Chatroom – Our Wise Knower

As we discussed last week, God knows us personally. As we read about this week, He knows EVERYTHING. This knowledge makes God wise–He knows everything about how the world works, everything about human motives, and everything about our wellbeing. Because of His infinite knowledge, we are better off trusting Him than trusting ourselves!

From Psalm 19:7-14, discuss the results of trusting in the Lord’s wisdom. What do we gain? What kind of person are we when we entrust ourselves to the Lord? How can we practically apply this in our lives today?

Attention: The mixed-media entries for God our Father are due tonight, and the first place winner will be announced next week. Also, the quiz for the next contest is available here. Since God is our Knower–let’s see how much you know! NO RESOURCES MAY BE USED. Give the quiz your best effort, because the person with the highest score will receive a prize!

P.S. The quiz is available now, but the material will cover the highlights of Week 1 through Week 9. Because of this, the entires will be due on November 6th. Have fun!

  1. We gain inner peace we know that He will always take care of us! The verse says that the law of the Lord is perfect,REVIVING THE SOUL; the testimony of the Lord is sure, MAKING WISE THE SIMPLE;

    1. Great thoughts! Isn’t it interesting that the LAW of the Lord revives the soul? So many people think of God’s rules as burdensome, and difficult to the soul. What does Jesus say about the burden He places on us? Is it a heavy burden?

        1. Exactly the verse I was looking for! God’s commandments are refreshing to us, because they make our souls what God created them to be. It’s not a burden to follow them, but it is freeing <3

  2. (sorry I did not finish) the precepts of the Lord are right, REJOICING THE HEART; the commandment of the Lord is pure, ENLIGHTENING THE EYES… we gain these things by trusting the Lord.

  3. Isabella, I’m hearing that others cannot log into the chatroom! Looks like it’s just you and me for now. I don’t want to keep asking you questions and putting you on the spot–but I’ll be on here for the full time if you have anything you want to talk about. I’m happy to discuss whatever caught your attention! No pressure though, it’s not as fun for you without all the girls <3

    1. I’m on but the computer logged me out of discord…
      One really big thing to me about trusting in God is that sometimes, we can do right, and even other people who are Christians may be against us. And it’s really comforting to know that God’s the one who makes the rules and even when others persecute us, or refuse to listen we’re still right with Him… I personally have been told in a Biblical argument before with an older woman who told me that I was disrespectful and out of place to tell her that she was wrong (discussing whether or not women can lead Bible studies/prayers in groups of teen boys who’ve been baptized. obviously we cannot) simply because of our age difference… So, that stands out a lot to me. We can know, that we are right, even if we’re persecuted for it by other Christians… and that can be a huge comfort when someone’s telling you how wrong you are…
      I hope that made a little sense. somewhat off topic, but that was what came to mind lol…

      1. Glad you’re on!!
        That’s not off topic, that is great input! The law of God allows us to know that we are right–not because we are somehow wise or infallible in ourselves–but because the word of God is perfect. It’s all about making sure that we match up to the word, and when we do (like you said), we have the comfort of knowing God is on our side. What verses can you think of that discuss this topic?

        1. thank you, I really appreciate that, I had discussed it with the woman’s daughter, because I wanted to know how she felt about her mom leading a public prayer… then she told her mother, and we got to talk about it. I wish at the time I had known a little better how to combat that belief… it probably would have been better had I not attempted it…

    1. Well I’m excited you found a way to be on! Sorry about the tech difficulties. The law of God is perfect in so many ways, what a wonderful list! What are some ways we can apply this list to our lives? In James 1, we read about a type of person who looks into the law of God, but never applies it. How can we avoid doing this?

        1. That’s a good point! It’s true that we can get so overwhelmed with our imperfection that we stop trying to be better, and to match ourselves up with the perfect laws of God. This isn’t how God wants us to feel though, He wants us to go through the process of sanctification–knowing that growth lasts a lifetime. I love how in 2 Peter 1, Peter tells us: “5 Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral [g]excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, 6 and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, 7 and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.”

          This doesn’t mean we can’t have knowledge until we have faith, etc…but it does mean that we add to our character over a lifetime <3

          1. If you are trying to fix a whole bunch of things at once then you can get overwhelmed.But if you work on one thing at a time you will be more likely to succeed.

          2. I’ve found that as we work on one aspect of our lives, others tend to fall into place as well! There is no sin problem that is not solved by deeper intimacy with God.

      1. Well we can most definitely read the Word of God which is His law! We must meditate on the law of the Lord-the Bible-…Psalm 1:1-2
        Well we cant JUST “read” it we must meditate( study, understand, etc…) in James 1:21-25 it talks about the “man who looks intently at His natural face in a mirror for he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like” we cant just read the word then forget it we must be like ” the one who looks into the perfect law the law of liberty and perseveres being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts”

        1. I’m so glad you brought up the word “meditate.” We must do more than read the Bible in passing! All too often, we look into the law of liberty, then walk away and forget. As we meditate, or think deeply on (study etc), we are able to apply the passages to our daily lives.

  4. Hopefully we won’t have any tech problems next week. We’ve had issues the last two weeks! My apologies. If you have any questions about the quiz–or anything else–please feel free to message me, or comment here. I love you and am thankful for your work! I’m excited for you to take the quiz, I know you’ll all do really well.

    Let’s all resolve to look deeply into the law of God and APPLY it to our hearts this week! Thanks for your encouragement and wonderful thoughts!

    1. Thank you. I love you ladies and am praying for you and hope you all get a good night’s sleep. Keep up the great work. I know you are so encouraging to so many people and God is very happy that you are so dedicated to Him.
