    I like what you said. Truth is refreshing, sometimes scary, but always freeing. Once the truth is out where everyone can see it, know it, understand it, then it can be acted upon and actual change begins. The truth is still true even if it gets covered up or ignored. A leader named Pilot once said, ‘What is truth?’ A movie character once said, ‘You can’t handle the truth.’ Jesus said, ‘I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.’ The Bible says, ‘Keep on Asking, Keep on Seeking, Keep on Knocking.’ and ‘He who lacks Wisdom let him ask of God Who gives to all men liberally and upbraideth not.’ God knows we don’t have all the answers, but He says if we seek Him, He will give us the Wisdom we need for every situation and show us a Way out. Once revealed, we then have a choice to either reject His Way, or be Bold and fling ourselves into His answer believing He will come through for us. As the commercial says, Just Do It! Has your way or the world’s way been so great an answer? Give God’s way out for you a try. He will not fail you because He is Faithful. When you need clean clothes there is a process to go through. Sorting, adding water, soap, maybe bleach. Then putting a specific color of clothing in and closing the washer top and turning the machine on. Then you just walk away knowing that in a little while you’ll have clean clothes. It’s the same with baking a cake. Mix the right ingredients, put it in an oven at a specific temperature and walk away, knowing that in a little while you’re gonna have a delicious cake to enjoy. So why is seeking Wisdom any different? Praying is talking things over with God, believing that you’ll have your answer. A difference is the timing is not as clearly defined and so people give up and say things like ‘I tried God! That didn’t work!’ Just because your demand for the answer you want from God didn’t happen when you wanted it to, doesn’t mean He didn’t hear your prayer and that He didn’t have an answer. Parents tell their children Yes, we will do that in a little while, but often they demand their answer when they are unaware that the delay the parent is imposing is for their best good. God says in His Word, ‘My ways are not your ways, and My thoughts are not your thoughts. Unlike some people who say you’re mentally ill if you hear from the Spirit of God, I would recall that Jesus said, ‘My sheep hear my voice.’ I believe there is God Who created that beautiful new crescent moon I saw in the sky tonight. The Bible says the beginning of Wisdom is to believe that God Is and that He is a Rewarder of them that diligently seek Him. Yes, HIM! Jesus taught us to pray, ‘ Our FATHER which ART in heaven, hallowed be Thy Name! Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us. Lead us not into temptation, but Deliver us from evil, for Thine is the Kingdom, and the Power and the Glory Forever, Amen.
