doing the same things is; THEY KEEP THEIR EYES MORE ON OTHERE PEOPLE THAN THEY DO ON THEMSELVES. I tell my friends, I can not do anything to change you, only you can do that, (their was a time when I did think I could change others, but now I know better) THANK GOD FOR WISDOM. So now I tell everyone, ask God to show you who you are, don't be DECEIVED in thinking that you are someone that you are not. Get truth know matter how much it hurts. 

Afters years of being under the control of religious dogma, I can see now that WORLDLY WISDOM is being taught in most churches today. I believe that has a lot to do with why we the people of God are not doing the miracles that Jesus and His disciples did. The bible says in Colossians 2:6-8

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in him.

Rooted and built up in him, strengthened in faith as you were taught. And over flowing

with thankfulness. See to it that no one takes you CAPTIVE though hollow and DECEPTIVE PHILOSOPHY. Which depend on HUMAN TRADITION and the basic principles of this world

rather than on Christ.

Human tratition says; if you are not a member of a church, you are not saved, if you are not saved when you die you are going to hell. And for people like me, that was lost at one time, I believed what was told to me.Then the day came when God said come away from religious teaching and to keep my eyes on Him. Only when I came out from under all the does and don'ts was I able to hear with understanding what God wanted me to do...

I will end with 1 Corinthians 1:19-29  For God says, "I will DESTROY ALL HUMAN PLANS OF SALVATION no matter how wise they seem to be, and IGNORE the best ideas of men, even the most BRILLIANT of them." So what about these wise men, these SCHOLARS, these brilliant debaters of this world's great affairs? God has made them all look foolish and shown their wisdom to be USELESS NONSENSE. For God in his wisdom saw to it that the world would NEVER find God though human brilliance, and then he stepped in and SAVED ALL those who believed his message, which the world calls foolish and silly. ..

And the moral to this story is; Don't be a FOOL, get TRUTH when ever you can, so you can have wisdom...
